Just playing around

It is ridiculously hot and humid, and I'm just glad to have been spared this kind of weather thus far! It's been such a great summer weather-wise, I haven't been able to get into the craft room. The kids don't want to be cooped up on the nice days, and I just have to oblige them. I guess living in New England does this to you. You get so many months of wet, cold, snowy, crappy weather, when the good stuff comes around, you can't pass up an opportunity to get out and enjoy it. This thick humidity keeps all of us inside where there is ice cold AC, and I get the chance to create :)

Finally, I have a layout to share. I did make more things today, but they are super-secret DT assignments :) You'll get the chance to see them, but not today. I made this for Sassy Lil' Sketches current sketch challenge as I just love their sketches so much.

Here's the sketch:

And here's my take:
BG Periphery background paper, Oliver for paper pieces, Capella alpha for the first part of the title, and paper ribbon. Thickers Umbrella puffy alpha stickers in Cricket. MM Looking Glass GiggleKid boy epoxy sticker. Imaginisce banner ribbon. Patina Stickles used on a random ribbon scrap. Scenic Route grid background paper for the journaling strips

Rolled the edges of the scalloped piece for some dimension.

That's all for now. Off to put Patryk to bed...he's just hurt his head on the foundation of our house, so it's time for bed after a bit of ibuprofen and an ice pack. Boys...he's lucky he didn't need stitches!!!
