Today is the day! It's time once again for the Pinkalicious Blog Hop! Our theme for this month is "All About Summer". How fun is that?!
I planned on doing a beach themed layout, but when I went to Michael's last week, something else caught my eye in the unfinished wood section - a bird house in the shape of a castle. My first thought was..."I wonder if I could turn this into a sandcastle?? Since it was only $5 and they only had one left, I decided to give it a try.
Here is how it turned out:
The little flags I made myself. I used toothpicks for the pole part. All sentiments are My Pink Stamper stamps which can be purchased here.
One thing to mention: I made this purely as a decoration for my craft room. If you do plan on using it outside, you may want to modpodge your diecuts before adding them to your castle. This will *hopefully* make them more water proof.
And in case you would like to make this for a friend, you may like a cute card to go with it.
