Happy Wednesday All!
It's time for a new, fun challenge at the 

Hosted by Team Diane and today's theme is:


here's a peek at our Inspiration Board ...
isn't it awesome!!

 I don't think I use gingham enough and it's such a
beautiful, timeless pattern ...

Here's what I've created for today's challenge . . .

 I once again found my images on Pinterest
and they both worked beautifully with the gingham papers I had in my stash.

How lucky was I to find this adorable little barefooted sweetie
dressed in the same gingham as the paper I had
and the watermelon just screamed summer happiness along with her little barefeet!
