Summer is comming FAST!

Working with the papers I was given for my June Creative Team assignment for Scrapbook Doodle reminded me that summer was fast approaching.
It has been so hot outside and staying inside and creating was just the ticket. Don't get me wrong I was still chasing andrew, cooking dinner, but after all went to bed... I had lots of fun!
School is almost over for Andrew and summer is sitting here ready to start!

Tags with Andrew

Andrew sat down with me the other night while I was watching a Tim Holtz Demo on the computer. It is had to believe that he sat through the whole demo and was so interested in it.
He asked if he could make one. I had been wanting to try too so while he watched it again and made a "list" of the things we needed I dug them out with enough tags for both of us to give it a shot.
I can not believe how easy they were. What was even worse.. one of the tags we did you can't tell his from mine.. lol. I guess that I shouldn't say worse.. I was just surprised at how well he did. He even corrected me on a few of my "faults".
I posted our creations above. His are the set of two in the picture and mine are the set of three.
I was so proud of what he created.
Now I fear, he will be into my scrap supplies more often. He has found "that man" as he calls him on You Tube and has been watching all of his demos! I have created a mad man!

Playing with Scrapbook Supplies

Last night I sat down to do my "Day in a Life" album page for May.

The 19th this month happened to be a Tuesday so I couldn't resist scrapping Andrew's favorite weekly holiday. I was itching to play with the new Cosmo Cricket Early bird and play with some Tim Holtz product so I dug in and had some fun.

I used my QK Silhouette Digital cutter for the lettering and then masked on the tag with the Tim Holtz Grunge Mask. I had a blast. The Chipboard frame was actully an old Scrapworks one I had laying around from Christmas and I added those cute eating utensil chipboards that went with the new Cosmo papers. I added Rusty Pickle Buttons and monthly rubons and was done! I really had a lot of fun doing this months.

Today I will spend paying insurance bills (Yikes! dont' ever have a teenage driver.. it will kill you pocketbook!), picking up around the house , and then hopefully working on some more assignments!

Now I must go out and fill the wading pool.. I need to have it ready for Andrew and the dogs!

It's going to be a hot one!

Yes! It is going to be a hot one!.... Summer that is!
It has been so hot and humid the past few days here. I finally bit the bullet so to speak and turned on our air conditioner. We are filling Andrew's wading pool daily. I don't know who is enjoying it more Andrew or the dogs!
I was playing around with some scraps and some older pictures from last year and created these 6 x 12's. I enjoy working with this size. It is perfect for scraps and pictures that are not quite perfect.
I am off to water the garden and see how my tomatoes, and peppers are doing. I picked the peas and the spinach yesterday. It should not be long until I can also harvest the radishes and carrots.
Andrew has only a couple of weeks of school to go. Yikes! Summer vacation is almost here!

Here Comes the Rain?

Today I uploaded my May Design Team Assignments for Rusty Pickle. I really had a lot of fun playint with these. I loved the orange and black together! You know I rarely have done layouts of myself but this one was actually a lot of fun to do!!
It is susposed to rain heavy this evening and then again tomorrow morning so I cancelled the garage sale. I wil just move it forward a week or so. We really need the rain. My garden would love the water! Don't get me wrong I water it all the time but there is something about a nice warm rain.
Speaking of gardens... mine is comming along nicely. I even saw a small pea pod in the pea vines today. My peppers, tomatoes, and strawberries, along with the peas are blooming. My spinach, beans, and carrots are looking well too! Andrwe planted some corn at school in a pot and brought it home so I put it in next to our cucumbers. If they keep growing we will have three whole stalks of corn.. LOL! YAY!
Well I just wanted to show ya'll the layouts! I hope to get some more done this weekend.. durning the rain???!!
