Dueling Darlings - August

Welcome to summer!  Hot, hot, hot!  Do you remember that song from Buster Poindexter?!  Can you believe the lead singer from The New York Dolls ended up singing Hot, Hot, Hot?!  Talk about a change of genre!

Hot, hot, hot story.....when I worked corporate, there was a gal in our office that was funny as all get out.  If you happened to be in the office on a Friday afternoon, at random, she would play Hot, Hot, Hot on her computer and crank it!   You would be on the phone and hear 'Ole Ole Ole' and be like 'Um, I gotta go now'.  LOL  Now here you had some pretty serious and high paid individuals whoopin' and singin' Hot, Hot, Hot.   One time someone did not put their big shoe company executive (think swoosh) on hold and just put their phone down in their office, came back and the big shoe exec asked "Where are you?!"  He laughed when he was told "Our office".

Speaking of Hot, Hot, Hot our Dueling Darlings theme this month is It's So Hot...Let's Cool Off.   Judy, was our hostess this month.  She sent the most jam packed kit.  All sorts of hot things to work with.  Thank you, Judy!  I ended up using the Close To My Heart image Beach Babe, Margarita CP from American Crafts, a K&Company brad and some Cricut die cuts.

We were asked to share how we like to cool off in the hot summer.  It is our busy time of year for business, so we do not get to go as often as we would like, but love to go boating at the lake.  Nothing like a fast boat ride to take the heat off!  DH was just looking longingly at his water ski just the other day.    

Please check out the Dueling Darling creations just a click away on my sidebar.  I hope that you are all enjoying a fabulous summer!
