They are BOTH my sunshine

Dropping off a new layout I finished today called, "You are her sunshine". Love these pics I took of the kids at the outdoor concert last week - they were just screaming to be scrapped
:-) I gave handstitching a try and outlined the sun and then stickled it. I think it's hard to see in the pics, but I cut out some flowers from 7 Gypsies pp to give a little bit of dimension by the felt border. I also added a rub-on to that border - I wasn't sure if it would work on the felt or not, but it did! I was really scared when I was doing it, though, lol. My mom gave me those chip letters - she saw them at Michael's the other day and thought I would like them - isn't she the sweetest??
Having a good week here. Yesterday I met some friends out in VA at a waterpark. It was perfect for my kids as there were plenty of waterslides in the shallow end.

Tomorrow we are meeting some friends in DC to hit up some of the museums - there are some cool exhibits we think the kids will like. I've never taken the kids to DC before so i'm excited... should be a fun day!

Hope everyone is having a good week!
