Family in Paradise

As some of you know I recently got back from a family trip to Pacific Grove and Monterey!
We had a wonderful time and had an opportunity to grab a photo of (almost) all of us together.
My two daughters had to leave a day earlier so unfortunately they missed this photo op :(.

I am entering this layout in two challenges, Stuck on Sketches and Celebrate The Occasion



For Stuck On Sketches you were to use this sketch:

And for Celebrate The Occasion the theme this week is "Celebrating Summer (must have a sun)"!!!!

Supplies used: patterned paper - Boogy Board, Hang Ten, Boardwalk and Strips in Beach Bum by Fancy Pants, Snorkel by Cosmo Cricket and Scattered Clouds in 72 & Sunny by We R Memory Keepers; chipboard alphabet - my stash; Pop Dots

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!
