Summer Time Challenge!

It is time for another challenge!!
The theme for this one is 

I hope all of you are having a fun, relaxing and amazing summer!
Summer time is a time for lots of things...
family reunions
and spending time outside!!

With all these things that happen all summer long I was trying to think of the one thing that is best about summer... and what I came up with isn't the best thing about summer, but it is one of my favorites.

At night after the kids are in bed, I take my kindle or a good book and make a drink and sit on the deck and enjoy the breeze and smells of summer. 
So my project was a "margaritaville" sign.

I used a wooden craft I found at the dollar store as the back, then I used an fun and bright animal print for the back ground. I used vellum for the glass and glitter paper for the drink. I used diamond dust on the rim of the glass to give it the salt look. I used my crop-a-dile punched 2 holes thru it and cut the letters out in vinyl. I used ink around the edges to make it look all black.
I hope you enjoyed my little sign and I hope the rest of your summer is great!
