Vacation Time!

Hello again! Happy Friday to you!
Today at My Paper Crafting I shared two cards that I made! The first card I made, I used the stair step fold as the base of the card!
For the sand, I tore the paper first, and then I used a piece of a sponge and used Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distressed Ink!
I used 3 PCW digis! The little boy with the squirt gun is a "sneak peek" that will be available starting this Saturday!

My daughter and her family are headed to the beach at the end of this month so I thought I would make this card for her! :)

 I was trying to think of another way to use this back pack bear digi besides using it for back to school! The first thing that came to mind is kids getting ready for vacation! I know that when my kids were little, they were lost if they didn't bring their back packs with all their treasures in it! We didn't fly much, but we did go traveling in an RV a lot! :)

I hope you are having a great summer!!! :)
Hugs, and happy scrappin to you!
