Here we are into September already! Last weekend saw us taking our eldest daughter, Shannon, away to college.
It was a fabulous drive, very scenic and took us about 6 hours in total. We stopped over for a couple of nights and moved everything in for her. She is now already settled and has been doing her first few days of classes and orientation.
This photo is taken just a 10 minute walk from the college - Lake Temiskaming - fabulous and so peaceful.
Best I get on with the normal post LOL!
Today we are starting a new challenge over at Polkadoodles. All our challenges are now Anything Goes and if you wish you can do the twist - the twist this fortnight is Oh I do like to be beside the Seaside.
I have used a few collections to make this card. The mermaid, beach huts, beach ball, star fish and all the papers are from the wonderful Bonbon Belles Collection.
The little girl swimmer is from the Work and Play 4 Collection. I used a scene that is on an envelope in the Cherryblossom Lane Collection - just cropped it so that all I had was the sky and sand. Then also added a little bit of fence from the same collection.
For the inside using the same papers and laving the scene panel blank, for a message.
I inked all the edges of all the layers and then added some dimension with foam tape for the main panel and images. The sentiment is from the Summertime Collection.
And there you have it - fun in the sun - indeed :-)
Now it's over to you. Will it be Anything Goes or By the Seaside :-)
