Kayaking with the family

For my dad's birthday we gifted him with a kayaking trip on the lake. It was a new experience for my mom, dad, sister, and brother in-law. I think that everyone had fun.

Details: Paper is from the Abroad line by Studio Calico.

4th of July

This year we didn't have a burn ban, so the city had fireworks! We took my sister and brother in-law to the park to watch the fireworks. I got a few good pictures of the show.

Details: All paper and the firework embellishment are from the Red White & Blue collection by We R Memory Keepers. Sticker letters are by Making Memories.

Ladybug, Ladybug, fly away

This spring we released 2,000 ladybugs into our garden. The next morning I went out to see if any had stuck around. There were tons that we could see. 

Details: Truffle colored, stitched letters, are by Amy Tangerine. If you don't own them, you should! Papers and frame are from the On the Bright Side collection by My Mind's Eye. "Plant Kindness & Gather Love" is by Authentique.

Magic Carpet Golf

Last year, during our anniversary trip to Galveston, we played a round of miniature golf. You can see from the two pictures of us that we got very burnt while waiting for the slow pokes ahead of us to play.

Details: Orange paper and green strip are Salmon Cove from the American Crafts Campy Trails line. I'll have to look and see if I still have the paper strip from the dot paper...
