August Scrap Our Stash - Blend-A-Sketch Challenge

Hello friends!

Here's a layout I made from the Scrap Our Stash August Blend-a-Sketch Challenge.  Of course I'm late posting it as usual but I still wanted to share.

I totally was inspired by the two sketches.  I turned one sketch and added the half circles from one and the layered papers from the other sketch.  And I added 2 arrows.  So fun!!

This cutie is my daughter from her freshman year when she was on the high school dance team.

I'm happy you could stop by today and look.  Check back tomorrow for my newest Scrappy Friends Challenge!!  I would love to have you join in!

Until next time...happy scrapping!


(I just noticed I still have time to enter the challenge!!  Woot!)

Sketches in Thyme August

Hello people!

Here's my August project for Sketches in Thyme.  There is a fun sketch up on the blog right now and I used my Flavors of the Month kit from The Scraproom to make it.  LOVE this photo of my goddaughter's daughter.  (my god grand baby)  She is just a pure joy. 

Go over to Sketches in Thyme and be inspired to scrap this month!  You might even win the prize they are offering!

Thanks for coming over and looking today!

Until next time...happy scrapping!

The song for August is:

 "Hot Fun In The Summertime"

End of the spring and here she comes back
Hi, hi, hi, hi, there
Them summer days, those summer days

That's when I had most of my fun back
High, high, high, high there
Them summer days, those summer days

I cloud nine when I want to
Out of school, yeah
County fair in the country sun
And everything, it's true, ooh, yeah

Hot fun in the summertime
Hot fun in the summertime
Hot fun in the summertime
Hot fun in the summertime

First of the fall and then she goes back
Bye, bye, bye, bye there
Them summer days, those summer days

Boop, boop, ba, boop, boop when I want to
Out of school, yeah
County fair in the country sun
And everything it's cool, ooh yeah

Hot fun in the summertime
Hot fun in the summertime
Hot fun in the summertime

I was inspired by the title of this song. It just seemed to go perfectly with these cute summer photos of my goddaughter and her family enjoying a fun day by the pool.
