  3. Summer in Florida seems to never end... I'm tired of it by the time it officially starts! But my craft nook is in the coolest part of the house and is my favorite escape, followed closely by the pool a few yards beyond the back door.

  4. My favorite part of summer are the lazy days at the beach or the picnics in the park. I also enjoy the time I get to spend in my vegetable garden tending to the plants.

  5. My favorite part of summer is more free time to play! We are not bogged down with nightly homework, so we can play games, arts and crafts and whatever else we feel like doing! And more time for me to look at projects like this cute frame!

  26. Ha! I don't know if it's my favorite part of summer or not, but it's vacations! Well, it was my favorite part until Monday. On our way back from vacation, driving through Arkansas our AC went out on the car. In all the times we drove places when I was a kid, I don't remember it being this hot. Maybe I've just become a weakling as an adult! (I typed this on Wed because on Monday I was sweating through Arkansas. I may be too late for the drawing, but oh well. At least the AC on the car was fixed yesterday!)

  27. Love the butterfly project! My favorite part of summer is the kids being out of school. We have a park in or neighborhood that has a creek running through it. A favorite swimming hole for all the kids in the area. When our daughter was young (now 27) she used to love heading down there for a cool dip in the creek.

This year my youngest decided she wanted to grow some of her favorite things- maters and berries! it was a blast watching her water and pick the harvest every day (even though it was 1 berry or 2 cherry maters!LOL!) great memory to cherish and scrap! Thanks for the chance to win some fab goodies!
