Stampin' Celebration Challenge #56

Hi Stamping Friends!!
It's already the first of the month and you know what that means... Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge!!! And this month we are getting a little beachy and celebrating.. S U M M E R!!

Love all these fun summer inspiration pics that Cori picked out. I especially love the blue and orange color combo. That was my main inspiration.

UP, UP, and AWAY

Stamps: Wacky Wishes, Up, Up, and Away
Paper:  Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Polka Dot Parade DSP, Summer Smooches DSP
Accessories:  Apothecary Framelits, Paper-Piercing Pack, Silver Brads, Dimensionals, Twill Tape (retired)

After looking through my stamp sets for this challenge, I decided I really need some new "boy" stamps. I couldn't find anything beachy or summery or boyish. Any excuse for more stamps!! :)

My summer has been super crazy busy fun so far. Lots of swim meets (and practice), water polo games (and practice), and driving kids around to all of it! (Okay, so we mostly just go from one pool to another, but at least it's something!) How about yours? I'm just glad I "had" to stamp for this challenge, or I may have never got around to stamping this summer!! I did get to stamp with my club ladies last Sunday and had a blast. I'll share our creations with you soon.

Make sure you hop along the SCIC Design Team Blog Hop and see what all those talented stampers have created. And then don't forget to visit the Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge and play along with us. We would be thrilled to have you!!!
