Summer's Here!

Baseball season is finally over and perhaps my weekends and evenings will become less frantic (it tough being a coach's wife!). We finished the season with the party at our house last Sunday - complete with a dunking tank to get the coaches (and the kids) all wet. You can see my husband here about to take the plunge.

This week has been busy too, getting ready for GASC in Chantilly this weekend and finishing the Design Team submission for this month. For GASC, Scrapbooks Plus has two make-and-takes. One designed by Louise that is available at the conference. It's a cute tag using Coredinations card stock. I have incorporated it into a one page layout entitled "Endless Summer" that will be on display at the conference with color instructions (and product from Bo Bunny and American Crafts) on how to create it at the store.

The other is a make-and-take designed by Lisa that will be available at the store only. It's a cute beach-themed pocket made from cardstock and Creative Imaginations paper - complete with a palm tree and little crab on the sand. I have designed a two page, beach layout that incorporates the pocket with matching papers and embellishments from Creative Imaginations. You'll find instuctions for that layout at the store too. Scrapbooks-Plus is filled to the brim with product right now (completely out of shelf space!) so if you are going to GASC, you need to stop in. In addition to product, you'll find tons of ideas and sample throughout the store. More to come......

This month's DT kit created by Leah has a tons of product - Bo Bunny, KI Memories, DoodleBug - so much that I have LEFTOVERS (never you say!). Here's a one-page layout that was made from leftover product after I finished my two page layout - a bonus page that I probably won't display at the store. The theme this month was 'birthday', so here's a sneak peak. This is a fairly simple page - not over embellished or crazy. I used a Page Map from Becky Fleck's book to help with the design.

Back with more on the upcoming GASC conference later....
