I Love "My Little Shoebox", don't you?

As you saw in my earlier post of the "Tweet Family" album I made recently, I really love the colors and graphics on the My Little Shoebox products. Not only are their papers yummy but they have some cute embellishments too. I had a stack of the journaling cards sitting on my scrap table and decided to make a quick little mini book out of them about The Things I Love. I just might add this to a bigger album I want to work on that has pics of some of the things I love and why I love them.

I sent a pic of this over to Suzy West who is their lead designer and she posted in their website
http://mylittleshoebox.typepad.com on her June 30 post. It is the last one in a long list of other adorable projects made by their design team and other fans. I am so proud to see it on their site.

I can hardly wait to see what they reveal at CHA Summer in July.

Thanks for looking...hope this inspires you to use journal spots in unusual ways !

Happy Summer Everyone ...The HEAT is here!

WOW - where did the month of June go? Around our house, June is the month to celebrate the men in our lives. My dear hubby's birthday one weekend and then Father's Day the next, kind of filled up this month. And then of course, we have had our great HEAT WAVE here in TEXAS with several 100 degree plus days. Finding ways to stay cool in this weather has also been a priority :)

This year for hubby's birthday, I surprised him by picking one of our lesser known museums...The History of Printing and organizing an outing there with some friends. It was really fun and we even got to see an exhibit on paper watermarks which was very interesting to learn about. Afterwards we all went to a really cool place to eat that is kind of an upscale but casual old ice house called Beavers. We had a fabulous time and enjoyed the evening.

Happy Birthday Sweet Hubby....I Love You So MUCH !!!!

Staying cool during this heat wave has meant I was able to fit in some scrap time. In honor of our upcoming Indpendence Day, I made this layout to showcase some of the things that are family traditions at our house....Neighborhood 4th of July Parade....Big juicy slices of Watermelon.... And of course the ALL AMERICAN MEAL - Hamburgers and Hot Dogs !!

Sure hope you and your family have a wonderful and safe 4th of July Weekend !
