Summer Secret

Okay, it's been awhile since I posted anything and I can't believe how the time flies.  With a huge fence project and golf and work and looking after a house and yard the summer is flying by.

This new project is an idea from Norma at From My Craft Room.  She makes absolutely gorgeous items so check her out.

Lots of pictures for you so here goes.

This is Miami Edwin from the Magnolia Summer Memories 2012 collection and he is colored with Copics of course!
Shorts - B97, 95, 93, 91
Shirt and socks - YR24, 23, 21, 20
Shoes - C7, 5, 3, 1
Skin - E50, 21, 00, 000, 93 for the cheeks
Shell - E44, 43, 42
Sand (ground) - E55, 53, 51 and blender
Hair - E99, 97; Y21, 11

The flowers are from Wild Orchid, the die cut is Spellbinders and the phrase is stamped with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Weathered Wood.  The stamp is from Impression Obsession.

The dolphin jumping out of the water is also colored with Copics and they are:
B97, 95, 93, 91; C4, 2, 0

This is all of the same products as before including that the stamp is from Impression Obsession.

The seahorse on the top is colored with:
E43, 42, 41, 40; BG000, 0000 and blender; the die cut is Spellbinders and the pearls are from KaiserCraft.

One picture for you of the inside drawers.
