Corrosive Challenge 152 - Summertime Girls

This week was the official start of summer, and boy did summer start!  Temps here in MA were into the high 90's, yowza.  Hopefully no one has melted into a puddle like the Wicked Witch of the West!  In celebration of summertime, this Sunday's assignment at The Corrosive Challenge Blog is "Summertime Girls" - create a "summery" project using a female image.  Our awesome sponsor this month is Mayzy Art, and she has TONS of adorable images that are perfect for this challenge.  I have used Molly and Booboo with frappuccino available as a single image, or as part of the Cafe digi three pack.  This was such a super fun image, she totally looked like a summertime gal on the go, maybe headed to the beach or out for some shopping.  She is colored with Copics, with a combo of glossy accents and stickles on her glasses.
Sketch was # 242 Mojo Monday -
This one will be going to a friend from college for her birthday.  She's a redhead, so I tried to give Molly red hair as well.  This friend just made me the BEST GIFT EVER for my birthday (it's next week). 

Is that not the awesomest?  I had seen one on Pinterest, and asked if anyone could make it (it's a sampler) and she knew how to do it.  I had almost forgotten about it, and then it showed up in the mail the other day.  I am so in love with it!  I get such a kick out of such a pretty decoration with a funny or ironic saying on it (this one is from a rap song).

Papers:  Echo Park - Sweet summertime, and a page from the Tahiti Beach Stack.
Embellies:  Recollections flower & brads.  Michaels ribbon. 
Punches/Dies:  Pine branch, Memory Box Fauntleroy Crest die, ek Success border punch.

Hope everyone is feeling summery and ready to play along with the new challenge!  Be sure to stop by The Corrosive Challenge Blog to share your entry, and check out all the amazing creations by the design team.  And if you need an image to play along, head on over to Mayzy's Etsy Shop for a great selection of summertime gals.

Thanks for taking a peek!
