Enjoy - Taylored Expressions - SC444

Hi all! Hope you had a Wonderful Weekend! ;-) Things have been SUPER Busy here, but Good! 8-)  I recently got back from Summer CHA in Vegas! What an Awesome show that was!! And Saturday we were off to Angel Stadium for Kenny Chesney's Concert! Yay! That was a Total Blast! I sure do Love me some Kenny! He put on one heck of  a concert!! ;-) Goodness, I've just been running all summer so far,lol so now you know why I've been a bit MIA in Blogland lately. I really do appreciate all your Sweet comments & promise to be around soon to leave you all some Love... ;-) Now for today, I thought I'd pop in real quick to share my latest Taylored Expressions creation inspired by the SC444 Sketch challenge & TE's A Day in Paradise Set! Just Love this Awesome Beachy set! So Perfect for Summery cards of all occasions! 8-)
I had lots of fun creating my Shabby/Beachy card! And SC444's sketch was just perfect for framing my Sweet Beach house too.. Also, I am so psyched that I finally got to use my beloved crimper that I just HAD to have, lol Yay!! 8-) I  really like how this one turned out, wish I had a Beach cottage like this one to vacation in... Sigh...;-) 
I stamped my Dreamy A Day in Paradise Beach House onto Choice Snow White CS with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it up with my trusty CopicsNext I added my Fluffy clouds with a template I created with TE's Cloud Border DieTumbled Glass Distress ink and a small stippling brush. My Mats and BG were created with TE's Choice Kraft CS, SB'sClassic Circles Nesties set, a Crimper, my Snow Cap Paint Dauber,a  bit of foam tape and patterend paper from MME's Blink of an Eye 6x6 Collection. To finish it all up I stamped my Sentiment onto a TE Designer Mini Tag Die cut, added hand-cut strips of mesh ribbon, and a fun shell button all tied up with some Yummy baker's twine. Hope you like it! And now I am off to go finish up some fun TE projects for the up-coming August Release! Whoo Hoo! So stay tuned!...8-)

Here are the items I used for my project today...

Hope you all have a Fantastic day & Thanks so much for dropping by! 8-)
