That's what I'm talking about! FOUR glorious weeks of not having to get up at 6:00 a.m. (okay, 6:30 by the time I drag my butt out of bed). Four weeks of not having to get my kids awake and out of the house by 7:10... Four weeks to just enjoy each other. :)

We spent last week at my SIL's trailer near Peterborough. It was fantastic and we had so much fun together. We went to the beach, went go-karting, headed into Peterborough to see the circus as they happened to be in town. We also went to the zoo in Peterboroough. If you ever get the chance to go, GO. The zoo is free and quite impressive considering. There is even a water splash pad for the kids to cool down in and this really big slide that our kids loved. Lots of fun.

I did get some great shots of the family while we were there. I'll add those in another post. For now, I"ll share some layouts I've created over the last little bit.

All of the following were for my GDT over at The Paper Passion. The TPP July Kit was filled to the brim with Fancy Pants Soiree papers and so much more that co-ordinated perfectly. Hurry - run and get yours! I've created 4 layouts so far with my kit and I've got plenty of stuff to do at least 2-3 more. There's also an add-on available for cardstock so if you're a cardstock gal, be sure to pick it up. Rosa (TPP Owner) has done a fab job of co-ordinating the cardstock perfectly. She didn't settle for "it sort of goes". I'm telling ya - they are perfect matches. Love that. :)

Off to get ready to watch Big Brother 11!! Love that show - perfect summer watching. Requires no thought.

Oh and the best's Monday tomorrow and guess what? I don't have to drag my sorry butt out of bed.....I'm just sayin'.

Thanks for stopping by! Back soon with some more layouts and pictures of the kids & Joe.

Some good news & Happy Canada Day!

I was selected for one the guest DT spot over at The Paper Passion for the next 2 months! How cool is that. :)

It's my favourite store to shop at - the prices are great, Rosa (owner) and the store are local and the service she offers is second to none. I'm excited. :)

Spent a lot of time in the sun today celebrating Canada Day. I'm pooped but in the mood to scrap. The kids are enjoying their break from school - both received almost all A's on their report cards. I'm so happy they are doing so well.

That's it for me...looking forward to the weekend already!
