Dog Days of Summer

Today is my day to show you my creation for our Dog Days of Summer challenge at Stamping Scrapping Challenge Central. I think we all pretty much struggled with what does Dog Days of Summer mean? Well, here is my interpretation.

I chose to use Edwin waiting for fish as my image. To me he is the perfect depiction of Dog Days of Summer.

I used the following materials:
