Let's Hit The Beach! -Paper Playtime Challenge #54 -Vacation Projects w/Bugaboo Stamps!

Happy Monday everyone! I'm finally back with a new card to share with you all! 

Welcome to another great challenge at PAPER PLAYTIME! We are so glad you are joining us for our AUGUST STAMPING MONDAY CHALLENGE! Our theme for this challenge is VACATION!
How to play along: Make a project with the theme of VACATION using a Stamped or Digi Image/Sentiment. Easy Peasy! So for all you Cricut Lovers out there – you can still play along by adding a STAMPED sentiment. And for all you DIGI Lovers out there – use any Digi image or sentiment on your project.

You can enter as many times as you'd like as long as all your entries are NEW projects and NO backlinks to previous blog posts.

Sadly today will be the last day I will be posting as a DT member for Paper Playtime. I've been going through some personal issues and decided to step down from the team. But no worries you will still see me around in blogland...just trying to make my life a little less busy.

Now onto the card and a little inspiration to get you started...

The adorable image I used is called "Isabella Beach" and is from the Bugaboo Stamps Brats collection! Isn't she just the cutest and she sure is ready to hit the beach!

I used some glossy accents on her beach ball and bucket to make them look plastic...not sure if I liked the way it turned out though. And of course there is sparkle! She also looks kinda! Ah well...

And the inside...
