Girl Time

  Hey everybody!
I hope you all had a great 4th of July. Ours was pretty uneventful. We went to a neighbor's for a cook-out & some fireworks on the 3rd & took a road trip to shop for furniture on the 4th. Leah & I left town early Friday morning with her best friend & her mom to head north to Hershey, PA for the One Direction concert. We gave her tickets at the end of the school year as a reward for her straight A's this year. She was so excited & began counting down the days til the concert back in March!!
It was a memory I'll cherish forever! The girls were so enamored with the band & the whole experience had them in awe!

And another way we spend "girl time" together is reading. I LOVE to read & always have a book with me. I was hoping Leah would also find that love but it has been a struggle. There have been some series & books she has enjoyed though. The latest is The City of Ember series. We are currently reading The People of Sparks, the second book in the series.
Here is my latest layout, about her required summer reading for school. I played along with the current challenge at Scraptastic Club which is to use journalling strips.

The first few pictures are dark, I apologize! I loved this paper from Recollections & didn't want to cover a lot of it up. I added the white cardstock & a few embellies from Basic Grey (the badge & flag) & some chipboard pieces from Crate Paper. The alphas are AC Thickers.
What do you like to do for your "girl time"?

Thanks for stopping by tonight!
