RS #24 & CFC65

A busy week so far, I put this down as the busiest summer ever.  My daughter left this morning, at 2:00 am actually for cheer camp in Pennsylvania!  They rode on the bus through the night from Toronto.  She comes back on Saturday night.  Tomorrow I drive my son and drop him off for the Ontario Summer Games.  The Opening Ceremony is on Thursday night then the games take place Friday and Saturday.  Thursday night my husband and I with another couple are going to see American Idol Live in Toronto.  I bought the tickets in the spring for our family, but both kids are unable to go so we asked our friends to join us.  I hope we are not the oldest ones there.  LOL

To de-stress I spent some crafty time today making a card for both RetroSketches and CASual Fridays. A really challenging sketch this week for me but I decided that I was going to use the cute freebie digital image from The Alley Way Stamps and change the shape of the sketch to a square to fit the CASuals Fridays challenge.


 


All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock: White, Hawaiian Shores, Aqua Mist, Summer sunrise
Digital Image: Fish (The Alley Ways Stamps)
Dies: Circles, Scallop Circles (Spellbinders)
Other:  printer, foam tape, Copic markers (Y12, Y15, Y18, BG11, BG13), circles embossing folder (Provo Craft)

So, so adorable, Tracey! And this week the challenge on CAS-ual Fridays is something ocean-related! Funny, how sometimes a lot of our CAS challenges blend. Anyway, it's perfect for all the ones you played in, especially the retrosketch which left me clueless!
