HA Weekley Challenge 'Summer'

Hiya Peeps!

I'm sorry i've been so long since my last post. I've had a lot going on and this week I have got a horrible cold :( so I haven't really felt like doing much. Today though I found some inspiration to create a card for this weeks HA challenge - 'Summer'.

It took me a while to think of what I like about Summer and I thought of all the obvious images I could use such as flowers, trees, butterflies etc. But I wanted to do something different! Then I was thinking about my mum and the holidays we went on as a family. From the age of 8 or 9 we went to a holiday chalet park in Wales and enjoyed many family holidays year after year. Sometimes along with my brother and mum would come some of my my mums friends and we had so many good times.

One year we went on a outing to a wildlife park and my brother and I enjoyed it so much that we went nearly every year we went to Wales. So I decided to create a card based on this memory. I am pleased how it turned out :)
