It's June! And that is the Truth! :)

Seriously, how is it possible that June is here already?!
But so happy that summer has officially started for us.
School is out for almost three months and we have planned a lot of fun, but relaxing things to do.
Lots of play dates with friends :)

I have been seeing a few people around the internet share a Summer Manifesto thought I would share a few of the things I want to accomplish.
So here is my top twelve list for Summer 2012 with a layout to start us off that I made last summer :)
1.) Go swimming at the pool.
2.) Have a backyard BBQ with all of our neighbors.
3.) Take an overnight road trip with my friend Kelly and all of the kids :)
4.) Go for family bike rides at least once a week
5.) Have a "field trip" day every week where we visit some place fun around town.
6.) Play with the kids (what they want to play) at least once a day
7.) Have over night slumber parties with cousins and friends
8.) Go to the drive in movie at least once (something I loved to do as a kid!)
9.) Use our Six Flags season pass at least once a week!
10.) Take a road trip to visit our new cousin/nephew just born three days ago :)
11.) Go to at least one all day crop per month.
12.) Relax, relax, relax!

Also hoping to get lots of time this summer to create layouts and projects.
And since it is June, I can finally share the new kit available over at Scrapbooking From the Inside Out.
It is the Truth kit. This kit has lots of great product in here from My Mind's Eye, Authentique, Lily Bee, Pink Paislee, Teresa Collins and more! I love the blue and yellow color scheme.

I will not officially be designing until the July kit, but am definitely going to be working on some of the challenges for June. And the Pinterest inspiration board is up as well here, which is definitely worth checking out :)
Hope you have a great Monday!
