Summer vacation

Schools are either closed, or close to it, so kids and teachers (and some parents - haha), can enjoy their summer vacation.  The temperatures continue to climb upwards, so this image from The Paper Shelter is very fitting -- she's trying to stay cool, any way she can!  I've colored her with prismas, tucked a couple doilies behind for a lacy effect, added to the lace strip along the bottom (thanks to my BFF, Gail, for sending me this gorgeous lace), then ran a daisy patterned ribbon in the center of the lace.  I unearthed the sunglasses, soda glass and buttons from my stash.   The sentiment has been computer generated.  Wishing everyone a fantastic summer!
