  1. My favorite summer activity is going to the beach in the evening. I'm not sure if it's the fact it's cooler (and that I can wear shorts or pants instead of a bathing suit--ha ha!), but I love late afternoon/early evenings at the beach. My favorite project I've made this summer would have to be the card I made for my dad's birthday. I hadn't used ribbons on cards before & I loved the effect!

  5. My favourite summer activity is taking my 4 little boys *under 5 yrs!* to the lake! They have a blast! I love watching them play in the water and sand like they're experiencing it each time for the first time. And I love relaxing and bathing in the sun with my hubby!

    My favourite project that I've made this summer is a 20 page 8x8 scrapbook for my Moms 58th birthday. My husband, myself and my kids got outdoor family portraits done so those are the focal points of the album. Her birthday is in 2 days and I hope she loves it!

So for my fav. summer project is in the works I am currently working on a Summer mini scrapbook for my son as that is one of his homework for summer I take the pics and we work on the layouts together!

  7. Well hello Echo Park! My favorite thing to do is have fun in the sun with friends, kids, & family! No matter what you're doing (gardening, swimming, watching fireworks, barb-qing, sightseeing, lounging, swinging at the park, or even shopping) it's more fun to do it when the sun is shining (at least we feel that way in Seattle)!! Favorite project so far is a little mini tp tube album...it's not finished yet!!!!

  9. Watching the kids play baseball/softball.

    I've been in a bit of a scrap funk this summer, but did make a few things this weekend that are on my blog. One is a sun...so that's summery I guess :-)

  11. My favorite summer activity is going to the beach...which always ends up with hunting for sanddollars! But I also love camping, fishing, going for a drive in the mountains-more or less: Getting out of the house other than for work! LOL

    My favorite project would be the Digital Memory Cup and mini book I am working on for my 18th month old granddaughter. They moved away a lil over a month ago and I miss her TONS! You can see a few photos here, because it isn't finished yet!!

  12. My favorite summer activity is grilling out! We have a small garden and there is nothing like fresh veggies on the grill. The steaks aren't bad either. My favorite project this summer has been scrapping my pictures from our family vacay to Myrtle Beach. There is a pic of my favorite double layout on my blog. http://joshnwillsma.typepad.com/blog/

  18. My favorite summer activity is going for family walks in the evening. My daughters (3 and 15 months) love looking for bunnies, squirrels, lightening bugs, etc. Plus, it's nice to hang out as a family, not camped out in front of the tv.

    My favorite project this summer has been recently discovering that I LOVE making cards! I had always been intimidated by them for some reason, but now I think I enjoy making cards more than making layouts - gasp!! I'm still a novice, but I'm having fun!

    Here's a link to a couple of my cards...

  34. I really really enjoy going to the beach (since we live so close). However, I do not have any pages or projects yet about the beach....I do have a favorite card that I've made this summer...actually two:)

    The first one is a card using LAD stamps--a tree and bees!

  36. In the summer I love to pull out the kiddie pool or sprinkler for my kids and watch them have a great time... some times Mommy accidentally has to play too :) It's hard to pic a favorite project... I've made some layouts that I'm pretty darn proud of, I just need to add them to my blog. BTW, I'm LOVING the Walk in the Park line... Made a cute layout and have another in progress!
