New Specialty Challenge at PPC!! :) :)

HAPPY MONDAY MORNING TO YA! This is the 3rd week of August and your know what that means. Another Specialty challenge brought to you by Picture Perfect Creations. Megan has done a wonderful job of throwing a twist in every third week to give you a break from our fabby color combo's. Thank too everyone who made it out for last weeks color combo.

So what is our challenge:

PPC Specialty Challenge #9 - SUMMER TIME FUN!! Now this means it must have some summer time fun like, beach, flip get the idea.

This year my family headed out to Victoria B.C. and to a few other places. Everything involved the beaches, ocean and bare feet. One of the things my husband Rob and I like the most about summer is seeing the boats but mostly the sail boats out on the open water. They are just beautiful too watch. So for us that is some summer fun. Now on Thursday it is Rob birthday and with Megan's idea in tow...this card sailed (pardon the pun :) right into being his birthday card. I hope he will like it. Everything except for the black pearls are from Stampin Up! I water colored Marina Mist and Cajun Craze onto the sailboat and water.

I would like to enter this card into a few challenges this week.
Cards for Men Challenge #17 - Anything Goes
Make It Monday - Anything Goes
Sparkles Forum Challenges Challenge #18 - One For the Boys!

Our weekend was so beautiful with the sun shining it sure did help to cheer things up. Oh I found myself reading a book which to me is also a summer time fun item. Today will be a make up for the weekend. Finishing some laundry, washing the floors (don't know why they are sticky but they are). My kids will probably asking if they can play with friends. Thinking of something for know the general kind of day.

Here is hoping that this Monday finds you all well and that you are able to take some time to come and craft. Please join us at PPC for some summer time fun!! I love popping over to your blogs to see what is up with you. Be sure to stop on by to see what my other fellow DT's have created...their inspiration is awesome!!
