July and August ATC

I know they're a little late, but have only managed the odd bit of crafting with one thing and another at the moment...

This is the July ATC which theme was 'Favourite Holiday Destinations' and was set by Bev and I had to send to Bev, lol...
I chose the sea turtle with the hibiscus flower inside and the lovely clear blue water (which was paradise, lol), as it reminded me of 2 holidays that I loved and would love to go back to both places.


We visit Hawaii back in 2003 while doing a 3 week holiday to Orlando, San Francisco and finishing off with Hawaii (got some lovely photos of Steven in the surf) and we visited The Grand Cayman Island while on a Caribbean cruise back in 2006 and again got a lovely photo of Steven, this time with pirate, lol...

The ATC below was for August and was a 'Butterfly' theme and was set by Karen and I was to send to Susiej...



I used some bright velum for the background and colourful butterfly peel off's, the colours reminded me of a bright summer's day...
