August 2016 Challenge #1

Challenge #1 for August 2016Happy Sandcastle Day

Did you know that today is Sandcastle Day? It's fabulous that there's a day for everything out there.

No! I didn't make this, ha ha! It was part of a display in town last year :-)

So, it's time to be a little nostalgic and be inspired by that most enjoyable childhood activity to create a project featuring sandcastles!

You can find out about Sandcastle Day at Days of the Year.

Guest Designer Karen has created this wonderful layout recording a sand "bump" and let's face it, I think we can all relate to that kind of beach construction! Great job Karen :-) 

Find out more on Karen's blog here

Susan promises that she made this layout in response to the prompt. Check her blog here to get the details.

Leslie's page is about building sand crabs. What? Sand CRABS?!? Check it out HERE.

Don't forget that we love it when you share your creations with us over at our Link-Up page or maybe you'd like to hold onto something to share in the Member Blog Hop on the 24th. :-)
