Well obviously the summer time is not a great time to try and be a faithful blogger! lol!  I can honestly say it has been a wonderful summer.  Lots of relaxing and enjoying the swimming pool.  The kids have been busy with various activities but not too busy!! 

With summer slowly coming to an end its time to think of  ideas for upcoming projects and possibly some class ideas.  I have recently re-activated with Stampin' UP so am busy going through the catalogue!  Sometimes I swear that catalogues for crafters are better than the Sears Christmas Wish Book for children!!! 

I have managed to work on a few things over the summer.  I am still in love with making mini albums with beautiful papers but not necessarily for any particular picture.  It really is a great way to use papers that I have been "collecting" afraid to use because I'm waiting for the "perfect project". . . .HELLO??? I will be old and completely grey before that happens!  You really can't be afraid to use your stash of goodies. . . .especially when you are constantly accumulating new ones!!  I write this as I am patiently waiting for a 13lb box of goodies to arrive from Melissa  http://www.melissasamuels.net/store/index.php?route=common/home!!!  I haven't dared mention to her that I have more in the cart! LOL!

I am posting a picture of a canvas project I made today for a lovely young lady that once upon a time many years ago I had the privilege of babysitting. . . now she looks after my girls!!  She is heading off to college and we are going to miss her like crazy!
