Well it may be the end of August and summer as we know it since its back to school in just a few, and the weather hasn't been exactly nice, but its been a good week, found my mojo again after weeks without scrapping, got a layout picked up for winter issue by Canadian Scrapbooker which is so cool, AND (THANKS to MICHELLE B.) got asked to be on the premier dt for a new lss opening up in GP mid oct. (the city near us where I shop and do business) so it's been a good week scrapwise and i've even managed to create several pages i'm pleased with, some for the new dt (hmm, not sure i even heard the name of the new store) , some just for fun with summer photos and some cause i simply had/wanted to play with all the new kits and papers i accumulated over the summer. (how does that happen when i don't scrap for weeks and i didn't scrap shop on holidays once!). Anyway, Life Preservers, Mosh Posh, Lisa's Scrap Shack, have provided hours of fun for me this week and here are some of the results.

had a day to stay home and scrap, yep , i almost forgot how but not quite!!! Here are the projects i created with the SavvyNSassy August sassy ribbon kit which is yummy. I LOVE red, always have, to wear and decorate with, i loved using it with all the different patterned papers.
Its still COLD here, rainy and dreary, i can see a wee bit of sunshine and blue sky but its not enough for me. I suppose we'll drain the pool this weekend (Cryin here big time) as it doesn't sound like it will warm up much and i'm sure the water is way too cold to enjoy. The kids are ready for back to school with new supplies and clothes, even though they are not anxious to really go back to school the preparation is always fun. I found myself some fab new shoes for work/school too so I'm all set!!
We have our tickets booked for Maui, our passports will be in our hands this evening, the condo's are booked and I've got part of my wardrobe already planned to take, it may be close to 2 months away but i know how fast time flies, sooo excited. It feels more official now but till i step foot on the airplane (a big jet which will be a first for me) It won't seem quite real.
SO hope you are enjoying summer and sunshine where you are!!! send some our way pretty pretty please!!!

Just a quick post to let you all know we are home from our sunny okanagan holiday, the kids and i had a great time visiting and shopping and lazing on the beach (well mitch worked hard at perfecting his waterskiing skills and that means early mornings on Lake Okanagan) and i miss the heat and mom's good cooking already. It has not been nice since we got home, i sure hope summer isn't over here yet, we did not use the pool enough. This week i'm just getting unpacked and the house cleaned and stuff ready for the local fair that takes quite a bit of our time so its another busy week with no scrap time to speak off, i hope i don't forget how to make a layout when i finally do get back in the groove. will update soon with pics. Oh and love coming home to find goodies in my mailbox and today i got some gorgeous ribbon kits from Savvy N Sassy and i can hardly wait to play with them. Hope August is treating you well.
