Summer fun has over taken my life and now the kids will be going back to school in a few days, boo hoo. We took a trip to Hershey Park...the sweetest place on earth! Random trips to birthday parties, the Philly Phils, the Reading Phils, mini golfing and in between all that those everyday things like soccer practice and riding lessons. We have even been to the beach twice in the last few weeks. I love the beach...but I could do without all that sand, what a mess! This is the boys and my nephew.
My scrapping has taken a back burner the last few weeks with all our activities but I did get to a crop at Scraptacular. How fun! September's kit at Scraptacular features Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker Henry's Brilliance line...perfect for back to school! I love this line and used it for both these projects. Nikki just send to me a great big box of Boo-tiful and I already made 2 LO and a card with it. I will be back to share them on the 1st.
I made this little tin for Jack to carry his snack money to school. It is an altered mint container and small enough to fit into a pencil or lunch box...no more lost quarters for this little guy!
I also made this LO using the same line...showing off Nick's summer hair! He loves his blond highlights!
I played with some Marks Paper Company goodies! Nick and I spend the day at Kitchen Kettle Village and really enjoyed ourselves...I included 7 photos on this LO, definitely a first for me. There is also several jotters by Jenn at Creative Chaos Etsy. They are my favorite way to embellish! I use them on most of my LO's now.
Here is a card too!
The Pebbles, Inc. blog was filled with tons of amazing ways to use ribbon this week. Here is a layout I made featuring their ribbon.
This is my niece Sam competing at a Horse Show.
As usual some of my favorite project always come from working with Black River Designs paper. This month is no exception. I absolutely love these photos of Jack and my old girl Lucy!
A few details...
Here is a birthday card I made using it too.
I just got a box of goodies from GCD Studios and can't wait to dive it to that as a product tester. Yippie!
Hope you have all had as great a summer as I have and thanks so much for stopping by.
