Relaxing Summer

Well I reckon this little chap has the right idea of how to relax and keep cool on these warm summer days. The decoupage image is printed from the Gruffies & Happy Hoppers cd by Joanna Sheen and the papers are magazine freebies (from ages ago). I kept it pretty simple just adding lace, ribbon and gems from my stash.



I shall enter this in the following challenges

House Mouse & Friends Monday challenge 'colour recipe or anything goes' (I went for anything goes)
Gruffies & Guests challenge 'summer fun or anything goes'
Allsorts challenge 'inspired by summer'
Papertake Weekly challenge 'spots & stripes'
The Ribbon Girls challenge 'everything goes with an image'
Fussy and Fancy Friday challenge 'lazy summer days'

Thanks for popping by today and all your greatly appreciated comments.
