Summertime...A Late Post

Happy Tuesday!

Three weeks ago my friend Diana and I spent a wonderful afternoon and evening together that included shopping, ice cream, and dinner. Yes, the ice cream came before the dinner!

Diana made this beautiful bag for me that was filled with heavenly milk and white chocolates:

I made Diana this post-it note holder (designed by Carla for the last I4U) and nugget purses:

I had meant to post my 'Summer' banner on the first day of Summer, but that somehow slipped by. Anyway, when I received the bird chipboard album (thanks Ann!), I knew right away that I wanted to decorate it for a banner. As I used DSP to cover the birds, I wanted to keep the embellishing simple. I used Prima flowers (so pretty edged with gold) for the 'eyes.'

Here's a picture of Harry catching some rays:

And, deciding to chill in the shade:

Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Lisa, your banner is beautiful! I love the post it note holder and the nugget purses are so adorable! I'm going to try to figure out your post it holder, I've never seen anything like this before! I would love to make one with Popcorn the bear for my desk.

hallo, Lisa
dein Sommerbanner mit den Vögeln ist eine grandiose Idee und sieht ganz fantastisch aus!!
Die Vögel habe ich auch noch und werde so einen Banner mit Sicherheit nacharbeiten. Danke für die tolle Inspiration!

Freue mich auf die kommende Woche!

Liebe Grüße Regina

That Harry is such a hoot! I LOVE what you did with the birds...too cute! Of course, your projects are always the best! Those little purses are precious!

What a blessing to have such a special friend! I love both of your projects. And that bird banner is so creative!! Your pup is just too cute. I have a little black chihuahua that sun bathes sometimes and I don't know how he stands the heat.
