More layouts

I have been busy cranking out more layouts.  I am really trying to keep these simple and use up some product I have laying around.  Must finish 2015 so I can move on to more exciting things!
Canning green beans is a full day job.  All the picking, cleaning, snapping, packing and pressure cooking takes time but we love the reward of enjoying those garden green beans all year long!

This kit was from when I started scrapbooking in 2003, so glad that I finally used it!  My finished layout looks nothing like the kit but I used all the paper and embellishments so I consider that an accomplishment.  Supplies used!

A free layout kit (who am I kidding I had to spend $25 to get it for free) from Scrapbook Generation made this layout so quick to pull together.

Back in the Saddle - Scrapboooking

It has been awhile....I have been working on some projects, like Ashley's 4th grade school album.  But I need to finish up 2015 so I can get 2016 pictures printed and start working on those.  I also need to finish up Allison's Pre K school album before she moves out of Kindergarten!  So without further ado here is what I have cranked out this week.
 A favorite summer treat.  David loves this stuff and will search out their trucks to get a cone.

Nuts is no longer, it was good while it lasted.  He definitely kept the mice under control.  There was even talk of getting another outdoor farm cat this spring to help control the population.
 Crazy kiddo!

This lady is really starting to age so I wanted to get some photos of her scraped.  Trinity can't fetch sticks in the lake anymore, jump up on our bed or climb the stairs to get to Allison's tent.  I am glad I captured all of these.

Banana Seat Bikes

A quick layout with Ashley on my old banana seat bike.  Those were the best!

Just a real quick layout about David's Dad and his adventures in attending auctions.  He is now a proud owner of a street cleaning machine.  Let us know if you ever need your street cleaned, we'll be right over after we wrench on it to get it working.

A little heavy on the layouts today, but I wanted to post all my Boston layouts at once.  Last year for Easter the girls and I joined David at the beginning of business trip.  We weren't there for very long but we packed in a lot of site seeing.  My favorite was the USS Constitution, it was being prepared to go into dry dock so it was missing it's masts and the insides had been cleared.  I want to go back when it is fully refurbished so we can see it in all it's glory, what a great piece of history.

Lake of the Ozarks Shootout

We look forward to the shoot out every year, we are lucky that the mouth of our cove is the finish line.  So we basically get front row seats and not all the crowds.  There are always fast boats, high flying planes, friends and good times.

I used a layout sketch from Scrapbook Generation that was a Freebie Friday.  It really made this layout come together quick.

Girls Weekend

Girls weekends are always the best and so worth the time and effort it takes to bring five girls that all live in different cities together!  It gets harder and harder to do this because of all our busy schedules. But these ladies are the best because we make it work!  Love them!
