Summer


I'm sharing with you today a page that was done specifically for, and was published in Scrapbooking Memories Magazine ( Vol 15 No 5 )
The photo is of my niece and 3 of her children having fun in the shallows at the beach. This is pretty much a standard activity for them, and, for most kids, in Australia during our long, hot, school holidays.
I've used all my favourite techniques........stamping, resist stamping, masking, watercolour and distress inks.

Thanks for visiting me today, it's Friday ( already ) and so I wish everyone a great weekend, and of course, if you're an Ausie, then have a wonderful Australia Day long weekend.

  10. we had a special dinner and dessert and Australian music on Australia day (my husband always celebrates it) and then we watched the movie "The Dish" which we all loved immensely

    your beach page - I could lose myself in it and bask in it's warmth - just lovely - and especially fun to think about how it IS summer somewhere every day of the year!
