Now that Lara only has a week left of school and Nicholas 2 weeks left, it's time to make a list of things to do. Usually I just save the list on the computer but I thought it would be fun to make a layout of it, post in on our fridge, and then create an album entirely about our Summer Fun. This way the kids can pick what they want to do for the day. I left a few spots open for when we have other ideas, like amusements park, which I'm sure we'll go to a couple of them.
I got the idea from a blog that I absolutely love, The Crafting Chicks. I used a lot of their ideas and added a ton of my own as well. I'd add the link to the article, but their blog is down for some reason :( If anyone wants my list, email me and I'm happy to share it. (Word file)
I used some Echo Park and Imaginese. Both have nice bright fun images. Perfect for Summer. You'll probably have to click on the picture to actually read the list. Does anyone else make Summer lists? What's your favorite thing to do with your kids over Summer break?
I also entered my layout in the following challenges:
Penny's Challenges - Here comes Summer
Sew Many Challenges - Circles
Fresh Brewed Designs (monthly challenge) - Summer
Fresh Brewed Designs (weekly challenge) - Anything but a card
My Time to Craft - Use a die cut
Do you Stack up to us? - Animals
2 Sisters Challenge blog - Anything goes
Crafting for All Seasons - Anything goes
As it's Memorial Day here in the U.S., I also want to thank the military and their families for the sacrifices they make every day to keep our country safe.
