But we were lucky. Every Canada day weekend my dad and some of the other dad's would collect money from everyone on the block and buy a TON of fireworks. All the moms would make snacks and bring drinks. After the fireworks we would get sparklers and run around in the street!
Late in the summer when I started to get dark earlier, we would have huge games of hide and go seek in the dark. We had teams... usually girls vs boys! In the winter our backyard would flood every year.... which made the best natural ice rink. All the kids would come skating at our house. On snow days all the moms would come over and bring tons of food... all the kids would make snow forts and play in the snow.
Ahh... good times :) .... maybe I should get back on topic to my layout :)
These are some of the neighborhood kids. Me in the front and my brother Sean at the end. Mostly Doodlebug products used here with some KI letter rubons. I really love how this turned out since its very different than my usual style.... but it suits the theme of the paper and picture.
With the lack of sunlight the past couple weeks its been hard to get good pictures of my layouts. So its the best I could get!
In other scrappy news.... the kit that I posed about a couple days ago from Catch the Moments Kits is on sale this week! All the kits that are normally $18 are now $14! So head on over and check it out :)
Have a great day!
