Tag Tuesday Challenge #58 -- Summer


Summer is upon us!   The heat is here -- and so are the summer storms.   But I was down at our lake shore (Lake Michigan) last week and remembered one of the really good things about summer, being  on the beach!  
So our challenge this week is to create a summer tag.  Maybe something that shows what you really enjoy doing in the summer or something that really speaks of summer to you.
And since it's the lazy days of summer and next weekend is the 4th of July weekend this will be a two-week challenge.  Our next challenge will be on July 13th.  So take your time and post when you'd like anytime these next two weeks.
Oh, and don't forget to go and see what everyone else has created!
My tag and this week's inspiration started with the circle frame I received from a friend. I stamped an "S" in the center and that became this week's theme.  I used background stamps from Tim Holtz (Stampers Anonymous) and the flourish is by Judikins.  I then created the suummer twinchie with background text by Hero Arts and a long-forgotten mini stamp by PSX.  The letters for "summer" were a rub-on I then cut up and attached to my tag.

So I decided to get out my pastels! I used to paint with them a lot. This was a fun way to get back in to this medium!.
I love umbrellas too!
