Thank You with a Summer Theme

I made a thank you note for some blog candy that I won.  Included in the package was this cute surfer boy stamp.  I saw that a few blog challenges are having a summer theme.  So I used Create a Critter for the sun and palm tree.   The tile sentiment says "Where the Ocean meets the Sky"  I find scene cards difficult.  I think i got the proportion ok on this one.  I am entering it into a Summer Fun challenge at CCR CLICK HERE.  Die Cutting Divas are also having a Summer fun Challenge CLICK HERE.  And Tuesday Throwdown is having a Tropical Paradise Challenge CLICK HERE

RECYCLING DAY

before
On the weekends I usually pick out all of the recycling from the kids waste baskets.  My daughter was home for a few days and she cleaned her closet.  There were 6 Apple boxes from various iphones, ipods etc.  I even found 2 pairs of head phones in her trash.  There was also a box that had perfume in it.  Here's what I came up with.
after
 First I covered the box with paper from DCWV I used Taj Mahal and Natural stacks.  I covered the white inner plate then backed it with dark brown.  I used a circle punch by  Punch Bunch       I cut out a triangle for the top and added a medallion sentiment by Making Memories.  The bird is Shapabilities "Bird Sanctuary"to which I added Stickles.  The flowers are Jolees.  I found Sook Wang tape to work the best.

The second project is the enpty perfume gift box with 3 Apple boxes taped inside to separate my ink pads.
2 great projects that were almost thrown away.  Now I am going to collect Apple boxes to put  Holiday gifts in.  May be i will complete one in time for a Christmas in July challenge.

DITA

I didn't know what Dita sunglasses were until my daughter said she wanted them for her birthday.  They are very expensive so I am giving her some cash towards them.  She showed me a picture of them on line.  This is my best attempt to replicate them in a money holder  I am entering it into a challenge at BBTB2 http://heather-bittenbythebug2.blogspot.com/2012/07/fashion.html  They are having a fashion challenge.  I chose the glasses from Forever Young.  I like that the ear part hung down so the card could stand up.
I cut plastic from  recycled cuttleug packaging and put it over black paper.  The leopard and black papers are DCWV, the bronze paper is Paper Source,  I used my ATG gun and the Forever Young Cricut cartridge.

I"M A LUCKY GAL
