Hello Summer!

Good Morning everyone and welcome Thursday!  I can't believe that it is September 7th already.

Today I am sharing a layout I made for Challenge YOUrself.

This month is a sketch challenge and they want you to use this PageMaps sketch:

Here is my take:

With some close-ups:

I enjoyed using a photo from my family's summer vacation in Atlantic City!  We thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Sands Hotel although we don't gamble!  The beach access is so close and the boardwalk was amazing and fun.  It totally brought back memories of my childhood!

I also used a paper collection from Close to My Heart entitled "Summer Calypso":
And the PageMaps sketch was so fun to follow!

I encourage you to check out this month's awesome sketch challenge at Challenge YOUrself!
