We love summer

I have recently been using my  colouring in pages, fussy cut  then  added to a journal page.
I couldn't have timed this journal page any better to create,  as  today was  the start of a new theme over at 

where Bleubeard and Elizabeth are hosting and gave us the theme.......
Summertime Love
 and whoopee this page seems to fit a happy summer mood.. so I can join in straight away.

On the left you can see how it all began. A row of ladies dancing. I made the background using a napkin and stencils


I used a piece of a doily as a base for the word panel, but  the words just  didn't fit the way my thoughts were working , so I decided to alter it in my digital computer program.
I am much happier adding quotes etc this way as my hand writing is not so good.

Thank you for calling in to see me today, you are always welcome here.


  1. Love your dancing ladies. Yvonne

  2. Beautiful the summer dancer!
    The journal is beautifully designed!
    Happy Sunday

  3. Beautiful ladies, they seem very happy!

  4. What a FUN first AJJ entry, Yvonne. Weren't you lucky that the dancing girls fit so well into the summer theme! Of course, I loved the sentiment of girls having SUN, too. It's an all round gorgeous hybrid, a genre that you create so well.

  5. I love your dancing ladies Yvonne. They look like they are having fun. Dancing under the moon perhaps at a girls weekend? :) Happy weekend. Hugs-Erika

  6. Fantastic page with your girlies dancing in the sun, that's the way to live! Hugs, Valerie

  7. An amazing page with dancing Summer Ladies. Love it

  8. Love this page Yvonne, at first I thought your ladies were leaf fairies dancing in the summer garden. Great spread xxx

  9. Fantastic collage Yvonne. It is so good to see how you are using the colouring pages

    Love Chrissie xx

  13. Wonderful job fussy cutting the cute Girls, I love their wild hair :) Another pretty background from the napkins, and I like the quotes you added.

  14. The colouring book came up trumps! I initially thought that the dancers were die-cuts. Nice little floral backdrop too :-)

  17. Oh wow this is brilliant fun and really made me smile Yvonne..
    I read the quote as 'fun' not 'sun' at first, so going to be singing that Cyndi Lauper song for the rest of the day now ... but sounds good with sun instead of fun too :)
    Hope you're having a great weekend.. Gill xx

  18. How clever to use colouring pages for a journal. Your dancing ladies look so happy, a great spread, wonderful background and lovely summery feel!
