Flashback Friday - Picnic Basket

Winter has arrived! Earlier in the month I did say that it was still nice and warm down here in Australia not like winter at all, well this past week winter has begun to make its presence felt! It started with cold winds which hung around the weekend while my DH was trying to put up our new fence - not pleasant having to work in that all day. Fortunately the wind has gone but the cold is staying!

I know from posts on SCS that summer holidays are about to begin in the States. To help me forget about winter and celebrate the coming of summer in the Northern Hemisphere I thought I would share with you this Friday my picnic basket scene I created a few years back. I am sure that many of you will be enjoying picnic during the coming months. The picnic basket stamp is from Museum of Modern Rubber, not long after I ordered this stamp and a few others this company closed their doors which is a shame as there were a few more I would have like to have gotten eventually - but guess that is not to be. The picnic basket came with the lemonade glass, thermos, chicken drum, watermelon & verse plus a few other things I didn't use here. The pizza stamp is a ring in I added to help fill the blanket. I found the plastic ants in a toy shop - you can't have a picnic without ants, right!

Oh, how great, a friend of mine has a picnic basket stamp, I am not sure who makes it but it was a two sided stamp. It was fun to play with but your layout is fantastic.
