Summer 2013...

Today is a scrapbooking day at My Creative Time. I wanted to get a two page PL layout done, but only  managed to get one. I love my Canon Selphy to just pick images from my phone, print out, and scrapbook. At least that part is easy. It just takes me a long time to do a page. I'm not one to have it all planned out, it morphs as I go, lol! Anyway, my two pages will be highlights of our summer. Here's what I got done today.

From top left going around to the right...we took the kids to the county fair. They loved some animals and hated They even rode the ponies...shocker! Then, we took each baby to the local Dragon's baseball game. This was Karson's day. See his hat full of Dippin Dots? Then, another day we drove up to Columbus and our son and daughter in law came from Cleveland and we went to the Columbus Zoo. I packed a HUGE picnic of food and it was an amazing day. I miss seeing them very often. Don't ya love that beard?! Each baby took separate trips to the beach. Karson and his Mommy and Daddy went to Cleveland and went to Lake Erie with Bubs and Brittany. Aleida and her Mommy went up to Lake Michigan. And then lastly, Aleida watched movies in the park and Karson had breakfast at Cracker Barrel. I'll have another page of pics from fun times...we had a great summer!

Here's what I used. 

I'll save my journaling for another don't need to read all that, lol! And I'll get on finishing the other page and will post that when I'm finished with it. This snuck up on me or I would have had it finished. Anyway, hope you love my pics of some fun family times this summer.  Happy Crafting!
