Joyful July

Lots going on this month! Summer movies, (Harry Potter next week) Summer school, Summer vacation, and Summer giveaways! I have really been enjoying the slower pace of my two summer school classes. They are pretty basic but still interesting and fun. The kids and I are spending a little time outside everyday. I have found that by going outside in short spurts they are managing very nice little tans without burning and overexposure. Tonight we all made a little fire and had smores. The kids don't really like them. Go figure. Erick spotted a huge piece of wood behind the shed, so we fished that out, and dumped it on the fire. Tomorrow morning we will do some more yard work. All in all, its a nice blend of fun and relaxation and projects this summer. One of my kids favorite things about summer is the Popsicles! Speaking of which, (nice segue right?) Paper Popsicles has an AWESOME giveaway this month on their blog. Pretty awesome right?


They also have another great sketch this week for a card. Here is my interpretation.
Then for the sketch over at ICS (Inspirational Card Sketches) I made this little cutie using the tweets digital designs from Paper Popsicles.
I also got this cute mushroom digital design as part of a prize for winning the card sketch last week. I made this card for Erick, who is truly the fun guy in my life. (get it, funguy??) He thinks its mostly funny that I made a card for him, just so I could put that saying on it. LOL!
