SOS June Sketch + SUMMER "Bon Voyage!"

Hi Scrappy friends!  Summer is finally here in New Jersey - we've had such cold and rainy weather these last few weeks, but now we are finally being treated to some sunshine and warm temperatures - just as June should be!!  I hope it is sunny in "your neck of the woods" too!

I can't wait to share the June Sketch Plus Word Challenge from SCRAP OUR STASH with you! This month's "WORD" is "SUMMER" - besides using the sketch below for your inspiration - you must use something from your "STASH" that starts with each of the letters in the word SUMMER!

Here are the items I used:
S- Simple Stories Say Cheese Epoxy Metal Clips, Silver Anchor, Stickers
U- Uniball Pen - handwriting in the Title
M - Mickey Mouse, Metal Brads, 
M - My Mind's Eye "Bye the Sea" ( Open Seas and All Aboard)
E - Echo Park Enamel Dots
R - Ranger Distress Stains
I had so much fun using this sketch to document one of our "bucket list" vacations. I used photos of my husband and I sailing away from Miami, at the start of our 14 night Disney Wonder Westbound Panama Canal Cruise, in May of 2016. 

Here is my DT Inspiration layout for you!
We were so happy to be on board - as there were some issues a few days prior to sailing.  It seems that the cruise prior to ours had an outbreak of the Norovirus - and the CDC had to get involved!!  We were unsure if our cruise would leave the day it was scheduled to depart - and we were on pins and needles until we got the news that it would!  (Although we did leave about 4 hours later than scheduled!)

Here are some close ups for you:

I had these cool shirts made that listed all of our ports of call on the back. The WBPC stands for WestBound Panama Canal - and the 16 is the year we sailed through!
The front of the shirts had cruise ports and cruise words listed in the shape of a Mickey head.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope I've inspired you to use some of your STASH and join us this month at the Scrap Our Stash Blog!!
