Summer Fun at Basic Grey

Good morning peeps!
Wow I can't believe where this last week has gone it has just been such a roller coaster and I really need my Sunday off!
Anyway it is time for another fantastic challenge over at Basic Grey Challenge and this time we want to see some 'Fun in the Sun' so think sunshine, ice cream and strawberries and get creating.
Sorry but I couldn't help using another gorgeous gal from Saturated Canary and this cutie is called 'Summer' so she seemed perfect.

I loved colouring this image with my Pros and had great fun teaming her with some yummy papers from the Picadilly collection by Basic Grey. The fab sketch comes from the wonderful Sketchy Girls and I decided to flip the sketch so I worked with the mirror image. I distressed everything with Pumice Stone DI and then added copious amounts of Shabby White Frantage (whatever did I do before this stuff was invented?)

Well that's all from me today. I hope you like her and I'll see you soon.
I am entering this into the following challenges:
Sketchy Challenges - #48 'Karens Sketch'
Passion for Promarkers - #200 'Add Ribbon, Lace or Twine'
Simon Says - 'Anything Goes'
I Love Promarkers - #170 'Use Dies (But NO Punches)
Totally Papercrafts - #169 'Anything Goes'
ABC - 'O is for Open' (Anything Goes)
