Happy Father's Day and a few projects.

     Happy Father's Day everyone!! Chris, Charlotte and I started off the day with a nice breakfast to celebrate the day with my father and stepmother. Later on just the three of us will be going to J Gilberts for a late lunch to commemorate the day for Chris.

     I haven't updated this blog in a long time so I have a ton of projects waiting to be posted. I am going to try to post a few each day to try to get up to date. To start with, here are a few projects that I completed in April. Most of the photos I chose to scrap were from last summer. I didn't take a ton of pictures but it seems like I have a lot to scrap!

     The first layout is of Charlotte and her cousins on vacation in PA. There was a brook across the street from where my family was staying and the kids all had a blast playing in it. Brings me back to when I was a child playing in the "frog pond" across the street from one of the houses I grew up in. I used mostly Jillibean Soup products on this page. Jillibean Soup and Echo Park have been my go to companies for scrapbook products lately. I LOVE their lines and the fun embellishments that go with their papers.

     The next page is a beach page. Charlotte had fun in the sand at Watch Hill Beach in RI. I had fun using Sassafras Lass products, as well as some Jillibean Soup accents.

     The last page I created was of some photos I took at one of our local farm stands. One think I LOVE about our town is you can drive a mile anywhere and find farm fresh fruits and vegetables. Again, I used some fun Jillibean Soup products to create this page.
