July PL card

I used sketch #78 at  "SKETCHES IN THYME PL STYLE"  to make my card to start my July PL pages.   I do Project Life by the month and not the week so always like to start with some kind of month card.   This sketch worked great.

The link is above and here is the sketch.

Elle's First July 4th

We were all together for July 4th this year,  we did the hamburger, hot dog, brat cook-out,  went swimming and watched NY fireworks on TV and still had time to drive out to a viewing spot for the local fireworks.

This was Elle's first July 4th celebration & I bought this blue and white striped outfit to wear for the day and sitting up here on these red cushions was perfect for taking a picture to celebrate this holiday for the first time.

I'll enter this at  "LASTING MEMORIES"    The new challenge this week is........

LM #352 - Scrap that 4th of July adventure!

We want you to show us your 4th of July adventure! If you didn't have an adventurous American holiday or are not American, show some red, white, and blue. or show some sparkle in your layout.

Celebrate July 4th

I love July 4th layouts but don't have a lot of pictures but here is the first one I get to make for this year.   Our granddaughters down in Orlando had a party at home with crafts and fun foods.

I'm entering this layout in two different challenges.  STICK IT DOWN & SCRAP OUR STASH

First here is the sketch challenge at   "STICK IT DOWN"   It was perfect to use two 3x4 pictures of the girls and their party plates and food.   Here is the sketch.

Next I used the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge at  "SCRAP OUR STASH"    I used the middle veritcal column of red/white/blue colors, stars and a tag.

Fathers Day 2017

     Sketch #91 is now up at  "THE MEMORY NEST"   Circles, circles everywhere.   I went with three different doily designs and all different colors, to pull the bits of colors out of the background paper and also from what the Avery and Dylan have on with their Dad and the other colors in the picture.   I thought this was such a sweet picture so it was fun to scrap it for the girls ongoing scrapbook.

Here is the sketch and the link to  "THE MEMORY NEST"

Cancun 1995

I've been having fun lately making layouts with some pictures I found at my Dads house in May.
My Mom and Dad, my husband and our two kids all went on a week long vacation to Cancun.
We had so much fun. sitting out side every day and just relaxing, watching the kids play in the ocean
and in the sand.   We walked around at night to find a new fun place for dinner.  It was all such a great time.   I only had a few picture so was thrilled to find more that I didn't have at Dad's house.

So for my reveal for the week one of July challenge #283 at  "SKETCHES IN THYME" I made this layout.    Here is the sketch and I hope you will play along too.
