Twas the Night Before School

...the girls were in bed...not quite sleeping but for sure in bed! LOL

The last two weeks of August have been a blur of activity - it's just busy, busy, busy. Hence no blog entries! This is going to be long post with lots of pictures...so grab a cup of tea and get comfy, ok?

Today is September 1 and it is reveal day at Scrap Shotz. This month's kit is "In the Meadow" by Daisy Bucket. This kit is jam packed with goodies. It is so versatile and easy to work with - you can see my projects below! And watch in the coming weeks for my reveal of the new Piggy Tales book - I am so excited! So here are my projects to date - there is one more on my desk that I just have to put the finishing touches on!














And how will you know if I was on vacation if I didn't share a few favorite photos? :-) So here we go...

First, what we did every single day...yup, swimming, sitting by the pool and getting our Vitamin D for the year!


Of course, I have to show you how much my girls have grown - first, Danielle. Here she is on one of our walks. I love how the sun bounces off her favorite purple hat - not really purple but that is what she calls it and sometimes reasoning doesn't work on a 4 yr old! LOL


And my Madison...doesn't this picture capture the passing of the elementary school girl age? Can't you just see how the young lady in her is ready to burst to the surface?


And one of the highlights of the trip was roasting marshmallows over a bonfire. Those marshmallows never tasted better!


And perhaps, the photo that sums up our vacation the best - the bonding and solidifying of the cousins' relationship. I love this photo and it definitely goes into my favorite photos folder.


Well, that's about it for tonight! I better make lunches for tomorrow! Thanks for dropping by!
