For me, summer is all about outdoor fun! One of our family fun stops during the warm months is to visit the beach. So I was browsing the aisles of our local bargain shop and came across a bag of fun beach related toys. PERFECT!! Since toys seem to migrate while on the beach, I thought I would personalize my son's beach stuff...
First I stamped all kinds of boy related icons all down the side of his fun plastic wheel barrow. I used StazOn black ink and allowed it a few minutes to dry between stamping the next image.
Stamp sets I used for the wheel barrow: "house", No Place Like Home; "ice cream cone, computer/TV, cell phone, Symbols; "Crazy Stuff", Bold Blocks; "seal", Seal It!; "man image, male gender symbol", She Says - He Says; "circles", Funky Circles; "robots, nuts, bolts, gears", Programmed Robots; "cloud, sun", Wishing You Sunshine; "airplane, car, words", Passport to Adventure; "alphabets", Rough Copy Alphabet.
I made sure to personalized it for him with his name right on the front...
... and also I on the inside. I coloured his name in using my Copic markers.
Included in the summer kit was a little pail with a red rake and a green shovel. I personalized his pail with the Funky Circles stamp set and I also added his initial "S" to the big circles using the Rough Copy Alphabet set. Since he's almost 5 now, I thought I would stamp on the tools what they were in actual words. For this, I used the Mini Alpha - Small Box set.
The whole entire set came in a handy back pack so I personalized it too!!! I used the newest mSB stamp set, the Royal Flush alphabet stamp set.
Everything comes apart easily and slides right into the backpack. Here's my little beach boy sporting his new beach gear...
I hope my project has inspired you today!!!
