Time for Challenge #11 at Dream Valley and this time the design team was asked to come up with a project for a "Summer Theme".  I had just won this sexy "Beach Baby Jayme" from Whimsy Digital Stamps and knew that this was the image I wanted to play with.  I colored her with Copics, and made her nice and slick with a coat of Judikins Diamond Glaze, because after all she is a frog!!!  The dp is from Fancy Pants Beach Babe collection, as is the sentiment ( and when you check out the Dream Valley Challenge blog you'll see that great minds think alike - another member of the dt used the same paper ).  Ribbon and embellishments are all from my stash of course - someday my stash may run out, but I think I'm safe for at least a few years yet - LOL!!!
