Fun at the Splash Pad

Last week we headed downtown to the splash pad with some friends.

Tyler REALLY enjoyed himself!

Kalen on the other hand…


didn’t want to let go of her daddy. And he couldn’t get his arm wet.

We did manage to get her in once or twice. She ran right out!


And was NOT too happy with us!


Other than that, we all had a lot of fun and it was a good way to cool off on a hot summer afternoon!

Have you heard of this new kit club?


Sweet Peach Crop Shop is a super fun kit club that offers 2 kits each month. The Sweet Featured Kit and the Juicy Themed Kit! They are both filled with a bunch of coordinating papers and goodies!!

I have been asked to be the guest designer for their August kit (and beyond). I am SUPER excited! Go check out the design team page or blog to find my bio. I just got my August kit in the mail and it’s beautiful! I can’t wait to start scrapbooking!

Scrap Camp

Well, Scrapfriendy’s Summer Camp is still going on, and I’ve made it to week #6! Here are a few of my layouts.

Week #4 – H2O – The layout had to have some paint or mist splashed on to it, be about water, have paper cut into waves, and have a clear element.

Water Baby

Week #5 – Mess Hall Duty – The layout had to have 2 pieces of “trash” on it. Something that you normally would have thrown away.

One Year(my trash was the cardboard, twill, and flowers punched out of clear packaging)

I did a Bonus Challenge that was called Play. The layout had to be about someone playing outside and you had to add some chipboard.


I just love these pictures of Daddy and Tyler and knew they were perfect for this challenge! Tyler even helped me mist the colors onto the background paper!

I’m looking forward to getting week #6 done, and a few more bonus challenges!

Vacation in Michigan

We had a great family vacation up in Michigan over the 4th of July! We had a lot to do while we were up there and I didn’t take too many pictures. Surprise, I know! I was just enjoying spending time with the kids and family! Here are a few of the pictures I did take.

Just Imported

Some of the highlights: Fishing at the trout farm, beach volleyball, fireworks, feeding the ducks, cooking dinner on the campfire, the Hands On Museum, finding Petoskey rocks, boating, and Cedar Point!

I hope you all are enjoying your summer as much as we are!
