We're Celebrating Summer at S2G!

This week's Twisted Thursday Theme is "Water, Wet, and Waves"! I chose "The Lighthouse" for this week's challenge.
I made a gift box and card. I think this set would make a perfect Hostess gift if you are lucky enough to be invited to friend's beach house for the weekend! (I wish I had a friend who owned a beach house!)

The digi paper is from S2G. I used "Waves" and "Stripes". I think they go so well together!
The template for the box is "From the Desk Of" and is available at Papertrey Ink. It's roomy enough to hold full size bottles of Body Lotion, Shower Gel, and Spray Body Mist from Bath and Body. I fit all three in the box, but did not include them in the photo because the ones I had weren't the right color. MUST be color coordinated! LOL
"The Lighthouse" digi also comes with the sentiment,"by the the sea...." I had that song in my head the entire time I was working on this project! I first colored the sand with a Copic marker and then added Silver and Icicle Stickles. The swirls were cut with my Cricut from "Accent Essentials".
I painted the seashells with "Icicle" Stickles and hot glued them to the swirls. This digi and many more Summer Digis are available in the S2G Shop. I hope you'll enter this week's challenge:"Water,Wet, and Waves"! Link your card or project HERE. You could win your choice of digis and a Winner's Badge for your blog.
