Yikes! Summer for me is almost over.....seemed to go fast! We will be leaving for vacation on Friday to visit our dear friends in Cheyenne, Wyoming, our annual trip to attend Cheyenne Frontier Days and visit the Parks family. Our family helped them moved to Cheyenne in 1993 and have visited every summer, with the exception of two, ever since. Our daughter's, the Ewy & Parks, were small when their family moved to Cheyenne....a lot has changed over the past 21 years! All four of the girls graduated from college and have jobs & families of their own. Our youngest daughter is married and has a daughter & son, their oldest daughter is married and has a daughter. Our oldest daughter is still single, as is their youngest.....both are very picky, must be why they are still single. As far as career choices, they didn't vary much, three are in education and one is a physical therapist. Our granddaughter, Ava, is going with us and will get to meet Gwendolyn, the Parks' granddaughter....very anxious that our granddaughters get to meet this trip! After we take Ava back home next weekend, I will have one week before returning to take care of Grayson.....school starts for Raegen with teacher in service on August 6! Way too soon!
I am almost finished with the layouts that I had planned to complete this summer. I only need to scrap a two page layout & a single before going back. I wish I had completed more but didn't have the mojo that I needed, just very glad to have completed most of what was on my list.
My first layout is a two pager of Christmas 2011.....not my favorite and still needs journaling, but finished.
|Supplies-BG Hey You, BG Marrakech Chamomile, BG Hey You Diecuts & Transparencies, Dies, Heidi Swapp Embellishments "Happy", & Maya Mists.|
My last layout shows how much Ava loves the Disney Pixar "Cars" movie and anything that resembled the movie! The evening I took the photos, Ava had lined up her cars on Grandpa's leg.....making sure he held very still so the cars didn't fall. Loved the little Disney Elements by EK Success. I love using sketches and found one I really like from the Creative Scrappers Blog, sketch # 273. As usual, I still need to journal, and will do it later.
