Summer Sipper (Simple Stories I Heart Summer)


I finally had a chance to break into the new Simple Stories I Heart Summer collection I ordered a number of weeks ago. I love this collection just as much as I loved Summer Fresh last year.

The story behind this layout goes something like this...I came across a blog post about staving off summer boredom by having summer camp at home. This particular post talked about having a different theme for each day, like Make It Monday (crafting, baking, etc.), Take a Trip Tuesday (field trip of some sort), Wet Wednesday...Well, you get the idea. Although we haven't implemented full days of "camp", we have tried some of the themes and ideas. This one, drinking from an orange (a "try it" activity), made it onto the epic fail list. No matter how much we rolled and squeezed that sucker, we couldn't eke any juice from it. Alexa even inserted the straw in a couple of different places. Even though it didn't work, it sure was good for laughs. Thankfully our attempt at making homemade lemonade (do you sense a citrus fruit theme here?) worked out MUCH better!
Pin It!
