Well we are up to day six over at Bugaboo stamps today and I am again joining in the week long Celebration Christmas in July, which seems to be a popular subject at the minute with several challenge blogs playing host to the same theme.
So today's challenge over at Catch the Bug is Oldie but a goodie + a photo challenge which you can see below:-
I have used two of Jodie’s stamps Tropical Santa Buried and Bugaboo Brat beach ball in combination with a variety of die cut shapes. I love that Jodie has some summer Santa images as I live below the equator and Christmas in Australia is hot! Well usually... so I have several Trop Santa digi's from Jodie and each and every one has been well used and well received.
I have taken my inspiration from the general beach scene and created one of my own...I'd like to think that the little boy is surprised to see Santa at the beach; as such this one will likely find its way to our relatives in England or Scotland.
Know that it is all put together I think I would have preferred if both Santa and the boy had been a little larger, but as they are well stuck down it will need to stay as is…
