It's August ♥ and a new page for American Crafts

Can you believe that it is already August the 1st?

Summer is flying by so quickly and in just a few short weeks the kids will be back in school.

There were a few things that the kids wanted to do this summer and one of them was the Summer reading program at our local library. The girls (Hailey and Sarah) set out to read as many books as they could so we spent lots of time going back and forth at the library as well as lots of lazy days reading.

Their time and efforts paid off because both girls were in the top 30 out of about 200 kids grades K-8. Hailey came in 9th place and 2nd place for the 4th graders. Sarah ended up reading about 3700 pages while Hailey read almost 9,000. Pretty impressive if you ask me.

I wanted to document this fun part of their summer, their adventures in reading, so I created this layout featuring my oldest daughter engrossed in one of her books:

I used the Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm collection, some gold alphas from the 5th and Frolic line, butterflies and "hello" cut on my Silhouette Cameo. 

Don't forget to leave a comment in the post below for a chance at my scrappy giveaway.

Beautiful layout!! I'm so thankful for libraries. I have a few readers in my house too. I don't think I could afford to buy all the books they read!
