Tri-fold shutter card

Wow..I have been a busy little bee this Summer and haven't posted in ages. Wanted to show you a new card I just learned to make..I know, it looks a bit overwhelming with all the cuts and scores..but actually its very easy and fun to design. You can find the tutorial HERE on the Craftiblog.For this card I have used MME designer papers and the adorable Gorjuss girl from set 1. I'll be making lots of these tri-fold cards now that I know how easy they are..and a great way to use up little scraps of papers! hugs,T

While I was away.....

Ahhh.....Summer is in full spring and we have been playing hard the last few weeks. I haven't posted any creations because we have been so very busy. We went to Myrtle Beach, SC with some friends of ours a few weeks ago and had a blast. Our kids had so much fun playing together, and it was wonderful that they entertained themselves to give Mom a break!!

I took so many pictures, it will be a job trying to get all the pages finished...but beach photos are my absolute fav!! Here are a couple of my favorite ones:

Last week we took the boys camping with my parents and siblings to celebrate the 4th! My Dad picked a spot WAY back in the mountains near Joyce Kilmer Forest. My Dad had the camper and the rest of us tent was definitely an experience all in itself! We camped right beside a river and the boys had a blast playing in the water and collecting their "treasures".

We even had our own little mini fireworks show and marshmallow roast!

The Smokey Mountains are absolutely stunning, if you have never been then you need to definately put it on your list of places to go. I am so very lucky to live so close.
