June Layout To Share

These past few weeks have been such a whirlwind of activity around here! Cub and Scout camp, swim lessons, birthday's and father's day, relaxing at the pool, a summer block party, finally having Marc off for some vacation time, two major projects for me, and lots of driving the kids all over for various things! Things finally slowed down a bit this week and I had some time to do my June layouts. I'm sharing one of my favorites today, The Baby Song.

It uses some very fun new Kaiser Craft called Party Animal. I adored the colors in this line and the super cute little animals. The journaling on this one reads: 

One afternoon back in 2006 or 2007, I was putting you Blake, down for a nap and you were very sad about it. You were crying and after a few minutes I came to see if I could help you calm down and go to sleep. When I asked if I should sing to you, you eagerly said yes! We had recently been watching Dumbo so I choose the lullaby from that movie. You instantly calmed right down and settled in for your nap. Ever since that afternoon I would sing that song when you needed comfort or to be settled down. You loved hearing the words of that song and would ask for “the baby song” all the time when you were upset. Now you are too old for that to work Blake, but every time I hear that song I think back to you at that age and all the tender moments we shared while I sang this song to you, stroked your hair, and watched as you fell asleep.

I also wanted to mention that Pebbles is having their annual Design Team Call! This has been such a fun company to design for--so generous and the team is so well managed by the super sweet Lynn Ghahary. Working with them this past year has been a true delight! You can find out more details on their blog.

Thanks for visiting today!

Hi! Yes, I am still here!

Yup--still here! I just had to give my self permission to take a short blogging break! I had so many things on my plate for a few weeks, things have been so busy! Anyhow, that's why I decided to put my blog on the back burner for a bit. Sorry to those who have said they keep checking in here and finding nothing new!

Today I have a look for you at some simple Father's Day cards I made for the Pebbles Blog:

These cards use my new favorite punch--Postage Stamp Place 'n' Punch from Creative Memories. I adore this punch--it's so versatile and cute and you can punch anywhere on your page! I love that feature and wish more punches did that!

Have a great Wednesday everyone!
