Today was the first really "hot" day we've had since moving to New Zealand over 8 months ago. It climbed up to 31*C (about mid 80'sF) which felt pretty hot! I took advantage of the heat to get some laundry done. It was drying in less than 30 minutes on the line! Nice!! We also took the boys to the beach. They love going on a less sunny day so this day was perfect in their eyes. I have to say, the air might have been warm but the water was still FREEZING! All the boys now have wet suits so they thought the water was just fine. Well, sort of. :)
When we got home, the boys ran off to play with the neighbor girl. I brought in some of the laundry and then pulled a few weeds. I decided to come inside while everyone was away and sneak in some scrapbooking time. :) I got this layout done for DesignDollies. I'm new to Design Dollies but I'm gathering they put out 3 challenges in a month and then at the end of it, you are to use all 3 to create a "trifecta" layout. The elements this time around are their chosen colors, this sketch, and to freehsand something...writing or embellishments or whatever. I used my embrodery thread to make the word "beach" for my title Beach Boys.
