Here Comes Summer

When it gets warm here in the south-east of England I always think of Jerry Keller and his song, "Here Comes Summer" it epitomizes the season of warm sunshine to me. Blue skies and, as we live almost on the coast, cool breezes too.  Also, it shows my age as this song came out in 1959!! Eek!!

Our last challenge this week as the OSAAT Challenge Blog will be closed for the summer until the first week of September. Our theme this week is 'Anything Goes'. Rules are simple and can be found on the blog.  For our last Challenge my teamie, Sue, chose Princess Nataliya by Coosty Creations and you can find it here. Our teamie Nataliya wanted a princess theme for her daughter's birthday and Jane of Coosty Creations produced this sweet princess and some beautiful backing papers too.

I've used one of the backing paper as a base and cut a beautiful die cut using hologram card from Spellbinders 5 x7 Mystical Embrace. It almost looks to me like a tiny crown at the top corner, perfect for our Princess.  I've coloured Princess Nataliya with a mix of Promarkers and Copics and backed her onto the die cut. She just has to have blonde hair as Nataliya's daughter has gorgeous hair and longer than this princess's too.I've used  Memory Box die to cut the bunting and popped on some pearls and feathers too.   I had to photograph her in the morning sun so she looks a lot more colourful in real life.
