Summer Breeze

We have a new group to take crafting to a our limit which we are proudly calling I Double Dog Dare You. I am Double Dog Daring you for our first challenge which we are calling Summer Breeze. Ok, granted, I know the heat hats soared to new heights this summer in some areas but let's have some sweet thoughts of our "Happy Place". Now again, just as a reminder, the only limit to our wonderful creative group will be their creativity!

See the curtains hangin' in the window in the evenin' on a Friday night
A little light a-shinin' through the window lets me know everything is alright
Summer breeze makes me feel fine 
blowing through the jasmine in my mind
Summer breeze makes me feel fine 
blowing through the jasmine in my mind
See the paper layin' on the sidewalk a little music from the house next door
So I walked on up to the doorstep through the screen and across the floor
Sweet days of summer the jasmine's in bloom 
July is dressed up and playing her tune
And I come home from a hard day's work and you're waiting there not a care in the world
See the smile a-waitin' in the kitchen food cookin' and the plates for two
Feel the arms that reach out to hold me in the evening when the day is through
(Summer Breeze Lyrics by Seals and Croft)

We have a super creative group of ladies that are participating this month as this will be a monthly challenge where the players may change but the creativity is phenomenal:

If you have come to visit me today, I'm honored but I wouldn't want you to miss a single creative spot and would want you to start at the beginning which is Lynne at Her Craftiness. You should have arrived from my creative accomplice Shelly Lynn of KC Croppers.

Now, to showcase my creativity, I have for you today a 9" x 9" layout.  I've been trying to do a little more scrapbooking and I just love this size!

When I think of a summer breeze, I think of being at the fair on a hot summer day.  The only way to get cool is to hop on one of the rides like the ferris wheel to feel the breeze in your hair.  Thus, my layout below:

I used our Footloose paper for my layout.  The photo mat is 4" x 5" with a 4 1/4" x 5 1/4" mat cut out of Lagoon cardstock.  The ferris wheel was cut using our exclusive ARTISTE Cricut cartridge which is available for purchase on August 1st.  So I'm giving you a bit of a "sneak peak".  The ferris wheel is on page 50, B10, Accent 2 < p > and shift, Accent 2 < P > both cut at 3 1/2".  The sentiment "I love summer" is from a cartridge called "Simply Charmed."  The image can be found on page 46, B9, shift word < Wtrmln2 > cut at 2".

I hope you enjoyed my project!  Can't wait to read your comments.
  With all this being said, sadly, I must send you on your way to our next super crafty friend Lisa at Handmade with Love. Summer breeze makes me feel fine; blowing through the jasmine in my mind.

Stay tuned for next month for I Double Dog Dare YOU. If you want to participate, contact Lynne Kirsch by clicking here or Kimberly Pate by clicking here and join us in challenging your creativity mojo where the only limit is yourself with a theme of "First Readers".
