A bit behind in posting...

I've been very busy with getting my boys started back to school. Evan is in kindergarten this year and Max is in 2nd grade. They are both doing VERY well and loving school!! I now have the mornings to myself since Evan is in kindergarten half day. I thought that I would have more time to scrap but that hasn't happened too much yet. These are some LOs that I've finished over the past couple of weeks but wanted to wait to post them together. I'm almost caught up with all of my Spring and Summer LOs, so I'll be starting on this years' Disney albums soon!!!

This one turned out to be my favorite!! Max celebrated his 7th Birthday on May 31. I didn't get too many good pics of him that day because he ended up getting really sick during his party. This was taken that morning before he started feeling bad. He was goofing off in this pic and I just love it! Since he turned 7, I decided to play off of the Lucky 7 theme that I saw on Indie Art. I used Indie Art for the word Lucky, the die, and the hearts, diamonds, spades, and clubs on the cards. I used Blackletter for the 7's. I cut the cards by hand and used my corner rounder. DH thought that I should have just used real cards from a deck but that would be easy. It was more fun to cut all those tiny pieces and glue them onto my cards. LMBO I love how it turned out and even excited that the numbers on top of the die add up to 7!!!
Here is Evan's Easter LO. I used Mini Monograms for the scalloped circle, George for the circle and face for the bunny and flowers, Doodlecharms for the bunny head, and Storybook for the title. I wanted the bunny face to match the paper so I cut the pieces using George and put them on the Doodlecharms bunny face.
Here is Evan's Slippery When Wet LO. I used Going Places on this one along with George to cut the rounded squares for the sign.
Here is Evan blowing kisses and waving bye to Daddy's plane. He had to fly to Baltimore for work and this was his first time away from us so we all had a hard time with it. Max had to say bye to him at school that morning but Evan got to come to the airport and I caught him at the windows of the airport doing this. I used Spongebob, Mickey and Friends for the clouds, Life is a Beach for the title, and My World for the plane.

Here is Max coolin off in our pool. We had this metal frame pool that we bought at Target this year. It's 10' in diameter and 30" deep...just perfect for them to play in. DH didn't want it killing the grass so we put it on our patio and was able to put the boys' basketball goal nearby too. It was a fun summer. I just love these pics. The top left one, I think that they were trying their hand at synchronized swimming!! LOL I used Life is a Beach for the entire LO.
Here are my boys on the 4th of July. I used Stand and Salute on this page and added Stickles to the blue firework and embossing glitter to the red one and the title.
Another LO of Max cooling off at a Spray Park. They have so much fun at this place. It was a really hot day when we went and I even ended getting in for a while. It's just too fun! I used Graphically Speaking for the Water Works sign and water spicket and George for the big circle. I used Stickles on the drip of water and bubbles on the sign and Glossy Accents for the words.

Here is the last LO. It's of a Cinco de Mayo party that I threw for the boys back in May. Max's teacher last year had all these wonderful parties for the kids so I started having them at home for all the little holidays. The love it. Max even came home and taught Evan the Mexican Hat Dance. I used Graphically Speaking for the Cinco sign, Doodletype stencil font for the de Mayo, Paper Doll Dress Up spoon for the maracas, Plantin Schoolbook for the zig zag on the maracas, and DS and George for the cactus.
