My card and little desk photo were inspired by these amazing people and Gina's new Botanicals set. Yes, that is me as a little girl with my Aunt. The reason for the photo is that these were the largest Queen Ann's Lace that my Uncle had ever seen. You might say Summer? Yes back then, my Mom made me wear that light weight jacket whenever I went with them to keep off the insects and brambles, Lol! Heck, my Uncle took my Aunt to a Florida swamp for their honeymoon! The card is a CAS design, made from Pure Luxury Kraft card stock. I stamped the background script and sentiment in Creamy Caramel from SU. My Queen Ann's Lace was embossed with white detail ep. I added adhesive paper lace from K&Co and cocoa pearls as my accents. The desk photo is just a take off of the card. Thanks for stopping by!

Favorite Summer Memories for GKD
This post may get a wee bit lengthy, so please bare with me. Over at Gina K. Designs Blog, Gina has challenged us to create one of our favorite summer memories, using Gina K. stamps.When I saw this challenge, so many things went through my head. There are many people in my life that I have cherished and lost. Two such people were my Aunt Cass and Uncle Gordon. They never had any children, so when I got to spend one on one time with them, during Summer break, they spoiled me rotten. Uncle Gordon was a wildlife photographer and one of those people that folks adored. They would take me on shoots and taught me many things about nature.
