The Sweetness of Summer

Ahh, the sweetness of summer . . . sunshine, warm days and for me my garden!   There is nothing more rewarding then the beauty of a flower or should I say flowers?

I used the August kit from the Paper Poppy Kit Co. filled with bright and colorful papers from Cosmo Cricket Delovely and Jillibean Soup.  I used their August sketch and their August challenge which is to scrap what you love about summer.
Unfortunately yesterday and today there is very little sunshine, so I apologize that my pictures are not as bright as they should be.

Everything on this layout is from the kit with the exception of the bling and the cute little fence.  I found the fence at Michaels.  All I did was add a little paint.
Thanks for stopping by!
. . . Debbie
