I love summer!

Summer time has always been a magic time for me.  I grew up in Texas where summer started early and ended late.  Fresh mowed grass, the smell of wheat when its harvested, clear blue skys, endless days at the lake, and long summer nights.  I grew up in a family of five kids so we had stay-cations before the they were cool.  We camped in the front yard, and my parents were never surprised in the morning when there would be twice as many kids there as we started out with.  One of the great things about growing up in a small town is that all your friends heard about the camp out before you'd even get the tent up.  I hope my girls grow up believing in the magic of summer.  I can't give them the small town summers that I grew up having but I can help them experience everything that summer has to offer.  Don't forget to experience a piece of the summer magic for yourself!

I went into my LSS yesterday looking for one thing (which they didn't have) but I found this cutie instead.  She was on my must have list after the previews on All That Scraps Blog and I was so excited to see that my LSS was carrying them.  I think I'll have to go back and pick up some of the others.  She is Summer from the CC  Designs Honey collection.  Isn't she just adorable!  All the paper is from the Poteeka Souffle from the Paper Studio.  I used my scalloped nestie, some scrap ribbon and some of my favorite color buttons.  The card sketch is from Friday Sketchers #105 and I thought it was fantastic for these papers. 

I hope that everyone has a wonderful Thursday!



  1. Oh, she's CUTE!!! I love the pretty colors you used and what an adorable stamp!

  2. I loved reading your thoughts on summer, they really hit home as I'm one of five kids, grew up in a small town and love the magic of summer too!
    Your card captures that summer vibe perfectly, so simply cute!
