Let Summer Begin!

Yesterday was the last day of school and I have to tell you it seemed like we were the only ones left still in school even with all of our furlough days!
I now have a 7th grader and a senior in high school. Really not sure when that happened! I swear I was just in high school. With facebook now and all the re-connections I have made it really seems like I just graduated. But then I get knocked down every morning when I get out of bed and I just don't seem to pop out as fast as I use to. Them old bones are a creaking and stiff. Such a huge bummer. With school out beach days will begin! Love the beach days. I can remember having weekly beach days when I was a kid. I hope my kids remember them as fondly as I do.
At the office I had to bang out a couple of projects/layouts for Dubai believe it or not. This mini album is from our family kit. Everything in this album comes in the kit except for the ribbon. Pretty rockin if you ask me. I also used the "zutter" for the first time. My head is just swimming with endless ideas now. It took me a while to get the hang of it but once I did Oh My Heck it is pretty awesome.

Pictures are totally out of order. Blogger is being quirky today or it just might be me! My favorite page is the back cover. I added a little card on the last page. Love it!

Tomorrow if you are a local gal come and join me for my dear friend Veronica's first book signing. She has an amazing story and her book is compelling, keeps you on the edge of your seat and the most amazing example of God's grace, love and dedication to His children!
Come meet her in person and of course I will be there and not to mention we will have some yummy treats! I am so excited for her and to be on this awesome journey with her. Really you must come if you can.
Have a fantastic weekend my friends!

Honor thy Father

Is everyone as busy as I am??? The end of the school year always seems to be packed with activity after activity! Jaxon will be promoting from 6th grade next week. I can't believe we are done with Elementary School??!! When did that happen??? I think I am ready to be done and for him to be moving on. I don't know how some of you with more than two kids keep the excitement of elementary school going. Although you gotta just love those kindergartners! I mean they are just the best!
Father's day is around the corner and so I thought I would show a few cards I made for that occasion. I used mainly paper and very few embellishments. Only because I don't want to waste great embellishments on men who don't really appreciate the frou frou-ness of it all. Some do I am sure but none of my Dad's do. :0 Most of the paper is from our "Journey" line out now in Michael's and our newest Dad soft spoken and stickers. All at your local Michaels and LSS. I love love love the "Journey" line. The colors are fabulous. A little edgy and rustic. Not too much though. Go check out the whole line. It is what you see in the cards and more. Transperencies, a travel journal, soft spoke and tons more!
As you can see so very simple.

What are you doing to honor the men in your life?? Are they like my wonderful husband and want to sit in front of the t.v watching the U.S. Open? Do you BBQ? Or go out? Not sure what we are doing yet.
Still looking for a buffet or hutch or something on Craigs List to refinish. I seem to be just missing the boat on that. I don't want to spend a lot of cashola and I am thinking you have to look a lot during the day which I don't really have to the time. Something will come up and when it does I am ready with my spray paint.

Have a fantastic weekend spending time with your Dad's.
Ciao Bellas~
