Getting Cricky Simply Sunday: Summer Fun

Happy Sunday!

This week I was at the beach and I noticed how everything sparkles and shimmers on the beach.  Even the sand twinkles!  Kristal at Getting Cricky challenged us to make summer projects this week, which go wonderfully with her Splashtastic Summer stamps!  I wanted to make mine sparkle like the beach.  I made the sand "clumpy" because the sand at the beach is inconsistent and varying.

If you are a follower you have seen that I have a goal to reach 300 followers by August 25th!  If I meet my goal there is some blog candy.

This week I am adding Fiskars texture plates to the prize package.  In this project I used 2 of the 12 patterns you can win!  The ocean is made with "waves" and the sand is made with "scales."  I cut the ball from Life's A Beach and the stamps are from K Andrew.

This was a busy week.  I gave my craft space a transformation- I couldn't even work in there anymore! As the week goes on I will reveal some of the "after" shots!  I spent less than $25 and I am so happy with how it ended up after DAYS of cleaning! Here are my before pics:

Creative Inspirations- Summer Vacation
Peachy Keen- sketch
Crafty Catz Weekly- Colors of summer
All Sorts Challenge- Free and Easy
