...Sizzling Summer Fun Verve Project Parade

Happy Thursday, everyone!  It's Project Parade time over at the Verve Blog, and I am responsible for bringing Day Four of the Sizzlin' Summer Fun Project Parade to the masses!  LOL!  I knew exactly what I wanted to do when the announcement was made regarding the theme of this month's parade.  It's almost summertime, and that means that it's time to get ready to play in the I created a POOL KIT that anyone could grab on the way out to next pool party!

I used the new "Relax" stamp set to create a decorative insert for the kit along with some patterned papers from October Afternoon's Farm Fresh Paper Pad.  The images were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, then colored with Copic Sketch Markers.  I added some stitching and 1" Red Ribbon to the panel, then slid the insert onto the front of the Clear Drawstring Bag.  I filled the bag with some summer necessities: sunblock, chap stick, snacks, goggles, nose plugs, bottled water, sunglasses, diving sticks, and some extra cash.  Now I can hit the pool in style and totally prepared to have fun in the sun! 

Now it's your turn!!!  As with all of our Project Parades, we’ve got some wonderful prizes...and there are two ways to win:

1. Play along with us and link up your new Sizzlin’ Summer Fun creation (posted May 17 or later) to the linky widget on Day One's parade post before midnight June 7th. One lucky stamper will win a $30.00 gift certificate to the Verve Store. Verve Stamps are not required, but we LOVE to see them if you have them! 

2. For another chance to win, be sure to give the Divas a little shout-out in the comments section as they parade their Sizzlin’ Summer Fun creations. One lucky commenter during the course of the parade (May 17 ~ June 4) will win the Verve stamp set of their choosing!

We can't wait to see how you make your summer sizzle, so GO CREATE!!! :)
