Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog- Summer's Last Hurrah!!

 It's time for another Serendipity Month long challenge-- wow, can you believe it's September already!!

This month the theme is Summer's Last Hurrah!! Think... summer- anything related to summer-easy peasy!

In my house summer is our favorite season- we spend a lot of our free time out on the lake boating and playing on the jet ski. The other favorite summer past-time is to go to the beach (well, we do love flowers and have a small garden, do a little canning in btwn the trips to the lake). We are definitely "water" people!!

Mary always gives the DT an extra challenge and this week it is paper piecing. How's that for a snazzy boat!? Now, our boat is a bit plain compared to this one and it does have a motor but, love this image and sentiment from Serendipity Stamps. Ahh.. there is nothing more relaxing than the water, no matter whether you're sitting staring, paddling a kayak, rowing a boat....

The boat is from the Row Boat Cling Set and the sentiment is Leave Home. The Row Boat Cling set has a couple of fabulous sentiments with it or you can purchase the boat separately.

AND... we are welcoming the lovely Bridget Finlay as our Guest Designer for Sept -Thrilled to have you joining us!! 

Hoping you'll play... there are prizes :)

That boat? YES Very Snazzy - you created a really fun bright scene here Vickie! And I think you showed me that your a billion times better at this than me :)

Your dp combo for this boating scene is fabulous, Vickie, especially love the polka dots! I really like the torn cardstock and the button and twine too!

Marybeth said...

I love your idea of adding polka dots to this boat! Way to make it fun! You live on a lake??? Well it all sounds fun, I think Karen lives on a lake as well.
