Gift Cards

September. Unbelievable! Anyone else wondering where summer went? You will have to pardon my blog absence but we were away for LOTS of the summer. It was wonderful...many relaxing days at the beach, fishing, boating, tubing, swimming, too much eating (!), spending so much time TOGETHER as a family. Then I spent some time in Vancouver, for my sweet friend's wedding! So happy for her to have found love! And after that, back to the lake. Summer sweetness.

However, it is right back to routines now...and I embrace that. My kids finally go to bed at their bedtimes and my evenings are mine again. Hello scrap room...I've missed you! I made these cute purse cards that open up to hold a gift card using mostly the fabulous Posh collection from Teresa Collins.

Now I am off to get inspired by your blogs :-) :-) :-)

Sister Love

Getting organized today....tackled the task of cleaning my scrapbooking room and going through all my kids artwork. What do YOU do with your kids artwork? How much to save? What to throw out? For my pre-schooler...I took pictures of her with her art after every class so I can do a quick page and have all work stored that way.

I love this girls seriously melt my heart. I LOVE how much they love each other:-) This layout uses Teresa Collins World Traveler collection (check it out HERE) ...I love how it can be used for any theme! And that heart? So fun...I picked up some Martha Stewart micro beads from Michaels the other day (on a clear out a great deal) and I used the negative space of the heart from a CTMH heart chipboard set by cutting around what was left after I popped the heart chipboard piece out...hope that makes sense. Click on the photo to see it closer up!

Well...back to organizing I go....

This girl makes me so happy. And she is so happy...she is so fun to hang out with:-) I can not believe that soon, very soon...she will be starting kindergarten. But trying not to think about that just yet; we still have a few more weeks of summer to soak up! Hope you are enjoying yours:-)

This is another layout I did using Teresa Collin's Black and White cartridge. Love how it looks with all that colour added to it!

Teresa Collins Black and White Cartridge

I absolutely love Teresa Collins Black and White Cartridge for the Cricut Imagine. I know I will use it again and again....

The first layout features my oldest and some of her traits at 7 (ack! she is 7! where does the time go???) The next layout is of my neighbour's daughter, who I adore photographing. I have never seen a toddler more eager to sit for photos! And she is such a DOLL:-)

I hope you are having a wonderful summer! We have been soaking up all the beautiful sunshine lately...I LOVE it!
