A Banner Day!

It has been quite sometime since I blogged! Summer has got me running way too much! I have scratched off Camp Counselor as a possible career choice. All this planning and doing has got me exhausted and the kids keep asking for more, more, more!
In the evening one of them (or sometimes both of them) will ask me what we are doing tommorow. And I have to pull this out of my childhood -

Pinky and the Brain vol1.jpg
Pinky: "Gee, Brain, what do you want to do tonight?"

The Brain: "The same thing we do every night, Pinky—try to take over the world!"

Although I say "The same thing we do every day, {insert child's name who is asking}—try to take over the world!"

They shake their head, assume I have finally fallen off my rocker, and go away (YEAH!) for about 2.4 minutes.

And then the child returns and says "So you don't know what we are doing?"
 I generally scream or start pulling on my hair at this point in time. That is when they stop asking! Until the next time they ask ...

So that all leads to my inability to scrap much of anything. For sanity sake I had to sit down at my scrappy desk and get some of this scrappiness out of me!
I did this two page layout of Amory's End of the Soccer Season Party using the Apron Strings July Bigger Than A Breadbox Kit. I completed the current challenge at Paper Variety by using stitches (under my banner), a multi photo layout, and journaling strips.
The Reason For the Season?
The Trophy!
The next layout is of Amory too. We visit Miller Outdoor Theatre about twice a month. It is an open air theatre that is free! We take a lunch, watch the show and sometimes play in the park afterwards. Always a fun outing. On this visit Amory was chosen to go on stage with the actors to learn some dances. She was so proud of herself! I used a sketch from Sassy Lil Sketches for this layout - with another banner! I sewed this a bit differently then the trophy layout above - I think I like this sewing better! 

It's Your Day To Shine On Stage

Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed day,
