Doing a little celebrating (sorry for the mouthful of cupcake) . . .
Having some fun times with friends . . .
Playing at the park . . .
Walking in the middle of the bay on a sand bar . . .
And boating with daddy . . .
We are here until Sunday & then home for a week only to turn back around & be here again for another week with more family. I feel as if we have traveled all summer but after this next trip I only have one more vacation on the docket :) It is making time go by very quickly & not allowing me much time to worry about the pregnancy, which is good :) I go into the specialist next Monday for another sonogram and am hoping all will be fine . . . it has been 5 weeks since the last one & being that I know (from past experience) how quickly things can go wrong in a matter of weeks, well I worry - of course being busy & traveling has kept that to a minimum recently. I will keep you all posted :)
On to the scrappy :) I have been away so no scrapping has happened this week but I do have something to share. Pam, from My Creative Scrapbook sent me this fabulous kit to work with for July - just love the bright summer colors & the adorable embellishments!!
Here is my July sketch for MCS . . .
And my take on it using the main kit . . .
A quick close-up of the title work - do you see these cute flip-flops (these are in the kit!!!!)????
Now, don't get me wrong, I LOVE My Creative Scrapbook & I LOVE Magpie Club & I LOVE The Scrap Room - I have been with all 3 for quite a while now & Pam & Tara & Tammy are just fabulous!!! But that doesn't me I don't still shop the kit clubs out there - a girl can never have enough scrapbook supplies - right??? I mentioned the other day that I'd share some of these with everyone so here goes (BTW - I have no affiliation with any of these other than being just a member). I have been a long time subscriber of Studio Calico - I just love their kits but especially the products they produce themselves - I think most people know about them though :) Within the past year I also have purchased several kits from Noel Mignon - if you haven't checked them out - seriously do - they are JAM-PACKED!!! Opening one of her kits is like Christmas - so much paper & so many little embellies - LOVE them. They are expensive but are totally worth every penny - I promise!! The sneaks of her upcoming August kit (Office Party) look fabulous - can't wait!!! Now recently I found two more clubs - maybe you have heard of them, maybe not, but definitely check them out. First up - Polka Dot Whimsy. Really such a fab mix of goodies in these kits - tons of embellies & trims. I am lovin' the July main kit Cape Cod & the Liberty Shores add-on kit - just debating on whether or not to buy . . . I will admit it took a really long time to get the June kit (which was awesome by the way) but the owner shared she was ill so no problem :) It was totally worth the wait anyway & she included a HUGE goodie bag with the kit as an apology which was totally sweet :) The other club - Midnight Rooster. First off, I just love the name - not sure why - but I do :) The kits are beautiful & the handmade items go above & beyond your typical handmade goodies in a kit. Check out June's kit here - see the cute little banner pieces - totally handmade out of Fimo clay - love it!!! She always includes a large square of awesome fabric in the kit - how fab is that?? Anyways - just thought I'd share - from one scrapbook supply addict to another - enjoy :)
Psst . . . I'd head over HERE tomorrow morning - you may see a little bit more of what I have been working on these days :)
Have a fab late night Monday/ Tuesday!!
ttyl - julie :)
