Kids out of school~BBTB Challenge ~ Freebie Wednesday

My two oldest are officially out for summer break and boy are they enjoying the good life ;) Last Thursday, I took a quick photo of them in the wind on their last day...here they are...all smiles ;)




In direct contradiction to this...I asked my 3-year-old how he felt about having the 2 older ones home 24/7...here's his reaction...(LOL)


What can I say...the boy likes his alone time with Mommy! But he is coping :)

So,with this being the first week with the kids out of school...my life has really gotten a bit crazy trying to get everyone into various activities and us onto a schedule that we can manage this summer...what can I say other than life with kids keeps things hopping ;)

So, I am just now finally able to get my BBTB challenge posted this week. This week Regina challenged us to use the bookmark cut from the animal kingdom cartridge. I decided to pair this up with some of October Afternoon's fun monster line papers and embellishments and create a bookmark for my daughter.



Since summers is in full swing for us here in Colorado, I thought a couple of butterfly cuts would be appropriate for this weeks freebie cut since they remind me (for some reason) of lazy summer days...here's a preview of what you can download: (CLICK here to download this file)


Remember if you like my cuts...want to see more of them...and if you download these, leave me a comment here on my blog :)

Have a great wednesday everyone!

Jen, your kiddos are so cute! I took one of my kiddos embracing each other too on the day of my son's graduation last week.

I seriously have to start using my Cricut more often and get SCAL so I can start using your files. Love the bookmark. Been wanting to make one for my son since he loves to read! Thanks for the inspiration and freebie! Do you happen to have a download for DS users?

Love this.,
I love the base and then the other one can be used to "fold out" and have a 3-D look.
Thank you for sharing.

I stopped back to admire your beautiful scrapbook pages in slide show form once again. They are so beautiful. I figure if I come back enough times, my brain might remember to create something like yours. Thanks much!
