Hot "Nuff

That pool brings back memories.  Didn't everyone have one?  Back in my single days one of my friends had one, she said it was for when her niece visited but I caught her in it  without a niece.  When my daughter was little we had one for her.  There was a particularly hot day.  I had gone out shopping and when I came back I found her along with her two of her teen-age siblings and her father all in that little pool.  There wasn't an inch of spare space but they were all having a grand ole time in it.  Too bad I don't have a photo of it to share.

What you might not be able to see so well in the photo - glossy accents on the water and goggles, eyelets (remember eyelets) on the circle element with the cord pulled through them, and the charm is a doghouse.

Here's the deets:
stamp - Mo Manning digi "It's Hot Out"
ink - hp printer
paper - Stampin' Up "Kiwi Kiss", "Riding Hood Red" and "Glorious Green" card stock; October Afternoon "Boarding Pass" dp
miscellaneous - copics; Glossy Accents; hemp twine; doghouse charm; Creative Memories cutting system; My Favorite Things "Skyline" border; brads; eyelets; machine stitching
