It’s JULY!!! EEKKK!! Can you believe it?! As our family gets ready to celebrate July 4th, I’ve finally taken a break from all the creating and packing of new products that will in my shop very soon! Whew!! Hint, hint… you don’t want to miss my Scrap Party coming up on July 10th. This year I’m partying it up for my 5th year of business and couldn’t be more excited! My Sparklers Design Team and I are teaming up with V’s Sweet Ideas, a couple very special, hand picked guests ~ YouTuber Teresa Huckle, aka craftinmommaML & a fabulous local card maker Ka Slagoski of Stamping Smiles Designs! Please check them out and follow them on their sites!
Scrap Party plug, check! Onto my layout today! I want to talk about texting for a minute. We do it, our kids do it, nearly everyone’s doing it! And let me tell you, there are MEMORIES in these texts messages! Yes! Think about it. Has your child ever texted you from someone else’s cell phone or maybe they sent a sweet text grandma and grandpa! These are some pretty fun everyday moments that I want to document and scrapbook about! These sweet text messages are wonderful reminders of our relationships, personalities and our everyday life.
I work most weekends and my husband is home with our girls. Sometimes Sari and Hannah really miss me, especially during school when I only get to see them at night. So, often times they ask to use their Dad’s phone and send me a sweet little text message. It totally makes my day and makes them feel better at the same time. To print them, I screen shot them and upload them to Walgreen’s right from the APP in my phone. I usually wait until their Instagram prints go on sale before I print, but they’re saved, safe and sound 🙂
So, my challenge to you is to start documenting those sweet or funny text messages! Here are the finishing touches and lots of layers banners on my layout. I’ve added a bunch of little stickers from my stash from Amy Tangerine, Shimelle, Elle’s Studio, Crate Paper, Michael’s Craft Store and Pink Fresh Studio!
Those adorable cork butterflies are new in my shop also! They come 10 in a package and are even self adhesive! So perfect for summer!
Thanks so much for spending your time with me today! I’ll see you very soon with some metallic star sequins and July 4th fun!!
