A Summer fun layout!


Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful week! I can't believe we are almost half way through August already! We have a new challenge for you at Frosted Designs this week.... Animals! We would like to see animals in your card, layouts and projects! Since Nikki Sivils is our sponsor, I wanted to use some of her papers and I had the Summer line laying around. Here is my LO...

Every summer we go to Myrtle Beach for a week and we have gotten to know a few of the families that go the same week we do. My daughter, Lauren, absolutely LOVES to get smoothies down by the pool... or in this case, IN the pool!! lol!! One day while swimming, Lauren talked her dad into getting her and her friend Lexi a smoothie! What a life! Laying in the pool on a hot summer day slurping down a cold fruity drink! Does life get anybetter at 9 years old?! lol!!

We would love to see what you can create! You can use animals as the main theme or just make sure there is an animal on it somewhere (like I did - see the cute little birds?!)

We are also on our last few days of our Design Team call! We would love to see you apply!! Click HERE to go to Frosted Designs to find out more!

Robert's Blog Hop!

Hello!  I am so excited to be part of the brand new Robert's Arts & Crafts Design Team! Welcome to our Blog Hop!

We have a pretty impressive line up and I am honored to be part of this Design team! You should have arrived here from Yolie's blog. If you did not start at Robert's, click HERE so you can start from the beginning. I would love to tell you a little about myself....

I have been crafting my entire life! I grew up with a mother who always had some kind of creative project going at all times. We did everything from knitting, to cross-stitching, to sewing, to every kind of paper craft you could imagine! My mom was the person who took me to my first Creative Memories class nearly 20 years ago and I was hooked! I must admit, I am glad to see all the changes that have come to scrapbooking since the beginning!

I have an amazing husband (we just celebrated our anniversary yesterday!) and 4 wonderful kids! I have three girls (ages 21, 20 & 9) and a son (age 18). Right now we only have our youngest living at home so she is the one you will see in most of my scrapbooking layouts! I was a classroom teacher before my husband took a job in Texas last year. Since our move, I have been a stay at home mom. I am so blessed!

I thought I would share a couple of layouts with you that I completed recently...

Thank you for stopping by my blog today! Feel free to look around! When you are ready, here is the next stop on your hop.... Gaby!

Here is the order of the hop in case you get lost along the way...
