Summer Vacation 2009

Hi all,
A quickie post for tonight. Work is so crazy right now - I think I said it already, but I've been coming home with a brain of mush and don't seem to be good for much in the evenings. A very wise co-worker always used to say "This too shall pass..." I keep saying it to myself as I cannot keep up this pace indefintely. Right now I am wishing I worked in an accountant's office or something so that I could tell myself there is some sort of light at the end of the tunnel... "This too shall pass..this too shall pass.." I think I can, I think I! Enough complaining out of me - on to the layout. Here is another layout I completed when I got together with a few friends on the Easter weekend. I actually started the layout at Halloween, but just didn't get around to finishing it! Well, it's finally done now and I like how it turned out. I asked for my boys' input for the journalling - so they came up with the TOP 10. I love it when I can get them involved somehow.

I must say that the stitching was a suggestion from one of the gals I was scrapping with - I knew it needed something in that spot, but couldn't nail it down. I didn't think of stitching since I didn't have my stuff for that with me - but that, you see, is the beauty of having several girls surrounding you with large stashes of scrap supplies - 10 seconds and I was set up with template, needle and embroidery floss! Thanks girls!

Happy Hump Day!
Shanna :)

What I used:

papers: Bo Bunny
stamps: CTMH - monthly word puzzles, Giggle Lowercase (numbers)
embellishments: flowers & button - Bo Bunny, stitching using template
