A very graphic sea side...


Well, we're over halfway through the week - woo hoo! Only 4 teaching days of work left and 2 fun ones until the summer holidays commence and I can R.E.L.A.X! Man, it can't come soon enough...

It well and truly feels like summertime now and it just so happens to be the theme of our new challenge over on our PTI blog *wink* We'd love to see your creations inspired by summertime!

When I was younger, the first week of the summer holidays would involve a trip to the sea-side with my family. Although I'm much older now, I'll still be visiting a sea-side destination in my holidays and I can't wait. A trip to Wales is on the cards and it's perfect for me as I'm not very good in super hot, sunny weather (just take a look at my skin to work out why!)

So inspired by the sea-side, I put a graphic spin on my inspiration with this card:


A truly graphic sea-side methinks! Although the seagulls, bucket and spade are missing, I still like this beach :)

What sums up summer to you? Put it into your creations and join in the fun (you only need to use one PTI product to qualify for entry)

OK I've gotta dash again as I've got another card to whip up for a new CASE study tomorrow. My mojo is feeling a little low after feeling kinda drained after last weekend's card making antics so apologies in advance if my card is a little 'meh' LOL! If I do get through to the next round of Gallery Idol, I've no idea how I'm gonna get my mojo back...BTW: Voting closes tomorrow so if you haven't registered your vote, then go do it now!

Thank you so much for stopping by and for your sweet comments - especially regarding Gallery Idol 2011. You know how to put a gal at ease :D Come back tomorrow to check out a shiny new CASE study!

Catch ya later!

Love this sweetie - it's so retro and graphic - love it.

I have no idea how you can even function at the moment - if I was you I don't think I'd be able to think about anything else!!! Good luck in the voting - I've all my bits crossed <3

Fun colours and shouts seaside to me. Shame that up here the weather often doesn't comply to this colour scheme!
