having a blast.

yesterday this wonderful sketch went up on the Scrapbook Circle blog:
here is my take on the sketch:

these pictures have been waiting on my desk for over a year waiting to be scrapped.  it was last year's fourth of July--it was hot and HUMID and my kids swam for like 6 hours (short breaks for water, & snacks) they had a BLAST!  And it happened to be on the fourth of July (hence the fourth in the middle of the star...):
if you have followed me for any sort of time you will notice that I have a thing for pop dots, I didn't for a long time but have rediscovered how AWESOME they are! :)  I really like to pop pictures off of the page for more affect....I used the new True Stories kit--word has it that there is only ONE kit left!  So if you have been thinking about it--jump on it--it's a GREAT kit and what is cool is that the add on ships for free!
If you feel like playing a long with the sketch the details are HERE.
my saturday started out EARLY dropping my middle guy off to go water skiing then at around 8am soccer practice--DANG it was HOT!  I felt bad for my girl she was really struggling...she didn't get enough to drink yesterday.  I REMEMBER those days of running sweating and feeling like you are generally going to DIE.  But it was AWESOME when the game or meet came around--SO worth all the pain.  yes, I'm a bit Psycho, Crazy & a Freak--oh wait, those are my kids nicknames!  I guess they are like me after all! :) (FYI it's supposed to be 113, it was higher this week...YUCK!)
have a FABULOUS Saturday--thanks for the visit today!

LOVE your take on the sketch, especially your addition of the big star! Can NOT believe there was soccer this week. Poor thing! I am gearing up to endure this for the rest of the month. But I can not imagine having to run around in it. Even our pool temp is almost up to 94! lol!

Love what you did with the Cameo on this layout. The big star is a really cool touch. Soccer in this heat? Yuck!

Really great take on the sketch, Diana! I love how you've added the shapes where the original has squares - like the star, perfect spot for that. Love the title work too!
