Have an Awesome Birthday

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion
Hello Everyone and Happy Wednesday!
 I hope your having a great week:) 
It is hard to believe it is August already, ha? We have a busy month filled with 6 weddings and also the baptism for my 2 little Granddaughters coming up......the month will fly by for sure! 

These babies are keeping me busy and truly enjoying all the snuggle time I am getting in. I am a bit behind on commenting, blogging and crafting but hoping things will settle down soon and I will be back at it.

I did get in my craft room today while little Lacy was sleeping to create a cute birthday card using a fun stamp set from Pretty Cute Stamps.  There are some fun challenge going on and I wanted to try and join in a few of them :) Arya was in need of a card for a birthday pool party she is invited to this weekend~so it's perfect!
We also have the PDE Linky Party~"Anything Goes" challenge going on. Would love for you to come link up HERE.
 We'd love to see your creations!!
 I picked up this Porthole Card and sweet dolphin using the Sea Life cutting file from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbon. The papers are all scraps with the exception of the background pattern paper~that is from Paper Pizazz~Pool Water.
I thought it would be fun to turn this into a shaker card so I added some yummy Mermaid Lagoon sequins that I picked up from Craftin Desert Diva's. Wow, Tara has so many fun colors at her store~super fun if you like doing shakers, check it out HERE.
I finished with a cute sentiment from Pretty Cute Stamps called Otterly Amazing which is stamped onto a tag using Jaded Blossoms Mini Tags Die 2  The pretty bow is created with 3 Girl JAM ice blue crinkle ribbon.
I am entering this in the following challenges: 
1.) Pretty Cute Stamps Birthday Challenge
2.) Little Scrap Pieces Show it Off Saturday
3.) DL.ART August Linky Party 
4.) 3 Girl JAM August Challenge~Anything Goes
6.) Craftin Desert Diva's Linky Party~Keeping Cool
