It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!!

Only 3 more weeks here and the kids are back to school. In that time we have swimming, Sleep away camp for Alex and Hockey Camp for Alex and Connor. I realized I had neglected to do up their school pages from last year so I started with them doing their signature pages.

This is a page (and the are 3 more along the same idea for each child although the other kids have a Junior and Senior Kindergarten Strip) I created 5 years ago after seeing something similar in a magazine. I love watching their handwriting evolve.

I hope to work on their pages this week for last year so we are 'caught' up. Maybe even get a preschool page done for Hannah!

Enjoy the rest of your summer!

Moon Doggie Restores My Soul

I'll admit it.. I've been struggling... Wanted to share something super fantastic with you all since I haven't posted in ages.

I just couldn't do it. No inspiration, mojo, creative juices, whatever you might call it.

So I took this layout I created for a swap and I added pictures. Just looking at these pictures from the cabin made me slow down, take a breath and just RELAX.

The journalling in the pocket says "nothing is more peaceful or soul restoring than sitting at sunset or sunrise and just drinking in God's Wonder"

Yikes! Slackin' Off

I realize I haven't posted much lately but having all 4 kids home is a challenge to getting anything of mine done! Now I am off for a day or two to the cabin but will be home again with no children and hope to get lots of scrapbooking and stamping done to share with everyone!

Happy Summer!

Thanks Paige! You inspire me with your flair!

I must say it's so much fun to peruse other people's blogs and see their creativity and generosity in allowing others to imitate their work. I saw the beautiful cards fellow consultant Paige Dolecki (visit her blog simply by clicking on her name!!) made for the July SOTM Blog Hop and had to do my own. Mine are very similar, why mess with a good thing?? and I am now sharing them as a workshop at the end of this month so you can learn to make them too... and only for $5!! Visit my calendar on my website for more details!




These cards are made with (all CTMH)
Black Cardstock
You've Got Flair - July SOTM
Versamark Ink
Black Ink
White Embossing Powder
Organdy Ribbon (colour used here is retired)
