Weekend Round Up and a Slow Scrap Chat!

How is your Saturday going?  Mine has been busy and I’m just getting a chance to stop and blog for today.  Though I have to admit that earlier this morning I did get off task with Facebook for a bit.  I went to post a photo I had edited of my husband and I got totally sidetracked.  That led to me needing a break from the computer for a bit, okay, I admit it, I went in for some kitten cuddles to reset my mind. Anyway, on to Connie’s news for today, shall we?

There’s a new bundle of templates ready to help you on your next layout!  Check out the July 2016 Template Bundle!


Available at Ginger Scraps, Gotta Pixel, and The Digi Chick.

Here are eight lovely layouts from Connie’s team showing off these fabulous templates!

The July 2016 Retiring Products Sale is underway as well so Connie can make room for more wonderful products in her stores.  I picked up School Blues today in this sale.  Tuesday and Wednesday I have teacher professional development classes with the Fine Arts team from my district.  I think I’ll make up some treats for my team and use this kit to create the tags/cards to go with them.  What are you going to get before it’s gone forever?

That’s all I have for today.  I hope you are enjoying your Saturday and I look forward to seeing you all at the Slow Scrap & Chat tonight!  I have one more layout to share with you before you head off (you’ll want to stay for the freebie at the end).  This is a layout I finished today using Connie’s #2016 July Collection.  Some of you may remember that my family just got back from a trip to Colorado last week.  This is one of the many special moments I captured on day 2 of the trip while we were hiking on an extinct volcano in New Mexico. It was one of our side stops on our way to Colorado.  What makes me love this one so much is that my husband has his arm around my son’s shoulders in one of those rare bonding moments and you can also see my two daughter’s running on ahead (Rachel is almost out of the frame she was so quick).


I turned this into a quick page as a freebie for all of you Connie Prince fans.  I replaced the journal card at the bottom with a journal spot for you.  Love the journal card?  Just pull it from the collection and then layer it over the paper at the bottom and you’ll be good to go!  Enjoy!



Live, Laugh, Scrap!
