LRW #145 - Watermelon

One of the best things about summer is all the great summer fruit, and Joanne has challenged us this week at Little Red Wagon to use one of her favourite fruits in our project -- WATERMELON!

I was stumped at first on what to do, but then I remembered a tag I had created using a watermelon when I guest designed for Two Scrapbook Friends last summer (see here).  It was attached to a clear bag of watermelon gummies. The candies are long gone; however, I kept the tag somewhere in my stash, so I went digging.  I tied a bow to the top of the tag and then added it to a card base that I stamped with a background definition image with Versamark.  Easy peasy!!

Speaking of fresh summer goodness, here's a look at what's been growing like crazy in our vegetable garden.
I'm a novice at growing vegetables; I didn't know you should snip off the tips of tomato plants to ensure the lower buds grow into larger tomatoes.  As a result, I have these MASSIVE tomato plants with HUNDREDS of small marinara tomatoes.  In the last few days, I have been collecting this many tomatoes each day.  I'm make lots of cucumber tomato salads--YUM!  I'm also blending them up and jarring them to make sauces later on this fall!!

Any way, hope you can play along with our WATERMELON challenge.  Be sure to check out with the other LRW gals have created using this great summer fruit!!

Thanks 4 your time!
