Hi There!

So...it's been a while, hasn't it?! How is the summer going for you so far? Ours has been crazy/busy but also a lot of fun. And I can't believe how fast it's going.
My girls spent a couple of weeks getting spoiled rotten by their grandma and all of our family in Edmonton. They had an amazing time and we are very lucky to have a very wonderful extended family that the girls just love! While they were gone out West, Steve and I went on a boating trip down the Trent-Seven Waterway here in Ontario. We had crappy weather, but loved the relaxing days on the boat and some nice 'together' time.
After that, I joined the girls in Edmonton for a week. I am so grateful to be able to go home again. My mom still lives in the same home where I grew up and having her bang pots around in the kitchen brings back so many wonderful memories.
One of the radio stations had a retro weekend while I was there. That was such a blast from the past! Hearing the same songs now that I used to listen to back then, in the house where I grew up...well it made me stop and relive the past. It almost made me feel like you can go back again, if even for the length of a song!
So my retro weekend inspired me and when I came home, I dug out my We Are Memories paper and made this card, reminding me of the 'good old days'!

Paper and chipboard are from We Are Memory Keepers, Paper Frills are from Doodlbug Design, colored with chalk ink, flower is from Prima, rhinestone is from Kaisercraft, sentiment is from JoAnne's
