Soccer Girl - Season 2 begins

Over at If It's Groovy, My Girl's Soccer Layout is up!
Deb, couldn't have picked a better day to post it! Yesterday was Becky's 1st day to this years season!
To get the details on how I did the page, head over to check it out!

Here is the story:

My girl in her new soccer gear for Newfoundland. We were heading over to my Parent's house for dinner after just getting our girl's new soccer gear. My Brother-In-Law got her signed up for us, since we would be arriving after sign ups. Our girl (Becky) was so excited. She wanted to wear the gear to my Parent's. We got there and the "Ooh's and Ahh's" were given! Then Grandma went to get her camera. Such a long wait for a 4 year old....which it did eventually turn out to be a long wait. Since Grandma's camera batteries were dead! The last picture she is sitting on the soccer ball saying, "Come on already!" But that's how I got to get the pictures of our girl being.....Becky!

Back in Jersey the Summer brought us $1 movie days. They were usually past releases and only shown in the middle of the day. 
BUT it allowed my daughter to get her first movie theater under her belt!
Her first trip only lasted through the previews and about 20 minutes into the movie. 
BUT we got to test the waters!
Of course, after getting popcorn and a drink...it wasn't only a buck!

So, when it came to birthday parties and gift giving ideas. Movies came to mind. Costco has passes for $10 you can buy and that includes a snack pack too! 
Here is a birthday card I made for one of my daughter's friends.
  
Using an old VHS tape that broke. I took the film and created a folded ribbon!
Here is a better view!

Hope you enjoyed what we have offered you!
Stat Tuned...We have another birthday party tomorrow and I got another Movie Pass!

Here in Newfoundland Summer is just peeking through Spring here and there.
We got a great year to see icebergs as they drifted by and experienced a number that got caught on the ocean's floor during low tides.
Here are a few pictures of our sights....

This once our first view of the iceberg back in April on the 22nd!


Then when my mom was coming to visit we went back over the check on that same iceberg 
on May 13th!

Mom arrived at night on May 19th and they next day we when over to show her. She was on a quest to see as many as possible during her visit.

So, My Mom did visit on the best time. She got to see 4 large icebergs during her visit. My family with an iceberg in the background.

 This was at the edge of the harbor in our town.

On a trip as they say here, "Around the Bay" we got more views.

 Loved this one. Hubby said, it looks like a long liner (Fishing boat)

I enjoy the outdoors and our family has been camping once already! With plans for some more to come!

Slam into Summer Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Slam into Summer Blog Hop! You should have arrived here after visiting HEATHER'S blog, Scrapping The Guys. If not, then just go and visit If It's Groovy and you will be at the start of the hop!!!

We would love to have you follow our blogs and get to know us as well as give us a chance to know you :)

Here one of my favorite pictures of my daughter that captures her spirit. That cute silly face always smiling and lovin' life!

I love Webster's Pages Bloomers since I saw them on a Christmas layout. I couldn't wait to get my hands on some...well I did but they are so pretty all I could do was look at them! So, this was my first page I used them!!!!! Finally got them out and used some of my stash! I love it!

Another fun thing I love to do is reusing things. 
Under my title I used a clean piece of fabric from one of my son's stained up onesies.
Rolled up the edges a bit so you get the idea of a towel. 
Plus, it allowed my title to show off!

So, I hope you are all enjoying a chance to jump in the pool! Here in Canada we are getting great sunny weather just not ready to go jumping into any water (Outdoors anyway!)
