Shimmery Summerime! + HOP

Great weekend to everyone!  I hope you all are well!  I know my week is going to be wonderful as my mom and Dad get into town from Florida for my Nephew Connors graduation party!  I can't wait to spend some time with her at the salon!  Mani and Pedi's are desperately needed! hehe

However, this post is all about the  "Summer time or shimmer " challenge that starts today at Sentimental Sundays + 1 with a super fun hop!   


We hope you will join in our “Summery or Sparkly” (plus a sentiment) challenge this week. Our sponsor is the marvelous Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs. This prize will be four INDIVIDUAL sentiment sets from the Raindrop Echo Designs with Whimsy Stamps Digital Collection


Show me the beach, sun, flowers, kids playing in the sand . . . you get the idea, anything that reminds YOU of summer time or anything full of glitter and shimmer.  Either one fits!   Then be sure to join in on the hop for some great fun and inspiration from the other DT's.  The hop ends on June 24th winner is announced on the 26th but you must leave a comment on the way through for the best chance of winning!

This frame's flowers and circles in pink and orange reminded me of a summer bikini or those cute little umbrellas in a punch drink from the beach.  And the ribbon full of glitter and beads and pearls just made it a double for your trouble kinda project!

If you've popped onto my page first . . then return to the beginning here .  So stop by and show me your sparkle and summer projects I can't wait to see them! :)

My craft sale is coming fast and I needed some non-card  projects for summer and there is nothing simpler and in more demand than photo albums!  Everyone needs them and loves to give them as gifts.  So I used up some of my scrap DP on this rectangle frame with a paper mache base from Hobby Lobby.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great summer!  (Take a lot of photos!)
