Cross Canada Blog Hop: Summer Fun

Welcome to the Cross Canada Blog Hop!  This month we are featuring summer fun- that is easy to do when we have had such a great summer in my part of Canada.

For my summer fun project I decided to create a layout showing some of the fun we have been having. It is our first summer in our new home and we are lucky to live across the street from Lake Simcoe and have our very own neighborhood beach! It is sandy and shallow- the perfect beach and just steps from our door. Needless to say we spend a lot of time there.

awesome summer layout

To create my layout I used the Zoe paper, Zoe complements and Zoe accessories. I also added some images from the new Cricut Artistry cartridge (love it!)  If you have not ordered some of this paper yet then you are missing out- I do think it is the belle of the ball when it comes to our new Annual book- super versatile and so pretty!   You can place an order on my SHOP

Eat Your Greens: Zoe Layout

I know there is this myth that children do not like their veggies… apparently in some households the kids will go to any lengths not to eat things like broccoli, asparagus, brussel sprouts and other yummy things. Although I am far from a perfect parent I have managed to do one thing well- convince my kids that veggies are awesome yummy!

Now how did I do this? Really, I have no idea, but they both LOVE their veggies and will often ask for their fav- broccoli. In fact, this one time, when asked what treat they would like both my kids offered up broccoli (and really I expected chips or chocolate or something ‘treat-ish’). This time was one of those ‘treats’ and my daughter also told me she wanted to eat it with chopsticks- this left me confused for a few reasons. 1. How does she know what chopsticks are? I am sure that answer lies in one of her cartoons. 2. Do we have chopsticks? 3. How does she expect to actually eat with them?

Well, after some time we figured out that chopsticks in our house are the salad tongs and she actually did really well on the eating part…. after all, she ate her greens!
