Flourishes Timeless Tuesday!!!

Happy Tuesday everyone!!!

How was your weekend??? Ours was uneventful and very relaxing...love those kinda days...LOL!!!

How about playing along in our new Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge ~ FTTC82??? It is the end of the month and we are happy to introduce you to our challenge host!!!! It is Traci Major and she is  challenging us to a theme of *Summer Memories*!!! With summer quickly drawing to a close, Traci wants us to reflect on one of our summer activities and create a card capturing one of our favorite memories of Summer 2010! How fun it that??? Hope you will come and play with us :) !!!

Here is my take on it......





I immediately thought of our times at the beach!!! My girls and I just love to hang out and and enjoy every minute we have at the beach!!! If you are interested in some of our summer photos ~ click here.

Of course I had to use the beautiful Flourishes Beach Life Set. Unfortunately my coloring skills are not good enough to capture the beauty of the ocean/beach!!! So I decided to participate in this weeks TPE82 ~ Mostly White Challenge....after all these images speak for themselves :).  I matched the beach images up with several different Flourishes sentiments from the ~ Chairs for You,  Friendly Reminders and Sweet Violets Sets. Of course I HAD to add some Silver Pearls for a little more pizazz :) !!!

Now it's time to check out ~ Barbara, Betty, Cindy, Dee, Maki and Traci's  take on the challenge!!!

Thank you for stopping by today...I'll be back tomorrow with another fun project!!! Hugs ~S~

Liebe Silke,

sehr, sehr schöne Karten, sie wirkens so herrlich edel und elegant, und die zauberhaften Motive kommen auf diese Art besonders gut zur Geltung. Maritime Motive mag ich ssssooo gerne.
