Sweet Sunday Sketch #124

Hi there! I hope all of my U.S. readers are enjoying their nice long 4th of July weekend! We're having a fun relaxing weekend full of mornings at the beach and lazy afternoons at home! Tomorrow evening we're headed out on a sunset boat trip on a Catamaran around to Lahaina side where we're watch the fireworks display from the boat before heading back to Maalaea harbor after dark. Please keep your fingers crossed for calm waters as I get EXTREMELY seasick - I haven't been on a boat in YEARS for this reason. I don't go on whale watches or snorkel cruises because it's just not fun to have your head in a bucket puking your guts up the entire time!! And no, none of the wrist bands or ginger candy or anything else on the market works for me (I think I'm the most sensitive person I've ever met - sometimes I even get seasick when I surf, sitting on my board waiting for waves and I'll just have to go in. I also only go paddleboarding or kayaking early in the morning on FLAT days or else I'll be sick). Dramamine doesn't even work for me. I do use prescription Scopolamine patches, which I think work better than anything else I've tried, but unless it's really calm I'll probably still be hanging over the side making chum for the fish all evening! So yeah, fingers crossed OK? ;-)

Anyway, you're probably not here to read about vomit, right? So it's Sunday. That means it's time for another fabulous Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! I had lots of fun with this week's sketch and this one went straight into the "Use Again" folder!!


I created a fun and easy hybrid sample this week...


The papers and that super fun margarita element are all printed digi goodies from the SPF 45 kit by Traci Reed (Sweet Shoppe). That oh-so-appropriate sentiment is from the Chillax stamp set from Taylored Expressions. A simple twine-tied button was all the embellishment it needed!

Be sure to stop by all the Sweet Sunday Stampers' blogs and see what they've done with this week's sketch. A few of the girls are taking the week off this week due to fun stuff, but stop by anyway - their blogs are always full of inspiration!
Then play along with us and post your own creation using InLinkz over on today's post on Karen's Blog!

Fingers crossed for smooth waters for you! Maybe you should have one of those delish margaritas before you head out!
