Fun in the Sun Blog Hop

Welcome to the Fun In The Sun Beach Blog Hop, brought to you by the fabulous design teams of Made Especially For You and Digi Haven

These two design teams have joined together to create some fun in the sun beach-themed projects! Inspired by the concept of the Digi Haven challenge blog, all of our creations we have for you today we're made using free digis! 

If you came from  Candice's blog, you're in the right place! 
If you just came across the hop and would like to start at the beginning, please visit Ashley's blog, Made Especially For You

Now on to my project

For this card I used a free digi from Dearie Dolls Digis. The digi I chose to use had the cute little boy standing in front of a pool, but because he was headed to the beach, I cut the pool out from behind him.
The die-cuts in the background are SVG's from my store, Scraptastical Kreations. I used plain white, tan and blue cardstock. 

We have some wonderful sponsors giving away prizes for those who comment on each stop of the hop! Let's see what they have to offer...
