#1. This weekend is our town's annual Corn & Apple Festival. Which for us, means a weekend of rides, lots of walking to check out all the booths, food and fun! It's so great, too, because we live 1.5 blocks away from the festival, which means we can come home and take a break when we need to and then head back when we're ready for more!
#2. For me, it's also the hunt for great photos! The photo at the opening of this post is one of my very favourites that I've taken at the C&A (in 2007). And here's my second favourite, taken in 2006:
(Okay, how adorable are Jonah and Sage! Did I appreciate how cute they were back then? I'm sure I did!)
#3. Now, while I don't subscribe to the scrapbooking craziness of being "caught up" with my photos, I do like to stay current within the last year. I realized past weekend that I still hadn't scrapped my Corn & Apple photos from 2010, so I got them done this week (I ♥ summer vacation!)
Here's the first one, documenting Austin as a ride fiend:
I used Studio Calico patterned paper, Bazzill cardstock, Scenic Route letter stickers and Papertrey Ink Seeing Stars dies.
#4. This next layout features some favourite photos that I took of Sage.
Sometimes I find her clothes challenging to scrapbook (purple and brown?), but I managed to find some SU! patterned paper in my stash and I think I made it work okay. I used sketch 125 at Got Sketch? and my new punch that I got for my birthday from my friend, Susan.
I also used some American Crafts cardstock, October Afternoon letter stickers and Papertrey Ink goodies (Mordern Wood Mats & Gratitude Journal stamps & Love Lives Here die).
#5. And one last layout. I've been wanting to try to make a banner like this for a while. I decided to use my PTI Triangle dies to cut out the bottom of each one for a uniform look.
I used Making Memories, Crate Paper, SU!, SEI and Lily Bee patterned paper & Lily Bee letter stickers.
I apologize if this song gets stuck in your head for the rest of the day! ;)
Thanks for looking!
