The folks of the Northern Hemisphere must have been eagerly awaiting summer because there are lots of challenges with summer themes.  I started with a Mo Manning image for Mo's Digital Challenge - Summer Time.

Supplies:  White and blue card, Mo Manning image, EP design paper, Simple Stories chipboard stickers, Lyra pencils and twine

I like depicting Summer, it is my favourite season and what better way to represent Summer than with a beach scene?  Although I think the "model" is being a little unwise because she looks like she is getting sunburnt. 
I will also join in  for some fun in the sun at the following challenges -
Alota Rubber Stamps - Summer Feeling
Sassy Studio Designs - Hit the Beach 
One Crazy Stamper - Summer Fun
Pink Gem - Summertime
Crazy 4 Challenges. - Summer Inspiration
The Squirrel and the Fox - Summer or Winter
Make it Monday - Anything Goes

Thank you for dropping by.
