Happy Friday, friends!!
Where do the days go, for crying out loud?!! I swear the weeks just disappear right before my eyes lately. And as is always the case on Fridays, it’s time once again for the newest CAS-ual Fridays Challenge! This challenge is so perfectly timed for this time of year – which is to create a CLEAN & SIMPLE project that incorporates something from the ocean!
This week’s sponsor is Stop and Scrap, the purveyor of everything scrapbooking – like everything you could possibly need or want! Stop and Scrap has very kindly provided an amazing prize for this week’s TGIF Winner, but you’ll have to pop into the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Blog to find out what it is. While you’re there, be sure and check out the over the moon amazing inspiration that the other Girl Fridays have cooked up for you. Thank you, Stop and Scrap!
My mind literally exploded with ideas for this challenge, but ultimately, this is what I settled on. I adore this sweet little goldfish from the Paper Smooches’ set called Surf and Turf. In fact, this set has soooo many fun images that I had a hard time choosing! I stamped the waves on the aqua panel, and then stamped the bubbles from Surf and Turf. I added a bit of gradient bling to really jazz up those bubbles. Pretty stinkin’ cute, right?!
STAMPS: Surf and Turf (Paper Smooches Stamps), Hooked on You (W Plus 9 Designs)
INK: Pool (Fresh Ink), Black (Hero Arts/Memories)
PAPER: Baja Breeze (Stampin’ Up!), Solar White (Neenah), Dots & Stripes Homefront (Echo Park)
OTHER: Linen Impression Plate and Orange Ribbon (PTI), Googlie Eye (from my stash), 1-3/4” Circle Punch (EK Success), Self-adhesive gems (Doodlebug Designs)
Well, friends, that’s it for me today. I’m helping a friend put on a 50th birthday party tonight and hope to get some time in my craft room on Saturday. Hopefully you have some great plans for the weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by today – I sure appreciate it!
