Swim

There's a new challenge site called Scrap and Stamp Saturday. They have their first summer sketch challenge posted TODAY, and I wanted to participate, so I made this layout very quickly!


The first challenge: the theme for the layout is summer - anything summer you want to do as long as (a) you use the sketch and (b) you use two stamps somewhere on your layout! Well, I rotated the sketch since my three photos were all horizontal, and I used three stamps in the bottom right corner. The butterfly and the "fabulous" box are Pink Paislee, and the "Girls just wanna have fun!" is CTMH. The papers and border stickers are all My Mind's Eye, and the title is Heidi Swapp chipboard. I also added a silk Prima and a Making Memories button. So, what do you think? Not bad for a half hour layout, huh? Fun challenge!! It's kinda gloomy here, so my photo isn't the best, but you can click on the layout to see it larger!

The girls and I are leaving in a couple of hours for our Arizona vacation. I'll see you on June 17th. Thanks for stopping by!

What a fab layout! I bought a new paddling pool for the garden 3 years ago but we havn't had a descent enough summer since then to get it out. It's still in the box! LOL!

Maybe this year will be the year of a great British summer?! :-)
