Tilda's all at Sea!!

Morning folks,
Well I figured that this seemed like quite an appropriate theme after such a wet week. Waves in the road and water in the workshop. Blimey I am so pleased to see the back of June, fingers crossed for July! I hope that everyone else is recovering well after the amazing storms.
Well it's time for another fabulous challenge over at Totally Tilda and this time the theme is Sea/Seaside, so many gorgeous Tilda's to choose from so why not give it a go. This time we are sponsored by the terrific Sir Stampalot and they have kindly donated 2 fab Magnolia stamps for the winner.
I wanted to decorate another of these scrummy kraft notebooks  but I got a little carried away (maybe not these most practical decoration!!)
Anyway, I coloured with my Promarkers and Prisma's and just thoroughly enjoyed myself with this project. I then stamped a little anchor on the inside front page to continue the nautical theme inside.

I am entering this into the following challenegs:

Just Magnolia - #163 'It's a Banner'
Cute Card Thursday - #223 'Patriotic'
Crafty Creations Challenges - #176 'Embellish It!'
Simply Create Too - #16 'Country Where You Live'
Simon Says - 'Sporty and or Patriotic'
Party Time Tuesdays - #74 'Anything Goes'
2 Sisters - #98 'Red, White and Blue'

Happy Crafting
Big Hugs
