Summer is here in Texas. The kids are out of school. The air conditioning is running 24/7 and the pace is slowing at least a little – now we’re over the hump of end of school events.
We don’t have any major plans yet for the summer so I will have to see what happens. As the kids get older its hard to fit that family vacation in and they have so much else happening during these few short months.
I have been scrapping away the last bit trying to do something daily but not always achieving that. I’m the CEO of the scrapping round here so I allow myself to take a day here and there. I do like to get my simple scrapper layouts down though and this month I was really happy with the two I got completed.
First up is a layout for our summer trip album from last summer and is about when we visited an Art Gallery. Have you ever seen a strange thing in a art gallery? I think my kids enjoy searching the weirdest thing they can find.
CD Muckosky – Oh Happy Day
Connie Prince- Supply Closet
Chelle’s Creations – Apple My Eye
Creashens – Bare Necessities – Tapes
Juliana Kneipp – 123 Count On Me
Just Jaimee – Spring Sweetness
Litabells Designs – My Happy Place
Mye De Leon – The Best Time of the Year
Pink Replitle Designs – Wanderlust
Sahlin Studio – Fieldtrip
My favorite layout this month though is once again the story starters. If you haven’t yet checked out the story starters which come as part of the simple scrapper premium membership you need to as your missing out. Ever since Jennifer added them they have made some of the greatest layouts for my albums and this month I feel is no different. They really get me to journal about things I would normally scrap about.

The journaling reads -
This is the house that on October 28th, 1967 they waved a pink cardigan to annouce my birth to the parish from the bedroom window on the left.
This is the house where I got the scar on my top lip from the radiator in my parents bedroom.
This is the house where I remember I had blue fish wallpaper which I can still picture today.
This is the house on Liverpool road which in some ways led me to attend Liverpool University.
