Random posting....

Things are the same ol busy around here so I thought I'd just drop in and share a little and show some projects!
We are STILL in baseball mode around here... Mitchell's team is going to playoffs and so there is practice every.single.night. of the week except Wednesday... so we are still living by the almightly baseball Gods! lol
We have been basically just hanging around and enjoying the lazy summer days... after of course we get up early to go to Morgans early workouts... which I have to admit he's only been making maybe twice a week... we must get better at that!! ha!
Wednesday nights have been our highlights.... we usually spend the "family nights" at Jens house with a potluck dinner, the kids in the pool till dark and the adults playing games and such... a FUN night for sure for all!!

Hey Corey! Thanks for the sweet comments!
To make the lines in the cardstock I used my 12" trimmer and flipped the Core'dinations paper over and used a stylus (a bone folder would work too) and pressed it into the groove on the trimmer, then I flipped my cardstock back over (face up now) and lightly sanded the raised lines to reveal the color core, then wa-la! thanks!
