Here Comes Summer

I so hope the title of this post is correct, a nice spell of hot weather would be so welcome so fingers crossed! Not that I want it too hot, as I have a busy week ahead getting some practice in at phlebotomy (taking blood).  To date I've only practiced on dummys so I'm guessing I'll be hot enough with a real arm in front of me!

Anyway, enough of that and back to the latest challenge over at Ooh La La, where the theme is

"Here Comes Summer!"

Now for this one I just had to use my new Paula Oakley CD and a gorgeous deck chair image.  So reminds me of the prom at Brighton.  We spent so many hours down at the beach there, swimming in the sea and sun bathing and on sunny days the hire of deck chairs was big business!

I have to look the other way when they take my blood - so I would be no good taking it from other people LOL!
Lovely summery feel to this card, would be lovely if we had days like this wouldn't it.
