I don't think I have EVER been so happy for a Friday to roll around. It has been an especially trying week with my wonderful, easy going 16yr old son (can you hear the SARCASM dripping in my voice?!) He actually has been a stubborn, bull headed, slug who is very close to not graduating on time next year. Can anyone say summer school?! Oh yeah, he's going there! So needless to say between all the arguments with him & the calls to the teachers & looking up study guides online, I've not had any time to craft, which just adds to the bad mood. And the cold dreary rainy (and snowy-yes we had snow on Saturday! The big, wet fluffy flakes you would want to see in December) week we had here in the Pacific Northwest didn't help any. So I sent the angel to bed early last night & had a little "ME" time at the craft desk. Good thing too because I still have a few Father's Day cards to pump out so I really needed to git r done lol!

Back ground DP is Flair Designs, image is Lounging Miles (colored w/ pencils) from Kraftin Kimmies, the sentiment is a sticker from who knows where-I think it was a freebie from a mailed solicitation. I used chalk ink & worked in a few clouds for the sky & also on the kraft "sand".  I fussy cut the bottom edges of the image w/ a craft knife so that I could slip the torn cardstock sand piece underneath. The sea shell button were some I've had forever in my drawer
 I must have been dreaming of getting away! Wish I were hangin w/ Miles, soaking up the rays, no stress, a fruity drink in my hand & good tunes on the radio.

The over all design was inspired by this week's sketch #220 at CPS.
I am also entering on the following challenges:
Going Grey with Scrap Creations, Color challenge, Blue, yellow & green
Fab N Funky, What Eva! Also a call for DT & GDT- I am going to apply for Gdt
Simon Says Stamp, Father's Day/Masculine
Card Makin Mamas, use your Scraps- all the card stock mats & the kraft sand were from my scrap pile
Meljen's, Coastal Fun
Crazy 4 Challenges, Vacation Spot/ Activity
My Grafico, where the challenge is always Anything Goes
So here is to a sunny, nice weekend! I must work tomorrow, but only for 4 hours & then have a graduation BBQ to go to for my nephew. Will be very nice to enjoy some warmth for a change!
