Fun in the Pool

The challenge at SWAT (Scrap Warriors Advanced Training) is Hot Fun in the Summertime.

And what could be more fun in the summertime than swimming at the pool and staying cool.

That is just what I got to do with Kai and Koda and Mylan last weekend when we went to

visit them in Texas.   The pool was just the right place to be in the Texas heat.

Boys Rule Scrapbook Kit - June sketch challenge

I really liked working with this sketch and will use it again.    The few times I have scrapped pictures on an angle I have really really liked the look of it.  

So I was very excited to start working with this sketch.

Bryce playing Catch

I love this picture of my Grandson Bryce.  You can see him concentrating on the ball in the air and making the "catch"

I used the new June layout sketch at  www.artfuldelight.blogspot. com  

The circles in the layout were perfect for this and I used paper pieced baseball as the two circles as embellishments.  I've been hoarding this piece of background paper for quite awhile now so I'm happy I finally found the right layout to use it with.

I love summer --- Beach challenge at The Paper Girls

The June 3rd challenge at The Paper Girls challenge blog was "The Beach"   Well the grandkids had just been to Florida for a long Memorial Day trip so one of the pictures they sent me was this one of them playing in the sand on the beach.    So PERFECT pic for this challenge and get me ready for Summer.

Frosted Designs - Things with Wings challenge

I have a new collection of Kathy Davis papers called Butterfly's Promise and had not used any of it today but new this would be a great challenge to pull out some of these papers.  

I also inked 6 wood veneer butterflies to add to the layout for more embellishments.
