Flying High

We are on vacation here in Maine this week and the weather has been AMAZING!  It feels very summerlike, but we still have eight LONG weeks of school before it will really be summer.  Both of my kids got new kites for Easter this year and have been dying to take them for a spin.  We finally got the chance this past Sunday- it was a gorgeous, sunny, breezy day when there was nothing else on the calendar!  So, we went down the road to a park about 5 minutes from home where there is plenty of open space to fly their kites.  It was really the first time that they could fly them without a lot of help from mom or dad.

Here's Elizabeth and her kite!  I had a fun time using the "Title Sports" collection for this layout.  The bright colors are so fun for summer-day activities!

Here's a close up of the fun pattern of squares:

And, here's a close up of the cute diecut kite!

This layout is based on a sketch from the fabulous Heather Landry!  Thanks, Heather, for letting me share it!

Fabulous page Nik and oh so fun! I think I am bringing my kite to Houston so you can teach me how to fly one... I never did get the hang of it when the kids were little.
