I have a few final thank you’s to get out  from orders that I had in the last couple of days of June – thank you to Sabrina and Molly.  I keep checking back at my reports to make sure it is still there.  And now I’m wondering what happens and what to expect on the trip.  I guess I will learn that soon.  The Getaway trip is at the end of September to a resort on Hilton Head Island.

Today’s share is another project that I entered in the Artisan Design Team contest.  This is my second scrapbook page – this one is an 8×8 page and features a picture of my boys that I took at Easter this year.  They were being silly together and it really makes me happy when they are together and having fun and laughing with each other.

The edges of the page are actually stamped with the French Foliage stamp set in various colors and also swiped with the ink pad.   I added the three little pool party hearts – one for each of my three boys – there are also three little butterflies that represents each of them flying off in their own directions.  As they get older they are finding themselves and where they fit in the world.  I did the main journaling on the computer but used my own handwriting for the date and the little quote – maybe that was a bad idea – I don’t have good hand writing and it isn’t very straight and even.   I really like this page and the picture of the boys.  I need to make another one so I can frame and hang it in my craft room.  That is the downside of this contest is making projects your love and giving them to Stampin’ Up! and not getting them back.

Have a good day today!  It’s a little cooler here than it was this breaking – we had two record breaking days at 106 degrees – the highest ever.  Today its only 99.  Stay cool.
