Summer Fun

I had a bit of time to craft before getting ready for our company tonight so I went down to play.  When I saw the sketch this week from Retro Sketches I immediately thought of a sun so that is what I did.  I used the Jillibean Soup Watermelon Gazpacho papers and stickers along with some new Soup Staples.  I also used a sentiment from SRM Stickers.


As you can see I flipped the sketch then I swayed from it just a tad ;)  but it is where my inspiration came from, hehehe.

Now to start getting some of the dinner ready.  We are going to have a house full.  Just curious what you do. Most of the house will be kids;  my mom and dad, my brother and his three kids, my family and my daughter's boyfriend will all be here.  I haven't cleaned my house this week yet... me I always do it after the house full so that it lasts a bit ;)  just some tidying is all I am going to do.  How many of you would scramble to try and clean it today?

Sweet card. I would have to do a mad dash to clean up before, I tend to let the after wait to get done but not the before. I worry too much about being judged lol.
