UKS Summer Snap competition

Good Morning all

Today I'm bringing you something a little different.. over on my favourite website, UKScrappers..they are running a Photography scavenger hunt! I had intended to join in another one on another blogbut this year I've decided to join in this one instead (maybe that's on account of not actually starting the other one even though it's been running for a month already! lol)

So, here is the list

1. Vapour trails or clouds
A beautiful summers day in Hayling Island

2. A horse drawn vehicle

The best I could do! lol

3. Flowers in bloom

Taken on Hayling Island

4. A summer job in the garden.. substituted for 'Play'

5. Something typifying your holiday destination, or your home town if you are planning a staycation 
                              Taken on Hayling Island beach while on a mini break

6. Hats

My gorgeous grand-daughter.. in full colour and using a colour altering app.

Here is the layout I made with this photo

7. Ice cream 
            Taken at a pub we stopped at for lunch in Hayling Island.. we didn't actually have any though! lol
