~~Summer Vacation Journal~~

Hi Blogging Buddies!!
Today is the first official day of summer break and I have always wanted to journal our vacation but never got around to starting.
This year since my boys are now in 3rd and 5th grade we are making it a priority to get this done.

My son picked out the paper which is DCWV~ The Endless Summer Stack as well as picked out the letters~ from the Cuttin' Up Cartridge.
We cut the sun from the Create a Critter Cartridge and I stamped a super cute face from PKS.
We dated the journal for this year using some metal numbers I had in my stash.

My son really likes the way this turned out and has already written in it for yesterday and today.
Now I just hope he can keep it up :)
I am entering this into the following Challenges:
Celebrate the Occasion~Celebrate summer w/ Sun
Fantabulous Cricut~ Challenge Me Monday~Summer Sun
Getting Cricky~Face It
