Spittin the Seeds-Traditon

Welcome to The Watermelon Crawl Blog Hop! Who doesn’t like to bite into a red, ripe, juicy watermelon on a hot summer day? Yum!!!! If you drive down South, you can find people selling them on the side of the road, out of their pick-up trucks. I think these are the best, because they come right out of the garden.  You will always find a cute watermelon cut out at a baby shower or wedding shower, we eat them on the 4th of July, and we make sherbet and wine. You will find them in our kitchens; on our walls, curtains and cookie jars. And they are so darn fun to craft with.  Today we have some very talented women that want to share their watermelon crafts with you. So come do the Watermelon Crawl with us! You don’t want to miss anything so the beginning of the hop will start at Pamela’s Blog

My Project is a layout I did of when the Grandkids were at our house for their last visit before going back home to South Dakota this past July.
 Tradition at our house and probably most other houses is when we get watermelon there will be a seed spittin contest and if your hit you loss (something like tag). I found out about the tradition shortly after my husband and I met and we got the watermelon and he let it rip. So 19 years later it's still going on and our grand-kids from South Dakota weren't any exception to that tradition. So the last night we had them over for a visit at our house it was watermelon time after dinner. Awe Amber I think she was the first to get hit, LOL. All in fun though..... It was a great way to end a wonderful visit.

Now you must crawl over to Miriam to see what is left on the vine.
But remember… to be eligible for the candy you must follow ALL the giveaway rules above.
Thanks for hopping with us and remember…
Have fun y’all, do the watermelon crawl!
