Summer is on a Roll

Yikes, here comes the summer train rumbling through. It has been a full week since I have posted, I have photos backed up waiting to be edited, layouts needing to be completed, deadlines and assignments to do and cleaning to be done before my Dad comes to town on Thursday. But summer schedule has taken hold. Swimming, movies, going to the gym. Yes, there have already been lots of sibling arguments and we are less than 2 weeks in! But there has also been lots of fun too. We baked mini cupcakes from scratch. We made several trips to the dollar store for craft supplies and immediately used up said supplies! But the 2 pieces of big news... My girlie lost her first tooth!

 She has another one well on it's way out too! Sheesh, I totally remember the weeks of sleepless nights when she was teething and these teeth were growing in as if it were yesterday! Of course the tooth fairy paid her a visit last night ;)

And in just as big news, she passed her first Karate test to move up from a white belt to a high white belt. We were so proud of her and she was SO cute:
As you can see she was right in the middle of a hiiiiiiii......
I have been busy playing with the June Scrapbook Circle kit. It is called Garden Party and, yes, you NEED it. lol! The papers are a gorgeous mix of Pink Paislee, Girls' Paperie and Jillibean Soup. It includes the fabulous Fancy Pants filter flowers and my personal favorite...the Studio Calico Wood Veneer butterflies. I would buy this kit for the butterflies alone. Did you know they are already discontinued and most places are out of stock?? Fortunately the rest of the kit is also gorgeous and worth every penny! 
There is a fun card sketch contest happening on the Scrapbook Circle blog. Use this sketch:
link your take to THIS POST, and you are in the running for a Crate Paper Neighborhood collection kit! Easy peasy, right? Here is my take on the sketch:
And here is a layout that was part of the Lifting You series HERE:
I cut out a few clouds from the Jillibean paper to make a journal list:
I popped up the wood veneer butterfly on a rolled up Zot so it looks like the butterfly is flying off the page and rolled a tin strip of paper like you would for paper quilling for the butterfly trail:
I have three more layouts to share and more in the kit to create even further! I am telling you the Scrapbook Circle kits are PACKED with goodies! Hope you are having a great week and hope to be back in a few days   rather than another week! :)
