The Quilt Patch

I was privledged to visit my all time favorite quilt store while in Moose Jaw, SK a few weeks ago. The Quilt Patch is an amazing shop and they are one of the 'TOP 10' stores featured in the Better Homes & Gardens Quilt Sampler magazine. The owners are amazing and the kits & fabric are beautiful. I picked up a few quilt kits to work on in the winter months, since I don't know when I'll be back. If you can't make it there, they sell online...it's so fun to shop there!

Brad & Alicia (Hutfloetz) Smith's Wedding

We had the honor of attending Brad & Alicia's lucky 7's wedding a few weeks ago. My sister Christa was a bridesmaid for Alicia, I can remember the two of them being inseperable when they were younger. It was a beautiful wedding on a hot day in Moose Jaw, where the couple live. I was able to visit with many old classmates & friends during the wedding.
A funny little coincidence happened to us while staying at the hotel in Moose Jaw. Mom bumped into our cousin Shannon Snider....she was also married on 7-7-07 in a small ceremony in Moose Jaw...congratulations Shannon & Corey!

Collin & Amber Fischer's Wedding

We attended Collin & Amber Fischer's wedding in Saskatoon on July 14th (Collin is Cory's cousin). It was so lovely and wonderful to see everyone. The hilite of our day was of Ace & Scarlett at the wedding dance...they had a blast and were so cute dancing together.

Our family photo from that day.

Pool Fun

During our holidays a few weeks back, we had many opportunities to hit the swimming pools wherever we were. I enrolled Ace in 2-weeks of Swimming Lessons at the pool in Oxbow where I took all of my lessons as a child. He started in the Red Cross Preschool Swim program, Ducks level and was moved up to Sea Turtles, which he passed...guess we have a little swimmer in the family. Thank you to his wonderful teacher, Rhiannon, who was amazing with Ace...even when he was shouting 'help me, help me'.

It was definately great to hit the pool to beat the heat on our vacation...we had alot of water fun!

Canvas Frame Album

This was made by decorating two canvas frames and then attaching them together, creating a nice display item or mini/album.

1 wonderful summer holiday
The kids & I had a wonderful holiday in my hometown of Oxbow, Saskatchewan for the past two weeks. During the trip we were able to visit many friends & relatives and see lots of places. Thanks Mom & Dad for having us for the stay...we sort of turned your house upsidedown for a while. Cory joined us last Wednesday and we all drove back together. It's great to be back and I'll be working on getting on track with our normal routine this week.
Stay tuned as I get caught up from being away. I have lots of projects & updates to share and blog candy too!

Round Wedding Album

Here's another project I finished while at the Bloomin' Inn...a mini wedding album. It was offered as a class at Scrapbookers Bliss. I loved the cream & black theme throughout the book and have had many comments on the unique chipboard hat-box holder for the album...I may put some flowers on it as a finishing touch. Enjoy!

Book About Ace

I completed this book all about our son Ace during my most recent trip to the Bloomin' Inn. I have discovered that I like making mini-albums since they are so quick & easy to create. I am so pleased with this project that I may have just ended my scrapbooker slump, yay!
