It's a Refreshing Summer with the Divas

Hello Crafty Friends,
Welcome back and thank you for visiting!
I have been busy crafting and cleaning. My hubby even teased me yesterday saying I should be a stay at home mom since he liked having dinner ready right when he got home for work. Then he said , "Not going to happen until the kids are on their own." sure expensive, aren't they?!?! Between high school and college...need I say more!
Today brings a new challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas, so here is another opportunity for you to share your newest creation.
The Challenge... Refreshing Summer
When I think of summer not only do I think  about the beach and pool, but I think about cookouts with watermelon. It seems we don't eat it any other time of the year except summer. Here in Florida you can find a truck on the side of the road at any corner selling whole melons for only a couple dollars.
Here is my Design Team project...
Tip of the Day...Don't be afraid to use a variety of embellishments. I have combined skittles by Carri, my handmade stick pin, and gingham ribbon. Use a variety of colors and be creative!
I used the sketch from Seems a Little Sketchy.
 papers are from scrap box (really trying to use them!)
Preserves Cricut cartridge ~ watermelon slice (p. 39) cut at 2"
"Just Because" Cards Cricut cartridge ~ sentiment (p. 55) cut at 2" 
skittles ~ meadow, watermelon, and sunset orange
beads and straight pin
pink and white gingham ribbon 
pink ink on edges
