Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Summer Fun Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Summer Fun Blog Hop!!

"If you came here from Jeanne's blog, you are in the right place.  If you just stumbled upon this post and would like to start from the beginning, please visit Lisa's blog." This blog hop is all about Summer Fun using Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Files
For my project I made a Super cute Side step card.  I'm also linking this card up to the Craftin Desert Divas Summer Challenge.  I used the Side Step Card Cutting file for my card base.  The sentiment shape is from Sentiment Spots 1 Cutting file.  The sentiment is from Pink by Design.   
This little cutie is from the Little Swimmers Cutting File.  His face is from Peachy Keen's The Moodies Face Assortment.  The sand castle is from the NEW Day at the Beach Cutting file. 

This hunk is from the Bigfoot Cutting File.  Isn't he cute?  The swim trunks and inner tube are also from the Little Swimmers Cutting file.  The Popsicle is from the Popsicle Fever Cutting file. 

I couldn't resist this picture.  He looks so mad.  LOL

The Beach ball is from the Little Swimmers Cutting file and the Sand bucket & Shovel are from the Day at the Beach Cutting file.  The brown I used for the sand is from the Snow Globe Cutting FileIt worked out perfect for the sand.  

Here is the prize that is up for grabs.
