Family Fun

Weekends in the with lots of running around, which we don't mind much since we are also off Monday-Friday! We are heading out to a friend's house later to have a college friends reunion. In the past these parties meant beer, bbq, campfires, and late nights. This time, think kids. We are all bringing tents and camping out in the backyard. I imagine that there will still be bbq, campfires and some beer. I am not a big camping gal so it should be interesting!

Speaking of "All-American" fun, here are two recent layouts. I made these using the amazing July Mini Kit from the Nook--love Webster's Pages and this line does not disappoint. I can't wait to see their summer releases!

With this layout, I actually used a sheet of shaped paper from Making Memories to use as a template. I love doing this--cheap and pretty! I kept it simple with white space, something I am enjoying lately. Journaling: Nathan to Christian, Christian to Ella & vice versa. You are each other's heroes. Great admiration all around.

This layout is all about the photos! Look and see how I edited one of the black and whites. I was so excited that I figured it out! The flags are the only images in color! Lots of cutting here---but isn't that what Webster's are for? Journaling: We have always tried to teach you about the American flag so you can learn respect & know all that it stands for.

Off to pack and get ready for the big weekend. Hope you enjoy yours!
