Hi Crafty Bloggers 

It's time to remind you of the super challenge at 

The theme is SUMMER TIME

I have made a notebook with my Cinch using chipboard as the base . I first painted the chipboard with gesso and then added prima acrylic paints which I daubed with kitchen roll to make the patterns .

I have stamped Vintage Swedish Coast Cottage stamp from Magnolia and painted them with distress inks and then cut them out and used foam pads to adhere to the surface .

I have used this chippie from Live & Love crafts
 which I coloured with a prima chalk edger.

I have used some embroidery thread with charms also from Live & Love crafts and stamped the It's summertime text also from Magnolia . The pebbles are from Prima and are painted with gesso and acrylic paint and then I used prima micro beads in between for the sand . The crab charm is from Paper studio.

I love the back page I used A Tim Holtz stencil
 to make the stones using prima sand texture paste.

I had great fun getting messy !! I hope you are inspired to join us !!!
