Monday MME Challenge

Happy Monday,
Did you have a great weekend?  I sure did!  Saturday I met my friend at Archiver's and we did a morning and afternoon crop.  It was wonderful.  During the day is MUCH better for me to crop than at night.  I am just not a night person but boy can I get a lot done during the day!  I got done 4 projects!!! That is a record for me!  Sunday was just family day with going to the pool, riding bikes and playing outside and then grilling out dinner!  You couldn't ask for anything more perfect.  I wish every day we could have the weather that we did on Sunday- sunny- warm- high 82 degrees and just perfect in the shade!!

Well, My Mind's Eye had another fantastic challenge and I just had to have some fun.  Every once in awhile I like to scrap things that aren't events- birthdays, holidays etc.  and this challenge was calling my mind because it was perfect for my scrapping itch and I soooo wanted to play with my new collection of Nostalgia.  Oh do I love this collection.  It is so yummy!  Anyhooo  here are the details of the challenge:

Details: This one is super fun. Tina Walker came up with the idea. She suggested it to me and I thought it was *fabulous*. It's called Halfway There.Did you know that July is halfway through 2012? EEK! Can you believe it? So the challenge is this....document it. Document the actual day (day 183) halfway through the year, document the month...document it however you interpret it.


So my take on the challenge was to capture a "typical" day (day 185) in our life.  Our life isn't very exciting but that is the way we like it.  So this day:

1.  Jack had a dentist apt at 7:30
2.  Our attic fans were installed-- aaahhhhh our house is now cool!
3.  Grocery store
4.  play time outside
5.  night bike ride with dad
6.  night night!!

Here is my take on the challenge:


I used my Silhouette to create the title.  I stacked several layers on top of each other to make it look like chipboard.  I then cut it out a final time in the pattern paper!

Everything is My mind's Eye!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will be back tomorrow with a new project.  See you then!  Have a wonderful and crafty day!
