This Way To The Beach

Hello everybody! Summer is starting to wind down a bit in my household. We have been spending less time at the beach and more time gathering things needed for the new school year, new clothes, shoes etc. Soon, soccer practice will begin and nights fighting with Edward to do his homework at the kitchen table will surely drive me a little crazy, but I am looking forward to it!

Last week, I managed to pull Edward off his computer so we could spend the day at the beach. It was during the week which was great because it was just the two of us. The weather was perfect and Edward was perfectly content and relaxed, playing in the sand. I love watching him enjoy the simpler things in life. I try to take lots of photos to savor the moments I love best.

One of my all time favorite things about summer is enjoying a nice big slice of watermelon!  It just speaks SUMMER!  And, every single child loves to indulge in it as well. So, before the summer ends, we had to make sure to capture these precious moments.

Simple Borders Using Dancing Daisies!

One of my favourite things to do when Creative Memories launches a new Border Maker Cartridge is to punch out a whole pile of the new border and just play! I like to see how it can be layered, stacked, positioned on a page, etc. I just love spending some time being creative! I also love seeing which other Border Maker Cartridges coordinate nicely with it.

Today I want to share with you what came out of my playing and experimenting with the new Dancing Daisies Border Maker Cartridge. I chose to punch a pile of white border strips as a starting point and then used the Mix and Match Paper Pack and Embellishments to complete some borders.

The Brainiac with Bookworm

How exciting!!!  A collection for all of your school memories.

As you may remember, I am new to the scrapbooking part of papercrafting.  I have a pile of my kids’ school memories that need to get into books.  I am not overwhelmed by the process. I figure I will let the paper “speak” to me.  That is exactly what this Bookworm Collection did to me.  It spoke to me when picking a photo.  My daughter spoke to me as well!  When I showed her the picture that I decided on she said, “really Mom, you couldn’t have picked another picture that made me look less dorky?”.
