We had a special treat on the fourth of July. One of my aunt's brought a paper lantern to send up into the sky.

We ended up teaching the little kids how to play spoons, and it was so much fun. I had to make a page about our silly day.

I am using an 8x8 album from WRMK for this trip. I was planning on scrapping this at a crop in February, but I forgot the album at home, so I decided to work on my summer pictures instead.
I used modeling paste on the bottom, and my favorite grey glitter pen once it was dry. On the top I used silver twine to make the design. And everyone's favorite Studio Calico Veneers!

My camera was strapped to my back this past summer in Door County. There are so many beautiful flowers around the little towns. I'm always snapping pictures. Usually it's either with my Canon Rebel or my iPhone. I always come home with quite the collection. I collage them together in Picasa, to get smaller prints, so I can put more on a page. Depending on the season I have pictures of all types of flowers.

One of our favorite places to visit each summer is Pine Lake. No matter how busy we are, we make an effort to go for a weekend. It is so relaxing, and my iPhone is dead, so I really relax and enjoy my family. I love to swim and be in the water, so I am very happy there.
The paper for this page is Authentique. I fussy cut all the hexagon paper by hand, and inked the edge with some weathered wood Tim Holz distress ink.
These buttons came from a jar from my late Grandma. They matched this page very well. The wood veneer is Stuido Calico and I colored it with a random marker.
This stamp set is from Close to My Heart. I ordered it from their summer catalog, and finally broke it out for this page. I anticipate some fun pages with this stamp.

We had such a fantastic summer in Door County. This is one of our absolute favorite parks. It's super hard to get to, and a big hike. We met a group of ladies part way down, who decided to unpack their picnic basket there, and start the party. We didn't know how they would ever make it back up the side of the cliff.

My Grandma's lilies are very special to me. When they sold their house this spring I went as soon as the ground was semi-thawed, and dug up as many bulbs as I could before the closing date. I took them back to my parent's yard to stay until my sister and I have houses.
This page took me forever to make a plan with. I pulled so many different papers and could not make anything work. Finally I came across a 6x6 paper pad from K and Co and it just clicked. The flowers were such different colors, but I wanted to use both of them.
The squares are 3.5 x 3.5 and have the Concord Grape Tim Holz inks around the side. I cut the title on my Silhouette. I'm thoroughly looking forward to spring, but I need a method for the bunnies. The bunny spray is horrific smelling, but the babies are so small and can get around so easily.
