It's all about scrapping a summer tradition. Living in Minnesota, my favorite season is summer. It is our reward for enduring cold, snow, ice, sleet and mostly gray skies all winter! It's really spectacular here in the summer. When summer arrives, we try to spend as much time as we can at the family cabin on a lake in northern Minnesota. Thanks, Pam, for this excellent idea for an AAM scrapbook page. Check it out here and please do join in and share with us your favorite summer traditions or places.

We had a wonderful time celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary with our family. We even were treated to a limo ride to the party at our eldest son and daughter-in-law's home, complete with champagne and caviar. Oh, my, it was so fun!! TFL (BTW, I took the photo using a tripod and the timer feature on my camera. That means I scurried to set it up and get in the photo on time!

It had black paper pages and she simply glued the photos to the page and then printed notes with white ink. No other decorations! The scrapbook is falling apart and the photos are fading, so, I think it is good I am scanning and giving them a home in a new printed album. What do you think of the baby carriage? It was used for me, my brother and my sister. By the time I was expecting a first child, baby carriages were much improved and so I was given a gift of a new carriage that could convert to a stroller. TFL The pages for this album go together quickly with Lynn's Life In Pictures Album templates. I'm actually further along than the number indicates because I am doing renumbering as I go along.

Lila Bleu is one of my all time favorites because I love the color blue. It's been a favorite of mine ever since I was a young girl.

So many possibilities! Thank you! Next month is Austism Awareness month so I am sharing that I am connected to the autism community through my son, daughter-in-law and grandson. My son and daughter-in-law started a school called the Holland Center for children on the autism spectrum and also organize an annual 5K Run for Autism in Minneapolis in the month of May. TFL *The top photo was taken by a photographer from the Minneapolis Star &amp; Tribune and appeared in an article in which my daughter-in-law was interviewed about the vaccine controversy after the recent measles outbreak. She is not anti-vaccination, however, she is a strong advocate for increasing vaccine safety since our grandson is vaccine injured.

One idea was all about ampersands, so, that is where this layout started. The ampersand is from the Heartwell Italic font. Then, when I went to Katie's new Blendable Layers Kit, I got the idea for the theme Bloom &amp; Grow. I love experimenting with the blendable layers kits. It's a fun surprise!
