Summer Break, literally!

I really haven't scrapped much this summer. I always think that I will get so much done during the summer break and I don't know why I'm so surprised every year at how busy it ends up being. Not complaining at all, I promise. The summer has been great and we've done a lot of great things such as VBS, a trip to Arizona, time at the lake, park days, pool days, lazy days. Yes, it's been a good summer and it's not quite over yet! We've got two more weeks till school starts and I'm feeling the pressure to get in as much summer as I possibly can and eager at the same time to get back to a routine! If that makes any sense?!
This week my 8 year old daughter decided she wanted to learn to use the Cricut, so of course I had to teach her! Its always been something I was hoping for - to have mother daughter crafting time! So, this is what we've been doing all weekend - literally :) And she caught on really quickly. I showed her what to do and she was off!

Like mother, like daughter! Gotta love it!

Since she caught on so quickly I soon had some time on my hands. Hmm, it's well past time I should get back into some scrapbooking so out came my photo box! I hopped onto the computer to find some inspiration and found it quickly on Sketch N Scrap.

Here's one of their sketches for the month of August:

And my take:

Sorry, the photo came out really bright, but at least that flows with the theme of the layout and all it's bright colors! The train, title, and embellishments are all from the BoBunny On The Go chipboard set. 

Well, that's all for now, hopefully it won't be so long till next time!

Thanks for stopping by!
