This is going to be me soon. Off on a sun filled holiday - eating ice cream in my bikini - looking glamorous by the pool - hair flowing in the warm breeze .... And then I woke up.

I am actually off on a sun filled holiday soon (fingers crossed there will be no summer storms) and I should have woken up at that point because all that ice cream, bikini and hair flowing was a sure sign that dreams may be based on fact but they become fantasy very quickly.

The more likely scenario would be: There will be a one piece with a wrap to hide my 'bits'. Ice cream in the heat drips faster than you can eat it so that often results in lots of slurping and mopping up. So now I have ice cream on my wrap, it has flicked in my hair, and then, OMG there is a breeze! Now there is ice cream on the man next to me and my wrap has flown up over my head. That sounds more like it. I am looking forward to my holiday and you may not have noticed, but perhaps I am really neeeeeeding a holiday.

I have used a Saturated Canary image, Summer Breeze paper pad from Kaisercraft and the following Copics:
