Fun In The Sun Beach Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Fun In The Sun Beach Blog Hop, brought to you by the fabulous design teams of Made Especially For You and Digi Haven


These two design teams have joined together to create some fun in the sun beach-themed projects! Inspired by the concept of the Digi Haven challenge blog, all of our creations we have for you today were made using free digis! 

If you just came across the hop and would like to start at the beginning, you're in the right place! :)

For my fun in the sun card, I found this adorable swimmer girl here from ScrapHappy Paper Crafter. They've got some awesome free digis!



I used some fun, summer-themed paper from an Echo Park paper pad (I can't remember the name of it off the top of my head - sorry!) and added a seashell die cut from the Create a Critter cartridge as a fun accent on the card. The 'Splash' sentiment is also from the Create a Critter cartridge - I love using cartridge phrases as sentiments when I can! I added some white rhinestones to the shell and green rhinestones on the digi and there you have it! :)

This card is also serving as my design team creation for this week's Fun In The Sun Digi Haven challenge! All you have to do is find a free summer-themed digi to use on your card and you can enter the challenge. :)
