This past weekend, we had a friend visit from Toronto, so I’ve been absent from blogging. We all had a great and productive couple of days, and Maui and Hilo seemed to love the extra attention, hehe. We thought it would be fun to spend time at the beach. …so we packed up for the day, the dogs hopped into the car, and off we went. Hilo was ready to go before we even finished loading the car, haha!
The weather was absolutely gorgeous, so we decided to dine at one of our favorite places, Kelly’s French Bakery. Not only is their food UH-MAZING, but their outdoor dining area is a fun place to be! I thoroughly enjoyed lunch. Here was my delicious chicken sandwich:
Afterwards, we went on short hikes along the coast. Maui and Hilo definitely enjoyed the outdoor time. Can you tell?! …and don’t you just love how pretty the ocean is?! It’s so blue (and clean). I’m hoping that it always stays that way.
California is amazingly beautiful. If you haven’t visited my neck of the woods, you should definitely head on out here!
On another note, I had the time to play in the scraproom this morning.
Remember that it’s always okay to scrapbook about yourself. Your dreams and goals are all valid stuff to work with. I promise that in the future you’ll be glad that you documented it. I’m glad that I did. 😉
My first layout features a fun way to journal – create a list of some of your dreams. I worked with the first Dear Lizzy line from American Crafts. The chipboard shapes are one of my favorite additions to this line. Although small, they add a lot of pizazz to your project.
My second layout is about why I love to scrapbook. It has become a major part of my life, so I had to create a layout about my love for this craft. To see how I used stamps to create my own patterned paper using August’s kit from The Sampler, check out my post here.
Last but not least, I have a winner to the Technique Tuesday kit. …and the winner to the Lovey Dovey giveaway is:
