I did a little playing today. I love this new Stampin' Up! stamp set, holiday trinkets. It's pure and simple stamping. I live the stylized images. I stamped each image on a whisper white square and then stamped again on scrap whisper white. I then cut around each image and popped them up on stampin' dimensionals. The designer paper is from the Washington Apple paper pack.
Corie asked to see the scrapbook pages Nicholas did yesterday. I decided to start him out on 6 x 6 pages because they are quick and simple. One photo per page usually. He picked out the colors with a little guidance from mom. He picked out his own title and stamped it all himself. He sponged around the edges of the first page. This was my kids' first flight ever so they were pretty excited!
We all went out to dinner as a family last night at Axel's Bonfire. I love this restaurant. Such yummy food and decor! This was the first time we took the whole family there. We usually don't do anything more adventurous than Perkins with the boys but we decided to splurge and everyone had a great time! A little funny story-
My husband wore his really rust button down shirt. It turns out the staff at Bonfire have new uniforms and they are really rust button down shirts! A pretty random color if you ask me. My husband looked liked he worked there! LOL! I told him to go up to the bar and ask for drinks like he was a waiter. hehehe.
It's the last day of summer tomorrow for my kids. Then it's back to school and back to routines. I think we are all ready for it. Happy Labor Day!
