This weekend is our Parish Festival. I am volunteering at one of the game booths Friday night. After my shift, Eddie and the boys will meet me and we will get to enjoy the fair. Pray for good weather!

Saw some really cool stuff from Pink Paislee, October Afternoon and Crate Paper. You also need to check out Chatterbox's new release too! Their booth was gorgeous! I wish I would have taken more pics but i was just in awe of everything and having a great time I didn't take the camera out as much as I should have. I am hoping Heather will email me some pics because she took tons!
The best part of this trip for me was getting to meet friends who up until now, I just spoke to online. It is so great putting a face to a name! I also got to see "old" friends and catch up with what's going on in their lives. All in all a great weekend with great people!

The boys arrived safely yesterday and they absolutely loved the plane ride. It is so good to have them home! We took my dad to the airport today and he should arrive home shortly. Want to say thanks again to mom and dad and Uncle Tony. Uncle Tony spoils them rotten with video games and movies and the boys love it! Your a cool dude Uncle Tony! The boys are already planning next years trip!

Wanted to post my layouts for the July All Moments Remembered kit. Again, another month chock full of product and I just love the colors. Make sure to visit Heather and Debbie's blogs to see what they did with this amazing kit as well as our Guest Designer, Danielle Flanders!
I received my copy of this new idea book by Kitty Foster and Wendy McKeehan. I have a layout in there about my Bff's Nicole and Erika. It is a beautiful book with lots of great layouts all about friendships. You can order it here.

These are the American Falls.
These are the Canadian or Horseshoe Falls. Do you see that boat? That is the Maid of the Mist. It takes you right by the American Falls and practically into the Canadian Falls. They have to hand out rain ponchos because you get completely soaked! I was amazed at how smooth and steady the boat was as we were looking at the Canadian Falls! We also walked through tunnels and went behind the falls. It was amazing and again the ponchos came in handy!
We saw all the sights and even went to the casino one night. We are not big gamblers but wanted to try our luck at the slots. We lost! We had a great time and thanks mom and dad for watching the boys so we could get away!
Monday night as we were walking around Niagara, Nicole calls. She sounds weird. She knew we were away with no internet. She informs me I am one of 35 finalists for the Chatterbox Design Team Audition! I go crazy on the streets of Niagara Falls. Never in a million years did I think my name would be on that list! I am so excited and honored to be on that list with such talented ladies! Did you see some of those names? I wish everyone good luck as we now are waiting for product to be mailed to us to make a layout/project to see who makes it on the team.
I have a long list of things to do today. One of which is picking out a paint color for the upstairs bathroom. Have a great day!

When it got dark, we all headed out to the cul-de-sac to watch the firework show. Eddie and Erika's husband, JR put on a great show for the crowd and it is definitely a great way to end the BBQ.

We are gearing up for our big July 4th BBQ tomorrow. My friends Nicole and Erika will be here as well as several of our neighbors. Lots of fun, food and fireworks! Eddie and JR put on quite the show when it gets dark. The kids love it!
Got an exciting email this morning about a new idea book by Memory Makers called Fabulous Friendships. It should be hitting stores soon. I have a layout in there and I can't wait to take a look!
Ok, I need to go clean something. Have a great day!
