Summer is Almost Gone!

YIKES! We have one more full week before the kids go back to school and I go back to work! Where did the summer go? Little Miss informed me that "we didn't even get to do anything fun yet!" Nice. How soon we forget trips to Build a Bear, summer movies, a million dips in the pool, lunches out, ceramic painting, fireworks, baking and the trillion other summer type activities we did. Oh well, there's always next year--HA! The craziest part about summer being over and school starting up is how much closer to the holidays we are! If I REALLY wanted to do lots of cool handmade stuff, I would be doing it now right? Well, guess what? I DID actually start some holiday crafting! I made this Fall frame using Therm O Web i Craft dots and Glitter Dust:
If you would like to see how I made those tissue paper flowers, I have a brief tutorial up on the Therm O Web blog.
And this week, Imaginisce is revealing its adorable Christmas collection, called Christmas Cheer! Today on the Imaginisce blog you can see my ornaments...
and layout:
Every day this week Imaginisce designers are showcasing this adorable line and if you comment all week long you have a chance to win the collection!
Also this week, speaking of back to school, Scrapbook.com has released its August Kit called Pencil Lead. It is a very cool kit with lots of Jenni Bowlin and the cutest Smash clips from K&Company. 
One thing I really liked about this kit was that, while I was able to use it on the preschool page above, it had a very sophisticated feel and could be used on school themed layouts for any age.
I've got lots more to share, so I will definitely be back again tomorrow!
Have a great night!
