I did manage to watch some Wimbledon as our Canadians did an amazing job - wow semi-finals for both men's and women's; and then Genie Bouchard made the final - wow, double and triple wow !!!
In preparing for my vacation, I decided that I would use the June Scraptastic kit - I got the Best Day of My Life kit and the add-on. I put together a rather large add-on from my stash and the leftovers from the May Daylight kit (details below). But then, on the Thursday before my vacation started - that would be last Thursday the 10th, my July kit arrived (I got the Either Way kit and add-on). I had previously decided that I would leave the July kit for after my vacations; but then I opened the box!!! What a quandry LOL. How did I resolve it - well, I prepared a second add-on to that kit and brought both with me on vacation !!! So I think I have enough stuff to last me the month. I do plan on scrapping a lot during my vacations - most evenings in fact.
I get up really early - tour the garden, come back in for coffee and a large breakfast and then on out to the garden for a good part of the morning. I come in about 11 or so and stay indoors for lunch, a few chores, shower time and some playtime with the cats. Then I head on back out to relax under a tree, gazing at the view, reading (I will post a couple of reviews shortly), watching tennis and just taking advantage of the peace and quiet. Come the late afternoon, I am back indoors for a cocktail (yup it is vacations, right ? LOL), a garden dinner and scrappy time, accompanied by You Tube or Netflix. I am a lucky girl am I not ???
Ok, well about that June kit; after all that is why you are here.
First, I took the left-over wood veneer, flair, exclusive die cuts and other embellis from the May kit, and added them to the June kit. I then added a few fun things from my stash like ribbon and twine from Stampin' Up, enamel dots (I love enamel dots), brads and some washi tape
