Hello Everyone...

Time for another Crafty Little Fairies challenge ...Did we have one in June??

The time is flying by and of course we had a challenge in June and thanks to all who joined in...gosh!.. there were lots of lovely projects..

This time round our challenge for July is "Summer Fun" and I chose this cute image from "Raising our kids" it reminded me so much of my brothers..many many years ago.

Coloured with Faber Castell pencils...lots of glossy accents in the water and the fish are glittered up..

Such sweet little boys...MB clouds and the boys red shirt I used a copic R17.

MME papers "Lost and Found Two"....the sentiment I made on the PC and cut the letters out...the bucket off the net...bit of gauze and a MB Cat..

So there we go...and if you check out HERE  you will see my teamies fabulous creations and all the sponsors for this month..

Thanks so much for stopping by and I will be back with my second post shortly and NEWS!!

Hope your week is going well....see you soonish..

Love this image so much Chrissy those boys look to be having a grand time fishing, wish the youngsters of today would do something like that instead of hanging around the streets causing problems. The colours and design are superb.

I love your idea of making your own letter stickers! So much cheaper and you can get them in exactly the color you need. Clever!
It's a fantastic vintage image, a great choice, and you've made such a beautiful summery scene for the boys.
