Summer time!

Hello all!
Another fortnight has flown by and it's the turn of the PINK DT over at Eclectic Ellapu to host the challenge and this time the theme is Summer Sunshine.  Hopefully you are actually getting some sunshine where you are - it's a bit of a mixed bag here in New Jersey with some lovely hot days and plenty of thunderstorms thrown in!

                    I've been dipping my toe back in the scrapbooking waters lately as I've got so many hundreds of photos I want to scrap with that I've just got to get a move on!  Anyway, this one is a photo of one of my nieces from a couple of years ago when she was 3 years old.  We went for a Teddy Bears' picnic; the first time she had been on a picnic and she was very excited about it all.  We did take along a couple of teddy bears as obviously you have to when it's a Teddy Bears' picnic.  This is her showing off her melon smile :)

         I used several different patterned papers, a few chipboard sentiments and some punched out butterflies.  I always add the journalling after I photograph the page as it's personal to me.

          I would like to enter this into the challenges at Creative CornerCreatalicious , Crafty Calendar , Craft Lovin' , Bearly Mine and Paula Holifield crafts.

Thanks so much for popping in :)

Lovely scrapbook page, I dabble with scrapbooks so far i have four holiday ones done, a wedding one done and I did a 30th anniversary scrapbook for my parents - 30 pages of their live. I love the results you get and it is rewarding to see your hard work come together, and such a cool way to show of them photos.

I've been getting the scrapping bug myself lately. There are so many cool techniques and products out there. You did a fantastic job with your page. That melon smile needed scrapping. LOL Hugs!
