A two page spread I did a few months ago of the flowers and fountains at the Generalife in Granada, Spain.

Simple, and used up 10 photos! I'm going for mass photo use to get these pictures done, now.

Calgary Zoo Trip

Two weeks ago, we hit up the Calgary Zoo with 33 of our closest family members (anyone who could make it) and had a great time! 

We saw the bears get fed. Grizzlies were catching fish in their paws right in front of us. 

We spent some family time,

Had the kids do the hard work,

and watched them enjoy the animals. The warthogs were released back into their pens while we were watching and they came racing and kicking in and put on a pretty good show.

The giraffe was stretching out to grab some leaves, 

and posing for pictures.

The kids posed for just as many as the animals.

The wildlife was on the prowl

and some almost escaped.....

Some moments were funny. When the gorillas put on a show, stealing treats from each other and sitting in the tub.

Some were cute.

Some were sweet.

Most were just plain fun.

The kids learned, 


and got to spend time together.

and it wasn't only the kids who had fun!

Papa love

Dad love

Silly love

Auntie love

Grams love

Mom love

GG love

Cousin love

And for the love of everything, these penguins are cute!!!

Treasured Memories Kit

I know, I've disappeared. Summer is coming to an end and I'm squeezing every last second out of it.... So, I haven't shared anything. 

Here are three more layouts that I made with the August kit. They shared these last week, so I can share them with you, now. 

Hope you like them!

Here is a link to the blog post from TM.

Treasured Memories Kit

Hooray! They've shared a few layouts on their blog, so I can too!

Here are three little layouts made with the kit:

Our beloved fairy garden, with lots of fun watercolours.

Miss Em's three favourite things: her hat, her bottle, and her Beary. Along with some of my favourite scrapbooking trends: sewing, triangles and feathers.

And Miss Em blown up huge because I love this photo!
This is just a simple background with a few embellishment clusters to keep the focus on the photo. 
As soon as they share more layouts next Monday, I'll post them for you to see. Until then, head to the store to see them all in person.

Gull Lake Cabining

We hardly had any fun at the lake with Ang, Dustin, Owen and Rosie.... hardly any at all...

We found treasures on the beach,

splashed in the lake,

ate snacks in the sand,

dug in the sand,

raced with our buddies,

made castles, holes and waterfalls,



and buried treasures in the sand.

And had soooo much fun!
