Such a fun summer in my neck of the woods! On the paper crafting goodness front, Twisted Tuesday Challenges has a new challenge up and running.
The Challenge: Include some sort of "school supply item(s)" in your creation.
The Twist: Leave a lot of white space on your creation
Here's my take:
|Patterned paper: various scraps, MME; large pencil sticker: American Crafts; embossing folder: Sizzix; book stack/crayon stickers: Jolee's; star frame stickers: Unknown; letter stickers: Making Memories;|
One of the things I LOVE about taking this time to stay at home and be there for my family is the opportunity I get to volunteer at my daughters' school. I have the chance to read with them, see them with their friends, meet many of their school friends and teachers and contribute to their school environment.
I used a colour scheme (and challenge #67) from the folks over at Color Me Scrappy
I also used a sketch over at the Page Maps blog.
On the family front, I finally got a camping trip in this summer despite my hubby's propensity AGAINST camping. Admittedly it was more of a "glamping" type of excursion as we weren't really roughing it...merely sleeping in a tent accompanied with the rest of the comforts of home: indoor plumbing, full kitchen facilities, a pool and a nearby lake to go canoeing in. That's what you get when you camp with some friends on their parents' farm. Good times!!! (Even though we experienced a freak hail storm in the afternoon on the first day! It was unlike anything I've ever experienced!) Our tent didn't hold up so well after being pelted by the torrential rain and the subsequent hail. Water leaked in and we were forced to sleep in the house the first night (hard life, I know!) :)
Anyways, the second night was much nicer and cool but definitely comfortable tent-sleeping weather. the family had a great time! Here's to more of the same!
I would also like to submit the layout to the following blogs:
Scrap Our Stash Challenge #17: Use a selfie AND a premade/packaged frame (star frames)
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes
Scrap it Girl: August Challenge: Arrows/Numbers (numbers on background embossing)
