Hey everyone, Claire here hosting the May Seasonal challenge.

I love Summer. I have so many fond memories of the wonderful Summers spent with my people.

I would like you to scrap 'your fave Summer memory'. You can use templates. You can use photos or go photoless, your choice.

My fave Summer memory is my first-ever trip to Bahia Beach (now a staple in my life). It was my first 'long drive' 4 months after passing my US driving test. I drove Lems (my bestie) and I to the beach and it was just a magical day, that changed my life. Bahia Beach is my fave Florida discovery and I love going there as often as I can, I even hosted part of my 50th birthday party last year there!


I used -
Karen Chrisman - Love Grows Here templates
et designs x Studio Basic - Aloha Summer Party Collection

I've daydreamed for countless hours, about those flowers in the surreal place where they were thriving as the trees were dying from our raging beetle kill epidemic. Still don't know where it was.

Thank you for this challenge because when I went looking on my computer for a childhood beach photo I found one I did not realise I had.

When my grandchildren were little my daughter often brought them to stay for weeks at a time in the summer. We would take the boat down to the lake early in the morning. We'd play and eat our packed lunch and then return to our cabin for a much-deserved afternoon rest.

Who doesn't have fond summer memories of camp!

Summer is about 5 minutes long in Minnesota so we started summer early in Key West in January. Summer means the Hawaiian shirts and my dresses come out to play, they all (and there are a lot of them) got to come out early for summer. The dresses were jealous that they had to stay home.

Thank you, Claire for hosting this nice challenge!
I like the temperate weather! In all these years, May has been the best time to vacation on the Island. It's not too crowded yet and the sun isn't burning so mercilessly yet.

Thank you so much for hosting my dear, I love your layout! I really love camping, and the photos were took before pandemic, when camping and traveling it was fun.
