City Crafter Challenge Blog Week #56 ~ By The Sea

Hi, it is a new week here at City Crafter and a brand new challenge, the theme this week is BY THE SEA, and we want to see things that related to the sea in your project, e.g - sail boat, light house, beach, sand, sand castle, beach chair or umbrella etc. That won't be too tough right, so get your paper, scissors and glue going......

Guest Designer
I am happy to introduce you to our Guest Designer this week - Steph D. from Hawaii

Here's a little about Steph in her own words: Aloha! This is Steph D. from Hawaii, the island of Oahu to be more exact. I have loved the arts and crafts ever since I was a young girl. Love all types of styles including vintage, shabby chic, cutesy, elegant, grunge, you name it. Art is just a way for me to express my creative side and I must admit that it has been a wonderful experience meeting amazingly talented artists/artistes from all around the world who share the same passion as I do. You can visit me at my blog at http://www.sweetcraf-teachick.blogspot.com/  I dabble in cards, mini scrapbooks, altered projects and some scrapbooking layouts. Thank you to Kirsty and the rest of the gals for this special honor. I enjoyed working with the wonderful image from Shannon. With much thanks and aloha.

We have a fabulous sponsor this week. Shannon Sentiments has very generously sponsored all the images used by our GD and DT for their sample work this week, and also offered a $10 gift certificate to our winner. Here's a little about Shannon Sentiments

Shannon's Sentiments digital images range from the simple sentiment to more elaborate large line images... from cute and simple to bold tattoo images. There is truly something for every stamper and everyone on their card giving list. Shannon started her digital images store after realizing she was always looking for that perfect sentiment for the card front, or a quirky saying for inside... and never having something that was just right. With the support of her husband and help from a few artistic friends, Shannon's Sentiments was born. Come stop in and see what we have that will be just right for your next creation.
