Fun in the Kiddie Pool

Not me silly :) My kids when they were little. This little blue pool provided hours of entertainment! Sometimes they would dress up to go in the pool and sometimes it was a nakey day. I've been forbidden to use nakey photos :}}

My layout was inspired by this weeks sketch  http://www.sketchythursdays.blogspot.com/

The colors of this Bo Bunny paper were perfect for the saturated look of my pics. I don't know what I would do without my Cricut! The palm is from Doodlecharms, waves from Going Places and the bucket from Boys Will Be Boys.

Layered the bucket with shadow and added the gem & bitty tag with the date.

Layered the letter stickers on a Jillibean Soup journaling spot.

A doodling mood came over me and the palm gained some stitches and crosshatching :)

Along with a few glittery coconuts.
Thank you Sketchy Thursdays for so much inspiration!

The soccer tournament was a lot of fun and the girls won 2nd place! There were only 3 teams in their division but the girls really had to work for that trophy! They played 4 games over an 8 hour span in 100 degree weather. I thought i was going to melt!!! I didn't know that being a "soccer mom" was so much work! Here is a quick run down of the day:

Find spot under tree & set up camp, sweat.
Run out onto field with camera, umbrella, water, misters, & chairs,sweat.
play game, try to keep girls cool & well hydrated, sweat.
run off field to camp, sweat some more
repeat 3 more times!

Managed to take approx. 300 pics while all this was going on 8) It was a long, stinky ride home. Good thing the waiter at Applebees seated us away from the other diners :}
