Simon Says Challenge: Ode to Sunshine

My interpretation is a bit more summer memories...certainly of sunshine and flowers, gorgeous colors, lazy days, swinging in the hammock....but also a few special nights going to the drive in movies.

My tag background is something I played around with in my Techniques Toolbox class, trying a watermark resist. It hasn't really worked for me yet, I need the reinker, not the pad I think. Colors remind me of summer.

You need a ticket for the movies, and the movie reel...

You get there by car, and what better than a convertible for the outdoor movies (minus bugs or rain). I picture the people from this time in a car like this with scarves flying out behind them. Hence the ribbons flowing out behind.

Put it all together, and you get my ode to summer, ready to head in for the challenge at Simon Says.

I think most of the drive in movie theaters are gone by now, memories of the past, but I have a drive in just down the road from where I live called the Ozoner. So, in my neck of the woods we are lucky enough to still be able to fill the car and go down to the outdoor theater for an evening of fun at the movies.
