A "Wild" summer layout!

Well, my scraproom is really usable again so I have jumped into summer scrapping with both feet!  I popped into Scrapbook Parade this week and picked up some really cute paper from My Little Yellow Bicycle - their summer line called "Sweet Summertime".  Turns out it is absolutely perfect for my fave summer photo ( see my last post) and I had so much fun putting this layout out together with just a few buttons and a couple of coordinating embellies from this fantastic line!

Hopefully now I have got my scrappy mojo back and I can get busy scrapping some of the great times we had on our road trip this summer!

I would love to see some of your summer layouts - post a link with your comment so we can all check out your fabulous work!!

Happy Day Everyone!

Crazy Summer Fun! ( And my fave summer paper line!)

I am so enjoying our holiday this summer and the past few days I have managed to get the camera out at the lake for some fun photos of our lakeside adventures!  Here are a few of my faves:

I am hoping to get a hold of this Bo Bunny paper for layouts from the cabin!!!

What is YOUR fave paper line for summer photos???  Leave a comment and let me know!

Happy Day Everyone!

Heritage Park Adventures

I love Heritage Park in Calgary, AB.  We haven't been there with the kids since they were little, so this year we decided to make the trip to on of my favourite places! 

It has changed a lot, but some things never change including my favourite house:

And of course the steam train!!!  Everyone loved riding on this beauty!

And what trip to the park would be complete with out a trip to the general store -

For an amazing array of CANDY!!

Lots of fun was had on the old fashioned ferris wheel:

I liked the fudge:

And the SS Moyie!

Couldn't resist this for a shot:

And at least one sign - with my very "un-smiley" kids!

Next stop -Naramata Centre!

Happy Day everyone!
