I'm Still Standing (Sort Of)

Wow, feels like forever since I've posted anything on the blog but don't worry, it's because I have some cool things in store for everyone. In store, get it? Hah! Between having both my little dudes home all day, the crazy heat in the Midwest & getting ready for a garage sale (what was I thinking?!?) I haven't had much time to design but August 1st there will be some new products, new freebies & a huge sale!

Movie Night

I don't know about everyone else but I've got a couple of little dudes who love going to the movies. Problem is that they don't like the loud noise & dark theater very much. Lucky for us, I found out about Sensory Friendly Films through AMC Theaters. This is done in partnership with the Autism Society where each month a first run kids movie is shown with the lights turned up & the sound turned down. My boys love it because it's not as scary or overwhelming while we love it because they are on Saturday mornings when the prices are cheaper & Daddy can go! Check out more information on the program including upcoming movies & locations near you here.

Of course you can't take many pictures while you're in a movie theater & we haven't hit up any outdoor movies this summer so it was hard to think of a picture I could use with the new kit Movie Night by Designing Divas. And I had to find something cool because look at how neat this kit is!

When I ended up doing was going to movie poster site & snagging a low resolution copy of a poster from The Lorax movie (most excellent if you haven't seen it!) & making a layout with it. I'm hoping to get more use out of the kit next year when we start taking the boys to movies through our city park district.

Trucks and Tractors

Love, love, love the new kit Trucks and Tractors from B2N2 Scraps. Did I mention I love it? With two boys who are obsessed with all things construction, this is a great kit to scrap all my pictures of them at touch-a-truck events.

What makes this kit even bigger & better is the Construction Pack filled with some of the essential tools construction workers use & a free coordinating mini kit! You can use the free mini kit to participate in the July Use It or Lose It challenge over at the STS forum & if you like, you can also use parts from the full kit which will be on sale for 25% off the rest of July. Told you I loved this kit!

Too Dancy

Even if you have only little boys, sometimes you'll find a need for a little girl kit & Too Dancy from Mommy Me Time Scrapper can fit your needs perfectly. This fun kit is made for dance or ballet recitals but can be used for so much more! In addition to the main kit, you can pick up a worn paper pack, quick pages, word art, glitters, & extra alphas or grab everything in the bundle for some great savings.

Summer Treats

One thing I just love about summer is all the sweet things to eat & of course ice cream is high on that list! And a perfect kit to scrap all those messy ice cream eating sprees is the new Summer Treats from B2N2 Scraps. A fun summery palette & lots of sweet elements make this a great addition to any scrapping stash, especially mine!
