Last year, the people in the weather dept said we were in for a scorcher of a summer. A real 'Barbecue Summer' they said. Get the patio furniture dusted, stock up on gas for the barbecue and don't forget to wear at least factor 15 at all times. What a cruel joke. On the May Bank holiday weekend we had friends over and we sat in the swing chair in the garden sipping chilled wine. Dinner sitting on the patio and then staying out there in the early evening watching the sun go down. 'Imagine' we said, 'a whole summer of this, won't it be lovely?' Well it's a good job we did have that lovely day because it was possibly the last nice weekend of the year!
So that is the photo I have used for prompt 2 of the Shimelle SFAN class.
I have used up some borders that I cut from scraps of paper at a crop I went to last year. The lady in charge of the crop had brought a large selection of Martha Stewart edge punches and I had fun experimenting with them all but ended up with lots of strips of random papers. So this prompt was perfect for using them up. I also used some smaller scraps of paper to make the little flowers. That was a technique I learnt at last week's crop and I think it is quite effective.
