You are My Sunshine Layout for My Craft Spot Challenge!

Time for another fun challenge over at My Craft Spot! This weeks challenge is to create a project showing us some Sunny Days ( anything that reminds you of summer). I decided to use the sketch from this weeks challenge at The Paper Variety. I love using sketches when I am having scrapbookers block!

I used KC & Company paper and a few odds and ends from my scrap bucket. I used my H20 Cricut cartridge for the pool and sea horse.

This adorable little girl is a SVG file that I purchased from Precious Piecings. When I saw this little girl I just had to have it, it looks so much like my sweet grand daughter Jasmine! Then I decided to add a button that was shaped like a popsicle to her cute little hand.

This picture is of my three beautiful grand daughters and they are not only sisters, but very best friends. So I used a rub on and a little clipboard piece I had tucked away in my stash to make the Girlfriends title.

The stamp in the middle of the sun, which reads
"You are my sunshine" is from My Craft Spot inside and out Sentiments Stamp Set, and
the sun was cut from my Life is a Beach Cricut Cartridge.

Finishing touches on the layout were glitter gel pen, ink around all the edges, some Stickles which I added to the sun and a bit of embossing.

I am also going to enter this layout over at Getting Cricky with K.C. Andrew Simply Sunday challenge: Summer Fun!

and also FCCB Challenge Me Monday #67: Pool Time

So now it is your turn to show us your wonderful Sunny Days projects and have a chance to win some yummy candy over at My Craft Spot.

OMG Jenny! As soon as I saw the little girl, I thought the same thing - she reminds me so much of Jasmine! I think I need to borrow your H2O cartridge for the seahorse (that is if I ever finish up with the other ones I borrowed!!) As usual - great job! Love big sis xxx
