Cooling off on a hot summer day

Lasting memories would like to know how you cool off on a hot summer day.  Hanging in the pool downing some ice cream, lying low in the shade or like my family head for the hills.

Here's how we kept cool the last time the mercury climbed in the Williamette Valley
Doesn't it look like our canoe is hoovering over the water.  My husband thought it would be cool to have a pic of the shadow of our canoe on the bottom of the lake. Little did we know how good the photo would be.  Yes, the water is that clear that you can see almost a 100ft down on a sunny day.  And talk about cold.

I used the June sketch from my scraps and more for my inspiration and used the color scheme and elements from case #31 over at CSI

Share with us how you cool of for a chance to win our monthly prize and if you'd like to join us as a guest designer don't forget to add GDT after yor name.
