Simply Sunday Challenge at Getting Cricky

Welcome to another Simply Sunday Challenge!  The Design Team Members at Getting Cricky have gotten together to bring you some amazing summer inspiration.  Our Theme is SUMMER CELEBRATIONS - left up to each of our own interpretation - you will get lots of ideas on this hop.  Make sure you link up your own summer celebration creation!

I just got back from a week on the beach.  While I was there, I brought all my tear bear supplies with me, as I'm trying to teach myself how to do them.  Well, these are my second attempt at making them.  I think I'm definitely getting better.  I used Paper Piecings By Nikki summer tear bear files and if you look closely, you'll see I added 'Liquid Glass" from  Close To My Heart.  I'm currently hooked on that stuff - it's so much fun to use.

When I returned from vacation, I had a big package waiting for me!!!  All my K. Andrew Design Stamps had arrived while I was gone.  I got myself  SIX new sets.  Guy Talk, Southern Sayings, Sweet July, Food For Thought, Summertime Splash and the awesome free sets (for ordering) Namaste and Merci.  Well, when I saw  "Summertime Splash", I knew just what I wanted to do with these bears!  Now I have the perfect page for my vacation pictures.  Here's a look at this awesome summer set.
Summertime Splash
If you haven't visited Kristal's store lately, you will be amazed at what you'll find.  She not only has some awesome new stamps - but she's got some new additions.  TWINE and some UNIQUE EMBELISHMENTS.  I've been using the twine for awhile now and it is just awesome - not just for cardmaking and scrapbooking, but it's a beautiful addition to gifts from your kitchen....especially with the new "Even More Food For Thought' stamp set!!!

I hope you like my project and will leave a comment and consider becoming a follower - please leave a link so I can come visit you too.  We papercrafters learn so much from each other!!!   Thanks for taking a look today!
