Summer Inspiration - Totally Tilda DT call

Hi blogging friends,
I'm posting for the third day in a row - it's a world record for me! 
You may not realise (I can hardly believe it myself) but it's been a whole year since the wonderful ladies over at Totally Tilda asked me to be on their DT - it's such an awesome team to be a part of, I've loved every second and don't want it to end! Sooooo I thought there's nothing else for it....I'll have to reapply and see if they can put up with me for a bit longer lol! When I read that the theme for the 
Totally Tilda DT call
Your Interpretation of Summer
 I instantly thought of doing a word album (for the first time ever!) so that Tilda could show you what Summer means to me.....

In the summer school holidays I love taking the kids to the local parkland and flying the kite so Tilda with kite had to be on there. I made her kite by cutting a diamond shape piece of blue paper and added SU linen thread for the string and cut up cocktail sticks for the frame. She is standing in long summer grass using doohickey grass edger die.
We try and take the kids every summer at least once to pick our own strawberries as there's nothing better than choosing your own and eating a couple along the way :) Strawberry yummy Tilda shows how this is done perfectly lol!

and lastly I made a flip flop tag to go with my 'fun in the sun' word album which has Burger Tilda on it, you can't beat a good BBQ on a lovely summer evening.

'Sun' letters computer generated
miscellaneous papers, ribbon scraps, gems and book rings from stash
WOC flowers
DooHickeys - Fence, cloud, scalloped stitched lace border
SU flower punch and linen thread

Thanks for visiting my blog today and good luck to everyone taking part in the Totally Tilda DT call
