~Canoe Trip~

 Our very first FAMILY CANOE TRIP! It was so much fun!!! Beautiful, serene, peaceful...

Some of us had more confidence and excitement than others...
We saw several Blue Herons and chicks. Sooooo cute, okay, maybe cute is not exactly the right word but neat for sure!

We took about three hours to travel about 4 river miles, stopping a few times for a dip. The river was THE PERFECT temperature. 
We saw lots of damage from the floods and even managed to scavenge a raft that the kids took turns floating along the river on.
The river is only a few inches deep in some areas and in others I was up to my neck, like when Jason tipped over our canoe!!! No pictures of that, just a nice one of us~~~

And finally, on to some SCRAPPY! I've been busy with the kids home for summer but I have managed to squeak out just a few projects.
 Gave this one to Jason for Father's Day. I am so loving working with 7 Gypsies trays! I used lots of Webster's Pages, Tim Holtz metals and filmstrip, and Martha Stewart punches for this project. I also used TONS of Stickles but that is really hard to see in this photo. I added sparkle to the chandelier and to most of the butterflies. Tiny little things so I had to go really slowly. Really fun project to put together.

And another tray of our family. Some of these photos are recent and some are from YEARS ago. I used such a variety of products...October Afternoon papers, K & Co. ephemera, Tim tags, Hobby Lobby trims, Maya Road & Prima flowers, Tim metals...

And finally, an actual LAYOUT! The cover page to our Christmas Album. This has got to be one of my all time favorite shots of the kids. They all look happy and cute AT THE SAME TIME! Treasure!!!

Happy Scrapping,

Love those altered trays - I bought 2 of them myself but haven't touched them yet - you are totally inspiring me to jump into them once I get some energy back :) Awesome pics too!!!
