month-in-review | july 2012

We were holding on to the last days of Summer during July, as school starts in early August for us here in East Tennessee. Swimming still seemed to be the major event going on for us, although both girls did  get new bikes, too.

The journaling spot slides in and out of the pocket I made by adhering the photo to the page on just three sides. You can find this download, and so many more, over on Avital's blog Creativity Prompt where she shares fun projects and even freebies each Friday. I also used her epoxy stickers a while back on a mini book project for Zach.

...but the highlight of the entire Summer had to be the trip to the American Girl store in Atlanta. Thanks to Nana & Papa and Oma & Uncle James, there was some extra moolah for the girls to shop with. Yes, a very eventful month and I'm happy to have it all written down and would surely have forgetten some of the details if not for this delightfully easy way to document highlights of our life.

The 2013 Month-In-Review mini book {the same one I'll be using} is now in the shop and ready to ship! Happy to say that many of you have already purchased your month-in-review mini's from the shop and are ready to join me as we greet 2013 with a pen in hand and highlights to capture.
