A summery card and pool pics!

Hello! Today I have a card using a new release from The Stamps Of Life called, swirls4words.  I used one of the sentiments and one of the flowers for the orange panel.  The designer paper is Sasafrass Lass.  The butterflies are die cuts from Cosmo Cricket's Salt Air collection.  I thought these colors were fun for summertime.
It is amazing to me how fast the summer has gone.  We have been busy, busy doing a bit of traveling and hanging out in our little backyard pool.  We bought this pool last summer, and  never imagined it would last for another!  It's one of those soft sided pools that you hook up to a filter, but easy to put up and take down.  It is perfect for the boys (for now).  We would like to put in an in-ground pool when all of the boys are a bit older and stronger swimmers!  For now, this little pool works beautifully!
Below you will find some fun summer photos I took of them the other day.  Will is showing off his new Lego freighter.  We had to get that set since it reminds us of the lake freighters that go by my parents cottage in Michigan!  Max and Luke are goofing around with the pool noodles.  Good times...

Thanks for stopping by!

Such handsome guys...and it's a good thing Marcel isn't standing with me...he'd want to come over and play with their lego ships!

Oooh, I'm jealous of your pool and sunshine! Looks like y'all are having a great summer (well, any summer is great if it involves legos!)

Love the fun layout you used on your card and those butterflies are just perfect for the sweet summer breeze!
