A Summers Breeze ~ I Double Dog Dare You

We have a new group to take crafting to a our limit which we are proudly calling I Double Dog Dare You. I am Double Dog Daring you for our first challenge which we are calling Summer Breeze. Ok, granted, I know the heat hats soared to new heights this summer in some areas but let's have some sweet thoughts of our "Happy Place". Now again, just as a reminder, the only limit to our wonderful creative group will be their creativity!

See the curtains hangin' in the window in the evenin' on a Friday night
A little light a-shinin' through the window lets me know everything is alright
Summer breeze makes me feel fine 
blowing through the jasmine in my mind
Summer breeze makes me feel fine 
blowing through the jasmine in my mind
See the paper layin' on the sidewalk a little music from the house next door
So I walked on up to the doorstep through the screen and across the floor
Sweet days of summer the jasmine's in bloom 
July is dressed up and playing her tune
And I come home from a hard day's work and you're waiting there not a care in the world
See the smile a-waitin' in the kitchen food cookin' and the plates for two
Feel the arms that reach out to hold me in the evening when the day is through
Summer Breeze Lyrics by Seals and Croft

If you have come to visit me today, I'm honored but I wouldn't want you to miss a single creative spot and would want you to start at the beginning which is Lynne. You should have arrived from my creative accomplice Lynne

Now, to showcase my creativity, I have for you today

I do not do double page layouts often, heck, I don't do layouts that often to be honest with you.  I am more of a card maker, however, these cute little bears are just to cute to not use for something. Right?   

When I asked a couple of friends what is the first think that comes to your mind when I say Summer... several of them said fresh mowed  grass.  So, I took their idea and I found these adorable critters out mowing and trimming the lawn.   

I love the smell of fresh cut grass, but it sure makes me sneeze. 

With all this being said, sadly, I must send you on your way to our next super crafty friend Shelly Lynn. Summer breeze makes me feel fine; blowing through the jasmine in my mind

Stay tuned for next month for I Triple Dog Dare YOU. If you want to particpate, let either Lynne Kirsch at or Kimberly Pate at where we are going to be challenging your creativity mojo where the only limit is yourself with a theme of "First Readers"
