Scrap The Girls September challenge is up!

Hi there everyone!  Hope you are all well and enjoying a lovely weekend. :)  All well here, except for a sick DD.  She's getting better slowly, so that good.  Just wanted to share my CT example for the Scrap The Girls September Challenge.  This month you have to scrap ACTION or SPORT photos.  Pretty easy, hey?  Go and check out the rest of the CT's gorgeous examples.
I've scrapped a photo that I took of my DD while we were on holidays in April this year.  Her and DH went rowing in the ocean every afternoon. She loves all things action/sport so this was not a difficult task at all.  I've used the Simple Stories 'Summer Fresh' collection.  I love this range. :)
A little close up of my clouds and hot air balloon. I love all the word stickers that come with this range.
 The chevron strip is part of the design on one of the pattern papers.
The title was also part of one of the pattern papers.  I cut it out and inked around the edges.
I hope to see your entry in the gallery soon.  There are some awesome prizes up for grabs, but you have to be in it to win it! 
Wishing you all a happy day for Fathers Day tomorrow! Hope you get to spend some time with your dad.  Not something I've had the opportunity to do too often during my life. :(
Thank you for visiting my blog and for your lovely comments.  I appreciate each and every one of them.
Until next time.

Summer Fresh has to be my best range too. You done a great job with it on your layout.
Another excellent challenge at Scrap the girls, I'll have to make some time for it this month. Hopefully time might just slow down this month ☺.
