Wow, I'm first? I'm never first! Congrats on your blog-a-versary! I really enjoy seeing your creations and being inspired by them. My favorite summer memory would have to be all the softball games. Softball playing was a family event for us...my dad coached our church team, my mom pitched, and I started playing 2nd base when I was just about 10 years old (LOL, made some of those ladies maaaad when I got picked to be on the church league all-star team!). Once my sister was old enough, she started playing as well. We spent almost every weekend playing and we loved it!

Congratulations!

My favorite summertime memory was spending the summers at my dad's house on the lake. I almost never got dressed because I just wore a swimsuit all the time!

YAY!!! Congrats on your blogaversary DeeDee!!!! What fun candy you're giving away! Now I'm trying to think what my favorite summer memory is. I grew up in a neighborhood full of kids. It was considered to be "little Italy" so you can imagine. Every family had six or eight kids. LOL! We constantly played dress up and hide and seek and tag and all kinds of games. So it was probably just playing with the neighborhood kids every day. Thanks for the fun DeeDee!!!! HUGS!!

Cindy said...

Generous batch of candy! Hope its mine soon!

Favorite summertime memories as a child and now as a grandmother, are family vacations visiting family on the coast of Maine! Love it. Getting ready to take my 3 granddaughters to Maine to meet their great-great-grandmother!

I really liked your Hoppy Day card. My favorite summer memories are spending all day at the park, swimming with friends and picnicing.

We used to go to a county park in the thumb of Michigan. We had a travel trailer on a lot there and stayed the summer---we had so much fun---playing on the beach, having campfires, etc.

Hi there - my favorite summer memory/thing to do was to go fishing with my grandfathers. They both loved to fish. I just loved to shine the flashlight in the water to see the fish. (Not sure how many flashlights I dropped into the lake - oops!) Thanks for sharing your blog.

Congratulations on your blogaversary. Your blog is great, loaded with eye candy. Love just looking. My favorite childhood memory is going to my aunts house every Sunday to swim in her pool. That is where the whole family gathered. We had cookouts, the grownups played cards and us kids swam. I miss my aunt & uncle and all those special memories.

Congratulations! My best summer memory is from 2003. I just finished my studies and went on a working vacation to the south of France. I didn't know anyone there, but it was a super vacation! I had to do the dishes after breakfast and dinner, but the rest of the day I could do what I wanted: walking, swimming, etc. Greetings from Belgium, Annelies

As a kid, I would spend all my time outside with my friends. Now I spend my summers traveling to different race tracks and visit my friends. Some things never change, Just the surroundings.

michelle said...

woo hoo congratulations on your 1 year anniversary !! I love your creations and you have given me so much inspiration !!my favourite summer memory would have to be spending the summers at my grandparents with my sisters and cousins while our parents worked. I loved my grandparents so much, my grandma and I were so close, she tought me to sew and knit and always took us on picnics, day trips to the beach and blackberry picking then we would come home and make jam and boy what a mess we would make lol !! Oh how i wish they were still here ! Those good old days !!

9kids said...

Wow, a whole year already! Good for you! My favorite summer memory is going to my grandparents' house. They had a garden where part of their lawn should have been, and I loved roving around in it and eating the green peas right off the pods.

mochamama said...

Happy Blogaversary!! my fav summer memory is definately at my brothers' cottage. Scrapbooking for hours at the diningroom table while overlooking the lake, lounging on the air tube while floating in the lake, and absolutley nothing else to do and no responsibilities!!!!!

Nettie said...

Happy Blog Anniversary! My favorite childhood memory is going to a lake with a sandy beach and swiimming from dawn to dusk. When we had enough of the water we would build sand castles.

Congrats DeeDee, it sure has been very fun and inspirational visiting your blog all this time...
OK! Here I go... my best Summer memory is when I was 6 years old, 1972 to be exact. Summer of 1972... my parents travel with us for the first time from Cali Colombia to the USA, and we travel the state of Florida by car. It was also the first time I went to Walt Disney World and they kept it as a surprise. What a Dream, come true.!!! I remember almost everything about this trip, but if I write it down, it will take pages and pages... Thank you DeeDee for an awesome year of projects...

Kathy Maynard said...

Dee-Dee your creations are absolutely beautiful. I aspire to be as good as this some day!
My favorite summertime memory has to be the month long vacation we took as a family when I was young, 7 of the nine children attended along with my (crazy) parents. We Camped, yes I said camped for a month but never form more than 2 nights in any one place, We went from Chicago Il, to Spokane WA and all the stops inbetween, It was a new memory every day !

aworld said...

Wow...ONE YEAR, that's great. My favorite memory was when my neighborhood friends decided to have a backyard fair. We did games, rides, even had a zoo (our dogs dressed up). We did all the advertising and everything.

Lois Yates said...

Congratulations on your blog anniversary! You have so much talent and I just LOVE looking at all of your cards.
Favorite Summertime Memory. Lake Lanier camping a few years ago with my kids and grandkids. We used to take our kids when they were little and now to be able to watch the grandkids was just awesome! Now I live on Lake Lanier and get to watch then all of the time. I am so blessed!

My favorite summertime memory was when I was about 10 yrs. old & I went to Church Camp. I loved the swimming & craft time, yep even way back then I loved crafts. Just seemed like our craft time was too short LOL.
Anyway thanks for having this fun little summertime reminder.

HAPPY BLOGIVERSARY!!!!!!!! and MmmmMmmmmmMmm! gorgeous blog candy!!!

ok, a summertime memory...gosh i have LOADS of favorites, but many of them are centered around trips to the beach at wildwood, nj: playing in the sand, amassing HUGE collections of shells and rocks and hermit crabs (the latter sensibly but tearfully left behind on command of mom!) swimming in the ocean and the hotel pool, walking the boardwalk at night to get ice cream, going on the amusement rides...actually, even though i've not been to wildwood in years, i *STILL ENJOY* almost all of those things!!! :)

happy summer and best wishes for many more FABULOUS blog years!

craftaddict said...

Well done on your blogaversary.
My favourite summer memory is when my stepson came out to visit us when we lived in Greece. It was the first time he had flown, the first time he had been abroad and his first day out on a sailing boat. He is getting married on Saturday so I will have another favourite summer memory.

cricut fan lbb said...

Yippee!! One year-that's fantastic! Congratulations on a Blog well done. Your creations are very inspiring. You are so talented. My fav sumertime memory is the back yard BBQ's my Dad would host. His brisket was to die for, the grilled ears of corn, hand cranked ice cream with fresh peaches, mom's special potato salad...the list goes on. We would just hang out and enjoy the evening, food, and company!

Anonymous said...

Congratulations! Your blog was the second one I bookmarked after BBTB. Love everything you do.

My favorite summer memory was all the time I spent at my grandparents house. I couldn't wait for school to let out so I could spend time with them all by myself.

Mandiannie said...

My favorite summer memories were watching a game of softball and eating cherries out of a bag. to this day when I eat cherries I think of summer and baseball.

Happy Blogaversary!!

My favorite summer memory is swimming . . . we used to have a pool in our backyard, and I was like a little fish! Then after our pool came down, I used to spend all day practically every day at the park pool with my girlfriends, and we swam . . . we weren't the girls in the makeup that just hung out working on our tans . . . we would spend all day in the water . . . and the evenings smelling of chlorine!

I also used to enjoy a good 16-inch softball game!

Awesome blog candy!

DesertStar said...

Primitive Seasons said...

There were eight children in my family and we didn't have too much. My mom would make popsickles in those little plastic molds that were so good. And also my neighbor had shore property and she would take us down there to swim in the Chesapeake Bay. I LOVED it and still love the water today. It's 100 degrees here. Sure would feel good!

First of all...a big CONGRATS on your blog-a-versary! You know what they say...time flies when you're having fun! Anyway my favorite summertime memory was of spending the weekends at my aunt's beach apartment and sleeping on the floor in my favorite fold out bed! Thanks for the fun!

kisatrtle said...

Congrats on your aniversary. I have many summer memories, but I think I most remember the two boys who lived across the street from us. It was when being a latch key kid wasn't uncommon and we spent most of our summer days with little to no adult supervision. My sister and I and those two boys. Brothers I never had. Everytime I think of them I smile. One of those boys has since passed away, a car accident stole him from us at the age of 20, but there are so few memories I have of him that don't make me smile. I think I'm signing off to run through the sprinkler...LOL

Regina Easter said...

MeMe said...

Congratulations on your first blog-a-versary. Your blog is very good and I enjoy looking at it often. My favorite summer memory is when my family and my cousin's families would go to my grandmother's house every weekend. My dad and uncles barbequed chicken halves for lunch. We all played games outside and later inside until we had to go home. My cousins and I are still close and love to get together as often as we can. There is nothing like family members who are also friends.

My favorite summer time memory is summer vacations in Quebec. We would go to my Grandma's cabin on the St-Lawrence river and spend a week there and then we would go to my other Grandparent's farm and spend a week there. Between the beach bonfires and the farm animals there are memories to last a lifetime.

I'm probably too late but I have to share anyway... My latest fav summer memory is meeting my sister for the very first time & spending 4 months with her!! Even though it wasn't the "normal" Aussie hot summer it was awesome to be able to meet her & do all of the "first" things together, like cuddles,christmas & birthdays etc & our beach holiday we shared before she returned home to Utah....
