Okay, so I have been MIA lately. But, in my defense, I have been doing something with myself. Following the advice of my dearly loved local Starbucks store, I have been trying to do something good everyday. It is my new motto that I am trying to follow.

I have been spending a lot more time with my daughter. We have been watching movies and girl talking. It has been great!

I have been cleaning and purging every closet, cabinet, and drawer in our home.

Spending quality time curled up with a good book, a blanket, and my two precious fur babies.

I have planned all of my upcoming fall classes for my lss.

I finished back to school shopping and the school year started without a hitch.

And most importantly, I have been enjoying taking care of and spending time with my family. We are enjoying the last few weeks of summer and getting back into the schedule that a school year usually brings.

The only thing I guess that I haven't been doing is blogging. So, for today, this post will be my GOOD THING.

This layout came together fairly quickly, except for the hand stitching. I was so excited about the August Studio Calico kit that I received, that I couldn't wait to create a page with it. The "Friends" paper was perfect for the summer photos that I took of the girls enjoying the pool. I stitched the flowers to mimic the stitching on the paper strips that I cut from one of the patterns. This was a really fun layout to do. Almost as much fun as watching the girls' enjoy their summer.

This is a layout I did using the Memory Mania Masterpieces sketch book. I changed the layout of the first page so that I could fit my photos.
