TTIC 34 - Celebrate Summer.

The very gorgeous Jen has set this week's challenge at Twilight Tuesday .....

"Celebrate Summer"

One of the enigmatic things about Twilight is that every book aside from Breaking Dawn revolves around the school year. Twilight ends with Prom and New Moon picks back up as school starts again, likewise with Eclipse. I always wonder what Edward and Bella did with their summer vacations, especially that summer between Twilight and New Moon and as summer is creeping upon us rather rapidly with the summer solstice is just under two wees away on June 21st I thought it would be fun to celebrate summer this week!

As a teacher and a mom summer is a HUGE deal to me. It's a wonderful albeit short break from all things work related and is a wonderful rejuvenator to get me ready for the next school year. And lets not forget my kiddos, I get to spend all summer with my kids. It's the best of both worlds, I get to be a working mom and a stay at home mom and I love it! We spend our summer hanging out at the pool, fishing at the lake, visiting the zoo, and just cramming as many fun activities in as we can.

Now on to the challenges!
Creative Challenge:

Your creative challenge this week is to go all out and celebrate summer! You can create a Twilight themed summer piece or you can celebrate your own summer plans or a fantastic summer that has passed.

Those of you participating on the other side of the world from those of us in the US/Canada are just wrapping up your summer... your task is similar to above, celebrate something wonderful you did this summer or focus on Bella and Edward's possible summer adventures.
Comment Challenge:

Do you have a favorite summer adventure of your own? I want to hear about it! It could be from your childhood or currently. Do you have any exciting things planned for THIS summer? I'd love to hear about those too!!

Remember: Each comment you leave on a TTIC challenge is an entry into this month's Blog Candy Give Away!!!

Awwwwww come on Jen! It's 15 degrees here....( for all my American friends...That's bloody COLD! ) and raining outside, how am I supposed to celebrate when I am freezing my butt off!

Well let's look at what the other ladies on the design team have done......

Rebecca ~ Margie ~ Dani ~ Beth ~ Eve ~

Jen ~ Julie ~ Tonya

And us Guest Designers

Jacquie ~ Alison

Now let's see if I can motivate myself into a summery mood........

Ahhhh Bondi in Summer.....That's helping.......

Yummmm, Taylor with his shirt off....Oh it's raining! Maybe that's not what I was quite after.....

NOW we are starting to get somewhere!
This is inspirational!

Alright.....Time to be serious! Now, this is what summer is for us...Going to Victor Harbour with the boys and exploring Granite Island.... Eating ice-creams when we get back to the main land and sitting in a nice air-conditioned car on the ride home! Taking the boys swimming, eating watermelon, shorts! I miss wearing shorts, taking photo's, reading in my hammock......That is my summer!

So taking all that in mind... I searched through my papers until I found one's that made me feel summery and came up with this.....

I hope that this card reminds you a little bit of a Summer Day....
