Smash It Summer Fun!

I found some inspiration and decided to enter a Smash Challenge.  Smash books have been so ~ well scary to me!  I am great at collecting things but not great at Smashing....yet!

Karin from Smash Addicts posted a 2-page Summer challenge and I wanted to give it a try! 
I use my Gypsy most of the time so naturally I grabbed her and got designing.  Most of you know I broke my right wrist and I am right handed.  I can not easily sketch my layouts right now, but I can size up the pieces on my Gypsy!!

I used the font from Cherry Limeade and sized the letters to 1.5".
The pool is from H2O sized to 3.3"
The sun is from H2O sized to 1.5"
Home plate is from Baseball sized to 2.53"
The ball players, also from Baseball, are sized to 1.82"
I cut everything out from cardstock scraps.
I used Paper trimmimgs to cut out this 12" border of daisies.

Journaling is difficult for me right now, so I typed:
Soccer Mom
Baseball, Baseball, Baseball
In the pool
Vacation Fun
Flower Lust
I Love Summer
6-15-12, 22nd day in my cast

Everything else is from my stash.

Thanks for the inspiration!!

Yay for you to jump in per say! Well you gave me inspiration, I never considered laying it all out on the gypsy first and that is really a good idea. TFS
