Sketchy Thursday!

Wow, is this week moving fast or what?  I blinked and it is Thursday already.  I have been so busy.  I know I keep saying this but wow.  I really need to slow down.  I have been making things for my lss displays.  I worked on 2 Basic Grey card kits and I have a mini album to create now.  I had fun though cropping with the girls on Tuesday.  Plus I have to get kitting for my class on Saturday.  I have a sketch layout class.  I am taking a month off from teaching next month.  I am really happy about that.  I want to enjoy my last 3 weeks of summer before I head back to work.  I have some great ideas for a class in September so we shall see.

When I say this wonderful sketch from Sketchy Thursdays I knew I had to play along with it.  I LOVED this sketch and it was perfect for my pictures.  Here is the sketch:

And you Also had to  include:
• A summer topic
• The colors red, orange and/or yellow
• A journaling spot

Well Here is my take:

I used my July kit from Burlap and Buttercups to create this layout.  I just love their kits.  My boys had such a great time decorating our yard for our 4th family cookout.  So much fun!  I was able to incorporate all of the requirements. 

Well I hope everyone has a great day.  I will be back with another layout.  (It feels good to post some layouts-hehehehe).  Thanks so much for stopping by and I will see ya tomorrow!

Oh your layout is so cute.
Looks like they had a fun time :)

I understand the "too much to do". I feel like I am running around in circles. But I am having fun doing the fun stuff though ;)
