Catch Up

I have a post up at the Scrapbook Sussies blog, and another project over at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge blog... It has been a busy Friday!
We had to cut short our camping vacation due to the stomach bug. That is one thing that does not mix with the wilderness at all! And, since then, this bug hasn't been wanting to leave our house! Hopefully the weekend will put an end to all that (plus a big can of Lysol ;) Have a great weekend!

Some Like it Hot

The heat was getting to me, so it was time for our second annual Flagstaff camping vacation...And don't ya know even the campgrounds have wi-fi these days. Although I did forget to bring my card reader so no pictures for now :( We are camping by a tepee, very cool!

I did want to share that the Elle's Studio gallery is up for this month, go check it out!!

Park Play

We went to the train park on Saturday morning. It was overcast, but it made for a little bit more humidity than usual. Audrey saw the carousel and was running to hop on it. She hasn't met a carousel she hasn't liked :) A few weeks ago I won a pair of cutey booty bottoms (they are the sweetest, and the packaging is awesome!) from Pluff Mudd Studio. Make sure to become a follower, she always has fun giveaways and cute tips. Been working on some different crafts, and got to scrap with lots of fun people over the weekend...always nice to get out of the house once in a while!

July Scrapbook Sussies Kit

The Scrapbook Sussies July kit was perfect for many events that I have been wanting to document.

My grandma gave me a ton of pictures that I have been wanting to scrap. My dad was born in South America, and lived there for quite a while. I love this picture with his sister. I haven't really done much heritage scrapbooking, but would like to do more!

Harmonia playing has been really popular around the house. It is so funny seeing them play the blues ;)

We started swim lessons for the kids, and it has been quite the hit. Audrey tries to bring snuggy bear EVERYWHERE!

The summer heat has gotten us into playing board games inside. Candy Land can get intense when playing against a four year old.

I have a couple more layouts, hopefully can get them photographed this afternoon to share for tommorow... It is almost the weekend, yay!
