Soar . . . Sketchy Thursdays Sketch 7.8 and July Paper Poppy Kit Co., A Ticket To Ride

Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend.  We got some much needed rain this morning!  We've had quite a dry spell here in Maryland and every little drop of rain is welcome!  I just finished up this layout tonight.  
This photo was taken back in the summer of 2003 at Hershey Park, PA.  Sadly, this was the last family vacation we took together before my marriage ended. Some where up there in the picture is my daughter and her dad.   I based my layout on the current sketch over at Sketchy Thursdays, Sketch 7.8.
The ever so wonderful and colorful papers and embellishments are from my July Paper Poppy Kit, A Ticket To Ride. With the exception of a few pieces from my stash, all of the rest is from the kit.  
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the weekend!

I'm loving the colors on this one! And your balloons -- doggone cute! Love it. And I sure hope it didn't make you sad to make this layout. I can't imagine how tough the divorce has been, but I'm glad you can scrap the good memories!
