Managed to sneak away for a bit of crafty time this weekend - kind of an anniversary and Canada Day long weekend gift to myself - wink, wink ;)
Still enjoying my Recollections DP pack from Michael's. Pulled out these two papers and went to work. Starbucks sleeves made another
appearance in the shape of a butterfly (and gave me a craving for a tall, decaf, non-fat latte!!) and as did my beloved Swiss Dots embossing folder. Selecting the ribbon colour gave me grief - I think I tried at least six different colours before finally settling on the brown. Doesn't pay to craft when one is tired and therefore indecisive!
Submitting this to CR84FNs challenge this week - even though my pink isn't overly bright. Hoping the challenge police let it slide ;) Also playing along with Dynamic Duos.
Today kids and I are off to the pool for day two of their two week set of swimming lessons. Our first layer of Eau de Chlorine essence has been applied and will grow in strength throughout the following two weeks - oh joy! Always forget what good exercise swimming is! I do laps while the kids are in their 45 minute lessons, and then we hang out in the free swim area for and extra 30 to 60 minutes. Needless to say, we all sleep very deeply for two weeks LOL!
With summer here and the kids home 24/7, my stamping schedule is much more unpredictable. I'll do my best to post two or three times a week, but no guarantees. I treasure the time I have with my kids and also use summer as time to catch up on my ever growing reading list. Hopefully I can be wonder mom and do it all :)
Thanks for popping by and sharing a bit of your day with me - chlorine hugs to you all.
