Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #129 End of Summer

Happy Monday everyone!

Today we are having another fantastic challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog.   The theme is bitter-sweet since I love summer and hate to see it slowly and I do mean slowly fade away (this weekend has been full of record-breaking heat here in Southern California with not much of a let-up for this week) but fall is nearing fast and that comes with so many wonderful things to look forward to as well.

Today’s inspiration came from me loving the beach and how it brings me such peace when I spend time there, especially at the end of the summer when the marine layer has lifted and the days and water are much warmer.  The chair was cut from Life’s a Beach.  I distressed it just using stamp ink, sponges, and little Q-tips to give it the “beach weathered” feel.

Now it is your turn to head on over to FCCB and link up your fantabulous project and get in the running for the goodies and being one of our Top Picks!

Thanks for sharing a piece of “life’s a beach” pie with me!
