First Scrap and Stamp Challenge

So today is the first challenge ever over at Scrap and Stamp.  The challenge was two-fold.  First, you must use a sketch designed by yours truly.  

I have posted this one before on my blog.  
Secondly, it should have a Summer theme.  
Oh...and of course, it must include stamping.  :)  

So, this is the layout I made for the challenge:

Journaling reads:
"Summer break = All Play All Day to the boys, but long can you guys go up and down the road over and over again driving, or pushing, a toy?  Over and over and over..."

Confession time.  I love making sketches.  Don't particularly love using them though.  :)  And I am not completely happy with this layout of mine.  But that is ok, right!  

I do hope you play along with us!!!  The sponsor for this week is Limelight Papercrafts.  See the fabulous prize package on the Scrap and Stamp blog.  

Have a great Saturday!

My Supplies:

Paper--Lily Bee Designs, Stamps--Prima (Stamp like--at top and the journaling border at bottom) and Hero Arts (Tree and birds), Ink--Stampin' Up! (Chocolate Chip, and various markers), Letter Stickers--Jenni Bowlin, Candy Dots (on tree and three at top)--Pebbles, Thread--DMC, 3D Paint--Scribbles.

I love your layout and I can hope to get sketchitis some day and be able to create from the ground up but until then I have wonderfully sketchy friends to help me!! YOU ROCK! And I love the journalling - when I first started to read it I thought they were asking how much longer is summer break - LOL that's what mine ask. Just so they can go up and down and back and forth a million times!! Great job!
