Squigglefly Monday Challenge!!!

Happy 4th of July!!!
I hope you are celebrating your Independence Day with lots of friends and family!

What a great way to start off the week......a holiday and a Squigglefly Challenge!
Today's challenge also introduces you to part of the new Squigglefly DT.
I'm a part of Heather's Headliners DT and we will be posting creations every other week starting today!

So, without further ado...........This week's challenge!

Now is the time for the beach, the sun, swimming, picnics, baseball, etc.  Create something that makes you think of summer!!!

Remember you can participate in this challenge no matter what digi or stamp you have; however, if you want to be in the drawing for some FREE Squigglefly images, you must use at least one Squigglefly image.  And, with all of the images that Squigglefly has to won't have a problem finding something for this challenge.

For some reason, I am stuck on my favorite line of Squigglefly images by Lynne Stansbery......the Shy Bear images!  I used one last week and I'm using another one this week.  Shy Bear: Swellin' with Melon is just perfect for this challenge because when I think of summer, I think of red, juicy watermelon!!!

I just liked this non-traditional view to show you the double buttons.

Aren't those die cuts from PTI just adorable as a border?  So cute!

I'm also entering this into my very first Deconstructed Sketch #8 Sketch Challenge!  I've been watching and watching and when I saw this one for this week, I couldn't pass it up!  It was absolutely perfect for the image and die cut watermelons!

Materials Used (All PTI, unless otherwise noted):
Squigglefly Digital Images - Shy Bear: Swellin with Melon

Great job Stephanie, I really enjoy the Deconstructed Sketch too. Wonderful scallops at the end, they look like watermelon slices.
