Moon Doggie Layout

This was so much fun, these papers are AWESOME!

Back Country - Double Page Layouts

So today, since I had ALOT of photos to scrap, I thought I would use Jeanette Lyntons' Imagine book. It is such a great resource, you just pick your favorite sketch that suits your photos, and away you go. She has great ideas and cutting instructions!
This first layout, I used the Imagine book - Supporting Cast layout. I used Level 2 Backcountry paper pack and stickease. Also, with quick results, I used the color ready alphabets and dabbed them with the coordinating ink. No wonder Close To My Hearts moto is FASTER, SIMPER, EASIER! In this layout, I also used the Imagine book - Dynamic Duo layout and all the same materials as the above layout.

Again, same materials.....I used the Cherish book - "Rise to the occassion" This also shows you how much you can create with just one Level 2 paper pack and Level 2 stickease...I still have alot of paper left too!

Happy Canada Day

July 1st is one of my favorite holidays. It's a day that our entire community comes together to celebrate being Canadian.....we are proud to be Canadian!!!!!! We start the day with a pancake breakfast, then a parade. This year we had a jet from CFB Cold Lake do a fly by, yikes, that was loud!
After the parade, everyone gathers up by the arena for great outdoor entertainment and visiting. In the afternoon there was a strong man competition and farm challenge.
In the evening there was a Lakeland Idol singing competition, and then, my favorite, the fireworks! What a great day!

Our girls tied for 1st place in the bicycle parade.
