Crafty Calendar Challenge ~ Under the Sea

Good morning

It's the first Saturday of the month so a new challenge has been set at Crafty Calendar Challenge.  This month's theme has been set by the lovely Karina who has chosen 'Under the Sea'.  Our sponsor is the fabulous Wild Orchid Crafts.

I have kept the layout simple because I didn't want to cover up too much of this gorgeous backing paper.  I have sprayed the images with Crafter's Companion Spray & Sparkle (Iridescent).  Not sure if you can see it very well but IRL it glistens.

* Card Recipe *

Images ~ Mermaid Tilda & Sea Horse (Magnolia Bon Voyage 2010 Collection)
Papers ~ Websters Pages 'Seaside Retreat'
Swirls ~ Magnolia DooHickey Die
Flowers & Pearls ~ Prima E-Line

* Challenges *

TOMIC ~ Shimmer & Pearls
Crafty Purple Frog ~ Swirls & Pearls
Divas by Design ~ Die Cuts/Punches
Oldie but a Goodie ~ Anything Goes
Just Magnolia ~ Anything Goes

Looks like it's going to be a lovely sunny day here we will hopefully be able to have a BBQ later. 

Chloe is going on a school trip to the Lake District on Monday so I have lots of things to organise for that this weekend.  She has been away before several times with Brownies/Guides but this is the first time she has travelled so far from home and she is a little bit worried about it.  However, I am sure she is going to have a great time and all her worries will disappear when she is having fun with her friends. 

Have a great weekend!
