Sketch #43-10

Hello everyone! This week I have a new sketch to share with you, and to wrap up the month of July, a wonderful group of SIX layouts from the S:CY Design Team. The sketch must be pretty versatile because the layouts this week celebrate birthdays, educational milestones, families, good times, playtime, and even sight-seeing!

So... Go grab a coffee or tea, sit back and enjoy this week's offerings from the fab S:CY Team. 

Thanks for visiting! Remember to share a link with us if you try this sketch. We'd LOVE to see your creation(s)!
