Where is the summer going?

July 25th, 2009

Whew….well I’m typing this from the North Woods of Wisconsin.  My family is vacationing with my parents, brother, aunt and uncle and cousins at my parent’s summer cottage.  Just a little place on a water flowage.  But it’s darn nice sitting here in the rocking lawn chair, sipping my coffee and looking out at the river.

Sooo  what am I doing you ask?  Well in between fishing, and hiking and picnics I created a few layouts and a card.  The boys were out having fun so I had a quite moment to create.  Yes I bring my scrapping supplies EVERYWHERE!

I did whip out this cute card with scraps from some layouts I did using Bo Bunny products.

Also two weeks from today we head out to Disney World!  Brayden is getting so EXCITED!  I’ll be sure to take lots of pics to scrap!

One more note…I suggest you check out Citrus Tree Studio today, they are having a Christmas in July Crop with lots of fun goodies to be won!  Great challenges and projects to get your mojo going.  You can check it out here.

Happy 4th of July

July 2nd, 2009

So to get ready for all the Independece Day festivities that are going on this weekend…I thought why not use some of my scrapping stash to create a fun decoration that my little one can bring to the parade and fireworks!  Then I saw a challenge posted on Fancy Pants blog and it was just the extra nudge I needed to grab some supplies.  I created a fun firecracker decoration using Fancy Pants Spiffy Collection ( die cuts, ribbon and paper) I also used a miscellaneous star and flag button as an accent.
