Wading pool

Does this scene look familiar? Waiting for the kiddie pool to fill with water took forever!

This is another winsome image by Eat Cake Graphics. I have used several images which I will link up for you and masked them to get the image itself. Some distress ink and a cloud template for the sky and I used some diamond dew drops for the rays of the sun.

Images:

Amanda, this is just adorable! It so reminds me of the kids when they were little. I would bring out the pool and the would just stand there waiting so happy for it finally to be filled. Oh the scrapbook pages I could share. lol.. Love your card and your coloring as always. I really like how you made the sun. I have never seen those, but very nice touch. I hope the weekend is getting there quickly enough for you. Hugs, Lisa

Beautiful card and coloring Amanda. Love the bright colors and the sun looks fabulous. Ah yes, I remember those days (though they were verrry long ago). Man, that water would be sooo cold!

And no-one was allowed in until it was full. But the minute you turned your back to turn the tap off - your little brother was in! Ta heaps for those lovely memories.
Cute card too. x

Ha! So true. Or while the pool is filling, the dog jumps in and gets grass clippings and dirt in the pool. I love the fun papers and nice bright coloring on it.
