Backyard BBQ Day 2

It's day 2 of our Backyard BBQ Blog Hop. If you are joining me from Kim's Blog then welcome, if not start at the Embellish-Online blog and join in the fun!
Here is the sketch the DT used and we want you to use it too. Create a card or layout using our sketch, upload it here (you'll have to register it so, so easy and of course it's free!) Once you upload, post in this thread with a link to your project for a chance to win an amazing American Crafts prize package!
Here's what I created with Christine's fabulous sketch! Now I want to see what you can do with it! I used the gorgeous American Crafts Backyard collection along with some details and a piece from the super cute Remarks journaling book.

And as added piece of fun in honor of my birthday I want to hear from you! Leave me a comment on this post and tell me what your favorite summertime activity is. On Sunday night I'll pick a random winner to win a $30 gift certificate to the Embellish-Online Store!


I'm the last stop on the hop for today. Tune in tomorrow morning at Cindy's blog for some more backyard fun!
