Sights, Sounds & Tastes of Summer...

There is nothing more of
"The Sights, the Sounds, the Tastes of Summer" 
than Concert in the Park on the 4th of July!  

613 Ave C's latest challenge is this wonderful theme!  Out of several sponsors, I was lucky to get to choose this image from the Zuri Artsy Craftsy Store - his name is "Harry"!  Oh my - I'm in love with him!  This is definitely a fun challenge and the inspiration from the DT is awe inspiring!  Do go check out the fabulous talent that Kathi & Chana have put together to inspire you and get your project in before the week is up!
