Peachy Keen Guest Designer: Week 11, Day 5

Hi Peachy friends and Happy Friday!  Stephanie here for my last day as a Peachy Keen Stamps guest designer.  I am really sad to see this week come to an end, but I truly had such a fun time!  I'm also a bit upset at the crazy weather... we had beautiful warm weather here for the last few days, but the temperature dropped about 40 degrees and it was only in the 30s yesterday!

My project today is definitely a good distraction from the cold weather!
 (Hubby's face is covered for his privacy.)
My hubby and I went to Mexico for our anniversary this past October. I would say it is quite an accomplishment for me to get a scrapbook page made just 5 months later.  I haven't even started on our wedding album and it's been a year and a half ago!

I got a little creative with the crab's face.  I used eyes from the Critter Faces set and a mouth from the Everyday Character set.
I used a VersaMark pen on the edges of the water and embossed it white embossing powder to make it look more realistic.
I also used a sponge dauber with some white ink to make some light clouds in the sky.

The sun's face is actually from the Critter Faces set.  Isn't it awesome that you can use this set on anything... not just animals!?!

Materials used:
Stamps - PK-754 Critter Faces set (Medium), PK-490 Everyday Character Face Assortment, Bit of Burlap background stamp from Market Street Stamps (on the tree)
Ink - Black VersaFine, Stampin' Up Chocolate Chip, Papertrey Ink Fresh Snow
Paper - Bazzill Lakeshore, Ocean Breeze, Kraft, Marmalade Blast, Sunbeam, Carob Cream, Cream White; Papertrey Ink New Leaf; DCWV Robin 
Cricut Cartridges - Life's a Beach, Create-a-Critter, Alphalicious
VersaMark pen & Ranger Sea Foam White embossing powder
Flower Soft (sand)
White & blue gel pens

Wouldn't you love to win a set of Peachy Keen Stamps for yourself!?!  Just leave a comment over on my blog to be entered to win!

I want to say thank you so so so much to Peachy Keen Stamps for letting me a guest designer!  It was an awesome experience and I really appreciate it!

I hope you've enjoyed my projects!  Have a great weekend everyone!
