We got a summer themed color challenge for the July CREATE magazine. Red, 3 shades of blue, tan, and white. I don’t usually get very many photos for the fourth of July but the red made me think of berries! These are pictures of us picking strawberries in our front yard. What a treat!

For the CREATE journaling challenge this month, we showed off how to use a list. We went to this favorite park 3 days in a row while visiting San Jose so a list was a great way to recap the overall experience.

This layout was created for the birthday theme challenge for CREATE. I took photos of Calvin at his 1 1/4, 1 1/2, 1 3/4, and 2 year “birthdays” for comparison. They really turn from babies into little kids during the second year.

This layout was so hard for me! I was challenged by the March issue of CREATE to used chipboard. I’m not a chipboard user. 😉 But I took my assignment VERY SERIOUSLY and thought long and hard about to do something a little different. I decided to recreate the railing to our tree fort with chipboard to emphasize the photos. I actually used a needle and stitched rafia through the chipboard for dimension. Read more about it in the magazine!
