Nothing says "summer" like the fair...

~The California State Fair Makes Me Happy~

Ok, ok, about a double page layout with 9 (NINE) photos?!? Does that satisfy you?
I got eight 3"x3" Instagrams and a photo strip on this layout. 

I love the photo strips from photo booths but I usually have a hard time incorporating them into my layouts; however, this one went together easy as pie. 

Also, the new Echo Park line, Everyday Eclectic by Allison Kreft - LOVE IT! So fun to use!

Cropping RECENT strange!

~Hiking @ Horestail Falls~

Anson I didn't have the kids for July 4th this year, so we decided to hike up to Horsetail Falls off Hwy 50 on the way to South Lake Tahoe. It was a gorgeous day spent with my love and the pups!

See the Studio Calico sketch that inspired this layout here.

I should be packing...

I woke up at 6am Sunday morning and it was so hot that I couldn't go back to sleep, so I figured I may as well scrapbook (packing was out of the question, obviously...). 

I fell in love with a layout from bluestardesigns Studio Calico member gallery and threw together a quick lift from my Elmwood Park kit

All of my scrapbooking paraphernalia is packed at the moment with the exception of a few key items, including what's left of my Studio Calico the double layouts are on hold for now. Once we are moved into the new house I will have my very own Office/SCRAPBOOK ROOM (emphasis on the SCRAPBOOK ROOM park) - I cannot even express my excitement!

So for now, another one pager...a rare page of me, myself and I...

I know, I know,  I know...I shouldn't be taking pictures while driving. I couldn't help it - my earrings and dress were too cute!

I Heart Doxies

~Olivia You are my Sunshine~

I LOVE this page!!! I think this is my favorite page that I have put together from my Studio Calico Elmwood Park Kit! This page was inspired by the Studio Calico Weekly Challenge - Layering!

Nothing Like Pretty Paper & Some Dessert...

~Cropping & Cupcakes~
Anson and I took the kids camping for a week in Yosemite - camping is A LOT of work!!! Buuuuut...we are back now, and I have already done two layouts since we got back on Wednesday. I guess nature was inspiring...or maybe, I'm just procrastinating on that whole PACKING thing!!

All American

~Meeting Dinger~

During the T-Ball photos on Opening Day the Rivercats Mascot showed up to say hi to all the T-Ball players. We was giving out trading cards and posing for photos! It was pretty cool.

This page was made from the Studio Calico June Kit, Elmwood Park, for the Studio Calico Sunday Sketch Challenge.

I'm totally getting into the mists - they are totally fun and they don't have to be a huge mess if you play nice!

A Few of my Favorite Things...

~Big Man Loves Little Doxie~

I love this photo pf Nikki and Anson cuddling! Nikki has really blossomed since she came to live with us in March; she knows that we are her forever family!

This was another layout for a Studio Calico Designer Challenge. These challenges are providing so much inspiration right now!
