Happy Saturday!

Well, we all enjoyed a nice relaxing morning and a chance to sleep in! 
We had such a fun day yesterday as Kailyn & Ryan's school went to Cultus Lake water slides!  It was a blast and the weather was just perfect!! We're already looking forward to going back in the summer sometime.
I wish I had pictures to share but I decided not to take my camera.  I wasn't too keen on just leaving alone when I went on the water slides with the kids. So ... next time I'll have to take it with me.

Just wanted to share a couple of layouts that I did.  I was asked to be Guest Designer for the month of June for Riff Raff Designs.  I was super excited because they are a Canadian company (in Edmonton!) and they make these awesome laser cut chipboard designs! They've got amazing stuff!! 
"Ocean View"
I lightly painted the chipboard with a cream colored paint.  Then I sprayed them with Tattered Angels mists - 2 different colors and sponged it off a little bit with a paper towel.
On this layout I just left the chipboard raw as I liked the look with the papers.
Well, that's about it from me. 
Have a wonderful weekend!
