Slice of Summer at the Lake

Hello scrappers! I am so excited to be here today. When I first saw the Slice of Summer Papers and stickers, I wanted them right away! I love the color pallet and fun stickers and I had just the right photos in mind for the adorable paddle board and paddle.

A few summers ago, my family and I went away on vacation. One morning, Matt and the girls wanted to give paddle boarding a try. I was thinking about it, but once we got there and I saw it first hand, I had no interest to do that to myself. LOL, I think they didn’t realize how much work it would involve.

To Smile, or NOT to Smile

My life has been documented relentlessly since I was born.  Sitting on a bookshelf, the blue scrapbooks have multiplied through the years as I have experienced more and more in life. From the big moments: the first day of kindergarten, starting high school, college acceptance letter, my grandma’s last Christmas, and moving to Philadelphia; to the trifling: vacations, school dances, sporting events, family reunions, and day trips; my life is neatly remembered in those growing blue books.

Getaway Memories Scrapbooking Layout

We all love to getaway.  Whether it is for a day, a weekend, or a week-long vacation- it refreshes the body and soul.

Last summer, my husband and I took a week off of work to move both of our boys into their new homes.  One to his sophomore year of college in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and the other to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for his first year of law school.  It was an adventure to say the least.  We traveled over 3000 miles and saw parts of the country that we had never seen before.  We loved capturing photos of the road signs and countryside along the way.
