We're All Going On A Summer Holiday!

Hi Guys, thanks for joining me again. I'm a bit late with my post this weekend, it's been a hectic weekend and it totally slipped my mind, so apologies!  I had a friend visiting from Scotland and I had to take her to the station to get her train home yesterday and then I went with one of my sister's to pick up a little kitten.  She's just a little ball of fluff and I spent the rest of yesterday making sure she had everything she needed for her so this completely slipped my mind.

It's time for another challenge over at Open Minded Crafting Fun  - for Challenge 15 the theme is Vacation Related. 
As always there are some fantastic sponsors for the challenge.  If you click the images it will take you to their sites, grab a cup of coffee and go have a browse!

The image I have used is from Beansie Doodles and she is called Volleyball Rebekah.  I can just see her on the beach playing volleyball in the sun.
