I used SU! Crystal Effects on the water on my Paper Cupcakes Gigi on Tube image.



I love popping up my image with pop dots when I cut an image out.



Here is my Dog Days of Summer finished product. Now I want to go join Gigi in the pool since our temps here in PA were in the low 100s this past weekend.

Melanie, Welcome to the Paper Cupcakes Team! What a fun card. Your pp are lots of fun and bright and cheery, just like Gigi! Love the bling on her umbrella, exactly what she would like too! Fun card and wonderful job on the sketch as well! Also, if you can't figure out why that photobucket thing is in the middle of your page, you need a new "blog cover" it took me dayd to figure why that thing was there then I realized my pretty blog skin was gone! As soon as you replace it, it will go away (just in case you didn't know) :O) Hope you enjoyed your swim as well! FUN Card!
