SCT Summer Issue is Delish!

V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N time and the living is easy! OK, I've gotta admit it's just a one-day vacation, but today it's all about relaxing. I slept in, we picked up breakfast from th local McD's and ate at home, then I checked email, did my banking updates (normally a Saturday chore but I just didn't find the time this weekend), read the summer issue of Scrapbook & Cards Today, took my boys to see Jurassic World, and visited FroYo (yum!).

I always do a quick review and then head back to read more thoroughly so must head back again soon. I don't have a print subscription but you can read online or download your own copy of this mag. My fav section is probably the Top 10, where they share new items to market, but I love the new techniques, card and scrapbook sketch layouts, and trend reports as well. So, if you haven't already check out the latest issue! Enjoy!

happy Father's Day, PB!

This Sunday we celebrated Father's Day with a cookout per my DH's wishes, and bestowed upon him a few gifts. I'd located MAN CRATES online recently and ordered him the grill master set. They stuff crates with snacks, gadgets, and gear, then seal them up tight and ship them with a crowbar.  In the Grill Master crate, this included a cast-iron smoker box, four steak thermometers, a brass-knuckle meat tenderizer, and a set of BBQ sauces and spice blend rub. PB seemed impressed with the contents, and my youngest seemed impressed w the packaging. We'd also picked up the first two seasons of the recently ended HBO series, The Newsroom. LOVE that show!

Anywho, here's the card I gave PB, based on one by the lovely and talented Sandra of Made by Sandra blog roll fame and using the supplies provided in the Simon Says Stamp June 2015 card kit. The kits have been uber cool so far and I'm lovin' the bright summery colors in this month's kit!

Also here's the cards that my youngest son gave PB and earlier, me for Mother's Day. I HAD to capture them for posterity.
