Girls Just Wanna Have Fun for JUGS493 and PP447…!

Hello All!

Summer is Here!

I’ve been MIA, I went to a

Stamp and Scrapbook Expo in Chantilly, VA this past weekend!

I went with a good friend, Gisele…we had a great time!

So much to do and see for us!

I spent more than I thought I would, but when I tallied up the receipts

I didn’t do as bad as I thought!!!!

One of the Classes we did was on Thursday Evening

called the Mega Make & Take…

It was from 5pm to Midnight…

We made all of what we wanted and brought the rest home to finish.

Today’s Card is made from some of the leftovers from the

last kit in the Mega Make & Take!

Very Beachy and fun!

I used 2 Challengers for today’s card.

An inspiration photo and a sketch challenge!

Here are the Challengers!

 

The Inspiration: Just Us Girls #493  (JUGS493)

JUGS493

I would drink the one on the left!!!

 

The Sketch Challenger: the Paper Players #447 (PP447)

Here is my Card!

100_6195

I used Stampin’Up! Cardstock, Coastal Cabana, for the card base!

The rest of the supplies are from the packet!

 

Here is how I finished the inside!

100_6196

There were quite a few of these kind of sentiments in the package!

 

The packet was all inclusive to make a scrapbook page and 2 cards. I did make the cards

(I don’t scrapbook anymore) so I used all the items to make many cards. I will be posting

them for you to see, and also the items made in each of our Workshops we took!

 

 

Until the next Post…Blessings and Beachy Fun to you ALL!
