Those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer....

...are almost over. I don't know about where you are, but it has been extremely hot here in North Florida. Except for a few days at the pool, we have spent most of the summer inside. You know it's hot when the grandbabies won't stay outside and play. Here are a few pics of Seth and Sion at the pool last week. Seth is almost 3 1/2 years old (next month) and Sion is 15 months. I just can't believe how fast they are growing. Seth is quite the big brother. He is teaching Sion all the things NOT to do...lol...and Sion is learning fast!!! Never a dull moment with those two.

Had to show you Sion's latest trick, or he thinks it is. He empties my scrap paper bin and hides in it. Of course all that fit's is his head...he pulls it off and says BOO! He thinks it is so cool...lol.

I have managed to get some pages completed for the album orders that I am working on. This page uses paper from Prima's First Blush collection and paper from Tim Holtz's Distressable line. The embellies are from my stash...haven't a clue where they came from.
The following pages use Prima's "First Blush" collection and stamps from Unity Stamp Co.

Here is a card that I made for a challenge over at Croppinsville. It uses Graphic 45's "Fashionista" line. This paper is gorgeous. I also did a layout with it. Gotta find the pic. Make sure you check out Allie's store, she has some really cool stuff.
And last but not least, here are my Halloween ATC's I just finished for a swap over at Scrapbookcraftingfriends.ning.com . These cute little guys were easy and fun to make. The strips are actually used dryer sheets...kinda gives him a gauzey (is that a word??) look. He is distressed with Memento and Distress Ink. The little orange pumpking is a button from "Dress It Up".

I am really looking forward to Fall...it is my favorite time of the year. Hubby and I are planning a trip back to Blue Ridge/Blairsville Ga. mountains to see the leaves turning. Plans are to go the last week of October.
Well I had better run and get something accomplished today...or maybe not...lol
Have a great week and be blessed!!
