The Summer of Color 5 is here!

Hi everyone . . . I cannot believe that it is time for the Summer of Color again!  I am so happy that Kristen is hosting another amazing Summer of Color blog party for us.  Welcome Summer of Color 5!


If you haven't heard about The Summer of Color 5, please check out Kristen's blog here.  
She even provided us with a worksheet for this week's colors which are blue + blue + green.

Here's mine:


I used the sketch from the current challenge (#140) at Sketchabilities :


Isn't it awesome?  I love their sketches!!!
And here's my finished scrapbook page using the above sketch and the Summer of Color's color scheme for week 1:



with some different views:



And I would like to end with some recent photos that I took of Anne with the one that I used of her here on my page:





Love this smile:

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today!  Thank you, Summer of Color and Sketchabilites for your wonderful inspiration!

Have a GREAT week.  I love each and every one of you!  HUGS!

  22. I really wanted to get here sooner, but life got in the way today. Anne sure has grown since I last saw her. Such a beauty.

    Speaking of beauties, the scrapbook layout is a gem. I especially like the heart in the center of the flower and the sewing of the rick rack. Of course, the photo was stunning, too. What a fantastic way to start SOC this year.

  31. Hello Sharon!! So glad your playing along with SOC again this year. Your layout is pretty, the picture is lovely as the other ones too. You are lucky that Anne is so good about posing for you.
    Thank you for your blog visits, YES, we did watch the last Middle and it was funny with Sue. I cried a little at the end about her yearbook of signatures, that was so sweet. We are so happy to have Kristin home with us again, she's had an amazing year and will be sharing it with us at church tomorrow. Renee is happy to be done with school and excited for college. Our summer break has started and going well, a little slow for them but I'm enjoying it.

    I read your post below, so sweet to see you and the family talking that walk again. I remember it from last year. I know your sister is smiling down and happy to see her wonderful family remembering her this way. You have a great family Sharon, so blessed. Hope your mom is doing well still and your enjoying summer with her. My dad is going in later this month for a pacemaker, he hasn't fully recovered from the heart attack last summer, tires out too easy he says. Hoping this will help and give him a little more energy to feel better.

    Take care dear friend, hugs for you and your family. thanks again for your wonderful visits.
