ColourQ #95 and Sketches In Thyme

Good Morning all my blogging friends! 
Today I have my DT layout for ColourQ  - this week the colors were so bright and cheery.
Very summery in my opinion :0)

The photos I have used are of my DD frolicking in the ocean waves, I thought they were a wonderful compliment to the color scheme. 

  I love, love, love this photo of my DD - 
it is the day before her graduation and she is so HAPPY!
I have used MME papers and Bazzill cardstock. The banner is from House of 3, I have also used K&co, Prima, Cosmo Cricket, Creative Imaginations, Maya Road, KaiserCraft, Ruby Rock-It and a lot of random stuff from my craft stash.

For the title I started with a Maya Road chipboard, painted it with a Ranger paint dauber, then outlined it with a pen. I then splattered it with Pearlescent Liquid Acrylic Ink - I love those things. To give it some pop I used foam squares to adhere it on the page. 
Here is the full LO  - I really am a double page LO kinda girl. :0)
Yes - those are real tattoos on her feet - my silly little child! You can pay their college tuition - but you can't make 'em mind, right! 

Here is a look at the color palette from  ColourQ  

As I said - very summery colors this week. Please hop on over to the blog  and take a look at the fabulous things the other girls have made. 

I have used the great sketch from Sketches In Thyme   Thursday Takes #51 for one of the pages of my LO. It was just perfect for this photo - here is a look at the sketch

  If you have never been over to see the great sketches they have you should check them out - wonderful sketches and you have all month long to get them done!

If you are still with me at the end of this very long post, I hope you are having a wonderful week so far!
