July Double Challenge Entry - Drinks by the Pool!

I had some extra free time this month and decided to play along with a few more challenge blogs - (not sure how that happened but I am so glad it did!)

I am LOVIN' this SKETCH Challenge over at the STUCK?! Sketch Challenge Blog the month and I'm so happy I had a chance to Play along!
and the Pick a Minimum of 5 Items Challenge for the TAKE 5 Tuesday Challenge from the Paper Issues BLOG - inspired me too! 

I used: Orange, Pink, Stickers, Cardstock, Washi, Layers, Patterned Paper, Enamel Dots. - 9 Items in all!

Here is my layout!
This is a memory capture of a SUPER FUN Brothers week we shared with my hubby's brothers and our sister-in-laws at the AWESOME Beaches in Turks and Caicos in October of 2015!  We really had an amazing time!

The Die-cut title was made by the FABULOUS and multi-talented "Mama Doodle" from my favorite On-Line Scrapbook Store -  Scrap-a-Doodle Doo - (

I bought it at the last weekend crop they hosted - and there was some discussion as to what the title actually says -
Is it - "Drinks by the Pool" - or - "Drunks by the Pool" 
What do you think?

I think it all depends upon the time of day ( and the number of drinks consumed ) when the photos were taken!  So - what do you think - Drinks or Drunks?  I am happy it seems to do "double duty!" LOL!

I used NUVO Mousse by Tonic Studios and a stencil to make the shimmery swirls on the base page - I used Aquamarine and Spring Green to make them.  I LOVE this stuff!! So much FUN!

Thanks for stopping by - I hope you are inspired to play along with these challenges - or at least find a few minutes for YOU to create!
