End of Summer

Can you believe summer is almost over. 
The team here at lasting memories would love to see how you wind down before the kids head back to school and the cooler weather moves in.  Do you take a family vacation, spend time poolside or at the lake?

For me summer is officially over when I don't have to have girl scout meetings in the backyard.  We had our last meeting and summer hike on Thursday and will be heading back to the school gym in  September.

Here's a peak at our July meeting with Lane Rural Fire and Rescue
The girls learned a lot about fire safety and had a blast climbing in and out of the engine
and of course we took a lot of photos to document the event

Left side of layout
Instead of a title I just have the LRFR badge and lots of journaling

This is a decal from the plastic firefighter hats that the girls all recieved. 
Who knew that the older girls would go crazy for them.

Right side
I'm glad I left a space to add more journaling instead of one more photo because
you wouldn't know it was the middle of the summer with all of us bundled up against the lovely late afternoon mist. It definately made it bareable around the fire pit.  Can't image teaching girls to light fires in 90 plus weather that we had a few days earlier

close up of my latest CM border punch. 
I backed it with white paper that I fussy cut to give it another layer

Now it's your turn to share your end of summer fun with us at lasting memories for a chance to win our monthly prize and if you'd like to join us as a guest designer don't forget to add GDT after yor name.
