Plugging along, as usual. Lots to include this week, the last bits of the Olympics, the last few days with family in town and the last few days of summer. I cannot believe we are already approaching the end of August.
Here's a look at the whole spread
and the left side
I had to use this new washi from My Minds Eye. I posted it on Instagram and said I'm going to need 16 rolls of this and I wasn't kidding, I love it!
Sadly the last little bits from the Olympics. I had thought of putting photos from the closing ceremonies but opted to just put in the final medal count and type up some words on the closing ceremonies. Thanks again Erica Hernandez for the amazing journaling cards you did for the Olympics. I sure loved using them the past few weeks!
Some new Twinkle Toes for Simone, she's wanted them for awhile now and I found them at Nordstrom Rack so I was happy not to pay full price. Light up shoes are expensive!
A simple shot of our dinner out to our local Chinese food place. I used a google map for the background but added my own geotag and text.
A snap of Kelly Purkey's latest stamps to arrive a shot of some of the papers Simone is bringing home this year from school. The reality of Kindergarten is fast approaching.
I opted to use the bottom two slots here for our day in Tahoe, I had a lot to include and didn't want to do an insert or a flip up. I set up a 12 x 4 canvas and added my photos and just printed it out as two 6x4 pictures.
Here is the right side up close
Just like for Tahoe I used the top two slots for our day in San Francisco when we dropped off our family at the airport.
Instagram did an update last week, while I love the look I'm not happy with some of the changes, hopefully it will get better.
Oh my, so needed that day in the salon, getting old sure sucks!
I did a massive clean up and purging of old toys while Simone was at school on Friday, it was so needed and felt so good after.
Saturday Simone did a head stand for the first time! Totally on her own too.
My nephew left for college on Saturday, his whole family took him up to get settled. The cute drawing was done by his girlfriend, she is amazingly talented and will certainly miss him while he's gone. I cannot believe he's in college already, seems like just yesterday...
Saturday night we went to a benefit concert at Fairytale Town to see Jackie Greene. It was a great time and Simone's first concert, that she will probably forget. The music was great and it was a perfect summer evening.
Thanks for stopping by, I'm off to have fun with my mom!
