I've had a busy weekend and really wanted to do some crafting but alas, the only project I have been able to finish is a layout for a sketch challenge on the Cricut Circle blog.
The recipe for the layout...
Stampin' up papers
Stickles in the pink boarder flowers
K and Company bling in individual prima flowers
ribbon from dollar spot at Joanne's
boarder/edge punch - fiskars
large paper yellow flowers cut with fiskars punch
Family fun and pink floral boarder from Life's a Beach with the Cricut.
This was a emotional layout for me to do. The journal says " It is tradition to journey to Grandma Marjie's home for a summer day of fun. Mom (Grandma Barb) meets us and the 4 generations (GGma Marjoie, Gma Barb, Mom-me, Bobby, Emily and Billy) enjoy a day at the pool."
For years my three kids and I did this and then when my grandmother moved out of her townhouse with the pool we just made sure we spent a summer day visiting in Senior housing. Sadly this past summer (July 2010) Grandma passed away. I am so glad I have some photos to scrap the happy family memories!
