Riley and Company - Summer Fun!

Hi friends! 
It's time for a new Riley and Company challenge,
the cutest little Moose that ever was!
This week, our challenge is ~ Summer Fun!

Our summer has had all kinds of wonderfulness,
but one of our favorite past-times is just being still.
Because of how hot it is here during the day,
the backyard breaths full of life in the coolness of the evenings -
the kids, us, the dogs ...
 all head outdoors to enjoy the beauty of our tropics!
When the kids were little, we build them a wooden play fort,
tree house, slide, bridge, pirate rope, jungle gym, swing set play set.
It's a utopia of wooden bliss :)

It's a beautiful thing to see all 4 kids all lined up on their swings ...
no longer little, but still loving their space ♥

My humble card offering today is using Swinging Riley ~
created with scraps in my bin and using a very old sketch in my files.
The buttons were on my desk and were a nearly perfect match -
You know they had to be on the card :)

Want to Play Along?
If you would like to play along with us of course we would love to have you! 
To play create a card using Riley and Company images.
Once you have created your card/project,
 post to the Riley and Company challenge blog and place a comment with a link to your card/project to this post so we can see what you have created.
 If you upload your card/project to Splitcoast Stampers, please include the keyword Riley1515.   We can't wait to see what you create! 
By now, I'm on the road to college!
We're taking off for a few days to get dd to her orientation and registered,
as well as scrambling to get so much accomplished while we're up there.
In the meantime, get our your Riley and Company stamps
and show us your Summer Fun cards!

Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!

  15. Riley is cooling off in this breezy swing. He is just cute! Love that diagonal stripe background - very festive for Riley & his playtime. I remember the humidity of the summer in So. Fla. At least you do get some breeze. (we pretty much did). Enjoy the summer evenings. TFS & Hugs
