Totally Tilda - Design Team Call

Hello my dears,  What a fabulous weekend we've had with the warm sunshine and calm breezes,  I've been in and out of my garden which has been such a pleasure.

I've also been creating this sweet Summer Memory file for a dear friend who is having a tough time just now!!!  As friends we try and have as many BBQ's as we can when the weather permits and are perpetually trying to outdo each other (in the nicest possible way) when it comes to BBQ menu's and the amazing cocktails we concoct and share when the eating is finished, lol. This will I am sure be filled by the end of the summer with our shenanigans. 

I've got an ulterior motive for this creation though, this is going to be my entry into the

that Susie is having with the theme of Summer.  This is my interpretation of Summer, sunny colours, flowers, BBQ's, having fun with friends and making memories to treasure.   

If you love your Tilda's then you need to pop over and take part in the DT call,  you know what they say!! if you're not in it you can't win it.  

I've had the utter pleasure of being part of Susie's Tildarette's for the past year and I so want to stay part of this fabulous DT.  So I'm keeping my fingers, toes, legs, arms and eyes crossed. lol.   Think I've just turned into a contortionist, hehehe.

Oh and don't worry! my friend will not see this as she doesn't have a computer and hasn't a clue how to surf the net!! she can't even swim.  

Anyhoo!! that's it from me for today,  I'm off back out to the garden  with my kindle and a nice glass of ice cold "something"

Have a wonderful day everyone.


I would love to enter the following Challenges:

Crafts and Me Challenge:  Something Old this time - My Prima flowers and WOC flowers are ancient - at least 1 year old as is my sting pearls.

Simply Magnolia Challenge:  Have the theme of Layers and Lace, with at least 4 layers.
