A slice of summer

What a great (and painful) weekend!

My oldest dd and I went for an early morning bike ride yesterday. Then my youngest dd and I went horseback riding. Then I picked my little guy and we all tried to go strawberry picking...but we were rained out. So we had to settle for puddle jumping. We got home and I found out the hard way that my little guy tried to clean my floors with down I went...twice...on my already sore behind! I'm trying to do laundry, but every bone and muscle is screaming at me to go back to bed! So I just decided to sit here and scrap all day....

The Paper Variety challenged us to use fruit on this week's project. I had these adorable pictures of my youngest dd in her cute little watermelon dress. I used this week's sketch from Frosted Designs to get started on this fun summer page. :)

I cut the circle out of green paper and inked up the edges. The background is pink and I stamped it with a darker pink to simulate watermelon seeds. I just didn't want to use black or brown. The doily was inked with the same darker pink. All the stickers are from We R Memory Keepers. I bought them a while ago and thought they were so much fun. I added pop dots to all of them.

Is it wrong that I really want to set up a lemonade stand for my little ones...if only for a photo op?? Okay...maybe i won't put them through that....maybe....
