Imaginisce Summertime Challenge

The challenge for June on the Imaginisce blog is to use this picture for inspiration:

Along with these lyrics:

Summer Holiday
We're all going on a summer holiday
no more working for a week or two.
Fun and laughter on our summer holiday,
no more worries for me or you,
for a week or two.

We're going where the sun shines brightly
we're going where the sea is blue.
we've all seen it on the movies,
now let's see if it's true.

Everybody has a summer holiday
doin' things they always wanted to
So we're going on a summer holiday,
to make our dreams come true
for me and you.
for me and you.

And this is my take on it using Imaginisce Animal Crackers paper and embellishments. Alphas are from American Crafts, Bella Blvd, and Sassafrass.

Happy Hour

Last night there was a happy hour sketch over at Memorable Seasons. It began at 9pm and you had 1.5 hours to get your lo done, photographed and uploaded. I was able to finish just under the wire! I really enjoyed the process though and am completely satisfied with the layout that I was able to complete.

A picture of Madi was my inspiration and "you are" came into my head. I turned that into the complete titling of "just the way you are" and my journaling on the lo describes how I never imagined that I would be parenting one of *those* children. You know the ones who are loud and wide open and no matter what you really think the parents aren't doing anything to control it. YEP, I have one. After watching her grow (in size and personality) I realize that I don't WANT her to be quiet and reserved, she just WOULDN'T be me Madi if she was. I love her outgoing personality, the way she adapts to change, the hugs/kisses and love she has. She goes with the flow and goes at it full force. I can't wait to see where she leads me!
