I can't believe that I completely forgot to post my Sweet Stop Sketch card yesterday!!
It's another awesome sketch by the always fabulous Korin.  
And speaking of forgetting...this Runaway Cake stamp by Your Next Stamp would make a PERFECT image for a belated birthday card.

I have to admit that this summer, my usual organized self has been tucked away and my more carefree side has emerged. Some of my best and favorite memories as a kid are the vacations my family took together.  And now that I have a family of my own I get a big kick out of taking my kids to some of those treasured vacation spots.  So... I invited my sister and her family along with my Mom to revisit a place that I we stopped at during our 1980 family Florida vacation...Weechi Wachi - Home to the World Famous Mermaids.  I remember how much my sister and I loved watching the magic of the mermaids and knew that Brooke would love it too!!  They've now added a small water park where we swam in the natural fresh water springs.  That was without a doubt the clearest water (you can see 30+ feet to the bottom) and the coldest water (68 degrees) that I've ever swam in before in all my life!!  It was so cold that it felt like you were swimming in a glass of ice water and actually stung a little when you first got in.  But with the heat index being 113 degrees it was positively refreshing!

Here are a few photos from yesterday  :)

The other Sugar Babies created (and posted on time) gorgeous sketch samples to inspire you with.  I hope you will stop by and check them out if you haven't already.

Delightful the way the cake echoes the patterned paper cakes, never mind your paper piecing of it - how's that finger doing? Sounds like you had a very legitimate excuse for not posting - enjoy your time with the family.

Making my way down! I have missed so many!! Geesh. I have always wanted to go to Weechi Wachie! I'm planning to go over that way to visit my aunt in a month or so, so I may have to put that on our agenda. I think my daugther would get a kick out of it!
