Good Old Summertime

A new month means a new Customer Challenge at the Gecko Galz and the theme for the month of June -

So why not play along - join the challenge with the chance to win $25 at the Gecko Galz shop!

The past month or so, here in the UK, has been a mix of both beach weather and April showers! I'm still sporting a tan from the Easter Holidays, not intentional - did plenty of walking during my week off, If go outside the garden I either sit in the shade or wear a sun hat. I'm as pale as pale can be and I hate the heat. Having said that the past few weeks, I have enjoyed the sun as its meant I could get in the garden and greenhouse, seeding and planting flowers and some veg. All looking green at the moment!

My first sample is for the Good Old Summertime challenge is a Digital Page, using an image from Beauties from the Bay and a vintage postcard image, the sentiment is by Rosie H. The colours just go together, and I love the styles of the swimming costumes, not like todays where every bit of flesh has to be exposed if it can be!

my second sample is an A5 card, using an image from Summertime Fun and scraps of patterned paper, the sentiment is from a sheet I've had for years, kept in the hope of one day using it! Roller skating never appealed to me, it would have been like bambi on ice if I had given it a go. 

my third sample is a 6x6 card using an image again, from Summertime Fun, a sentiment I made in CAP2 and some yellow die cut card, I originally was going to use the larger piece as a frame and pop the photo inside, on the white card blank, but then decided to make a smaller piece to use as the frame,  then I decided to use both together and twist one. Love this cheeky chappie.  
Another DT member has also used this image and sentiment, can't wait to see her make!!

I hope you'll join in 'Good Old Summertime' Challenge, where the Winner gets a $25 shopping spree to spend at the Gecko Galz shop. (The only rule is that you must use at least one Gecko Galz product... this can be one of the freebies, or, of course, you can buy at the Etsy shop).
