Good morning, all! As promised, I'm here today with a brand new image from Krista Smith of Saturated Canary called "To the Lake". I chose this digi as my prize for placing in the Top 3 in the SC challenge a couple of weeks ago. I love Krista's adorable children but I'm also glad that she is branching out a little and giving us some more mature images to work with.
I used this sparkling blue water paper for my background with the patterned paper, which is intended to resemble ceramic tiles like those that were popular for use in swimming pools before the invention of more modern materials.
I'd love to have a tan like this beauty's but as a fair-skinned redhead, I have never been able to attain that lovely shade of bronze. In fact, when I am going out in the sun for any length of time, I have to use a sunblock with an SPF of about 50!
I burn easily and try to protect my skin from any further damage that what was done during my youth, before I knew how costly being an "outdoorsy girl" could be. My mom had a melanoma lesion removed from her arm so I take very few chances these days.
So there you have it. I, personally, dislike summer. I don't function well in the heat and the high cost of air conditioning makes me like it even less. I hope to be back tomorrow with another new project but I have a couple of things I have to get done which require my immediate attention so I may be MIA for a couple of days. Have a wonderful day, a better Friday and a fun and crafty weekend! Until next time...
