It's another Fairy Fun Friday!

Hi everyone!
Today we have a theme...... Summer Vacation.
We want you to create a card/project, LO, anything that reflects your Summer Fun!!!
Well, for ME, it will always be the beach. Carefree days with my brother building sand castles and paddling.
Ahhh, happy days!

Ha Ha!!! I just LOVE Lewis and his (today) older sister Gillian.
(She could quite easily be be his KID sister next time).
I used kraft card, torn randomly for the 'sand' and plain blue card stamped with a swirl background stamp to depict the sea. The cloud  paper is by Pink Petticoat and the sentiment is by Autumn Leaves... Stampology.
I used Diamond glaze on the spectacles to make them look glassy. You can't tell very well though, sorry.
Did you notice Lewis's sunburn!! Ha Ha!!(Courtesy of my Copics).  I HAD to do that as my brother and I ALWAYS over did it on the beach and got terrible sunburn!! That was in the days before all the warnings, so please don't shout at me. LOL

Hop on over to the Fairy Fun Friday challenge blog where you will see the fantastic creations by the uber talented DT!! They have captured the essence of the challenge brilliantly.
I do hope you join in with the challenge. Roberta, always has a fab prize on offer and you could be our next guest designer!!!

Thanks for calling by Viv xxx

This made me smile Viv, I love what you've done to the images, and the torn paper for sand is just amazing.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Cute!! I loved the beach as a kid (mind you we did live in the tropics and the water was MUCH warmer than it is here LOL!). Thankfully we have a beach only 10 minutes away and the kids love going as well. Love the images and your cloudy sky.

Viv, this card is inspiring, how brilliant of you to make them a different size and make Lewis look like the little brother. Wonderful idea and beautifully put together.
