Five for Friday

Well, it's been another busy week in the Penner household.
In addition to swimming lessons every afternoon at the beach....

1. On Sunday, we went for a walk around the lake.
I got some great photos -- look for them on a layout soon -- as soon as I get my new Get
Lost stamp set that I ordered from PTI earlier this week. ;)

2. A church in Winkler hosted a drive-in movie night on Wednesday.
We saw Rio 2. They had some fun activities set up before the movie started,
including a huge Operation game -- which Austin broke a record at by removing 10 parts.

3. Our church hosted a pool party in Winkler last night.
We had lots of fun! We raced down the fast slides and I took a bunch of photos
of the kids jumping off the diving boards.

4. I'm super excited about the two new lines that Chickaniddy Crafts is releasing:

Aren't they fabulous?
And best of all, Heidi is doing two giveaways on the Chickaniddy Crafts Blog
for both of them: Scumptious (click!) & Jolly Good (click!)

5. And lastly, I have a card to share that I made for Tag You're It Challenge #2
where we're being inspired by this gorgeous tag by Laura Bassen:

I was inspired by the vellum leaves over the patterned background
to make a journaling card tag for my summer album.

I used Crate Paper The Pier patterned paper for my background,
which I die cut using PTI's Journaling Card 1 die and then punched a hole.
I die cut my vellum leaves using my Turning a New Leaf dies.
I die cut my Wet Paint Cuts hello die cut three times from some coordinating Crate Paper
patterned paper and stacked them together.
I stamped the "summer" from PTI's Monthly Moments: June stamp set.

Visit Tag You're It to see the rest of the DT's takes 
on the challenge and to play along, if you'd like.
You have until Wednesday, July 30th to link up your project.

Thanks for looking!
