Welcome SUMMER!

Hello friends! For those who are wondering - yes, I'm still here at home... We are enjoying our first day of summer together. The weather is perfect and having kids home without a thought of homework is great! They deserve a break after a year of hard work.

If you know me, you probably know how much I love pictures! And for that reason I love Project Life jest as much:)) How else would you remember the happiness on their faces on the last day of school?... Yeah, I might be just one mom in the neighborhood with a camera on their last day, but I want to remember these moments!

This is the moment when the summer has officially begun! Coming home from school on the very last day - can anything be happier than that? Oh! How I remember those days being a student myself. Feel like I need to make a page about it:))
These are the "last day of school" smiles!))

My kids like to keep journals. Both of their journals were getting too full and I thought starting new ones right in the beginning of a summer would be a perfect idea. But I wanted their summer journals be more like Smash book type. I told them, that they can choose some photos to add to their journals whenever they want - I wanted too see the summer from their own perspective. It will give them something to do and it will be a memory they will treasure forever:)

We are blessed to live next door with my sister and her family. (School pictures have four kids - two of them are mine and two are my sister's). So, the idea of Smash books was very exiting for my kids, they shared with their cousins and decided to do four of these books. The more people are involved the funner it is. (Just like we did our ABC books... Remember?)

And here are some images of finished Summer Smash Books:

I've cut all the titles for these books with Silhouette. I added a few pockets inside for memorabilia but kept inner pages pretty plain, letting them do what ever they desire... Here are just a few pages from one of the books:

And here all four of them (three facing front cover and yellow one facing back):

Backs of Smash books (front of the yellow one):

Thank you for stopping by! And I wish everyone the greatest Summer ever!

Mine looks great already - my 14year old just delivered a glass of homemade Frappe to me! Got to go sit outside to enjoy it!

See you later!

  1. Great books for the girls! I'm sure they will enjoy them very much.
    Can I have that frappe delivered to me as well? :)

  2. Sure! You should come over some time during summer (when I have my little one) I have a full house of baby sitters and we can relax with frappe :))

  3. Anya VERY nice pictures of the "start" of the summer and last day of school! Those are great memories to have... but getting to a more important subject now, looks like I’ll be the baby sitter when you and Lora are going to have your frappe :-) and your little one... PUT SOME PICTURES UP!!!! You are blessed with such a good and beautiful baby!!! Love him so much already!!! Now share him with the rest of us :-)

  4. Welcome Summer! It has been great so far and hope it stays this way! Nice pictures, kids diserve a good break from all the studying and finishing one more year with honors. So PROUND OF THEM!
    Thank you ANYA so MUCH for making the Smash books, kids are really into it, good way to create some memories.

  5. I do agree with Ira of course, our little nephew is so adorable, and I love him so much! Such a great stress releiver, holding him and learning from him to trust the Lord the way he trust his mom, and not to worry about everything.
    And yes it's time to put some pictures of him, 6 days of brake should be good enough! :)
