July - Our Month in Numbers

I'm a little late with my July Our Month in Numbers layout, but at least I've gotten it done before the end of August!

(Digital template from Simple Scrapper. Papers from Cheryl McCain's Tea Party Sampler.)
* 6 family members at Mama & Daddy's to celebrate the Fourth of July
* 2 errors by the Texas Rangers when they lost to the Minnesota Twins (although it seemed like more!)
* 1 chance for Melissa to meet Stacy Julian in person while she was in Dallas
* 3 Karen Kingsbury books from Mama & Daddy for Melissa's birthday
* 4 day trip to New Mexico to celebrate Melissa's 43rd birthday
* 12 roses from Robbie waiting at the Taos Country Inn Bed & Breakfast
* 20 minute delay on the chair lift at the Taos Ski Valley
* 9 minute 51 second video created by Melissa to explain process for 6 layouts
* 1 get-together for Melissa to crop with friends
* 15 layouts completed, 8 trading cards created, 26 blog posts published


  1. LOL - I've just published June's Numbers!
    Well done for getting it scrapped and posted though - I am still further behind with the pages!

  2. That's an impressive tally of blog posts and LOs, Melissa! And clearly some lovely occasions to celebrate ..

  3. Hi Melissa - I spotted your comment in Jemma's post today. If you'd like to join in with the full Month in Numbers tribe [whose posts I pin to the Pinterest board making it easy for everyone to visit everyone else to leave comments and get to know one another] then you're more than welcome. You'd just need to add in a quick link to my blog so your readers know how to join in too.

    But if you're happy blogging it in your own way - then that's fine. I'll scoot off and leave you be!

    Julie :-)

  4. Sounds like you had a great month. I really love these layouts and it makes me want to do something like this. I think I always make a note for myself when I see one and then I forget. One of these days, I'm going to take your inspiration and do a by the numbers layout! :)

  5. Sounds like you had a busy month, isn't it amazing how things add up?

  6. How cool that you got to meet Stacy Julian! I see you are using a Simple Scrapper's template, great! And somehow I missed your video, is it on YouTube?

  7. Great set of numbers! And very cool that you got to met Stacy Julian.


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
