You will not want to miss out. There are MANY MANY chances to win!
Our theme for this blog hop is SWEET SUMMERTIME!! The members of our design team will all be sharing fantastic summer projects, stories, tips or ideas for keeping cool and having fun in the summer with a baby along.
Here are a few things I would like to share...
Summer here in Alaska has been pretty much of a let down this year. In fact, I think we are on 30 days straight of rain. No kidding. I think we got all of our sunshine in the end of May! BUT, there were a COUPLE days that we were blessed with sunshine...and it was actually warm enough to pull out the pool! Hooray!
This next layout is of my two kidlets being themselves in the backyard pool. I actually did get some better shots of them, but this picture is by far my favorite. I love the no-don't-splash-me-oh-wait-you-are-so-I'll-stick-out-my-tongue expression on Bekah's face. And of course, Gavin has to come back with an AHHHHHAAAAAAA-I-got-you look of his own.
My kids make me laugh :)
I used Bo Bunny paper here and the round accent is a design from the paper that I hand cut out and stitched and curled up the edges for dimension. I love how bright and cheery this paper is!
The end of our summer is nearing...and the best end to it is the Alaska State Fair!! For two weeks we have rides, games, good food, lumberjacks, good food, produce, and good food! Oh, and good food! :)
This next layout is of Gavin and Daddy at the fair two years ago. He LOVED the carousel. Since he is a big boy of 5 years old now, I don't think this ride will be at the top of his list. Bekah, maybe.
I have a new obsession with banners. I used paper from The Girl's Paperie on this one. I really love this line!! And the banner paper made it so easy to just cut out my banner pieces!
I hope you enjoyed visiting my blog today! One last thing before you venture on to the next person...I am having a give-away here on my blog! My first one ever, too :)
