Fun In The Sun

Good Morning bloggers, Last week was so hectic, there were loads happening at my youngest son's school, and as I help out, I had a Teddy bears picnic, meet and greet the new teachers, a gala day, OMG I could keep going. But now it's the school holidays I can take it a bit easier, although I have already been playing referee between my two eldest children. Now I hope to catch up on whats happening out there in blogland.

Now It's time for a new challenge today at Oldie But A Goodie This week is our lovely Lisa Jane's turn to host and she would like to see you take inspiration from the picture provided.

It had to use this Gruufie image, these Gruffies love the summer and look like they're having so much fun. This was coloured with Promarkers, using some new colours I have just got. Think I needed to go darker with the sand.

Don't forget to head over to Oldie But a Goodie for all the details of this challenge, to see the super prize from Digi Doodle Shop that is on offer to the winner. And to check out all the fabulous inspiration from my very talented team mates.
