This is how we roll...

Today was scheduled to be our annual "Family Fun Day" as a end of summer close out.
Normally, we take the kids to a local amusement park for the day. But there was a heat warning here - 95 degrees and oppressive. I can't imagine standing on line on pavement on a day like today. Surprisingly, the kids were receptive to an alternate suggestion - bovling! I never thought I'd get them to go for it.

Of the kids, only Colin & Bren had been before, at a birthday party. Tommy was only interested for 4-5 frames and then he abandoned his bowling shoes. Mike and I hadn't gone bowling since I had been preggers with C-man, so it was definitely a blast from the past.
Here are a few pics, not yet edited-

All in all, we had fun. We each improved during our second game. Mike and I bowled an extra third game by ourselves. The only thing that was a bummer is how pricey it was! With all of us, we played 16 games and it cost us $92! Of course, we had to rent shoes, but sheesh! We could have gone to the amusement park for not all that much more. Oh well, it was a nice day.

I've squeezed in some scrapping time in since my last post, despite working 26 hours this week. I had been very inspired after having read the latest " Designing With" books - "Designing wiht Details"
Here are my latest projects:

The "Love" layout was made with a Pink SugarPop stamp. I heat embossed the word, then painted over the cardstock with diluted and undiluted Colorwash, with a few perfect pearls added in. All materials supplied by Scrapper's Haven.
Very arsty, very fun to make. Love that picture of my folks.

Speaking of Scrapper's Haven, hop on over there to sign up for the Iron Chef 3 contest there! Donna is giving away a fabulous prize to the winner - you don't wanna miss it!
