A Month of Celebrations!

I hope everyone here in Canada, had a great July 1st!  It was certainly the hottest one (33 and with the humidity - 43C) I can remember. July 1st is also my dad's birthday, but this year was special as he turned 90!  Even though he's become a bit more frail this year, it's amazing how well he does.  He decided to quit golfing this year, he didn't like his scores!

Happy 4th of July to my daughter and all my American friends out there too!  Sizzix is having a Blog Hop July 3 - 7th to celebrate their new blog, and July 4th, so check it out!

Here's a layout to start the summer off with:

It's hard to believe that these two have graduated from high school this year!  It seems like just yesterday that my niece Kayla was this goofy little girl.  She's still goofy, but a beautiful young woman!
I used Carta Bella's "Cool Summer" collection for this layout.  The flowers were made from Sizzix's Bloom w/leaves die (I think I use this one the most!).

It's once again, Urban Scrapbook's Monthly Layout Challenge.  The kits have a lot of stuff in them this month!  This collection from American Crafts is very summery too!

I used that Sizzix Flower die again here and also Tim Holtz's Paper Rosette die . I decided to make a banner, machine sewing the lines and using the chalkboard stickers, chipboard stickers, and ribbon.  My favourite place is Butchart Gardens in Victoria.  We try and visit every year; I don't think I could ever get tired of going!  Hope you visit Urban's blog and see what the other designers came up with.  You won't be disappointed!

Hope you all have a great weekend!
Until next time,

My mom has always wanted to go to Butchart Gardens! Your layout makes me want to go too.
