Sisterhood of Crafters - Summer Vacation

Hello dear friends!
Wow!  Time is sure flying by!
It's already time for a new challenge over

The theme today is a fun one ...

Summer Vacation!


Hubby & I went on an awesome vacation this year which took nearly the entire month of May!  Australia, New Zealand, Tonga, Samoa, Bora Bora & Tahiti  It was AMAZING!!!    Everyone who knows me is aware that I do NOT like to wear shoes!  I am definitely a FLIP FLOP kinda gal!!   My motto is 'No Snow, No Shoes'!!!

A couple summers ago while visiting my BFF Diane (Nellie's Nest), we were shopping in Shipshewana, IN and found this fun 6x6 paper pack by PhotoPlay called  'Summer Daydreams'.  The shorts & flip flops are by Cheery Lynn Designs and the sentiment is by Impression Obsession.


Aren't those flip flops cool?
Not sure how they are going to look after being flattened in an envelope
but hopefully the recipient will understand and 'spring them back up'. 

I've used the same paper for my flip flops & shorts.  However, to make the shorts stand out better against this beautiful but busy background, I decided I needed to do some matting!  So, after using bakers twine to create my swim trunks tightening strings, I adhered the shorts to lime green card stock and fussy cut around the shape.  That wasn't quiet enough so I adhered them to a scrap of black card stock and once again fussy cut around to create depth & dimension.


I also die cut my sentiment twice and off set the letters to create a 'shadow effect'.

I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun at The Sisterhood of Crafters!
