Summer Fun!

So, I stopped subscribbing to scrapbook magazines to save some money.  Yeah.  I can't seem to stop picking up each issue when it comes out at the store.  LOL  It is an addiction, I tell you! 

I love to look at blogs and even online scrapbook magazines, but there is just something about the feel of  paper in my hands.  Since I can't seem to stop buying them, at least I can start using them more.  :)  I pulled out my recent issue of Sccrapbooks ect. and found a great layout on page 16.  I don't generally do a lot of circles, but this seemed to be a great time to start.  Here is my version:

It was fun mixing up the patterened paper.  Usually I over think it.  This time I just started cutting.  I love it!

My sweet girl pulled out one of my card magazine to see about making a card.  She like to copy them EXACTLY and needs a bit of help with the cutting.  Then she adds her own flair to it..."just one more thing, mamma, then it will be perfect!".

Here is her take on a card she loved.  I enjoy watching her process and her new facination with texture on a card.

Off to make some more layouts and cards...hopefully with my girl!
