Kristin just announced that this will be the 5th and final year that she will be hosting this amazing blog event. Here's what she said:
"So, if it Seems By Now that I'm ending our Summer adventure after five incredible years together, unfortunately, you're right. I know that there will never be an easy time to end it - and honestly my biggest fear is in disappointing you - but I've decided to dedicate the rest of my Summers to spending time with our daughter, who was 4 when I began The SOC and (I can hardly believe it!) will be 10 in a of couple months. I know that I only have a few years left while she still likes me more than her friends, and I want to take advantage of every little minute I can with her. I do hope you understand."
I am sad, but I totally understand that FAMILY comes first. In my own family, I cannot believe that my daughters have grown so quickly over the years! Katie is 21 years old and Anne is 12 years old already. Where does the time go? Time is precious and I know that we need to spend as much of it with our families as we can!
If you want to learn more about Kristin and her mixed media art, please check out her blog here.
I also want to take this time to thank my friend Dawn. You can check out her blog here. In June of 2013, she encouraged me to join the Summer of Color. When I did, I was in awe of the talent I found, but more importantly, I really loved how wonderfully supportive the entire SOC community was and still is!
In conclusion - in honor of Kristin and the Summer of Color, I would like to post all of the six scrapbook layouts that I made this year! I believe that she and all the the SOC artists have inspired me to do some of my best work!
