The Last Days of the Lazy Days of Summer

It is sad to see summer come to a close.  I am probably one of those rare Moms that actually love having their kids home from school.  I love the laid back care free schedule of summer. I love not having the strict routine, homework and early bed time of school.  So the last week we relaxed hung out with friends and enjoyed the end of our freedom!

This last picture cracks me up. Mikele my 6 almost 7 year old going on 16 was pretending to talk on her little sister's play cell phone.  She declared that she felt like a teenage. On that cheerful note we will bring our summer vacation to a close, send the kids back to school and get back to the fun of creating beautiful layouts faster simpler and easier. Stay tune and I will have art work posted soon.

Disney World Signature Book

I have been missing in action for a completely legitimate reason.  I was in DISNEY WORLD!!! My Grandparents gave us a very generous gift and took us all to Disney World for 10 days.  We had an amazing time! We of course spent some quality time with the mouse but we also made time for Sea World and Universal Studios Island of Adventure.  FYI the butterbeer was YUMMY!  You can read more about our trip on my family blog. 
   Before we left on our trip I made these little signature books/ photo albums for my 3 older kids.  I had it filled with 4x6 cards for the characters to sign and now that we are home I will fill in the rest of the pages with pictures from our trip.
   The paper is from the Zippidee paper packet and the stamp set is exclusive to the Zippidee Workshop Kit.  All of these items can be purchase online any time or you can contact me and I will order it for you.
   Now that we are home I have the usual laundry, unpacking and over 350 PICTURES to scrapbook!  That might seem overwhelming but with Studio J I can create the layouts online, duplicate them for each of my kid's albums and print! Oh and as an added teaser there are some exciting additions to Studio J coming in September 2010.  How does 1/2 price layout sound?
