The challenge this time at SCRAPPY FROGS CHALLENGE BLOG is to do something with a beach theme. I couldn't help but use these summer time cuties from ALL THAT SCRAPS. I have waving emma in the front and sandbucket trevor popping up on the inside. I made the sand castle using a technique I found at PAPER IN THE WORKS. If you haven't checked out this blog please do so. Kim Teasdale is a cardmaking goddess and I worship at her inky little feet. She used the diamond cuttlebug embossing folder to cut out bricks for a tower and the small squares for the cone shaped top, it is awesome! I used the same technique to make my sand castle. I used THIS picture of a sandcastle, sized it to about 5X6 inches and cut it up to make my template. The little pail, shovel and sunscreen are Jolee's stickers.

Scrappy Frogs Challenge always has the most fun prizes and the best part is that winners are chosen at random so everyone has an equal chance. Hop on over and give the challenge a try you will be so hoppy you did!
