It's that time again....

I have been working with the new JBS Mercantile kit for July and have a couple layouts done so far! How bout a couple sneaky peeks?? :)



And I am continuing to cut paper and be inspired! The papercrafting kit is FULL of such beautiful papers and of course the embellishments that JBS has provided are soo inspiring as well. I can't wait for the big reveal!

And of course I have been busy with the kids and the pool and the games and the non stop rain that we seem to be getting hit with. Pictures tell the story best, right? These first two pictures were edited in Picnik, one of my favorite online editing places.


For the girls picture I just used the "orton-ish" feature and toned it down a bit, then added some text. For the picture of Kamy sitting on the curb waiting for the ice cream truck, I did the focal black and white setting as well as the orton-ish feature. I just love picnik! It's free and has soo many fun things to try!

As for the rain, we could certainly do WITHOUT right now. Last night the sirens in town went off twice and sent us scampering to the basement for a bit...not a pleasant experience withthree kids, but they are real troopers when it comes to bad weather! They stay relatively calm and treat it like an adventure. After all the rain last night the streets in town were full to the brim....



I am officially ready to say I am sick of the rain!!!!
