Summer is still kicking my butt and I’m completely sick of driving in circles! Summer school is over at the end of this month so I’m trying to hang in there. Alexis seems to be working really hard and we’re getting good reports from the teachers. I’m hoping that she manages to pass the LEAP test this time. She’s going to be devastated if she has to repeat the fourth grade.
Even though life has been chaotic, I did manage to fit a little bit of scrapbooking in this week. I’m here to share the pages I finished! I have a few more partially finished projects in piles around my space. I’ll post those as I get them finished. (Hopefully.)
I used one of the latest Photoshop Friday episodes from Jessica Sprague to create this page about visiting the new baby goats at my grandparents' house last Easter. The human kids were having a conversation about what goats say.
When my baby brother was born, my Mom and Stepdad wanted to take photos of the three of us together. As you can guess, we were less than cooperative. I can distinctly remember being told that he was "NOT a Toy". Ha! I'm submitting this page to the Darker Side challenge on Scrapbook.com. I don't usually distress and scrap with darker colors so this page was quite hard for me!!
My design is based on a Creating Keepakes sketch. I swear it's straight IRL, my photography is just off. Ugh!
I loved the colors in this kit so I paired it with a photo that I recently took of Alexis. I wrote her a little letter in the journaling to let her know how I feel about her and her dreams.

Audrey Neal's Softly Digital Kit
The journaling font is called Legion Slab.
I combined the gorgeous Family Rules digital kit and the 3 Strips Template by Audacious Designs to create this page. I loved the word art so much that I used it as journaling. (I’m not on Audrey’s creative team, I just really like her designs.)
