Gracie's layout

Here is Gracie's interpretation of this week's sketch challenge from the ScrapMart blog. Her layouts are all her own ideas. She is 8 years old and has been scrapping with me for about 5 years. For this page, Grace used the QK Yogurt grand alphabet, Bosskut Design-a-Flowers and fish from the Cricut Life's a Beach cartridge.

Fun Summer!!!

No pages to share today, but I want to first say thanks to all who read my blog and leave comments. A special thanks to all of you who have signed up as followers. It means so much to me to know I'm inspiring someone and that what I do is interesting enough to others that they actually want to be notified when I add a new project! THANK YOU!!!

Since Grace has been here we have been soooo busy and having so much fun. We haven't done a whole lot of scrapping yet, but we have been busy with other creative things such as repainting the little table and chairs in her room that we'll move to the scraproom when they are finished (pics coming soon), we finished painting the kitchen and mud room which looks so nice but still needs some finishing touches, repainted a shelf and decorative wood pieces to match the new living room and generally having a blast. Grace and grampa have gone fishing and plan to go again soon. I can't wait to see the pics Grace got with the disposable camera grampa got for her.
Going fishing

It's been so hot -90s!- that we haven't been outside all that much other than to get wet in the sprinkler, but we did walk to the park the other day and got some great pics to scrap.
Cooling off in the sprinkler

Fun at the park

We hope you're all having a wonderful summer, or winter for our friends in other parts of the globe! :)

Independence Day

Just a few pics you'll see in upcoming layouts.

Gracie putting out the flag on the morning of the 4th.

Lights on the hill behind our house. This is the display we see all year round, except for a couple of weeks around Easter when there is a huge cross, and at Christmas when there is a star. I don't know how big this is, but it can be seen from most anywhere in town. Behind this light display are towers, city power supply station and such.A few pics of the fireworks I got while playing with different settings on my point and shoot digital camera. Not bad for having no tripod or any fancy equipment, huh!
