Busy time

Its a busy time here in the Johnson household. School is only a month away and have 3 girls to get school supplies for.
Getting ready to help my sister harvest her garden.
I am having surgery in August, only taking one day off of work.
My position will be ending at the end of August, so I am looking for a job.
and
I have decided to have an open house in September. I have been a Stampin Up demonstator for many years and never wanted to have any classes or sell Stampin Up products.
I thought I would share my love of stamping with my friends.

A gift for Kelli's Teacher.


Here is another card I made for Kelli's teacher.
On Thursday, my daughter Kelli finishes her summer school class and I have made several cards for her teacher. Here is the sock monkey that I made.

Our vacation


On Thursday, we drove to Six Flags and enjoyed the day there. The older girls got to see Jesse McCartney in concert.
On Friday, we drove 3 hours up north to Legend Lake. Mark's parents live on the lake. We went fishing, boating, tubing, and swimming. We had a great time. Kelli loved collecting as she calls it sea shells by the sea shore or the pond or lake....
