Just Checking In

I'm still around! I've just been busy with guests. My parents visited for the week so I didn't get any scrapping done.

However, I did make a Father's Day card for my Etsy shop and I'm working on a mini album. Once I get the album posted, I'll keep chugging on my Europe trip layouts.
