So Sketchy Thursdays has provided the sketch, but ScrapFit has provided the challenge: scrap about friends!

#52- F Is For Friendship: Friends are the family members we pick out by hand. Let's dedicate this week's layout to a special friend(s). Show us who you hang out with or call when you need to vent!

Because this theme was about friends, my good friend Heather (who is also on the Sketchy Thursdays team) and I decided to do something fun!  A few weeks ago, our girls got together for some fun splashing and swimming at our community water park.  So we decided that since we both had to use this sketch, that we'd scrap photos from the same event!  We both chose photos that we loved from the day, and the separately created pages based on the sketch.

Here was my take on the sketch and theme....

I used some yellow cardstock and a transparency from Fancy Pants "baby mine" collection, which I won a few months ago from their blog. 

I actually used a PROTRACTOR (first time since college physics) to measure and draw my "rays".  I then cut them out of the transparency and glued it to the cardstock and stitched the rays with a zig-zag stitch.

The other elements are also from Fancy Pants..the Beach Babe collection.

This was so fun!  Go see what Heather did for her page and be sure to check out the blog hop!!!
