Summer Fun Scrappin'

After a long and busy weekend playing with the kids, I was in need of some "mommy time." So I gave my hubby the puppy dog look, batted my eyes, and asked in my sweetest voice if he could watch the kids last night so I could scrap. And it worked!!! BEWARE! The puppy dog look does not work on all husbands so use at your own risk. And don't hate me because it works on my hubby!!!

Anyway- I managed to get 8 pages scrapped in a couple hours!! I used the Summer Fun Simply Scrappin' kit for 7 of those pages. Those kits make it so easy to scrap quickly!! The Summer Fun kit did just retire with the last catalog. But the good news is that the new catalog has the exact some kit with slightly different colors. It is called the Pina Colada Simply Scrappin' Kit. Mine will be here tomorrow!!!

I decided to scrap some pics from the girls' birthday party from last month. And I am happy to report that I am done scrapping the party!!! I used about half the Simply Scrappin kit and some white thickers from American Crafts and a little bit of striped ribbon. (I can't wait to get my big shot so I can start cutting out my own letters with chipboard and other mediums!!!)

I did a 2 page layout!!! I get asked for these a lot and it is not my normal style- but it worked great for getting a lot of the pool pictures on one layout!

I will have several more party layouts for you tomorrow!!!
Happy Stampin'!
