LCOM reveal

We are now in the middle of summer vacations and I'm really enjoying it.  We went camping at Fundy national park last weekend and we had such a wonderful time.  Looking forward to going camping again next weekend.  I'm also looking forward to our road trip my husband and I will be doing to celebrate our 15 years together.  We will be joined by our good friends Pascal and Katia.

On the scrapbooking side : It was reveal time yesterday on the LCOM sketch blog.  I loved working with this sketch!

Here is what I came up with : 

It's Marianne stuffed dog nammed Scrappy.  She made the costume with construction paper, kleenex and yarn.  The kid's got imagination!

Ah Summer!  I usually loath the heat.  I used to be unable to sleep at night and that lead to me being cranky.  Having to spend my days cooped up in the basement to escape the heat.  Those days are over.  We now have a heat pump!  what a difference it makes.  I'm actually enjoying the summer and the heat.  I can even bake!  My oven used to get a break during the summer since it used to heat up the house.  I love summer!  :)

And another reason I love summer : CTMH convention!  I could not attend this year but tagged along tanks to twitter, facebook and CTMh blogs.  I also go to preview the new catalogue!  Amazing products to come.  Can't wait to share it all with you.

To other news, I am now a proud member of the Let's Capture our Memories Sketch design team!  I get to work with amazing artists and make layout using a different sketch every other week.  Check it out! 

Here is my layout using Bo Bunny's Hello sunshine paper :

I also made this layout using Crate paper

And this one too using one of my new favorite manufacturer - Authentique paper.  Just love the texture of it.  Works great with CTMH wood embelishments and My little bit of whimsy button

Me time

 Well what a great couple of weeks I've just spent.  I've been busy now that school is out.  Having all the kids all day long has been exhausting, but I'm starting to get the hang of it.  It helps alot when the weather is nice, they love playing outside.
Last weekend I had the most amazing girl's weekend. My girlfriend picked me up in the morning and we went shopping.  I badly needed summer clothes and went on a shopping spree.  What an amazing feeling to be able to go in almost any store in the mall and be able to find something that fit!  At this time last year, I was only able to shop in the plus size section.  It felt awesome!  We went to lunch and then went to see Magic Mike.  We then ordered pizza and just sat around drinking sangria and wine and chatted.  In the morning, the kids and the hubbies joined us for a brunch.  We'll have to make this a yearly event.  It was the perfect solution to charge up my battery and get some precious me-time. 

I did not make time to scrapbook much in the last couple weeks.  I think I need new supplies to get the juices flowing again, and maybe some fresh pictures.  We'll see what we can dream up over the weekend.  Until then here are a few layout I did mange to make since my last blog entry.  Have an awesome day everyone!!

This first layout is made Fancy pants It's the little things collection using a sketch from the Creating with sketches book by Kristine Davidson.  I have the digital version it on my Kobo and it comes with me to every crop - I highly recommend it!
Poor ZoĆ© waiting for the other kids to finish eating so she can have her dessert.  lol

This next one uses the same paper pack, with Thickers, Prima flowers and trim. 

And this last layout using a picture taken at a crap with my awesome scrappy friends.  I used 4heur37 paper, thickers and prima flower and bling.
