Summer Is Explore "The Lost World of Tambun"

This layout was created for DT Andrew's Colourful Creations Blog hop. I wasn't too sure what to feature for summer actually and I really, really want to do away with beaches. After all, having the sun almost all year round, we don't qualify to be called Summer. Still, for the fun of creativity, I created this layout with thoughts of completing it in a breeze. It was not meant to be. I couldn't find my tons of die-cuts, so I just had to make do with what's available at hand. (Grr....I found them the next day after I had uploaded this layout). Then I couldn't find my die-cut Arrow that I knew I had kept in one of my box of stash. In the end, using free hand and the Momoyo package, I had the arrow drawn and cut to add to this layout.
Oh....the Theme for this blog hop is summer. The challenge by Andrew is create A LAYOUT USING THE WORDS " SUMMER IS " IN YOUR TITLE. I WOULD ALSO LIKE YOU INCLUDE FLOWERS ( ONE OF MY FAVORITE EMBELLISHMENTS ), A DIE CUT OF SOME KIND AND BRADS.
It didn't take me long to choose my photos. Since I had not been photograhing in a while, I used my older photos for this challenge. These were taken at "The Lost World of Tambun" when hubby decided to take us on a day trip to Ipoh by taking a ride on the ETS during it's launch to the public. During the promotion period, the prize of the ticket for adult was RM18. Once we reached Ipoh, we decided to take a ride on the old rickety bus to Tambun. It was an experience worth remembering. On this particular day, it was extremely hot and all I want to do was to be under the blasting fan all the time. My daughter fared better - she spent more than an hour in the water and as always, I had so much difficulty coaxing her out of it. These photos showed some of the areas we were able to sight dring our four hour trip there.
Supplies: Kraft cardstocks / Flowers - Momoyo, Kaiser / Adhesive Ribbon / MT Washi Tapes / Memory Makers Die-cut / Delfino Brads.
