Molly Blooms challenge - shades of sunshine

The Paperlane - where I did the Molly Blooms workshop- has begun a new challenge - this is the second one - I couldn't join in before as I didn't have any stamps! No excuse now so I rummaged around to see what papers I could find. In amongst the gorgeous stash Angela gave me I found these fab papers by Michelle Coleman for Fancy Pants called summer soiree - Perfect so then my project began to grow from a card into a mini book. Here is the front cover
and a peep inside whilst the book is all concertina-d up. Look at the fab crab charm :0)
so here is what you see immediately its opened - the front and back pages. I thought that little journalling bit was perfect for a message.
Once opened out this is the first scene. The papers set the scene really but doesn't Molly look at home paddling in the sea. I also loved the saying - it summed up perfectly my week off work!
Into the middle and George is ready to fly his kite. I borrowed this one from Mum - so far George is absent in my own collection. Then on the next page summery Molly sitting by the palm tree!
Last pages - again the Molly and Donkey I borrowed from Mum and I thought she looked great sitting up there! I have added flags and buttons from the freebie set from Simply homemade earlier in the year which made all the difference. Some glossy accents and stickles and its complete.
Here is the book all in one piece - difficult to photograph but I hope you get the picture.
Do stop by the Paperlane challenge - some gorgeous projects from the team and a fab prize too!

It also fits the stampin for the weekend challenge which is Holidays
And Rainbow ladys - song choice which is Summer Holiday!
