PP552 - A Theme Challenge from Joanne

Hello everyone! Joanne here with a new challenge for you this week! Before I tell you what I have in store for you, I'd just like to say thank you to everyone who played along with Ann's sketch challenge last week - so many fabulous entries! This week I have a theme challenge for you: beside the seaside. For many a summer vacation is incomplete without a trip to the seaside, so I'm hoping this gets your creative juices flowing. Nance created a fabulous badge for us this week, with lots of seaside inspiration - but you can choose to feature any or all of these things, or something else entirely. 

And remember: you can create any kind of papercraft project, it doesn't have to be a card - I decided to take a break from my usual card this week and created a scrapbook layout for a change. Before you run off to gather stamps, paper and inks, be sure to take a look at what the Design Team has created for your inspiration!

Challenge Rules:
  1. Create a new paper-craft project specifically for this challenge.
  2. Upload your creation to your blog with a link back to us.
  3. Please provide a direct link to the post featuring your challenge entry.
  4. Please link your card to no more than four challenges, TOTAL, including ours
  5. Please be considerate of our requests; entries that do not follow any of these rules will be deleted without notification.
  6. Have fun, and thank you for playing with us!

And now for our Headliner: 

Mary Deatherage



Mary's beautiful fall card caught my eye the moment I spied it.  I loved the touch of Balmy Blue paired with Pale Papaya, Mango Melody and Cajun Craze.  The texture and dimension on this card were a treat to behold, as were all of the wonderful accents. Her placement of the small die cuts was absolutely perfect.  Who wouldn't LOVE to find this card in the mail! Congratulations, Mary, on being my Headliner this week!

Again, thank you to everyone for playing along with us.  Congratulations to all our winners! Please be sure to pick up your badges here. We hope you will display them proudly.  Come back tomorrow for an fresh Theme Challenge from Joanne!

I just loved Claire's cute little bee with his sparkly wings!  His coloring is perfect and that honeycomb background on top of all that white is a clean-and-simple dream.  Finally what a fun sentiment--we all need to "bee cool" on these hot summer days!  Congratulations, Claire, for being my Headliner this week!

And now for our Headliner: 


Annette Elias - De Kijkkast 

Annette's beautiful three-layer daisy card caught my eye the moment I spied it in the gallery. The water colored background was the perfect backdrop for the softly colored daisies.  I loved how she stamped the sentiment on a free-hanging tag.  The Bumblebee gingham ribbon was a wonderful accent, as were the Shimmery Crystal Effects flower centers. Congratulations, Annette, on being my choice for Headliner this week!
