Happy Father's Day

Today was a good day. I finished up the mini album for my dad this morning, made potato salad and blueberry bars for the cookout, then packed up the kids and drove to my parents. The day was fun, but somewhat bittersweet. Dad is holding up well with all his chemo treatments, but he looks a little worn out from it lately. He goes for scans this coming week to see if he's responding well to the treatments, so I am a bit anxious, but I just keep thinking positive thoughts and go along.

I haven't posted any new pages for a while - I made a bunch last weekend, but then worked a lot of hours this week, so here we are.

Anyhow, here is a page I made for a challenge on Tally Scrapper - it's about a tropical drink I discovered in Hawaii:

Then this page was inspired by sketch #35 on Pencil Lines blog. I couldn't wait to play with the new Love Elsie goodies!

Speaking of Pencil Lines, I decided to give it a whirl and apply for the design team there. The sketches rock and the designers' work is always inspiring. Here is the page I created for the call:

And finally, a LO made with the June We B Scrappin kit. Gorgeous 7 Gypsies and Gin X products. I actually used this kit for my dad's mini album, which I'll be posting tomorrow.

So that's enough for tonight. I'm so tired I can hardly think straight right now!
Hope you had a good day with your families.

This week has been busy! I've been working a bunch of hours and the kids are busy too. Jimmy had his preschool year end party today. Ryan has his kindergarten graduation tomorrow, and Brenna's dance recital is both days this weekend.
Haven't had a ton of scrapping time, but hoping to get some play time tonight. I have my June kit from We B Scrappin to design with, and let me tell you it's gorgeous!

Here is a page I made this week and it was accepted into the 3 Bugs online gallery!
Love these pix of Ryan - just being a sweet silly boy.

I decided to alter a Prima pixie tin and turned it into a magnet. This was an easy way to recycle and it looks cute on my fridge!

Finally, I was so excited to win a spot on the June DT at TallyScrapper!

This is such a fun site and I can't wait to get my kit to play with!
