Hello again my scrappy friends! Late night last night creating a LO and finished the final touches this morning! I have lots of older photos printed so when I see a challenge, especially a sketch or ingredients challenges, I rummage through my photos for some inspiration! The stars aligned for me and a page last night!
These photos are from July 4th, 2011. My husband was traveling for 4 weeks to India for work. Our kids were small, 7 and 9, and were definitely going to miss daddy. School was out so I make plans to visit family and places, arranged play dates and sleepovers, any daily outing I could think of all so that they would be so tired, they wouldn't have time to miss dad....nor would I miss my husband so much. We were so very tired from all of our activities but I don't think it helped us missing him all that much...but we made some fantastic memories!
Independence Day is always a big holiday for me and I try to instill my sense of patriotism in my children any chance I get. Family is so important and spending time celebrating our country with them is priceless. This year we went to my sisters who has a pool and pretty new quad. Such a fantastic time we had!
I'm entering my layout into the following challenges:
Lasting Memories - #331, Celebration of Love
Scrap Our Stash - February Sketch and word CUPID - I used ingredients C clip - U uchida circle punch & uni ball pen - P polka dot pp - I ink - D die cuts
