The heat is on!

I cannot believe it is already June!  That means summer is very near! Summer is my favorite season of them all.  Besides the fact that it is hot, who wouldn't welcome lounging by the pool, walking around in tank tops and shorts everyday and being off work for a few weeks.  Oh, the joys of working for the school system!

With that being said, I also love summer time because it is the time of year where my family does the majority of our travelling and I get a lot of great pictures out of the deal.  In addition, next month is my 40th birthday and we are planning a trip to Las Vegas!  Can you say fun?

Last month we travelled to Costa Rica for my cousin's wedding in the mountains.  It was beautiful!  The trip also doubled as an early anniversary trip as well.  We will be celebrating our 1 year anniversary on June 22nd.  I think the first year is a paper anniversary so I need to get to work trying to figure out what I am going to gift the husband.  I thought of making him something (easy enough) but now I have something else in mind.  If I can make it happen, he is going to LOVE it!

At any rate, check out some of my latest work:

Here is a layout of the husband and I at my cousin's wedding.  Her colors were pink and silver so these pictures were PERFECT for the mood board I had to use for the Black with 2 mood board and sketch.

Isn't this an absolutely yummy board?  I was worried at first about using brown on a black background, but I love the way everything turned out...especially after adding the paint splashes.

This layout was done for the Sketch N Scrap challenge blog.  Guess what? I am the June guest designer!  Here is the sketch:

Sweet and simple!  I absolutely love working with sketches and am very thankful for the opportunity to work with the ladies over at Sketch N Scrap this month!

Well, off to complete a few other projects.  I've been promising a mini album forever so hopefully I will be able to bring that to you very soon!
