Summer Holidays

WOW you treated us to such lovely projects last week with your Butterflies thank you.   Guess we know the summer is here, the school's have broken up for the holidays!     Time for family days out, picnics on the beach, exploring previously un-visited places and all the fun of the season.   So what could be more fitting than Hazel's choice of theme?

To be eligible for the Random draw and a chance to win £10 to spend at Craft-Room we look for the shop logo and a link to the shop in your side bar.

Could you ask someone to check for you to see if you have word verification, a few entries last week have it turned on but you may not realise and like many challenges we ask you to turn it off to help us visit and comment on all your lovely projects.

For the full rules please check the Pesky Rules page.




Here is Hazel who selected this fortnight's theme SUMMER HOLIDAYS.


Hi everybody. Summer Holidays seemed to be an appropriate choice for this time of the year with schools breaking up for the summer and people jetting of here there and everywhere. How do you like to spend your holidays? Do you follow the sun, go camping, have adventure holidays or do you stay at home spending time in the garden or going for day trips. You can interpret the theme many ways. For my example I had a trip down memory lane, perhaps there are holidays that you'd like to remember. I'm looking forward to seeing all your work and if you are about to go away on holiday I hope you have a lovely time and look forward to seeing you when you get back.

Here is Debi who selected this fortnight's theme,
  
I'm so excited to be picking the theme for our 4th Challenge, I have chosen Butterflies after coming across this beautiful quote by Primo Levi, who was a writer, chemist and a survivor of Auschwitz.

"The Butterfly's attractiveness dervives not only from colours and symmetry: deeper motives contribute to it. We would not think them so beautiful if they did not fly, or if they flew straight and briskly like bees, or if they stung, or above all if they did not enact the perturbing mystery of metamorphosis: the latter assumes in our eyes the value of a badly decoded message, a symbol, a sign."

You might like to check this out and if you are interested send a butterfly of your own.









Inspiring aren't they?    Butterflies are always lovely to work with, we are really looking forward to seeing what you all share with us.
