Can you believe it's been a month since the days of school homework? If you're like me you have to stop yourself from thinking "It's only one more month until we're back into homework". As a
little bit of a control freak, planner, I struggle with living in the moment, a lot. But that's another story for another time.
It's my turn over at the Let's Capture These Memories blog today. I have a super simple design with lots of straight lines, and as usual a few layers to share with you. I'm still working with Crate Paper Pretty Party Collection, and still finding lots of variety to go with pretty much any photo.
These photos of my girls doing homework in the back of the van are nothing special really. If you look through my scrapbooks you'll see other similar photos of routine/mundane activities. I've tried hard to make a point of incorporating the 'everyday' into my scrapbooks. I think that is something that many of us struggle with (unless of course you keep up with Project Life). It's easy to get caught up in the events, vacations,and other milestones. There are, however, so many other day-to-day occurrences, that make up our lives, I believe it is just as much fun to look back and remember, celebrate, and appreciate them as we would birthdays, or first day of school

In other news...my friend Patricia kindly hooked me up with an Instagram photo of my layout as it appears in the August issue of Scrapbook Trends! So I can say I've seen a photo of the photo, but I can't wait to see the real deal as soon as the magazine shows up in The Scrapbook Cottage where I work!
