Summer Bucket List

A few weeks ago on Becky Higgins' blog, she linked up to the Solar Family and their Happy Family Movement website where they host an annual Summer Bucket List. They are encouraging other families around the world to compile their own Summer Bucket List. It's a simple 'things to do' list. 
In our family we started off with 13 'big' things, one a week until the end of August and added in lots of little things that we like to do in the summer and new things to try that are smaller, or quicker or cheaper :)
I have scrapped the bucket list, I bought paper from Studio Calico's Atlantic range that I have fallen for erm, hook, line and sinker. (Well, a nautical themed paper just needed that gag. Here in my head and silent blog you are all laughing your heads off. Yes, of course you are.)
I have bought some embellies from the same line and I have downloaded some cut files from Two Peas and had a happy hour cutting them out in various sizes and papers. I added in from my stash and now have a lovely kit for scrapping with all summer.
I may have mentioned a million times about my part-time working last winter, well sadly I can't afford to do that, so I started looking round at work for a new challenge so that a) I can really enjoy my work again and b) I can earn more. I am absolutely thrilled this week as I got the promotion I went for and will spend this summer getting ready to open a new store that I will be the boss of :D
So apart from the fact I am thrilled and want to tell the world ;) I know it will have an impact on how much time I will have for scrapping. So the plan is, do the bucket list, add it to general project life information and use the kit to scrap it all. 
That is the plan anyway lol.
And actually, we have ticked six items already. The first one we did was to go to the devon county show and i'll tell you about that next time.
Thanks for coming by and I appreciate the comments about google reader and bloglovin and blogger. I am going to spend some time trying to see if I can sort it out today so I can comment.
