Live in the sunshine... 43

Hi there! Summertime is in full swing here in my household. Connor and Meri have a variety of summer camps scheduled and we have a few fun vacations planned with them :) They are on a "year round" school calendar so summer vacation is only lasts for 8 weeks so the time seems to fly by! Speaking of summertime, I'm here today hoppin' along with the Mixed Up Media Chix / Art Journal Girlz and the theme happens to be "Summertime".
I made this page in the smaller of my two art journals (approx 5" x 7") for today's hop:
After painting the background with a variety of acrylic paints, I stamped a sentiment from MFT Inspired by the Beach
as well as the pretty palm trees and hammock image (also from MFT Inspired by the Beach). I randomly stamped the checkerboard image from MPD Distressed Background Blocks and finished it with stenciled dots using MPD Graduated Dots stencil along with white acrylic paint.
Below is a photo of Scott that I took on Wednesday while we were chillaxin' on Coronado Beach, California :) 
Thanks so much for visiting! For some awesome inspiration, please be sure to visit the other Mixed Up Media Chix who are participating in today's hop:

Be Sweet ;)
