Summer Sketch fun!

I have been enjoying the Summer Camp over at Personalscrapper this summer! The bonus challenge for last week was to create a layout with a song title. I had a hard time at first coming up with a title (well, actually I had several fun titles in mind but no pics to go with! lol!) Then as I was getting ready for bed one night the song "UR my Sunshine" came on a commercial and I immediately thought of this sketch I had made last September for Personalscrapper but NEVER used to make a layout....thus this page was born :o) I am also entering this in Practical Scrappers weekly challenge which is to use woodgrain on your layout. I LOVE the woodgrain look! This layout combines MANY different manufacturers using scraps I had left over from various kits etc. The manufacturers on this page include: Basic Grey (stripe), Fancy Pants (sun body), We R Memory Keepers (sun rays), Cosmo Cricket (background woodgrain), My Mind's Eye (larger dotted strip) and Bella Blvd (smaller dotted strip). A total of SIX manufacturers papers! The bigger letters are from October Afternoon and ae woodgrain as well. Smaller letters are from the Paper Loft and the journaling circle is from Jillibean Soup. This makes a total of NINE manufacturers products on this page! I NEVER mix it up like this, I tend to use all stuff from a line at once, but it was nice that I was able to use up scraps and things fell together so easily. These pictures are from our Washington, DC trip last August and are ones I took while we were waiting for the boat to pick us up from Mount Vernon after we had spent the day there. It was an awesome trip! I hope you can use this sketch, it would work great for your summer pics, if you use it don't forget to link it up in the comments section! Have a great weekend everyone!
