Lily Bee Sketch Challenge #8

So, I want some ideas from YOU (who ever is reading this!) about what you would like to see/hear on my blog.  Sometimes I feel like I "talk" too much and other times I wonder if it is not quite enough.  I don't know if you just come for the pictures (which is FINE!), to hear what I have been up to, or just come and visit in your regular blog rounds.  This is you chance to tell me what you want to see....why do I think I am going to get like ONE response to my question?!  Hee hee.....

I went and cropped last night for the first time since January and we had so much fun.  There were five of us, but as loud as we were you would think there were more...wait Siri was there on three peoples phones!  

I got two layouts done and here is one of them (can't show the other one yet!) and it's for the LilyBee sketch challenge that ends tomorrow.  I was cutting it close to get it done!

Supplies: Pattern Paper-LilyBee (Double Dutch); Journaling Tag-LilyBee (Double Dutch); Letters-American Crafts Thickers; Flair Button-{a flair for buttons} (Etsy); Pen-Zig; Adhesives-Scotch ATG and Scrapbook Adhesives

I have had these pictures since about the time I started scrapbooking!  So they have been printed about three years and have been carried around waiting for me to use them.  I thought the Double Dutch collection had a fun summer vibe to it and would look great with them.  Here are a few more closeups.

I have bought a TON of these little flair buttons from {a flair for buttons} Etsy shop.  They are so cute and I have to "stay" away, because I know she has more fun designs out now and I need to use these more!  And I tried every angle to get the glare out, but it was the time of day I was taking the picture I think.  

Well, I think I am going to hit the bed early tonight.  Late night of cropping this girl isn't used to anymore!  Have a fun Monday.
