Olympic Excitement

Yikes! I have been an absent blogger this month. I have barely scrapped a thing at all. We have been too busy with a family wedding, a trip to the lake and time in the swimming pool. On the plus side, I will have tons of photos to scrap in the fall!

The London Games have just begun, my husband is watching the opening ceremonies. This just makes me reflect back two years. In 2010, our family was completely caught up in olympic fever! Canada was hosting and we felt part of it all. I took my kids one COLD morning and we got to see the torch run. This moment was amazing! I will never forget it and I am so glad we went. It was so cold that my camera had trouble taking the photos.

Later that day, we were able to hold a used torch from the run!

See the soot.

I also took my kids to The Royal Canadian Mint, where they had the olympic medals on display.

Of course, our family had an olympic celebration at our home! Each family member chose a food that they thought would fit the theme. My son chose onion rings.

Good luck to all the athletes! I wish everyone all the best during these games no matter what country you are cheering for!

Canada Day Blog Hop 2012

Welcome! Thanks for stopping by! I am soo happy to be part of a Canada Day blog hop today.

I think that with the right color paper scraps and some great stamps anything can look "Canadian".

All of these sentiment stamps are by Pink by Design

This layout is all done on my Gypsy. I saw a poster with this sentiment on it and immediately thought it would make a great layout. This would be easy to make with many different Cricut cartridges. I used Opposites Attract and Create a Critter.

We have some great Canadian sponsors and Canadian themed products lined up for prizes!

Prize #1 Stamps from Your Next Stamp
Prize #2 Choice of a rubber stamp from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps
Prize #3 $30 from

Prize #4 Choice of a digi stamp from

All you need to do is hop along with us leave all that participants a comment and pick up one "clue word" from each blog along the way. My clue word is "OUT". Once you have all the words then you will have a special question. Leave your answer in the comments on Heather's blog and, easy peasy, you are entered to win one of our great prizes!
