This is the last Verve sketch of July and I combined it with this week's Dynamic Duo challenge of Kraft and Early Espresso for a bit of fun :)
Just "had" to pull out PTI's Autumn Acorns set as I love these cute little acorns and the the colour combo just seemed to fit them perfectly. A bit of wood grain embossing for the "tree" and I managed to sneak in a few polka dots too :)
Back for week two of swimming lessons - phew! We will have to wait until Wednesday or Thursday to see if the kids are going to pass their level but regardless of the outcome, it has been great fun for all of us :)
Rest of the day will be spent watching as much of the Olympics as possible. After having competed in track and field, volleyball and diving, as well as being very involved in sports all my life, I am definitely an Olympic junkie :) However, I am very saddened by the rampant use of steroids and wish they could be eliminated. IMHO, any athlete who tests positive for steroid use should be stripped of any medals/records they achieved - even if they admit to the use of it years afterwards (i.e. Marion Jones). Okay, I'll get off my soapbox now.
Wishing you a glorious day :)
