Monday's Highlight: #selfie by Kristine

Fun Shape Templates 2 by Scrapping with Liz
"Well Read" Papers by Allison Pennington and Mixed Bag Elements by Etc by Danyale
I saw this page a couple of weeks ago in the SwL Facebook Group. It really stood out to me. I loved the deep blue with the pops of green and orange. I also love the touch of splatters, scatters and stamps behind the paper squares, it really draws your eye in toward the photo. The touches of stitches and strings are a nice touch. What a fun #selfie page! BTW - I'm horrible at taking selfies. I'm not sure you'll ever see a #selfie page from me, but Kristine sure got it right.

Remember to post your pages in the current album (I'll be posting a new one later on this week for September), and you could win  $$$ to my store!

Week 33: School, Bike Rides and Cousins

 Weekly Life Templates 9 by Scrapping with Liz
Memory Pockets Monthly August '16 Discover & Add-Ons Available at TLP
This week was full of activity. Lydia got a new bike for her birthday so we did a lot of bike riding. My oldest went to first day at her new co-op and is officially in high school! Where did the time go? We sewed, did some fun art projects and of course school was a part of all of it. Then we had cousins over to spend the night before they get back into their normal school routine. Then we had even more cousins over the next night. There was a lot of fun going on in our house all week.

I kept this week's page super simple. 1. Time. I didn't have a lot of time this weekend to scrap so I just put this page together really quickly. 2. I find that I really do like simple, especially for these weekly pages.

I was also reminded about why I scrapbook. My kids have been looking through our albums all week. They love it. They love reading their stories. They love seeing pictures of our old house, of old friends, of events they forgot about. They love when I tell them about a picture or event. It really brings it all together for them. They get to be reminded of how their story is unfolding.

This week was full of so much goodness. An early morning hike with friends to watch the sunrise over the mountains, dinner made by my daughters, school, birthdays and more. I love sitting down every Saturday night, going over my pics from the week and putting together a page. It gives me a reminder that my life is blessed. So blessed.

Memory Pockets Monthly August '16 Discover & Add-Ons Available at TLP
It was another week filled with a lot of different fun activities. We are winding up summer and slowly getting into the school work but also trying to enjoy a last few summer activities. We tubed down the river, hung out with friends, enjoyed the Family Festival at our church, and celebrated dad's birthday along with normal activities around the house.

I'm loving the August '16 Discover MPM kit at TLP. The colors are bright and bold, but also neutral to be used with everyday life photos.
