Six Flags

This layout is a stash buster, I just used what I have here. A little bit of Studio Calico, Jenni Bowlin, Sassafras, Basic Grey and much more.

The past two years Wendy and I have taken Aidan and Ashley to Six Flags at the end of the summer.  It is a reward for summer reading.  It is so fun to watch them grow to love roller coasters.  The Mine Train and American Thunder are favorites.  They also will do the Screamin' Eagle.  Ashley is already talking about this year!

Blueberries


It's blueberry time!  We have four bushes in our garden and we picked a bowl full two weeks ago.  Last year we went to a blueberry farm just around the corner from our house and picked enough to freeze.  We enjoyed blueberries all year!

This layout is form a free kit I got for shopping at Scrapbook Generation.

Zoo Day




While at Scrapbook Generation this past weekend I picked up this zoo line by Kaiser Craft with these photos in mind.  I love when that happens because then I am inspired to get some layouts done.

Oh Dickerson Park Zoo you are a good zoo but I am so so so spoiled growing up in the St. Louis Metro area.  The St. Louis Zoo puts you to shame.  I call Dickerson Park a two hour zoo.  That's all it takes to see everything and that includes a stop at the concession stand and playing on the playground.  AND to make it worse it cost money and it's not cheap.  But we do keep going back! #smalltownproblems

St. Pat's 2014


St. Pat's is a sacred holiday in this household.  St. Patrick is the patron saint of engineers so we like to celebrate it with lots of beer...makes sense...right?  Tradition is that we head to Ann and Tim's house in Columbia where a bunch of college buddies all meet up.  THIS WAS OUR LAST YEAR (in Columbia).  Ann and Tim purchased a farm and have moved there!  So on Saturday we headed out to the farm an rode four wheelers all day.  We were blessed with a beautiful blue sky day!  The memories of Columbia will live on and so will the St. Pat's celebrations.

Sorry the blog has been quite 1) It's summer and the days are longer so we are outside more and 2) I have been working on my project life album for the month of May.  More to come.

Coving Out


Is it Summer yet?  I am so ready to be coving out!  What is coving out??? Hanging out with your best buddies in a cove preferably with your favorite beverage.  I used a Scrapbook Generation super saver May kit to complete this layout quickly! Now back to day dreaming of warmer weather.

11 years


Last weekend was National Scrapbook Day so I did my part and did some shopping at my local scrapbook store Scrapbook Generation.  I picked up this line by crate paper with these photos in mind.  Dave and I got away for one night to the casino to celebrate 11 years!!!

Dyeing Eggs


Another quick Easter layout with a Scrapbook Generation kit.  Egg dyeing is a yearly tradition...until this year.  We ran out of time this year and were out of town for Easter, I still feel a little bit bad.  The girls begged me to do it...maybe we can dye some summer eggs!
