Sketches in Thyme Blog Hop

Hello friends!
Welcome to the Sketches In Thyme blog hop!
We hope you enjoy the grand re-opening of this sketch blog.
And I am super excited to be a part of this creative team!!
We have two great sketch designers on our team, 
Bev Code and Rochelle Spears.

Our sketch for this Blog Hop, was designed by Bev.  And here it is:

And to give you some inspiration, here is my take on Bev's fabulous sketch:
(One of our many trips this summer was for our entire family to take 
a trip to Hawaii to celebrate my parents 50th.
I am currently working on an album from that trip.
And this was a great sketch to use becuase I was able to
put alot of photo's on one page. 
 And boy, do I have a lot of photo from this trip!
One of days on the Big Island was spent ATV'ing,
and we ended up at this swimming hole that was called, 
"The Never Ending Waterfall".  These are photo's of my daughter Sarah, 
and her cousins swimming in the hole!!

Now it's your turn!

Paradise! (Sketches 4 All)

Hi friends,  

I'm hoping to get a lot of scrapping in this week,
as Sarah is up in Maine with my parents,
and I seem to have more free time! Yay  me!!
I poped over to Sketches 4 All to see the sketch for August,
and this is what I found:

Had the perfect photo to work with the sketch!  
And loved the layout I came up with!!!

So this is page 3 of our Hawaiian scrapbook!  
Am hoping to get more pages done in the next few days.
I'm off on Thursday to visit my college roomates for a suprise 50th 
birthday party for one special friend, and then on Sunday I head to the beach 
with my family.  One last hurrah before 8th Grade starts for Sarah!
Have a great week everyone!

I have to really apologize for not being more active!
Whoever said there was more time to scrap in the Summer was sooo wrong!!
I feel awful that I haven't posted anything in two weeks, but not to fear,I finally got into my craft room last night.  So what have I been doing since I last posted? Well, I ask that question all the time!!! But it looks like we made a quick trip to the beach, Sarah has been in 4 different horse shows, and we've been moving along with our renovations, interviewing builders, and I have been at Meals on Wheels full time being a sub for some of the managers that have been taking vacation time!  I am hoping to spend more time in my room in the days to come.  But there is another round of vacations happening at Meals, and Fair is next week for my 4-H'er, so we'll have to plan accordingly! Here's what I was able to do last night!  This was a photo from Spring Break this year...Hope everyone has a great week!
