 Well, vacation is over and now it's time to get back in the routine of things.  Still a couple more weeks of summer before the kids head off to school and I plan to make the most of it.  We just arrived from the most amazing trip.  We enjoyed a 5 day road trip to New York.  I was amazed at how much we crammed in to our 3 days of sightseeing.  We did a whole lot of driving, a whole lot of walking and a whole lot of eating.  What's up with those american serving sizes!  My husband an I shared meals most of the week and we always had leftovers!  It was so good.  The best was the Brownie cheesecake the enjoyed at Tops diner.  We shared on piece for desert one night and had leftovers for breakfast the next day.  Yes they were that big and so delicious

Now that the pictures are all uploaded, all that's left is to process them and scrapbook them.  Can't wait to have time to scrapbook again after a 2 week break.  Here are some of the layouts I did before vacation.  Check out some of the new CTMH paper packs!  They are so pretty!

This first layout made with Bo Bunny's little miss with some Prima flowers and a CTMh ribbon bow
This layout was made for LCOM sketch blog using sketch # 144  The paper and accessories are all from the new CTMH fall catalogue.  Love the burlap ribbon!

I love that my daughter has amzing friends.  Love theses pictures and could not wait to scrap them
Here is the burlap ribbon again!  I used it to make a banner.  The paper 3d fabric flowers and canvas stickers are from the new CTMH Clementine collection
Have an amazing reste of summer!

We just spent the weekend in Caraquet.  The kids spent the week there at their grand-parent's house.  they crammed more activities in a week than we did the whole summer so far.  We arrived home a day early as the girls were really missing their home.  We only got a glimpse of the Acadian festival.  I'm kind of sad that we will not be seeing more of it this year, but it will still be there next year.  Since we were home early, I go to do a little scrapbooking.  I received new goodies and printed new pictures so the creative juices were flowing.  Here are some of the layouts I did.

This first one is made using the new CTMH Flirty collection and Creative Scrapper's sketch  # 218

Another Creative scrapper's loayout this time it's sketch # 215 and some pretty Crate paper.
