Last Days of Summer

Back from vacation and celebrating the last days of summer. Tomorrow Preston starts third grade. Where does the time go? It seems like just yesterday we rolled him up in a blanket and rolled him across the bed to each other - oh wait, that was Clark Griswold. We are back from our Vacation and ready for the fall.

I have a lot of vacation photographs to be scrapping. My next project, however, is a mini for James and Noriko, who bought the house in Everett. They are a delightful young couple and "need" a mini of photos of the house being built. I am starting that project tonight.

The LO that I posted today is of Seaside OR. I designed the background patterned paper using PSE and royalty free clip art from Dover Publications. Following the design of the paper, I printed it at Craft Sassy. I love having the option of designing my own paper. I then hand cut the shape of the paper and mounted it on card stock. The rest of the design is completed with embellishments.

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek! Have a great week!
