Another pocket page, perfect to slip a photo in or a journal box.
A journal box and a tiny tag.
<--last 2 pages.
I did not stamp this one or add any extras. I wanted my class to see how simple it is to make a complete album in a VERY short time.

Hailey is doing well, it is hard to keep her from running around and getting herself to coughing again. Since this was her first Asthma attack we don't know what caused it or if it will happen again. God has been with us!!! We are going to recover for a couple of days and then I will be back. LOL
SBS and Angels- I will catch up with you soon.
Please keep Hailey bug in your prayers.
Also all of the other sick children there and there families.

He loves to make cards for others and always tries to include everything that is their "favorite" on his cards. (As in everything on one card. LOL) He has his own little space in my studio to store his supplies. He knows which cardstock he can use and which ones are mommy's. He is becoming quit good with his little safety scissors, and he can glue with the best of them.He also knows that once the card is complete we need to "take a picture now mommy." LOL
The decorations hanging from my shelves are Hunter's creations. In the last picture he is holding the Threading Water punch we like to use.

I hope you are enjoying the last of the "lazy" days of summer. Can you believe school starts in less than 2 weeks! (I know some eager students have already gone back.) YIKES!!
This card uses two of my current favorites-The Miss Moxie Soar With It Collection and An'udder Birthday stamp set. (Ok, I lied- 3 of my favorites- I have to add coloring with Prismacolor Pencils and OMS. LOL) The cardstock and ribbon are also apart of the Miss Moxie collection. The swirls (Curls and Swirls) are stamped in L'Amore Red.
**Good news on mom's tests**
**Beautiful weather in Central Ohio**
**It's the weekend**

The left side is scored and adhered on the inside, the card opens like a book. (You know what I am trying to say? LOL) The designer paper (Reece) is on the "spine". The front of the card was embossed with the Scor-pal, and then stamped with Aspen Mist Versamagic chalk ink. The stamp is from the Curls and swirls set. The main image (from Vintage Christmas) was matted using the cardstock from the Reece collection. The scrappers floss was tied on the chocolate ribbon and then wrapped around my paper piercer to form curlicues.
Kiddos are up, so I need to run.

This was the first "real" State fair for the kids- and they had a blast!! There is nothing like seeing the state fair through the eyes of a child!! Hailey loves the animals, walking through the barns she was making the animals sounds too. (The girl does not have one quiet bone in her body. LOL) She was just as loud as the critters. I think her favorite was the petting zoo. She squealed (very loudly) when she touched each animal.
Hunter's favorite part was the giant slide. He climbed all the way to the top with daddy, and then the fun began. He was smiling from ear to ear the whole way down, and then once they came to a stop at the bottom he let out a happy scream. He was so funny!!
Daddy's favorite part is always the food!! A part of being a fair judge is being fed in the Governor's Building. It is air conditioned, cloth tablecloths and napkins, and incredible food. This year they served a mixed salad with tons of veggies, cooked carrots, scalloped potatoes, Rib eye steaks and Pineapple glazed ham. It was so good!! For dessert was a chunk of chocolate cake- as smooth as silk!! Daddy was too full after dinner to get any of the "fair food". (On our way to the van we did get a funnel cake and huge ice cold lemonade!)
My favorite part is taking pictures to scrapbook. I also love the sights, sounds, smells (well, most of them LOL) tastes and all the different things to touch.
We had two very tired kiddos last night. You know- the tired in a good way- kind of tired.
