Sunny Days - Sketch N Scrap #227

 Hello, hello! Happy Tuesday to you! I hope your week is off to a good start. I can't believe that it is already the middle of June! Time flies when you're having fun has never been truer!

Since it is the middle of the month that means that Sketch N Scrap has a new sketch for us to play with. This fun sketch is courtesy of Sketch Artist Lisa and I had so much fun creating with it:

And here is my layout:

I am in love with Simple Stories' - Sunkissed - collection. It is taking everything in me to not order another round of the papers, but I didn't even have enough room in my Simple Stories bin to hold this collection, so I thought I had better put it to use! I will see how many layouts I can get done with this collection and if I'm still in love with it and wanting more, then I will see about getting more.

Now, about the layout. We had a really cool and rainy spring - almost to the point of being depressing! It felt like most of May was rainy and in the 50's and 60's - way too cool for this time of year around here. We did not even get started on getting the pool up and going until Memorial Day weekend and then the water was way too cold to get in.  Finally, on June 4th, Scott, Shane, and Ada all decided to brave the cold water and get in. The water was 73 degrees - way too cold for me! They sure didn't let it bother them - they were just happy that it was sunny enough and warm enough to finally get in! Since then the weather has turned off hot and humid and the mid-80-degree water is perfect for me to get into, too!

These photos are from the first time that Ada and Shane got in. As you can see, the cool water temperature didn't bother them a bit!

Here are a couple of close-ups:

I just love this little cluster of summertime essentials! This cluster has them all. 

I added just a bit of journaling on a label - not many details needed - just that this was the first swim of the summer. There are lots more photos that will have more details with them.

Be sure to stop by Sketch N Scrap to see the wonderful layouts from the rest of the design team. I hope you have a chance to play along with us!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today. Have a great day!
