1,2,3, it's Summer!

Happy Monday everybody! It's time for another Stamps R Us challenge and this week we have a recipe to follow. It's a 1.2.3. challenge, which is to use 1 image, 2 designer papers, and 3 embellishments.
This week our sponsor is Digital Delights by Louby Loo, and I'm using this adorable Bucket and Spade Peyton digi image. I printed him and colored him with Copics, adding 2 different Echo Park summer designer papers for the background. For the 3 embellishments, I added some magenta ric-rac, a piece of turquoise blue twill, and a little clip with a pair of flip-flops. The sentiment is the flip side of one of the designer papers. This image just makes me want to run to the beach and play in the sand again like I did when I was a kid :)
As always, if you play along with us, our sponsor will be offering a generous prize, so click on the link above, or on the Stamps R Us badge on my sidebar to link up your card. We'll be coming by to look at all of your 1.2.3 creations in the next two weeks, so have fun!
Thanks for stopping by today and have a great kick-off to another week!

Carol, Just adorable and what we need to help up remember what summer is suppose to be like because you could never tell it from our weather here today. 55 degrees and rainy. Anyway, your coloring is fabulous and I love everything else about the card, papers and embellishments. Off to work. I'll try to post tonight.
