Catching up

I have no idea what I was thinking!  I kept putting off challenges thinking I had plenty of time before the end of June.  I honestly didn't realize that the end is only 3 days away!  So now it's crunch time if I want to play along with a few challenges.
My goal today is to finish up a few pages for The Scrappiest June Sketch Challenge.
First up is sketch #70:
Solid cardstock for the background
The center piece is patterned paper from Reminisce - Cocktails and Dreams
The pink photo mats were from scraps from Lasting Impressions.  
Prima flowers - love the sparkle on these!
The pineapple embellie is from Michaels.  It was a pre-painted wooden piece that I thought was so cool!  I bought it at the end of last summer for about 4 cents!
Thickers fabric letters for the title that I colored with Tombow markers and tried to ink up a bit with gold to make them sparkle.  I had originally sprayed them with Glimmer Mist but it didn't show up so well.
And there are some miscellaneous ribbons added also
This layout qualifies for The Scrappiest -  sketch #70
Practical Scrappers - flower challenge
Frosted Designs - color challenge

So now the sky is very dark, the thunder is rolling, the raining is coming down in buckets.  I think our plans for the day are going to be cancelled.  Therefore, I don't feel so bad about putting off all these challenges.  Looks like I'll have allll day to work on them.  :(
