Hello everyone it's been a crazy summer and this past week has been amazing first off there is a new addition to the family a new baby boy our first great nephew and another addition was announced on Sunday another boy due December 16 we can't wait and last but most exciting our niece got married on Saturday a beautiful wedding on the coast of Moneray and the weather was perfect. To say the least I did'nt think I'd make my deadline, but here it is!!!

This is our family dog Olfelia also known as Ollie. We adopted her six years ago from a shelter it was love at first sight especially for our son Christopher. She is our best friend, a safe haven on a bad day the best backseat driver, and a great walking compaion even if she is the one walking me boy can she pull when she wants to go!!!!

So in honor of my baby girl may we have many more walks, wet kisses and wagging tail years to come.

I used Nate's ABC cartridge
brown cardstock
12x12 DCWV
Buttons from Oriental Trading
Doggy paws boarder from colorbok paper

I cut my doggy at 3.50 and embossed her collar with baby blue and also embossed the MY GIRL in blue matted my photo on lime green DCWV 4x5
I also embossed the doggy paws cutouts

WOW my first blog hop

The pictures I chose are of my son David he was in the fifth grade and in a few weeks he will be 18 how time flies I just remember as I worked on this layout how much of a child and so innocent he was and how much the world has changed since then. No worries no stress for this little boy in the photos. David could'nt wait for fifth grade just because of the four day field trip to Point Bonita which is on the other side of the Golden Gate only the ''Big Fifth Graders'' are able to participate in this trip night hiking, ocean beach walks, learning all about the earth and her nature. The kids were to pick out a nickname and he choose Little Lion I think it was because he thought our group leader was just to cool to be a girl and he caught a little crush on her name was Lisa Lion.

My supplies were from My Big Ideas paper 12x12
a mini seahorse punch
emblishments from Joilees and Hedi Swapp

I hope everyone enjoys my photos and layout

Christmas in July

Happy Friday everyone

Needless to say this July project was a challenge for me I had to think about it for a few days the 90 degree Califorina heat sure did'nt help :) I am a summer girl at heart so taking a walk to clear my head and get my creative juices going (LOL) I thought about the little critters that not only are around during my walk but the same ones that we enjoy during the winter and this is my layout that I came up with!!!! Using my Winter Frolic cartridge I choose the field mouse,and the beaver, I then added my winter elements Frosty, Mr. Penquin, a reindeer and of course the reason we celebrate this day the baby Jesus.

My cuts were at 3.50 using all paper by Recollections we were told to use pink,blak,white and one color of our choice I picked brown and of course there were little bits of color to bring my elements to life I also added a few glitter colors on some of my cutouts. I hope you all like it. Remember the blog hop tomorrow can't wait to see everyones Summer Fun projects!!!!

Almost the week-end

Hello happy day after. Lots of fire works last night the family dog didn't like the festivities as much as everyone else enjoyed them. It was a quite day here at home a little girl time the men went camping for the holiday so i just enjoyed my time being the only girl in a house of young men it was and still is a relaxing time. I was able to finish my July project now just waiting on some pictures a double page layout is my plan for the design. The challenge was to use red, white and blue and my choice of another color.This is what i came up with.

I used my cricut craft room and choose the cricut font using the basic style and welded and cut at 1.3 my embellishments were cut at 3.5 using the Pack Your Bags design. Hope everyone can get some summer time inspiration from my page. Enjoy the rest of your summer and talk to everyone soon
