The DT have been working hard this week to create some inspiring projects for you, so be sure to check them out on the challenge blog and you can visit their blogs by clicking on their names.

Here is my DT project for the 'Beach Theme'.

I've used FF papers from 'It's So Distressing Vol.5 for the castle and 'Gorjuss Ginghams' for the flag. I cut the castle shape by hand approx 6" width at the bottom, finishing as approx 5 1/2" width across the top, the height is the approx 7 1/2". Mounted the castle shape onto a 5 x 5 base card. I've used some shells which I've had in my craft stash for years, and stuck them along the bottom, then used some card candy as pebbles running along the top. I made the flag using a cocktail stick then hand cut the flag attaching to the cocktail stick. With some scissors I carefully shaped the flag into a wave to give some defintition. The poem I found on an internet search and is by John McLeod, cut using Labels 2 nesties in the bug and also mounted onto some embossed pearlised cream card, lightly chalked in blue. And finally before mounting the poem onto the card I punched some holes in two corners and tied some beige funky wool through them. Below is a closer picture of the poem.

I do hope you'll join us for this weeks challenge the DT love visiting your blogs and seeing all your creations!!!

Well what wonderful weather we are having here in the UK this week, it looks like it's going to be another scorcher today, but I must do some crafting today in my little craft cave after a being a little slack the past few days what with going out with Emma on Monday then yesterday Steve and myself headed to the coast ending up at Cleethorpes and then Mablethorpe with Mollie for a good old run on the beach and a paddle. The only thing I miss from living down in Sussex is the sea, living only 5 mins from the sea was lovely, though Worthing beach doesn't have the lovely sand that we see on the beaches on some of the north east coast, but I do love the sea air. We enjoyed yesterday so much we're hoping to do it again tomorrow. Enjoy your day everyone!!

Hi Joanne, This is fab! Such a clever idea. I too love the beach and often go to Wells which is on the North Norfolk coast. We went on holiday to Mablethorpe a few years ago and also visited Cleethorpes.
