Happy Summer to all whom are celebrating the Summer season! Do you have a family vacation planned or anything else fun? Speaking of summer, I have a layout to share featuring a photo of Scott and Connor that was taken while we were on a summer vacation several years ago.
I combined a couple colors of  ColourArte Radiant Rain to the background and embellished with a fun Gina's Designs Mixed Media Fragments: Retro  chipboard piece:
The boys went on a day diving excursion together off the shores of Maui. Since Meredith had no interest in diving, I had to sit the day of diving out. Bummed I didn't get to hold a sea urchin in the wild but maybe I'll have that opportunity this summer :)
I added lots of texture and design to the background using the Prima Netting stencil along with Prima Modeling Paste and ColourArte Radiant Rain Solar Gold and Blue Ice
For the title, I used a Prima Junkyard Findings Vintage Trinkets Typo Bulb:
and embellished with a variety of flowers and seashells from my stash:

I played along with the following challenges:
the Frilly and Funkie challenge where the theme is "It's Summer",
The Artistic Stamper June challenge where the theme is "Summer is on it's Way", (I used a PaperArtsy rubber stamp along with white acrylic paint for some background stamping), 
the Scraps N Pieces Challenge where the theme is "Real Friends":
 as well as the inspiring Scraps N Pieces Challenge sketch: 

Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great day/evening!
Be Sweet ;)
