PPC...crafty challenge #71 - "You & Me" Scrap Layout

Happy Labor Day all!!  The last "Unofficial" day of summer.  But you wouldn't know it by the wonderful weather we are having in my part of country or by my FUN, BRIGHT scrap layout that I am excited to share with you today!! 
Today for PPC #71 color combo challenge, Megan delivered an awesome palette!!  Pumpkin Pie, Lucky Limeade, Rose Red and Island Indigo.  That pretty much SCREAMS summer in my book.  :-)

These are my kiddos on one of our BIG family vacations this summer.  For as much as they get along and then DON'T get along (mostly at home)... they are growing to be such good buddies and didn't leave eachother's side during our time away.  Yes, they are holding hands in the bigger picture and then hanging out at the end of the dock in the smaller picture.. sharing who knows what kind of little secrets.  This is the stuff that scrapbook pages are made of.  I have proof for them later in life.  Come on over to PPC this week and show us your Cards, Scrap Pages, 3-D projects or just about anything using these COLORS!!  The talented Design Team has som FUN things to show you as well!!  They always do!! 

I am also submitting this layout as a 2ND entry for my other DT blog Lasting Memories #54 where the THEME is Simply You!!  These are simply my children that I simply LOVE!!  :-)  You can see my 1st entry HERE with all the details and fun info.!!! New DT, Fun Giveaway!!  LOTS and LOTS of very fun new inspiration!!! Need I say more?? 

And... this layout also follows the challenge over at Paper Playtime #54 where it's VACATION theme and use a STAMPED image or sentiment on your project.  My Title and Tag are both Stamped sentiments.
Fun Gals over there with LOTS of fun projects to see.

And Finally... I did follow a sketch from The Scrappiest for my layout.  I am too late to enter their contest... but absolutley loved this sketch so wanted to give them credit!
