Happy Friday Everyone! I hope everyone has had a good week. Happy Belated Canada Day to all my Canadian Friends and happy July 4th to all my US friends (if I don't see you on Sunday)!

This is my first July 4th being home for the past seven years. Usually we are camping on July 4th but we went for our vacation earlier this year. I think next year we will return to our usual time since Scott and I are sort of dreading that we are not going this year. Oh well....We have picnics and fireworks with friends as well as some time to spend with my parents so what more can I ask for right?
Today I want to share a fun summertime image from Inky Impressions. The Inky Team has been taking a break for the summer (the store is still open though) and so I have not posted many Inky images as of late not because I do not like the images but just because LIFE HAS BEEN CRAZY BUSY! The break came at a good time for me. I did receive some summertime images that I was eager to ink up, however, so I just had to sneak in an Inky. This image is one of my fave Inky images ever: Water Lili.

The layout is this week's Sketch For You To Try by Jen del Muro. My image is water colored. The dp is from October Afternoon.
