Running Through The Sprinkler!

The pictures in today layout are from last summer. My son, his wife and hubby decided they wanted to go golfing for the day and asked me if I would look after the kids for the day. I checked the weather the night before and saw it was going to be a beautiful day so of course I said no problem. I packed up a picnic lunch and when the kids arrived we went off to the park. Well that lasted about four hours before the little ones had to go to the bathroom, so off we went back to grandmas house. It was so hot that I decided to put the sprinkler on and let the kids run through it, they had a blast! The day just flew bye and once again many more fond memories for me to put on to paper to cherish for a lifetime.
I found this cool challenge over at Welch Creations to make a project with a scenic background, plus I couldn't forget the challenge over at GettingScrappy this weeks challenge is called colour me green! This is a layout challenge and you must use the colour green somewhere on your page. I then decided to follow a sketch by Bev Code for Lets Get Sketchy. Wow! 3 challenges with one page...Not Bad! LOL!
This is a picture of the sketch I followed and here is my take of the sketch.
I love the way this turned out!
Here is a list of the cartridges used for this layout.
Cindy Lou- Tree
H20- Title and sprinkler
A Garden of Words- Fence and grass
Cricut Classic Font- Sun
Everyday Paper Dolls- cloud
I used tons of pop ups to give dimension to the different cuts.
The ribbon was from my stash, I bet it has been hanging around for at least five years, but it fit right in with the theme of the layout.

As always my crafty friends, thanks for stopping bye and leaving me some love your comments are what keep me inspired to continue to keep on doing what I love best.
