Backyard Blast ~ Day 2

Today is Day2 of the Backyard Blast Blog Hop at Our theme this month....think backyard gardens and BBQs, pool parties, picnics, camping, trees ....anything outdoors and summery!

Design team member Christine has provided us with this fun sketch, and we're using it for our inspiration this month.~This month we are challenging each of YOU to come up with a card or layout using Christine's sketch. For cards you may omit the journalling, or not! For either a card or layout you may substitute another large object for the butterfly...just show us your stuff!

~You'll need to upload your sketch project to our gallery here and use keyword BLOGHOP1 so we are sure to find your creation. ...and you'll want us to, because there is an awesome prize package on the line here! When you upload your image, you'll want to select the July Blog Hop Gallery from the drop down.

~Please post your entry in this thread with a link to your gallery image (you'll need to register for the forum, it's free!), and that's all there is to it! The Design Team will vote for a winner in 10 days, so you'll have plenty of time to get your project finished. One lucky winner will receive a complete collection of papers from the American Crafts Backyard collection (24 sheets) and some fun extra stuff too!

Here is my take on the sketch! It was perfect to scrap some pool photos of my munchkins. These items can be found in the store:
~American Crafts White Textured Cardstock
~American Crafts Chomp (watermelons under buttons)
~American Crafts Ribbit (green designer paper/brown solid paper)

~American Crafts Beep Beep (gold solid paper)
~American Crafts Drip (blue solid paper)
~American Crafts Thickers - Sprinkles

~May Arts 1/2 inch Ric Rac
~Maya Road Sheer Flourishes

~BasicGrey Buttons

There are two more stops on the hop today......
