Well it's not quite goodbye summer just yet as we're still getting some really nice warm and sunny days in the UK, but this is the theme at Mo Manning DP2 challenge.
At first I wasn't sure what I was going to do with this theme and I knew it definitely wasn't going to be anything to do with the rain (ugh) so when I saw this super Mo Manning scarecrow I decided I was going to do something just for fun. I made up a little poem - an amateur effort I know, but I'm no poet laureate - and printed it on the same sheet as the scarecrow. I used blue chalks to colour the sky and then I printed another 4 scarecrows which I coloured with Promarkers and cut out to decoupage him. I added some flowers from my stash and penned in some 'sunflower stalks' and then finished it off with a Die-namics fence die and a Memory Box spring border die. I then stuck this to a cheap wooden plaque and this is my 'goodbye' to summer. I'm pleased with how it turned out and even my hubby likes the scarecrow.
