CHA and some randomness.

Just got back from CHA last night, had a great time with Tricia and saw a lot of great new product!! Especially love the new releases by Crate Paper, My Mind's Eye and some fun stuff from Sassafras Lass. It was a short, very busy trip, but we put together some amazing kits for the upcoming months that I know everyone is going to love! As most of you know, Tricia is taking the month of August off and due to my crazy personal life at the moment I am going to take August off from my project kits as well. But I promise some great surprises real soon!

I got home last night emptied my suitcase and then filled it back up! I am in the truck with the boys and my parents headed up to their cottage on Drummond Island. Thankfully I now have a little wireless adapter and can use the internet anywhere! Don't you love technology!

Hoping for some time next week to be creative -it feels like forever since I have scrapped! I'll post some pics of our adventure up north tomorrow, have a great Thursday!

A very special Mommy moment.

I just had one of those amazing moments with my boys that you hold in your heart forever. You know the kind of Mommy moment that almost makes you not want to breathe for fear you'll miss it. I told the boys we could catch fireflies before bed tonight so when it was dusk we went outside in our pajamas and chased fireflies. Watching them laugh and giggle as the sun was setting was priceless, but then Zach laid down in the grass and pointed at the moon "wanna lay with me Mommy" "look at the moon!" so I laid down in the grass with a little boy snuggled to each side of me and we watched fireflies float by and looked at the moon. I know I will never forget tonight.

I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!

Far & Away travel mini album.

Here is the Cocoa Daisy project kit for July, "Far and Away". The official description:
What does summer mean to you? If you are like me it means vacation time! Whether your vacation is a simple trip to the beach, a visit to the family cottage or something more exotic, chances are you will take a lot of pictures. This bracket shaped mini album from October Afternoon and a great variety of new travel themed papers and embellishments from companies like Making Memories, The Girls Paperie and Little Yellow Bicycle is perfect for recording all your travel adventures this summer. A full set of instructions for completing the mini album is included.

As you can see there is no journaling in my mini, I wanted to get started on this album and have it ready for when I go to Greece in September. The grid paper pages are going to be perfect for handwritten journaling.

And a few photos:

Hope you are all having a great Fourth Holiday weekend!
