Fresh Brew for all!

Fresh Brewed Designs is a challenge blog and shop owned by Heather Dennis from Heather's Coffee Shop.
I entered a challenge on her blog after purchasing the most adorable set of beach stuff stamps and some papers, ribbon and bling to play with.  Her DT chose my project as a winner and I get to be a member of the DT for the next 3 months.
This is a pretty busy DT group.  FBD sponsers many challenges besides there own challenge site.  They are also busy on 'The Latte Lounge' and at 'Simply Scrapping Crafts'.  Anyway, watch my blog for FBD images!  Here are the 2 that I entered to win the DT spot.  You could only use the materials sent in the kit, cardstock and could add a sentiment of your own.
Aren't those little ice cream cones adorable!  Everything except the sentiment (from OCL) and the card stock are from the Fresh Brewed Designs kit.

The gift box (thanks to Cammie at OCL)  is about 4.5 x 3 x 1.5 inches.  There is sand from my local beach in the window.  The flower is made from some of the paper from the kit.  The sandcastle and beachbag are 2 FBD stamps colored with copic markers.  The button and bow are from the kit.  We were allowed to use our own cardstock, so I cut out the palm tree from cardstock on my cricut.  
The 2 together made for a pretty cool set!  Obviously since I won the contest!  LOL

This set may be entered into the following challenges:

A Spoonful of Sugar:  Anything goes

Gale, this is Beautiful (as you already know I think so:) I LOVE the bag and all the elements from your kit that you added to it. The stamps, button, and the fun flower made from the DP. So inspirational and beautiful. I LOVE the card!!! I can't imagine all the time it took to cut out all of those little ice cream cones.

We are thrilled to have you on the DT and look forward to working with you :)

Thank you for playing along at the Freshly Brewed Challenges month long prize challenge
