Summer Fun with Cut-it-Up Challenges

Though it technically isn't summer just yet (6/21 is the solstice), I am happy to share that I have already kicked summer off hard core.  First we've had some fabulous May weather in Seattle- 80's and beautiful.  And my family and I made a trip to San Diego to enjoy the beach and attractions.  So I am pretty sure I've started the season off right, what about you?!

Here's one way to get in the summer mood.  Come join us for the Cut-it-Up Summer Vacation Challenge!  I know there are going to be sooooooo many fabulous creations!  I envision popsicles, ice cream, swimming, camping, sandcastles and more.  It is your chance to show us what summer vacation means to you!

My inspiration was driven by out yearly trips to the Oregon Coast and even the trip to San Diego we just took.  In those types of places you always see beach signs, "Beach this way" or "life at the beach is better" and the like.  My message is "Beach or Bust!"  I used a variety of dies on this project for the fun look.  First is the shells that are a retired Quickcutz die, the license plate is from My Favorite Things and the letters are Lawn Fawn.  I masked some stamps from the Neat and Tangled Just for You set to make the "or bust!"  Last but definitely not least, I used some twine from our fabulous sponsor Trendy Twine to string my sign up!

And of course there is a prize up for grabs if you decide to play!!!!  A sample pack of 4 colors of twine from Trendy Twine and an Artful Delights card kit- whoop!  So go get your summer started right! :)
