I know Summer is still going strong. After all we have been hitting nearly 100 degrees this year. The heat indexes have tipped to 112 which is pretty high for these parts of the “northern South”. I recently saw a challenge in the Pixel Scrapper forum and decided to run with it. It involved foxes and furry so a fall kit was born called Fall Flurry. The colors kind of just popped out at me and so Ive been really busy putting this one together. I really love how its coming together and can’t wait to see it all when its finished. Autumn is, after all, my favorite time of year! This will be going out sometime in August as I still have to finish the elements, word art, and journal cards. If you have anything specific you would like to see added let me know and I will see what I can do.

I don’t think Ive ever been busier than this Summer! My oldest left the nest which was a huge adjustment for us this year. We have been decluttering our home these past few weeks. It’s feeling better and better. We also plan on doing a little weekend camping before the Summer is over.  Then September my 6 year old will be starting school after labor day and so I will be pretty busy getting into a new routine with her as we go through first grade. Mind you this is with a 2 year old to keep me busy as well so it will be quite the challenge! Hopefully once we establish ourselves I will be able to get back to the “grind”.

August’s blog train is fixing to roll out but I’m not sure I’ll have something for it this time. Although I might surprise myself – we shall see. September is a Zoo theme where most are picking a zoo animal. Well I’m more a farm animal kind of gal so I’ll be doing a Petting Zoo mini kit hopefully. October is Pumpkin Spice and the colors are very pretty so I am looking forward to getting another fall kit together. I can’t have enough Autumn kits myself !

Before I go I wanted to share with you a Meal Planner freebie for your planner. I try to make these each month for myself so I plan on sharing them with you.

This Meal Planner Freebie was made using my Garden Tales scrapbook kit. You can find it in the Shoppe here or on Pixel Scrapper if you are a subscriber here.

I also made one back in June to match my Nature Escape freebie so I will have to get that one to you all in the future.

Well it sure is amazing how fast the first half of the year has gone by! I know the second will fly just as quick! In the meantime I hope everyone has been having a delightful Summer! Be sure and check back for another meal planner freebie and the Fall Flurry freebie which is coming in August!
