SPCC #35 & FTL #79

Boy I hate it when weekends just fly by and on Sunday you're sitting there going "Darn!". At least it's a gorgeous Sunday and the sun is shining! I'm trying out a Fall To Layout (FTL) sketch from the Clean & Simple blog. I've been following this blog for a while and absolutely love the clean lines that the sketches always offer. 
This week's SPCC colors were also nice and bright and easy to incorporate into a simple sketch. I textured both white backgrounds but you can't really tell with one of them. The summer sun used on the orange isn't very bright because I tried doing the scratch n' sniff technique but have never had success with it. It does still smell orangey though so I decided to leave it. In the photo it looks quite orange but in person it looks like a breastfeeding baby's poop. I've got a big night of card making in front of me. Hopefully we'll finish off a bit early so I can still catch the last bit of the big hockey game against the US tonight.
