Buckets of Fun!!!

Yesterday was  a beautiful day here in my neck of the woods. The sun was out and loved by many today, especially those who took their friends and family to the beach! For those of the beach goers who forgot to bring sunscreen, sunburns showed bringing  beautiful fire red to many arms and little faces. Emma my 3 year old has milky white skin, a true Dutch baby who loves to be out on nice days but who doesn't take to the first heat of summer very well, I opted out of the bathing suit today, and put on a little sundress. Not exactly the shot I was going for to pull together this layout, but for her sake the best bet! Ive thrown in a few extra pics for my grandma at the bottom of the post- love you Grandma! This is what I'm scrappin now!
About the layout: I used We R Memory Keepers Yankee Doodles collection
DCVW tan paper for the sand in 2 different colors
Tim Holtz Distressed ink -tea dye for the sand texture
Stampin' up Basic Black ink for the sentiment
Kristal Andrews stamps from getting cricky for the saying "Buckets of Fun"
you can find it in her newest stamp set called Splash-tastic Summer!
Just got these stamps and LOVE them, AND the fact that they don't get "lost" on my layouts! That's huge, I'm a layout scrappin kinda girl!!! I'm entering it in her Sunday challenge you can find it here at her blog gettingcricky.
