We Barely Knew Ye ...

Here we are with only a few days left in August .... where on Earth DID the summer go??? Kids are back in school, schedules are returning to normal, and the SU Summer Mini Catalog will be replaced in a few days by the Holiday Mini.

I was soooo loving all the nautically-themed stuff in this Summer Mini. And I was soooooo hoping that it would make the transition to the the BIG Catalog ... which it didn't ... sigh ... I just hafta console myself with all the wonderful new stuff in the Big Catty and the Holiday Mini (of which there is MUCH!).

Stamps: Open Sea, Perfect Punches
Paper: Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Nautical Expedition DSP
Ink: Early Espresso
Accessories: Beveled Window Pane, Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribobn, Wide Oval Punch, Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine, Tasteful Trim Bigz Die, Cuttlebug Tiny Bubbles Embossing Folder, Ticket Corner Punch, Vintage Brad, Pop-Up Glue Dots

We've been having a GREAT time during our last summer fling up at our family condo on Bear Lake. All the girls had a manicure/pedicure party yesterday afternoon (my toenails are now sporting a fresh new coat of "A Grape Fit" nail polish ... not sure what is on my fingernails!) My hubby flew our plane up yesterday, and my daughter and I both took rides out over the lake. Smiley from millan.net The weather was gorgeous ... here we are after landing (and my hair look like we were riding with the canopy open ... which we WEREN'T ... one of the things I love about a mini vacay at the beach ... hair and makeup are secondary ...

Here is a picture I took as we flew over the condo. The little speck I am pointing to on the beach is actually my niece and my nephew (we zoomed in and checked)! Kinda cool that the ended up in the photo!! (You may hafta click on the photo to see where I circled our condo and my speck-of-a-niece-and-nephew!) Ahhhhh, Summer ... we barely knew ye ...
