Happy almost Labor Day

I hope that everyone is having a fun and happy Labor Day. My Labor Day is hot, it's in the 90's here in sunny California. I know that I shouldn't complain because we do have some of the best weather around but SCE (our electric company) has been powering down our air conditioner. We signed up for an energy saving program, we get a discount and in return when peak usage is up, they can power down our air conditioner. My mom who works for SCE says people almost never get powered down. Well, we've been powered down 3 days in a row, from like 3:00pm - 9:00pm. My poor baby is a sweat ball. So we have fans going, so we're still using electricity but I guess not as much.

Anyhow, I have a 4th of July layout for you all. I know I make a lot of cards but I actually do a fair amount of scrapbooking too!

I also have two cards for Beate's weekend challenge. I don't love either one so I think I'm going to go back to the drawing board but here they are.

I cannot remember where this paper came from, but the stamp is Changito from Stampendous and the ribbon is WER Memory Keepers.

I used Max and pumpkins stamp from Stampendous, Martha Stewart ribbon and some of the leaves and flowers that I'm giving away in my blog candy. I think it looks a little busy so back to the drawing board. Pin It Now!

Beate challenge has sparked a lot of interest. Almost all the blogs I have gone to today have the challenge card posted. Very pretty!
I haven't gotten into scrapbooking. I thought I would try it for two people in my family but so far haven't taken the time.
