summer challenge -- week 7

My goal was to complete 50 scrapbooking pages from June 1st to August 31st. I've now finished 48. WOOOOOT!

Last week, I finished 8 pages (or 4 double layouts) thanks mostly to an all-day crop at Auntie Em's and to the monthly layout challenge at The Scrapbox. I'm submitting the two Canada Day layouts and will get my name put in a draw for a prize. In fact, the Canada Day layout for my daughter is made with products from a kit I won in a previous challenge. I love draws!

I hope you enjoy these!
