Kite Day

One day in the fall at the lake the kids decided they wanted to fly kites. They drove a half an hour to the nearest town and came home with three really cute kites. It was the perfect windy day. They were running back and forth to the lake trying to get their kites in the air. It was a really nice day that we spent together. It reminded me of when they were little and we would go out in the field and play. It`s nice to see that even in your twenties you can be a kid again. Now.... how this layout came about.

On my last trip to Urban Scrapbook, I was yet again challenged to use a collection I have never used before. Pat gave me the added challenge of working with vellum. Well...I combined the sketch at Stuck On U Sketches with this fun paper and this is what I came up with. Vellum flowers are just too much fun to make!! Thanks for the challenge Pat!! 

Thanks so much for stopping by. I love reading your comments and I appreciate your scrappy support! Have a wonderfully happy scrappy day! Lynn
