7 Dots Studio Challenge - Sizzling Hot Summer & a Card for Mei Li:

 
I thought it would be fun to do this challenge - 'SIZZLING HOT SUMMER'- as we're in the middle of WINTER here in the Southern Hemisphere! 
This is for the 7 Dots Studio challenge....
 And strangely enough, this photo of our grand girl, Brenna, was taken in the MIDDLE OF WINTER!!! LOL:):) It's not so bad living in Australia;)
These were 'out-takes' that I printed off wrongly [wrong photo, too, actually!]...& the paper was some I'd made up & shoved in the cupboard....time to use both. Soooo, this REALLY made it a challenge *winks*
 The chippy is from a win from DUSTY ATTIC....coloured, then heat embossed.....that blue glitter is also a WOW embossing powder....LOOOVE!!!!
 Brenna had a ball playing with Lucas on the equipment....& he had a ball playing with her, too....I hope 'play' of some form or another always makes her smile like this:)
 A Silly die cut. Gelatos make colouring in soooo easy!
 Can you spy the 7 Dots Studio goodies???? Look below....
Just 'the' perfect 7 Dots 'Illumination' collection words...backed off with some card stock:):)
And......I managed a quick card for
MEI LI
I think it's due today! The mood board is this:
novacancyI made a vellum flower, which I coloured with Gelatos:
Lindy G passed on some LOVELY Bo Bunny papers to me [yesterday!!!]...didn't take me long to have a 'play', eh? To match the chevrons, I got out an embossing folder that matched:)
The 'hello' is a sticker that I've backed off, then carefully fussy cut around!!! Phew;)
Thanks so much for taking the time to look at my projects
 ~ Happy Scrapping ~ 
Lizzy ♥♥♥
GOODIES FROM & THANKS TO:
