Now on with the hop 

For my summer projects, I made some layouts of some lazy days of Summer activities that are typical for our family.  My husband's family has a family reunion almost every year and what better for lazy days of summer than three layouts from one of the those summer family reunions. The three are simple and quick layouts.  The first two are using bo bunny paper in the same color scheme as the family paper. 

A family reunion wouldn't be complete without adorable and fun pictures of the youngest generation entertaining the others by playing and romping in the pool with squeals of delight.   I thought this paper was absolutely perfect for this layout of our great nieces playing in the pool.
For the last several summers, I always said I was going to get a small pool,couple adironack chairs then grab my mp3 player and relax by sitting in my chair with my feet in the pool with a strawberry margarita enjoying the lazy days of summer, but since I was working full time I usually didnt have time to do this,  But this summer I do have more time as I am only working part time and I purchased a pool and adironack chairs.  I have also decorated my yard in a beach theme.  So for the next few weeks of summer, I intend to spend several days relaxing by the pool in my chair. I made this cute little layout with Silhouette Cameo, which I intend to put pictures of my little summer yard paradise.  The flamingo I purchased from the Silhoutte store.  The umbrella, Starfish, Sea shell, beach sign and umbrella are from Miss Kate's Cuttables

Thank for stopping by.  Since I accidentally made 2 of these flamingo layouts, because I misplaced the first layout, I am offering the second extra flamingo layout as blog candy.  All you have to do is be a follower and leave a comment telling me what your favorite lazy day of summer activity is.

If you get lost along the way here is the entire line-up of today's hop for you to get back on track and not miss a single project. And don't forget to leave everyone a little blog lovin' and become a follower for your chance to win some blog candy.
