Summer Fun @ The Pink Elephant

Hi Everyone :) For this week the challenge at TPE is entitled..............
Summer Fun

I guess that title could mean lots of different things to you, but to me it means just one thing......................children playing! so that it what i have for you on my DT samples today :) It seems to me that many children spend so much of their time stuck in front of the telly or the computer................not 'proper' playing outside in the fresh air!!

My 3 used to love going to the woods and finding a log pile to climb or a fallen tree that they could play on.......once we were lucky enough to find a rope on a tree with a huge knot to sit on..... they swung for hours!.........such great fun and didn't cost a penny!!

These fabulous images are drawings by the very talented Sam over at Lily-Boo's Boutique
i've been looking for ages and i finally took the plunge and ordered several!! so easy to do and instant gratification...............all from your armchair :) favourite sort of shopping!!

Images.... Digi downloads from Lily-Boo's
Colour.... Promarkers
Papers.... Basic Grey 'Lemonade'
other supplies....Martha Stewart punch, Dovecraft punches
Cuttlebug, Nesties, Stamps Away, Hero Arts, Daisy & Dandelion

I am sure you will have fun playing along with the challenge this week and i bet i will see some real 'eye candy' on my visits........... Thanks for your time today.......hope to see you really soon with a challenge or two......... ;-D
