Stash Sketch

It was my time to share a sketch at  Your Scrapbook Stash :)  As with the last sketch that I created, I scrapped my layout then I did the sketch...I know, I know...I did it a little backwards!
  I don't have any fancy software on my dino-of-a-computer, so I wing it with probably the oldest version of Picture It known to man;  it gets the job done though.
 My Sample "Just Add Water and Fins"
 
Your Scrapbook Stash Supplies:
Echo Park "Splash" patterned papers, sticker letters and accents
Velvet Trim
Misc Supplies:
Brads
Pop Dots
The two strips of paper outlined in ribbon are actually popped up with foam dots...looks much more interesting in person.  Plus, I accidentally deleted the original picture from my computer so I couldn't make any adjustments...sorry that it's blurry.  
I love these two pictures of my brother and nephew taken last Father's Day.  My brother is such a dork, but he owns it (much like I do) so it works LOL  Self-deprecation makes life easier to get through...if you can't laugh at yourself, then you have no business laughing at anyone else ;)
A side note: we had a fabulous turn-out for our Meet-The-Bears Night last night.  We went from 100º weather to low 80's after a little cool front blew threw...it was grand even though short-lived (right back at it today). The volleyball girls, cheerleaders, band, majorettes and JV/Varsity football players were all announced.  After a little 'scrimmage', cheerleading and band playing, the kids enjoyed watermelon and a homemade slip-n-slide :)  I can't believe that we're about to start a brand new school year!  I will have a Senior, 8th grader and 4th grader.  Football on Thursday nights, Friday nights and of course college Saturdays and Pro Sundays...oh and Monday night...ahhhhh! 
Next week at this time....I'll be the BIG 4-0.  I haven't given it much thought actually.  I'm just hoping that it doesn't 'strike' me all at once and I fall apart hehehe!  Some good friends are cooking for me tomorrow night...fillet Mignon, twice-baked potato casserole and white chocolate strawberry cake...how lucky am I?  :)
Enjoy the weekend, everyone!
