Creative Expressions - Sand Pit Fun

Good morning, it's bright and sunny here this morning and hopefully it's sunny wherever you are :-).  It's Monday which means it's time for my Creative Expressions Blog creation and this week I won't have a step by step for you!!!  purely because it was really easy to do which surprised even me lol.  The Beach stamps from Sue Wilson are truly gorgeous and I wanted to take the four children and show how awesome they can be on their own.  I wasn't sure if I would need to glue etc so I decided to use alcohol markers instead, also a lot of people use them so I wanted to show how they colour up (details of what I used are at the bottom of the page and colours I used).  As always I will highlight the Creative Expressions products in red :-)
I would like to enter the following challenges -

Addicted to Stamps Challenge Blog - Outdoors

They can be in a sand pit, or at the beach, but I'm sure their imagination
makes it an adventure :-)

This shell is 13cm wide and I filled it with sand (kids sand).  I stamped 
Creative Expressions Single Stamp Beach Bucket Bliss, Beauty and the Beach,
Treasure Seeker and I Spy with Memento ink pad black.
When I cut the images out I left a small flap of card at the bottom so they can
be poked into the sand so the characters can move.
And of course I so needed to use another Creative Expressions Straw Hat
embellishment, they are so cute :-).  I really expected this to be hard but
it wasn't, it's something that I knew I wanted to do the minute I saw the stamps.
The only think I regret is that I was sure I had edged the characters after I cut
them out with a grey but I didn't which means you can see the card, which
I didn't notice until I uploaded the pictures.

Right that's all for today, I have a post for everyday this week!!! so hope to see you back.  Thanks for visiting.
Happy Crafting :-)

So, so clever, Kerry! The children are adorable, and you've created such delicious depth in your scene, as well as dynamic movement with how they're each positioned looking in different directions... and another of those adorable straw hats to finish it off - brilliant!
