Dog Days of Summer

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #219 Day at the Beach

This Weeks Sponsor

~This Weeks Challenge~
Day at the Beach
Create a project related to the beach

To qualify for the prize,
be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project
and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used.

And over at BBTB2
Bitten by the Bug 2
Sharon has chosen a super fun theme of
Dogs Day of Summer
just use a dog on your cards, layouts, or projects.

This is what I came up with by combining both challenges...

I used Create A Critter for all my cuts.
The glitter paper is from The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby),
the water paper is from ColorBok (Wal-Mart),
and the sky paper is from American Crafts (purchased at Michael's)

I used my wave scissors to cut the top of the "sand".

The sentiment comes from Craftin' Desert Divas
Destination Fun stamp set.

I hope that you will join us for these fun challenges this week!

I am also going to be entering this into Exploring Cricut
for the Anything Goes challenge,
the monthly challenge over at DL.Art 

Thanks for checkin' in!!!
