I had intended to sit down and get this posted before my kids had swimming lessons this morning, but time wasn’t on my side! Its now after noon, and I’m sitting down just now. I’ve got my second load of laundry in the wash, which means its me time! Whoop!
Yesterday I mentioned that I’d share more housekeeping with you, and I intend to keep that promise. The online crop I hosted yesterday went quite well- I was pleased with the attendance and everyone that participated enjoyed themselves. This may become a regular thing- I’m thinking when I host another one, it’ll be to kick the summer off, not end it. I’m also thinking it may work best to create a group for the crop goers to join just for the event itself…posting on the event page got a little confusing for some people. Lesson learned! Other than that little hiccup, it went off without a hitch!
What are your favourite colours? Better yet, what are your favourite colours to pair together? I love a lot of colours, and can’t pick just one or two. My daughter, however, loves teal and purple together. So, when I put this layout together, I used blue and purple together because I figured she’d like it.
The white strip on the far right side of the page- its there because I made a boo boo and needed a way to cover it up. I was hoping it wouldn’t show up too much after I took a picture, but its screaming at me that its there. Oh, well, that’s life. This is another layout I created while I was away in Edmonton, and I used a sticker from CTMH Baby Girl Complements to create the title. Yes, here’s another way to create a title without using your Cricut or sticker alphas. Read more on that subject here. I used a mixture of CTMH Little Dreamer (hurry and order yours before its retired!!) and some older Blossom patterned paper. It looks so sweet together. I had to celebrate- my daughter received her first award at school and she was super duper proud of herself for finally getting one! Her sister had gotten one earlier in the year, and she was jealous. It was finally her time to shine!

By the way, I’ll have a booth at the Arts in the Park event on Wednesday evening at Rotary Park. I’ll be there from 5 PM to 9, with sign up sheets for the remaining events I have organized (I’m also working on organizing a Christmas card buffet), and gently used stamps and other items that I’d love to sell. Check out the entertainment and other vendors that will be there. There’s also a movie playing around 9 pm. I don’t know which one yet, but who doesn’t love a surprise? I’m sure it’ll be a good one! (It’ll be family friendly, because this is a family friendly event!)
