Farewell Summer 2012!

It is hard to believe that the summer is nearly over! We have had an incredibly busy summer here in the house. 


My six swimmers enjoyed a fun and exciting summer swim season with Knolls swim club! There were many cold mornings in the pool, but they had FUN!

The oldest 5 immediately proceeded to participate in the Summer Theater Camp production of The Music Man. My oldest, Karen, had the role of Marian the Librarian. Xavier was Winthrop. Victoria and Isabella were pick-a-little ladies (and Victoria also doubled as the Town Constable). Sophia was Gracie Shinn, the mayor's daughter. What a great show!

This past weekend, we celebrated one year since the accident that nearly took the lives of my husband, Todd and my oldest daughter, Karen. Luckily, they are both healing and healthier than they were last year. Here they are in Acadia National Park in Maine.

 I had a few thank you notes to make, so I thought I would create one with my stamp set: Stippled Nature.


I used a tomato soup card stock base with the new Sun-kissed autumn designer paper pack from Gina K. The sentiment is from Assorted Greetings. I added some buttons from the stash on the side and rounded one corner. Super simple & easy!

 What do you think? 

So what was your favorite memory of summer 2012?  Stay tuned tomorrow for a special hop with Gina K!
