Summer Fun!!

I've said it several times... summer is almost over! Where did it go? Well, for a sickly person, spending hours laying in bed... it's gonna go by fast. Did it go by fast for you? Well, anyway, I'm finding these challenges for summer fun before it's officially over. Gave me an opportunity to print out this fun summer image of two children fishing. 
When I first saw this image... it so reminded me of my daughter when she was young. By young... I'm saying about 4 or 5... thereabouts. We had a neighbor boy who was fixated on her. He was pale, pale white with freckles and the reddest hair I'd ever seen. lol He was adorable! Fat cheeks and chubby hands. How I use to love to have him visit with Nina. He followed her around like a lost puppy. It was the cutest child's crush I'd seen in a long, long time. :)
Here's my card inspired by that memory:
Teehee... twisted easel card:
Here's a view from the top so you can see the chipboard button on the bottom panel:
