It's Speed Scrap Time!!

I'm so excited for my first speed scrap at Scrapable!  I haven't done a speed scrap in months and am so looking forward to it!  If you don't know, a speed scrap is 10 instructions, given over an hour.  It's a great way to get a LO done AND create something you may not ordinarily do!  It's so fun!  And id I mention that there's also a participation prize?!?!  Come on over to Scrapable Tuesday night and give it a shot!  Hope to see you there!

Go Play in the Yard!!

Teresa Digi Designs has a bright and fun new kit out, called Go Play in the Yard!  It's such a great kit for outdoor or park pictures!  She's got some awesome ellies in this kit, including a huge clubhouse that my husband and kids would love to have for the backyard.  So, I did a LO about what our dream backyard would look like.  I even had some input from Landon, but he kept wanting to put stuff on the clubhouse roof!!  Silly boy!!
The kit's on sale right now for only $5!  Here's the preview:
Here's another LO I just finished:

Water Fun!

Now that I've finally finished scrapping all my June pics, I'm moving onto July!  Thankfully, there doesn't seem to be nearly as many pictures as June had, so hopefully I'll be able to be current soon!  We had some water fun mid-July and here are the layouts:
