Summer Birthdays...and a bit more!

Hello there! I am just arriving home after spending the last 2 weeks running around! I spent my birthday weekend in Saskatoon scrapbooking like mad! {YAHOO!} Arrived home last Monday, just to unpack/repack and head out to Good Spirit Lake! I love summer!

In June, we celebrated 2 outta 4 of my kiddos birthdays.

WARNING: Massive amounts of photos ahead!

The first one was A.J. who turned 5! 

The second party was for Khymara, who turned 8!

And as an added bonus! {hehe} Here are a few pics from my scrap-cation!

My Birthday Drink of choice for the weekend! Coffee, choco syrup, Baileys, peppermint extract, & whip cream! YUMMO!

Karen working like mad on her fabulous Florida project! This gal is so stinkin' creative!! Only she would think of using some Tim Holtz packaging to make a "Shadow Box" for a gigantic sea shell! <3

I created this image with some help from a page out of Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine . June 2013 ed.
Flowers add just that bit of charm! {Prima & BoBunny...I believe, don't quote me on that!}

I adore making tags! I like to re-use packaging from products {cardboard inserts, etc}

Inspiration for this was found here
...Dyan Reaveley . I have not yet purchased a stencil like this. So I decided at midnight to create one. I really liked how it turned out.

I love my mini canvas! Inspiration for this little guy {2x2" mini} can be found here

Country Moose Scrap-N-Patch! I love this place that is tucked away in a small town called Laird, Sk!

Me & my scrappin' buddy Karen! {Creator & Owner of Country Moose Scrap-N-Patch}

And of course, a project is never finished without getting messy! Love sprays & inks!

Happy Hump Day!!!
~happy crafting!~


  1. I love your Birthday Parties! Sooo creative! :)

  2. Fun party pictures! Fantastic ideas. Tell me more about this scrapbooking place!


    1. Oh Andrea, this place is amazing! Karen is such a great Hostess! She has a shop in her home, with all kinds of goodies; from Tim Holtz to Bo Bunny, Graphic 45, inks, sprays, dies, the list goes on and on! I *think* the idea in the future is to have a group of gals who want to scrapbook for a weekend, just come on out and enjoy themselves at this home away from home! It's about a 45-60 minute drive from Saskatoon (By Rosthern). I love it there!

    2. OH and I need to add that it would be like a Scrapbook Retreat. Meals are provided. And their would be a fee of course, just like a scrapbook retreat.
