(He's a) Modern Day Linus

I thought I'd play along with this week's Creative Scrappers sketch just for fun. I had pictures that I'd been holding on to since our Disney trip, and this sketch was perfect for them.
"Modern Day Linus" 

The journaling will explain the title better. It reads, "You and you 'Ni-ni'. You go everywhere together. Just like Linus the Peanuts character. Proof? You even drug ni-ni all over Disney World!" That poor blanket. It's been EVERYwhere, and is now varying shades of gray instead of white. But I love that I have these pictures of him with it on an early (and chilly) morning at Disney.

I used the June kit from My Scrapbook Nook and these Simple Stories papers were the perfect "boy" colors and patterns that I was looking for. Of course I had to throw in there some washi tape from Bella Blvd. too. I'm kind of addicted to that stuff right now.


Speaking of Bella Blvd....Don't forget that they're having their Inspiration Week this week, which showcases pictures from CHA as well as projects and layouts that feature the latest lines they're debuting. Go check it out!

Well, that's about it from me. We're going through the lazy days of summer around here. I'm devouring books (found a new author and series I like) while the kids swim or play outside. We're TRYING to keep the house straightened, but that's a battle I'm most definitely losing. Other than that, I'm just trying to keep the kids active (read entertained). Some days I feel more like a cruise director since I'm fielding questions like, "What are we doing next?" and "Where are we going today?".  BUT soon it'll be back-to-school and I'll miss them.  I must remember this. I WILL remember this.

Happy Wednesday y'all!

We have hit the point in the summer where I am looking at the calendar to see when school starts, ha;)But I don't want it to be over at the same time;)

I love this page, the sketch is gorgeous! We have a linus here too, but he calls his blanket "bankwee" ha ha!
