Well yet another week as gone by and it's time for another challenge at Just Cute Bears...this week we have the theme of "HERE COMES SUMMER"......
I wanted to do something alittle fun this week....Sun,Sea and Sand comes to mind for summer,well it might be in our minds,but it's not always what we get...LOL.
I decided i'd make a desk top calendar for July,seeing that we are almost half way througth June...i'm always after the date,so this will be ideal to sit on my work desk...i will leave it on the easel (thanks Ali),it sets it off perfect!

No colouring on this one,i've used two digital downloads from Cuddly Buddly "Sunny Day Bears" and "Sunny Day Papers".I printed the bear image a couple of times so that i could do some decoupage.
The base is made from a Papermania square scalloped card which i've stuck together to make it more sturdy,the textured cardstock is DCWV.Each layer including image and calendar have been edged with Antique Linen distress ink.
I've added two crabs which i cut from the Sunny Day paper and a starfish from stash,ribbon bow and gems on her hat also from stash.
Well thats about it for son wants feeding...he's only 26...LOL.
All thats left to say is a big thank you to all that joined us on the challenge last week and hope to see you all again this week...
Take care and have a lovely Sunday...hope it's a sunny one!
