Summer is Here!

Today is my first official day of summer! WOOT!  And I am on my way to Utah to see my daughter for a week! We had two wonderful talent shows at my school yesterday with acts from piano to magic tricks to tap dance to flag line to string quintet. All sorts of fun things. But now I am ready for a vacation!  So last night I was BUZZING around trying to get ready to go!

It's Thursday, and that means a fabulous sketch from Jen - Deconstructed Sketch 52:
I used the ADORABLE bee from The Alley Way Stamps' Priceless Joy set. I stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored in using Copic Markers Y02, Y08, C3 and BV29. The chipboard letters were stamped with Charcoal VersaMark ink and then embossed with Midnight Madness and Firefly Embossing Powder.I have Crystal Stickles on the bee's wings.

The Deconstructed Sketch girls have some terrific samples to show, so be sure to have a visit at their blogs too!
