Take Your Daughter to Work Day and a BLOG HOP

This is my first reveal for the July challenges at "LASTING MEMORIES".     The theme for all the
July challenges are going to be "Childhood Games"   The first one is Marbles.   You can make your layout about the game itself,  or if you happen to collect marbles, time to showcase them in a layout or just use the picture below as your inspiration.     That is what I did.   I had this diecut piece of paper that I just put over a piece of solid blue yardstick.  I thought if you looked at each circle in the die-cut alone you could see a marble with the the design inside of it.   Then i just went with more
round/circle elements, on the two pieces of patterned papers and then the circle frame I cut and used.

Can't wait to see how everyone else interprets this challenge.    Hope to see a lot of entries and trying for this months prize.

Check out the details here at   "LASTING MEMORIES"  and see what the other design team made.
You have till the end  of the month to enter all the challenges.

Plus I didn't get an extra post done for the blog hop.   But just comment here to be included.
I'll send a small prize to the random winner that comments and is a follower or becomes a new follower to my blog.   Here is the list of blog hop entries.     You should have come to my blog after visiting Sandy's blog and then after mine go back to Lasting Memories.

Here is the order of the blog hop in case you get lost along the way:
