First Taste of Summer - Sketchabilities #52



Good morning! Today is the reveal for sketch #52 at Sketchabilities! I really enjoyed working with this sketch because I almost always use 3 photos on my pages. Plus love all the opportunities for layering! These photos are from our first beach trip at the start of the hot season - that trip is always the thing that signifies that summer is really here to stay! (Not that I am a big summer girl, much too hot and humid around here for my taste, but the kids do enjoy it.) The twins are really taking to the water - learning to dunk their heads, going in up to their chests and practicing kicking their arms and legs. I am certain they will be swimming on their own by the time next summer rolls around.

For this page, I used up the rest of my July Lucky Girl Crafts kit, Beach Babes with lots of fun, summer colors and releases from Echo Park and Bo Bunny. Also added a few Prima jewels to represent the waves - love those jewels, but am never quite sure how to use them.


Hope you'll take a moment to play along with the sketch and link it up right here!
