MMM Smell the Salt Air?

I live thirty minutes from the Gulf Coast but the only Salt Air I am enjoying right now is Cosmo Cricket's found in Apron Strings Bigger Than a Breadbox kit! For my first layout I scrapped just a few of the Disney pictures - only about 800 more to go! I used a sketch from Sketchy Thursdays to inspire my layout. I say inspire because instead of banners I used splashes and instead of two pictures I used three but the spirit of the sketch is still there!
7.7 sketch challenge
 Under the Sea with Crush
 
 Saltiness is good thing - potato chips, margaritas, layouts ...
The next layout I made from the Apron Strings Bigger Than a Breadbox kit is some fun pictures of Amory at her end of school water day. I just love progression shots and wanted to line them up side by side. The middle shot is my favorite! I used a Pagemaps sketch for this layout - once again I added a few things and took away a few things so it was more of an inspiration! I also completed Workout #47 at Scrapfit to create a layout with a good amount of yellow to represent ‘summer’ and put a clock on this layout to represent ‘time’. The clock is tucked under the cluster of embellies at the bottom. 
 Splash Down to Summer
With the leftovers I created a thank you card for my friend (Christian - turn away, you can see it tommorow when it arrives at your house!). The mermaids were so cute and I wanted to make sure they were shown off! I used the sentiment "You Maid Our Day" for a little play on words.I used a sketch from Crop Stop that I turned on its side where I won Cream of the Crop last week!
You "Maid" Our Day!
Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed day,
