Summertime is here and that means it is time to start thinking about summer parties and entertaining. The summer months will be filled with graduations, showers, BBQs, and pool parties. One of the best parts of throwing a party is deciding on a theme and thanks to the internet you can find ideas for any theme you may have in mind. Popsicles for a pool party, gingham for a family reunion picnic, and the ever popular watermelon works for just about every summer get together! You can introduce your guests to the theme of your party through the invitations that you create for your event and then carry that theme through with handcrafted summer party decor.

I started scrapping in 2006 and was quickly addicted!I was an avid scrapper until late summer of 2010 when we started our adoption journey, at that point I was overwhelmed with paperwork (and emotions!) and I had to put something on the back burner in my life but I knew I would eventually come back to it.
We welcomed our daughter home from China in December of 2011 and a few months later I found my groove again and pulled out all of those supplies that had been tucked away.
I started out scrapping again doing traditional layouts, but at the beginning of this year I jumped into Project Life and I love it!
When I’m not scrapping I am usually spending time with our daughters which means library time, going on walks, thrifting (they love it as much as I do!) or watching Kung Fu Panda for the millionth time.I also have an Etsy shop Panda Eight Designs where I sell scrapbooking flair that I design.
