Pretty Paper, Pretty Paper Hot, Hot, Hot! Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Hot, Hot, Hot! Blog Hop.

If you came here from Leah'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.  Today we are making Hot, Hot, Hot!-themed projects using Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons files.  

One of the things we like to do to cool off is go to the beach.  I recently took my 3 boys to the beach and they had a blast.  

For the waves I used the Borders 5 Cutting File.  To make the big wave that he is surfing on I welded the Wave and the Curling wave together.  I didn't use all of the curling wave.  I just used the part I wanted and cut the rest of it off.  They are both from the Surf's Up Cutting File.  The surfer boy and title are also from the Surf's Up Cutting File.    For the title I just took the letters and then offset them to make a shadow for them.  

The sun is from the Day at the Beach Cutting File.  All of these Cutting Files are from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons.  The surfer boy's face is from Peachy Keen's Boy Mates Face Assortment.
