Awesome Day for a Lasting Memories Challenge

Good Morning to you :) Today is the new week's challenge over at Lasting Memories.
In keeping with our theme of childhood games... use the below photo for inspiration.
 Absolutely anything can be used!!

LMCB # 302

Again... anything for inspiration.  
I went with the colors and something along the playing card blocks with a photo then a block
 These are more photos during that day walking with Buddy. It was an Awesome Day. This is the companion page to the otherr layout using the left overs from the polka dot paper. The layout was created from my Counterfeit Kit: Just Chillin' I pulled the yellow from my scrap bin to enhance the layout and bring in the yellow from the flowers. Note: make sure there is enough matching papers for layered layouts in my kit :) I know one thing the smaller kit is working out this month and just may have it kicked by the end of the month :)
The sketch I used to inspire my layout came from Sketches in Thyme: Week 2
Sketch #208 by the amazingly talented, Brenshevia Baker....
Isn't this just a cool sketch :)
 The purple hearts were punched out from the navy paper. The layout was created in mind of another challenge in another group to use negative die cuts which I used the circle and the scallop punches to create the blocks and added the blue/yellow background paper. All the embellishments and layers came from scraps on my table so I then can use Whimsical Musings Challenge #19 - Inspired by the scraps on your table
I had fun creating the blocks and will use this technique again.
My journaling. 
I look forward to seeing what you create and link up at Lasting Memories.
