I'm a Guest Designer today over My Sheri Crafts

I am so happy to post today my guest designer project for My Sheri Crafts Summer Lovin' theme challenge this week. 

I have been traveling a lot for work the last 6 weeks so I don't get to check all the wonderful blogs I follow daily. So boy, was I surprised and excited when I got Sheri's email letting me know I won the Guest Design spot for challenge #84! Thanks Sheri!!!
Once I got back home, I went straight to work on my project. 
When I think of summer, I think of water, sun and swimming. So this is what I came up with. I used glossy accents on the snorkel mask- I know it is hard to see in this photo. 


I had a great time doing this project and hope all of you join in on the fun this week as well. Just hop over to My Sheri Carfts blog and link up!


Here's how I did it...
Base card is standard A2 on white card stock
Pattern paper from Echo Park 6x6 Hello Summer paper pack
All other paper from my scrap box
Elmo/layers cut at 3.25" from Sesame Street Seasons cart
Wave cut at 1" from Life's a Beach cart and layered on top of a strip of dark blue paper
Sun/layers cut at 2.4" from Pooh and Friends cart
Mat/layers cut to size from Elegant Edges cart
Sentiment from BugBites All Year Round stamp set
Tim Holtz ink on all edges
Buttons from my stash
Glossy accents on mask
