Paper Players 148


Happy Sunday, peeps!  Happy June!   How is your weekend going?  I am pre-posting this, so I am hoping that I am having a fabulous time with my three college roommates, despite the fact that I did break my toe on Thursday night!  Yikes!  You don’t know how much you rely on a body part until it doesn’t work right!   Anyway, Jaydee has a perfectly-timed theme challenge for us at the Paper Players, because the temps here in PA have been positively summer-like:

Nothing says “summer” to me more than the beach, so I pulled out a beachy set from my stash and started stampin’! 


I used Daffodil Delight and Crisp Cantaloupe for my shell and starfish,


dying some white seam binding to match for my scrunchy bow!


A little embossing and some corduroy buttons, and it was done.  I used last week’s RetroSketches sketch and the color challenge from this week’s Catered Crop, which is yellow!  These colors together make me happy!  And remember, if you have any questions, please send me an email…my address is at the top right section of my blog!

Now, what speaks “summer” to you?  Maybe it’s a color combo, an image or even a photo for a scrapbook layout!  Please share your creation with us at the Paper Players so we can enjoy it too!  And while you’re there, be sure to check out the summery creations the other designers have come up with!

Did you know that a plastic container makes a good “car” for all your Fisher Price people? 



Hey, summer could mean “road trip”!!!!
