I already had the photo and was intending to scrap it to remind me of a really nice summer day I had to myself a few weeks ago.

For this first page I decided to use only items which have come from my Design Team 'Quirky Kits'. The majority of it came from the latest Juicy Fruit Quirky Kit [which is still available from Crafty Templates ] with the addition of a journalling card, the Kim Smith 'Pow Paper' and a label left over from past kits.The bright Rose Moka ‘Pique-Nique’ papers are ideal for summer scrapping.

One which will just have to remain un-scrapped!
