July Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Blog hop!

Hello!  It's the first Saturday in July which means I am here with the Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from our July Guest Designer Lisa!  If at any time you get lost or if you would like to start at the beginning you can go to Jenny's Wee Memories blog here.

This two week challenge is sponsored by There She Goes Stamps!  I had fun looking through there cute stamps!  Our challenge is perfect for the season, it's Summertime!

I am a true lover of summer.  I love the heat, the sun, spending time outdoors, the yummy yummy summer food!  When I was thinking about what I should make I couldn't help but want to play with this stamp set  Life of the Party by Hero Arts.  I am sad to admit that I've had it for a bit but hadn't reallyplayed with it yet!  I love cotton candy and so love this stamp!  Cotton candy reminds me of various summer fun, mostly an amusement park!  It's funny though how being a parent changes you, now when I see it sure I want it but I do not want my kids eating it!

I started with Hawaiian shores cardtock by PTI and stamped the Life of the Party Dots cling background stamp with frost white ink by Colorbox.  I stamped the tickets, the candies and the cute cotton candy on cardstock.  I decided to put the cotton candy on a stick (coffee stir stick) since I love making treats on sticks!  How could I resist?  I tied some twine by the Twinery.  I mimicked the tickets by punching the corners with a circle punch! 

I am also entering this card into the new Hero Arts contest which is Summertime (also!) and party!  So fun how that worked out!

Yesterday was Canada Day here!  We had so much fun as a family.  We went to the Mint (where all the coin in Canada is made) and they had free tours, bouncers for the kids and other fun stuff.  I got some cute pictures:




Looking at my kids and there tans can you tell we have been enjoying summer?  On Thursday we spent a very hot day in a friends pool!  Later on we went to the fireworks!  Ariel and Carter loved them!  I really enjoyed listening to Carter tell us all about them, doing hand gestures and everything! 

I hope that you will join us for this challenge!  The next stop along the hop is Giovanna!  Hope you have a great weekend, and to all my American friends have a happy 4th!!!!

I like how you used the tickets.. because I get these and they end up in the bottom of my stash and I never know what to do with them.
