*Last Holiday Monday of Summer 2007*

The more people I talk to lately, the more I realize I am not alone this summer. I found that the summer just flew by. I think my 23 days worth of vacation in July helped the summer to fly by. It seems like it all went so fast, but then, on the other hand, my trips to Regina and BC seem like forever ago.

Strange how time and your mind work.

We've had a great last weekend of summer.... a BBQ with friends on Saturday, an entire day at Calaway Park with friends yesterday. So far today, just laziness, although a trip to the grocery store to pick up lunch items is on the agenda... and I think a trip to the rec centre for the guys to go swimming as well.

Then tonight it's early to bed for everyone as the alarms will ring and we'll all have to get up and at 'em. Alex is heading off to Jr. High on the bus this year and the bus arrives at his stop at 7:39am. Matthew will be leaving here around 7:45 to walk to school for an 8am start.

Early mornings!

Today's card is a Bella card I decided to make a few days ago. I got the layout from Lauren's blog.

I wish I would have stamped the yellow cardstock with some sort of background design before putting it all together... it looks so plain.

Items Used:
*Cardstock: Barely Banana, Bashful Blue, Brilliant Blue, Whisper White
*Ink: Stampin' Up! Craft White ink; Black Classic Ink; Bashful Blue, Barely Banana, Brilliant Blue, Blush Blossom and Creamy Caramel markers
*Images: Stamping Bella and A*Muse
*Embellishments: Sakura Stardust clear gel pen, Brilliant Blue Grosgrain Ribbon
