Catered Crop ~ Summer Lovin!

Well hello! I have the happy happy pleasure of guest designing at the Catered Crop for their Summer Lovin challenge! I was chosen last weeks winner in the Button Up challenge for this project. With that came the invitation from Linda to join her design team, as a guest, in the new challenge. I humbly thank you again Linda and am delighted to be sharing this project for the Catered Crop today!!


I knew right away that I would use this sweet little image from Ann-Ticipations. I simply adore this tiny girl with her chubby little tummy poking out and those precious curls! I stamped her on a hand cut tag using a smokey gray ink, then colored her hair and skin with colored pencils. Next I chose this Authentique summer paper collection. I made the three pinwheels from scratch. Each one starting with a square (1 1/4", 1 1/2" & 2"), fastening the centers with a DeNami button. A length of light aqua tulle was tied around the bicycle paper, then knotted at the edge of the tag. 



After adding the largest pinwheel, I pulled the end of the tulle through the slits. Small word banners from the paper collection were tucked into the pinwheel centers.

And that does it for me! I hope you'll stop by The Catered Crop on Sunday July 28th when the team will be sharing their projects. Leave them a little love while you're there. This card will be shared on the CC blog then as well! You can enter a Summer Lovin project of your own right now!!! Hope to see your creations in the gallery  ~Lisa
