Lovin' the Summer Heat!

With August came the sun and heat (finally) and a very busy month.  We have been camping with family, took an amazing houseboat trip, continued on our bathroom renovations, had the kids each attend a week of hockey school and power skating and prepared to return to school and work.  With all that has been going on my craft table has been sadly neglected :-(  We are slowly getting back into routines at home again and I can hear the call of my stamps, patterned paper and copics!  I am attending a crop on September 23-25 with some great friends and am feeling the itch to get back to crafting.
The one crafty thing I did recently was my daughter's birthday cake.  I love decorating cakes and was excited when she picked out a monkey cake she liked.  Here is the cake I came up with:

As much as I enjoyed doing the cake, my daughter's excitement of how it turned out was what made it the best.  She told me it was "Awsome!" and that I am the best Mom ever - if that doesn't make it worthwhile I don't know what does.
We are just putting some final touches in our bathroom and I hope to post before and after pictures later this week.
Hope everyone enjoyed their summer and was able to get in a bit more card making/scrapbooking than I did.  I am off to clear the clutter off my craft table now and get down to some projects.
