In The Summer Time!

Hope your singing that song all day & lets hope it bring some sunny weather our way! We need the rain to go away at least tomorrow if we go to Blackpool!!

Anyhoos today's creation is to show you part of a fab new release over at Platypus Creek....there are the four 'Beach Icon' digi's I have used, also a set of 'Beach Icon' cut files,  which I have used to cut out the parts of the digi images I wanted to raise up a bit to give it some depth! So glad I didn't have to cut those flowers on the flip flops by hand, they were so easy with the SVG!
