LIFE IS ALWAYS BETTER ...

{DT Project Tammy's Scrapin Corner: Challenge #78}

This week our theme for Challenge #78 at Tammy's Scrapin Corner  is END OF SUMMER. I used this cute image called SHARING A SLICE from QKR STAMPEDE and you can find it here.

Another Centre Step Design. The images were coloured with Copics and the design paper is from Art from the Heart and Best Creations.  The Bling is from Blueberry Bear.  The sentiment is a freebie from Sharon {A Piece of Heart}.

Hope you will play along this week - so come on link your END OF SUMMER creations to Tammy's Scrapin Corner's Challenge No.78. Can't wait to see your creations.





Once again I would love to try my hand at the following challenges with this creation:
Signing off with a photo of a penguin I took at Boulders Beach, in Cape Town, a few years ago.



Thanks for your treasured visits here.  Without your motivation and inspiration, blogging will just not be the same.

  78. What a sweet joyous card. Love the quote paired with the image of the ants. You just know they are working as a team. I also learned something new today. I never knew there were penguins in South Africa. Okay, maybe in a zoo if you guys even have zoos, but living in the wild, where you can get that close them? Now that is just wild.

    Hugs,
    Lisa
