Happy Birthday at the Lake

This idea came to me when i went walking in the rain this week. (I did have an umbrella so i didn't get too wet).  The challenge at TOMIC is to make a card with their sketch and to use the theme, Summer vacation.  Another challenge i am using this card for is at Tilda's Town where i am to use an accessory as well.  At 7 Kids College Fund the challenge is to use a Nellie Snellen and/or Layers. One more challenge is a photo inspiration from Dutch Magnolia Lovers.

So here is the memory, my parents own a cottage on a lake and every summer our family spent our summer vacation there.  We used to have a wooden flat bottom fishing boat with was a perfect size to learn to row sister is just 16 months younger than me and one of us would be on the left and the other on the right and we would row (we were probably 5 & 6yrs old... we were with my dad fishing.  There is a picture of us in our pjs with my dad in the boat...i guess we were early fishermen.  So i decided to paint the Tilda boat green just like our fishing boat and color the Tilda like she was me when i was young at the lake.

To make the boat work on this card i cut it in half and put it on each side of Tilda.  I also wrapped twine around a toothpick for a flag post and added a charm to the top of the flag post.

 Here is my card:
