The Challenge #9 - You're So Cool!!

Did you have a good weekend?    I did!  I had my parents over for Father's Day - the weather was great, and we had a wonderful dinner.   I even made a few frozen drinks - pina coladas and margaritas.  I'm going to have to remember that - happy hour before dinner!  No arguments and everyone got along beautifully LOL!!!  We ate barbecued ribs, corn on the cob, baked beans, corn bread, salad, and finished up with banana cream pie!

I 'm playing along at The Challenge.  A new two week sketch challenge begins today!  The Challenge was  created by Lesley Croghan and is hosted on her blog  Always Playing with Paper.  Lesley is the creator of lots of wonderful challenges including Fusion, Dynamic Duos, Seize the Birthday, Seize the Sketch, Card Concept, and Merry Monday.     Check out the sketch she has for us this time.  This one is just about perfect for any image or sentiment you'd like to highlight.   Summer always makes me think of cooking outdoors, cold drinks, ice cream, and popsicles.  Doesn't this just look so yummy?
If you need a little more inspiration just click on the names of the other DT members to hop to their blogs.   They'll be glad you stopped by!
