The Open-Minded Creative Fun "Summer Foods" Challenge - The East Wind

Hello friends,

I am coming to you today to share with you a fun "Summer Food" challenge just starting over at "Open-Minded Crafting Fun" challenge blog. Which summer food is your favorite? I love the fruits that come available in the summer, like watermelon and strawberries. That is why I choose this image by one of our amazing sponsors, "The East Wind". Other sponsors this week include "Digi Stamps 4 Joy", "Oak Pond Creations", and "Whoopsi Daisy Designs". Please click on their names above to visit their websites. Between all 4 sponsors they have such an array of images to choose from. Stop by the "Open-Minded Crafting Fun" Challenge blog to see what other projects the rest of the design team members made this week.
