Dog Days of Summer


Good afternoon lovely crafters.  It seems like it has been a lot more than a week since I last posted.  The grandkids came and we had a great time.  Of course hubby and I were the ones worn out.  But, I would do it all over again.  It is just great to spend some time with them.

I have some more news here too.  I was selected as a Design Team member for the Paper Crafting Journey Challenge blog.  I am so excited.  This is a whole new area for me.  Each new DT will be featured in the next few weeks.  So, be on the look out.  The new challenge at Paper Crafting Journey is Anything Goes  and it is being extended for six weeks.  So go and join in.

Today, I have a sweet little digi from Digi Doodles Shop.  This is Daisy Girl.  She looks like she is thinking about a whole bunch of things.  Maybe that school will be starting soon.  I also used a sketch from the Papertake Weekly Challenge.
