Summertime Fun - Artful Delight and Frosted Designs Challenges

I think the beautiful weather we have been having has inspired me to work on some summer layouts!  We've had a mixture of clouds, rain, but the last few days have been full of lots of sunshine!  I'll take the sunshine any day, even though the rain is good for my flowers!
Don't you just love the bright fun colors in this layout!!!!
This picture of my son was taken back in 1989.  We were on our annual beach vacation in New Jersey and had stopped off for some ice cream. I used my May kit from Artful Delight for this layout along with Artful Delight's sketch ASC #8.
I decided to get adventurous again and use my sewing machine on this layout.  What a pain it was.  The thread kept breaking on me, but I'm pleased with the finished look.
Here are a few closeups:
 This layout also is for the current Fabulous Friday Challenge over at
Frosted Designs - BBQ/Picnic/Outdoors. 
Please make sure you stop by to see what our talented DT has created and join in the fun.

Speaking of Artful Delight, I got my June kit in the mail the other day, and all I can say is it is beautiful!
It's full of Fancy Pants, Crate Paper and Lily Bee!  You can check out the contents of the kit here.
I'm busy working on my projects for June and can't wait to share them with you.
Thanks for stopping by!
