Yipppeeee! It’s Summertime!

Well, not exactly.  Our weather hasn’t been cooperating but the school year is coming to an end and we’ve made plans for a little family trip excursion.  Photos will follow, I’m sure.  Lots of things have been happening lately.  Brandi has graduated community college with her AA and is transferring to State this Fall; Jake will be graduating from high school pretty soon, in about a week and a half; Raiden is READING!  Gwen will be turning 8 by the end of this week (hence the family trip excursion).  I’ve been playing (quite frequently) with my new Cricut Expression 2 (Anniversary Edition).  My hubby got it for my birthday/Mother’s Day present.  It cuts like a dream and I love all the content that came preloaded.  Here’s a sample of the things I’ve been creating with it, especially with all the lovelies I’ve been printing from
