ADORNit Blog Hop

It's time for the Adornit Blog Hop!!!

A few weeks ago I received an email from Georgana asking me if I and the ladies of my new Scrapbooking Site would like to participate in her Summer Blog Hop....uuuuh yeh!! Absolutely! What an amazing opportunity for us!

This just so happens to coincide with our Grand Opening Celebration that we have going on this while you're Blog Hopping, hop on over to our site as well! Cookin'up Creations

I wanted to share a layout that even though it's simple and clean, it focuses on the importance of our "Favorite Thing to Do in the Summer", which is eat watermelon. My son is now eight years old and could eat watermelon every single day if given the opportunity....this layout is of him with his very first water melon slices, so many years ago....

A Slice of Summer

Journaling reads:
Today you had your first piece of watermelon. Just by the look on your face, we could tell that you weren't quite sure what to think about it. After your first bite, I think you became a Watermelon lover just like the rest of the family.
