My July page for Project 2011. For this layout, I used papers from K&Co.'s "Around the World" line. I made the puzzle piece by taking a plain white puzzle piece and covering it with a piece of pp. The cloud was hand cut and pop-dotted. The little sun piece came from an embellie pack that goes with the paper (hm, I just realized that it looks like an ant crawled on there right as I took the picture- sneaky little bugger). Journaling reads:
"July 1- Mama & I completed a 1,000 piece puzzle...in ONE day! July 3- BBQ @ Joshua's house for the 4th July 5- Mama & I started our road trip. Two days in Pensacola scrapping, swimming & shopping. July 8- Bid farewell to Pensacola & decided on a whim to drive down the coast from Pensacola to Destin, stopping at Navarre Beach & Fort Walton on the way. Then headed north for Alabama, taking only back roads, no interstate. No GPS either, just a road map. Drove through so many cute little towns & spent the night in Eufaula, AL. July 9- Explored the beautiful little town of Eufaula. Hit up the local Goody's & decided several hundred $$$ later that we best bid adieu to Eufaula. Hopped in our now heavily loaded down car & headed for home, still sticking to our back roads only & no GPS rule...except for that one time when we needed to find a Chicfila in Columbus. Those last two days were soo much fun- the best part of our trip! We can't wait to do another spontaneous road trip like that again! July 11- We all went to PF Chang's to celebrate Daddy's birthday- yum!! July 15- Last session of laser hair removal. No more ‘stache for this girl! July 21 & 22- Two day Harry Potter movie marathon with Benjamin in preparation for the epic finale. July 23- Went to see the final Harry Potter movie with Adam & Benjamin. Best one of the series. Feels like the end of an era. Now I want to read the books. July 28- Mark this day down in history as the day I finally beat my mother at Scrabble- hah!"
