So very thankful for Zout...

Oh yes, I sure needed that stain remover today! Just look at my daughter's face - her clothes did not fare any better ;-) We went to a nearby produce farm today to pick some berries, and we came home with very yummy rasberries and strawberries. We got to see lots of cherry trees, too, but unfortunately they were not quite ready yet. We'll definitely be going back soon, though!

I am finally remembering to drop off the layouts I did for Doris Sander's class last month. The first one was showing how specialty paper can be used in unique ways. I placed cardstock behind a KI Sheer and then cut away pieces of the cardstock to reveal some sheer windows. I love that Sass frame paper! It's hard to believe my baby girl was ever that tiny...


This next layout was to show how stickers can be used in unique ways. For this one, I covered a Heidi Swapp transparent frame with small Making Memories letter stickers. I used an opposite color to spell out my title, within the rest of the black letters. This is my little man showing off a new trick he learned at preschool this year - writing his name :-)

I am loving "summer" (hard to believe that we technically have a few days left until it is official!) so far... how about you all? We hit up our splash park this weekend, have gotten lots of play time outside, and the n'hood late night backyard soirees seem to be occuring regularly now. I'm looking forward to the next couple of months :-) Hope you guys are all having a great week!

LOVED the pictures of the kids, especially Chloe with strawberries all over her face. Also LOVED the LO you did of just Chloe when she was just a tiny baby! Hard to believe she was ever that tiny!

Gorgeous LO, I especially like the one with Noah writing his name. What a wonderful memory to have scrapped ... I have no idea when my kids first knew how to write their name...

OK, so I already saw these...and they are AWESOME! Per your mention of Doris' class, I signed up and LOVED it! Guess you now know where I saw these, huh? So much attention to detail! And I will be looking for those adorable photos to show up on a LO in the very near future...they are TOTALLY scrap worthy!

Glad you guys are having such a great start to the summer season!
