This is my take on the challenge:

As a true Washingtonian, I whine when the temp goes above 75 degrees...but that doesn't mean that I don't like Summer, I just don't like the heat:)

My 'wide' card is filled with Summer Time goodness:

Echo Park Every Day Eclectic
Dear Lizzie Neapolitan
Crate Paper Pretty Party
Rak'd washi
Green thread

I was inspired by this layout ala Kelly Purkey...
