Trigger Tuesday and Some Sunny Inspiration

Hey Everyone,

It's official...School is out for summer!  Woohooo!  (of course I say that now but we'll see how I feel after spending some 'quality time' with all three of my girlies this summer....hopefully I'll still be exclaiming the sentiment throughout the summer!  Wish me luck!)
The summer is off to a great start as all three of my girlies are having a sleepover at the grandparents tonight!  (Double WOOOHOOOO!!!)
Lately I find my scrapbooking photo inspiration coming from the digital frame that is in our family room.  It has a timer in it and it goes on and off a regular intervals and allows me to take a gander at photos of memories of yore.  I dare say it is in need of a refreshment of newer photos but I'm loving seeing all the older photos and remembering.  I'm not much of a chronological scrapbooker so I'm very content to dig up these memories and reliving them as I create a home for them amoung my scrapbook pages (*sigh*).
This next layout came from a couple of challenge blog inspirations and I think it came together nicely.  Memories of Central Park, NYC when my older girlies were little.  NYC has become an annual event since but these early trips are always a treasure!
Not sure where the paper is from.  The ledger stamp is from Autumn Leaves.  The 'perk' die cut letters are from Sizzix and the 'central' letters are from Quickutz.  
 Cooling off in the splash pad and gigantic giggles on the swings...bring on the summer and sunshine I say!  The flowered paper in this layout is from one of the first pads of paper I ever purchased (dare I say  a decade ago!).  The 'friends' ledger stamp is also at least 5 years old.  The die cut letters are also at least 5 years old as well.  Forgot all about the Quickutz font I had!  Love to be able to put all these to good use again!  I got the colour inspiration from this week's Trigger Tuesday: Scene in Tangerine over at Moxie Fab World.

I would like to submit this to the following blogs:
