Boy it is hot here in Reno today! We took my grandson to see Cars 2 and enjoyed he air conditioning in the movie theater. He loved it!! He has been addicted to the first Cars movie so we knew it would be a given that he liked this one. Have to say it was pretty cute!

Today I have a layout that I made for my album of our Monterey trip. I was hoping to enter it into the challenge at Twisted Sketches but all day yesterday and so far today I have been unable to get to their website.

For the challenge you were to use the sketch provided and the twist this week was "water".

I added some shells and things that I collected at the beach.

I made these rosettes with my Tim Holtz Sizzix die (thanks Mom for the Big Shot machine).

Supplies used: cardstock - light grey; patterned paper - Seashells and Palm Fronds from Just Beachy by TPC Studio; font - Bathing Cap; chipboard letters - Licorice by Cosmo Cricket; journaling sticker - Cherry Hill by October Afternoon; paper rosettes die - Tim Holtz Alterations by Sizzix; Glubers - Cosmo Cricket; Pop Dots; shells and findings from the beach.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone!!!
