There are so many amazingly crafty people out there, I just love seeing the imagination of other people and finding new things to create. Since my daughter's first birthday is coming up in a few months I have been scouring online to find ideas on birthday decorations. I have come across birthday banners that are just so adorable that I thought I would try to make one myself.
I used my Cricut to cut the shapes out of the scrapbook paper, then I used ribbon to connect them all. This was my first testing piece and I think it turned out pretty well, I won't be using this one so maybe I will sell it on Etsy for a few dollars, who knows.
I had a lot of fun creating it and now I can't wait to make one for Katelyn's birthday!

Twice a year one of my mom's very good friends puts on an English Tea. This year was the first time I was able to attend and it just so happens it was Katelyn's very first Tea.
She looked so pretty in her dress and she was so well behaved I couldn't have asked for better.
It seems like July has been whirling by at a rapid pace! I am so far behind in posting, it seems like it has been forever. I wanted to post about our 4th of July weekend, it was one of the best weekends I have had in a long time. I had 4 days off of work and Steve had the weekend off as well, so we had some quality family time. We spent Saturday taking Katelyn to her first trip to the ocean, the weather was beautiful. We flew a kite, some of us better than others (lets just say the kite and I were not friends), Lucy ran and played in the water and Katelyn laughed with excitement each time she saw the waves. We all had a great time and were exhausted by the end of the day.
