RCS. The challenge for this bi-weekly theme is the Tom Cruise movie "Born on the Fourth of July." In other words, create a project featuring the Fourth of July. I loved this picture of my daughter when she was two sporting her patriotic dress. I thought it fit the bill perfectly, especially when I found this paper in my stash!

This is my latest creation for SID. I realized as I made this double page layout, it's a good thing I'm not a chronological scrapbooker....I am definitely inspired by the season at hand. I have had this fish paper in my summer stash of paper since my local scrap store closed two years ago. I've been waiting for the perfect layout to use it. Then I took these pictures of my daughters, niece, nephew, and my parents the other night when they came over to swim when it was hotter than Hades. And I thought, "Fish paper!" The sketch, although calling for a slightly different arrangement of pictures, I adapted to fit my needs. Otherwise, the paper placement follows the sketch to a "T." I really liked the sketch because it allows for the use of a variety of papers, and being the paper addict that I am, I thoroughly enjoyed working with it!

Child's Play Challenge. We are doing a crossover event for this bi-weekly challenge with Scrap our Stash which this layout is based on as well. The "child" inspiration for this challenge was tie-dye. I was rummaging through my stack of pictures, and though the tie-dye bathing suit my daughter was wearing fit the bill!

Red Carpet Studio Challenge. This bi-weekly challenge was inspired by the 80's classic "National Lampoon's Vacation." That movie is one of my favorites of all time! I think we all have had a Clark Griswold moment on a vacation....And in honor of his trip to Walley World, I decided to use a picture of my trip to Disney World! My girls were huge Toy Story fans. Who am I kidding, so was (and still am) I! So we definitely had to take advantage of this photo-op of Buzz & Woody! And other than a freak cold snap in Florida when we went, it was the only "Griswold" like event that we had while we were visiting Disney World. (That and the landing gear going out on the plane....) Never a dull moment when vacationing!
