It's Quirky Time For Summer Memories!

Hi Peoples, I'm not here at all this week, so for once my DT card for the Quirky Crafts Challenge isn't late! It's on timer, and set to go! So...if you're not reading this... it didn't! Oops! Anyway, it's definitely on the challenge blog! Maybe I should be away more often. This fortnight it's
my turn to set theme. We're sponsored by...  
Bugaboo and Digital Delights! 
so I've chosen, because I'm away sunning myself (hopefully) I'd like to see some of your... 
Quirky Summer Memories
I was brought up on a farm/s so most of the time I played in the hay building camps, scrumped for apples, made dams in the river or fished for minos, but quite often the mums would gather up us kids and take us down to the beach where we'd spend nearly every day of the Summer Holidays just messing about with sand and seaweed! 
Instead of using a little monkey in a boat, which had other memories... I chose to use these five Bugaboo digi's to make a beach scene.
I've 3D-ed three of them to make them pop. I've added orange eyelash wool and punched out crabs using a small Woodware punch. (The one on the monkey's ear is there to cover up a smudge) 
The papers were free from a Crafty Mag some time ago, (You can just see a surf board on the inside) The font I used is a freebie, called Brush Script MT. You probably already have it, if not just Google the name.
Well, that's it! You have two weeks to join in and show us a few of your summer memories! Pop over to Quirky Crafts! Thanks for stopping by!
