Happy Day

Hello :) I hope you all had a great weekend :) We attended the Campbell Family reunion despite the weather and rain it was a good day yesterday. The last day of July, wow where did it go! My July didn't go as I was expecting it to, no Christmas cards made at all! So I guess I'll be a bit busy next month trying to get going on them :) Maybe Christmas in August instead of July :)
Today is Lasting Memories new challenges for August and were taking on the new Adult Coloring trends! Have you seen these coloring books in the craft shops :) it's one way to grow up and be a kid again :) So the 1st challenge this month is Include all 7 colors of the rainbow or an actual rainbow on your layouts. I think I may have covered both in my layout:
These pictures were taken with my phone :) so they are not the best but it was so cool to see this rainbow that day when I went to the bank. I knew it was going to happen when I seen the sun shining and it was raining. So instead of looking at it as a bad day cause I had planned on going to the fair, I looked at it as a good day cause we were in such need for the rain :) So I went to the fair on Monday and found out it was free admission so it all worked out, life as we know it :) God moves in many ways to brighten our day.
This layout is going to cover a few challenges, 1st I used the sketch over at Sketches in Thyme for my layout:
Sketch #211:
This was a fun sketch to work with. I like the way the clusters were going up through the center of the layout and used the left over puffy butterfly stickers on my layout. The butterfly stickers cover a challenge over at Archi-scraps a challenge blog that I missed doing a layout for last month when I went to check today the new challenge was up so glad to see butterflies for the theme of the challenge :) I used Whimsical Musings Challenge #35 - Inspired by silver linings there is a silver lining about that day :)
 A close up of the pictures with the rainbow. I had heard that the Flight 800 memorial in our area, was having it's memorial when the rainbow came out, wonderful to see God work in this way/
My journaling. I do appreciate what God gives us and we see it most in his creations :) I had fun creating this with part of my current counterfeit kit Just Chillin' I was surprised I didn't have much left in the kit, another week and I just may have killed it :) So the new kit inspiration comes out tomorrow and I'm looking forward to seeing it :) Thank you for stopping by today and I look forward to seeing your creation soon posted over at Lasting Memories.
