Eat. Beach. Sleep. Repeat.

Hello fellow Crafters,

Today's Challenge was set by Kathi and she chose the theme : Bon Voyage/Vacation. This is what she said :

"It's the summer here, which means it's the perfect time for a break from your everyday activities, like school or work! My challenge this week is Vacation and/or Travel! 

There's a lot of latitude (pun intended) with this challenge! I can't wait to see what you all create!"
 I chose to go with the vacation theme as we are probably all ready for a holiday at this time of the year.
Why not hop over to the Stampotique Designers' Challenge Blog and have a go as well. You could win a $30,- gift certificate to spend in the Stampotique Shop. Just no digi's and only one entry per person.
This is what I made :

This is a little art journal. The background was made with Pan Pastels and I stamped over the background with a text stamp. I didn't want to do too much as it is a beach scene after all. I then stamped the bar code on the right. Next I stamped the girl on white card stock and coloured her and cut her out. I also stamped her on the page. Next I adhered her on top of the image on the page. Lastly I stamped the sentiment, cut out all the letters, adhered them and used a black marker to doodle around them. 
I used the following Stampotique stamps :
Barcode (designed by: France Papillon)
Fax to Wolfgang (designed by: Amy Wilson Wellenstein)
Typewriter Alpha  (designed by France Papillon)
Beach Beauty (designed by Janet Klein)

Thanks for stopping by ! 

Hope you like it.....
