Happy Independence Day!!!

Happy Independence Day everyone!  Any big plans?  Sounds like we're going to a barbecue pool party, can't wait because its's still early and really hot already!  I have a couple new layouts to post.  This first layout is inspired by a Sketchy Thursdays sketch from oh probably 3 weeks back.  I started the layout then but just didn't have the time to finish it.
The paper is Websters Pages, the flowers are Petaloo and from Diana's Etsy Shop, the boy with the wagon image is October Afternoon and the orange felt frame is by Ruby Rock-It.

This next layout is based on a fabulous sketch by Anne Pennington, who is also on the DT at Scrapbookers Anonymous.  The sketch is for Little Shop of Sketches.
The entire title is difficult to read but it says, "Mom, It's too bright"  I love these pictures of the kids.  Recently they were all dressed up and I wanted to snap a few pictures, well I made them go outside and all they did was complain about how bright it was, even when we moved so the sun wasn't in their eyes.  They just were not in the mood for a photo shoot and the pictures show it.  I also love the sweet (looking) little Marin has a water gun in each hand :).  The patterernd paper is My Minds Eye, Ooh La La.  Embellishments are Sassafrass, Basic Grey and a ki puffie.  The little banner is made from a Lawn Fawn stamp.

Don't forget there's a new challenge up at Scrapbookers Anonymous!  It's time to dig into your stash and create with your hard to use color!  Come play along!!!
