I don't know about you but I'm ready for school to be out and enjoy some relaxing downtime. While I've moved from sunny all the time CA and won't have Disney or beaches right around the corner, we have plenty of beautiful parks that CA didn't have along with some fun festivals and the beach is just about an hour or so away. I am already enjoying the slowed down lifestyle here and the greenness.
This is what i chose to do for today Summer Theme project, I'll have another project tomorrow!
haha joke is on me, one more thing that has gone wrong with the move. I still can't find a way to transfer my pics from my camera to my computer. i have tried all day to get it to work. I will continue throughout today to find a way to make it work. Being no one I know is close by to use their computer :( so tomorrow will be a double joy for you cuz i promise one way or another i will get my pics up to post. i do apologize, but do enjoy the rest of the hop and be sure to come back tomorrow for day 2!
we found the cord for my printer and got it hooked up! just wish there was a universal cord for all this technology!

as promised! here are my two layouts most of my crafting stuff is either still packed or in one of the 15 boxes of missing stuff so I didn't have much to work with. But I ordered a CTMH You & Me Kit which you cn get HERE. For a simple $15.  The first layout I did was for us Moving Back to Oregon and the 2nd layout I plan to put the pctures of our first time back to the riverfront park. its one of our favorite parks in town. This Saturday is the Beat festival and we just love going to that, its been 6 yrs since we've gone and i was so afraid we moved back after it happened. But its this Sat.!  well, here's my layouts:

For Blog Candy (which unfortunately, i can't post pics of yet either ) just visit each blog along the way leave a comment about each of their projects some will only have one project some may have one per day so be sure to check on the 2 days to leave a comment on each of their projects, of course they'd love new followers too but I won't require that, just your choice.
