Happy Holidays is the New Challenge at TioT

Hello - it's time for a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday and for this fortnight we've got the theme of 'Happy Holidays'  so  why don't you join us an show us what would make your happy holiday.
Don't know about you, but I can't wait for some sunshine after all these cloudy showery days we've been having, and so the idea of  warm summer days at the seaside really appealed to me.  I decided to use some Crafty Individuals stamps to make my summer scene inside the aperture of   the Tim Holtz cabinet card die. I fussy cut my bathing beauty, paper pieced her sun shade and added her to the card front using foam pads for a little dimension.  My tiny shells are real and collected on last years holiday in Dubai.
The rest of the team have some wonderful inspiration for you so please pop over to the main blog where you'll also find all the details of the challenge.
I am entering this at:
  Penny Black and More - Anything goes with  a Stamp
  Craft Stamper TIMI - Anything Goes
  Eclectic Ellapu - Purple team - Life's a beach
  Live and Love Crafts - Sprinkles of Summer

Well, I might only be dreaming of holidays , but I am coming to visit  you and catch up as I've had a hectic few days of gallivanting and celebrating my birthday with family and girlfriends and I've got another girly lunch lined up later in the week with another group of friends - no wonder I get no crafting done!
Have a great day,
Avril xx

I've been absent due to holidays abroad, but now I'm back and trying to get into crafting and blogging routines again:)
What a beautiful summer vacation design with a retro flair, I like how you placed one seagull outside of the frame and the added seashells. Nice paper piecing too.

I love this stamp set and it always makes me smile as it reminds me of warm summer days. All I can say is that I must have a long memory lol! I don't think I can remember a day where it's rained as relentlessly as it has today. Lucky that I've had your card to bring me some sunshine, so thank you. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Sandra :) X
