Dog Days of Summer

Over at The Order of the Opus Gluei the Poobahs of Luscious Glued-ness have asked us to create something based on our interpretation of the dog days of summer.  Now in case you noticed the 1998 date on this LO, let me tell you that my ex-husband (who has mellowed considerably over the years) kindly let me scan some of his photos of the "old days".   So that's what I've been working on.  This particular one was taken on a camping trip that I and my best friend, along with our two girls (BFF) took to the "Seashore" sans the EX.  But it's in my pile of "old" photos.  Since summer has decided to pass us by in the region where I live, I think this memory will have to suffice.  And a good memory it is.

It's Tuesday, so I'm partying with these kind folks:

Be forewarned, there are a GAZILLION crafters who join these parties!!


  1. Hi! I'm finally taking time to visit a few sorority sisters. Your blog is great, so colorful! If summer is passing you by, I'd be happy to send you a bit of ours. Heat index today in the Midwest...115, ugh!


  2. Ditto what Sue said, you can have our summer, I'll take yours. Great layout! Love the pic, very cute!

  3. Gorgeous layout. Very cool that you are doing older photos. I haven't scrapped in FAR too long. Must get back at it. It's just that there are so many other things. You are more than welcome to come to HOT Virginia Beach and thaw out for a bit. LOL Yoy are such a great GROUPEI, we love oogling your creations. Thanks for sticking with us.

  4. I love the beach's so cute..perfect for those sweet summer memories!

  5. I love the beach's so cute..perfect for those sweet summer memories!

  6. Love the photograph and what you've added alongside to tickle the memories... Summer always brings to mind sand and shells and sunshine and they're all here.

    I'm sure summer's coming back sometime soon but its f-r-e-e-z-i-n-g here today and the wind is lifting trees right out of the ground.

  7. This is a marvelous layout - it captures another fleeting moment of childhood beautifully!

    Love your take on our challenge and thank you for participating!


  8. I love beach themes and this layout is fab. The red in the "y" and the embellishment at the bottom really pull it all together and make it POP!


Thank you for your visit. I really appreciate it!
