(Took the photo from the store's website ;) ) It was my first time teaching and I was really nervous at first. The ladies that came to the class put me right at ease and we had alot of fun. Aside from rolling the petals on the green flower lol. We started late and finished late, but everyone was a good sport and we managed to get it all done :) . Yesterday was a good day.

This one I did finish today and I love how it turned out. I sewed on it and hand stitched the swirls. I can't wait to show it to Kacey :)
This one cracks me up. My kids like to run through the ditch in front of our house and eventually "slide" in it. Look at the wave of water they created! LOL
I almost titled this one "Perfect 10". Something about her coming out of the water like this reminded me of Bo Derek in "10" . It just seemed weird to put that on a layout about my daughter, but I think it every time I see this page.
Sarah, how I love that you like to have your picture taken. I have lots of layouts of Sarah. If my other kids ever complain, I will simply remind them of when they ran from me, covered their faces or otherwise avoided my camera's lens. This time we were baking Banana Muffins. They were delicious.
No school year would be complete without a Back To School Layout. Imagine my surprise at finishing it mere days from taking the photos! lol.
That's all from me today. Tomorrow we are going to Grandpa's Birthday Party. He is 81 Years old!! I hope I get some awesome photos of everyone. Have a fun and safe Labor day everyone. Hugs to my peeps out there :)

Sadly I cannot find the link to the blogger that created this :
If anyone has seen this online or knows who created it, could you leave me a link in the comments section. I feel terrible for not knowing. Is anyone inspired to create something today? I sure hope so! If you do create something today, leave me a link! I wanna see what you do :)
Have a fantastic day!!

This is just a simple, cheap 8x10 photo frame that I adhered paper to the glass and decorated with accordian folded flowers and buttons. I then added some Dew Drops and Rhinestone Bling.
A closer view of the "Flowers"
This is a shadowbox I bought at the dollar store (I bought 2)
This is how I redecorated it.

I also love, love, love the art by Bob Canada. He always throws something I don't expect into his artwork. His characters are wonderful.
If you are in the mood to check out some art blogs, here are a few more of my favorites:
Cally Jane Studio
Happy Doodle Land
She Sure Is Sketchy
The Ol' Sketchbook
I hope you find something you like. Thanks for coming by today :)

This next one, I cut chipboard to 3"x5" (the M a little wider), and taped them together accordian style. I embellished it with paper, ribbon, flowers, stickles, brads and ink. I pop dotted each letter to give them a little dimension. I love how it turned out.
Thanks for stopping by! Hugs to my peeps :)

Once Upon a Time.....
.......Emily and Chris were as close as two siblings could be. Wherever Chris went, so went Emily. He'll say he hated it, but it simply didn't come across that way, not to me. It was as if he expected her to go with him. When I look at these photos of Chris and Emily together in 2004, all I see there is love, and devotion. The kind a little sister carries for her older brother.
A mere 6 years leaves this relationship quite a bit different, but not entirely changed. As they get older their interests change. Emily started hanging out with her girlfriends and Chris found out that girls aren't icky lol. Emily may not be tagging along after her brother much anymore, but I know, they will always be there for each other. I hope that one day they both realize how special a relationship they have. Mom- 2010
You're only 9 once, enjoy it!
Summer Fun: Ryan and Sarah playing tag with the neighborhood children.
So Beautiful:I snapped this photo of my mom whil waiting for Chris's Graduation ceremony to start. I love how this photo turned out. My mom, the first person to love me, one of the best people on the planet! I got so lucky to be her daughter. I can't imagine a better role model.

I have also started watching Glee, LOVE IT!! The preggies dancin on the last episode was hilarious. I just can't get enough Glee. I watched 5 episodes on Hulu the other day, each one as good as the last. Now I want to see the rest of the ones I have missed.
Lastly, my oldest son graduates from High School this Sunday!! I cannot wait to watch him walk across the stage to get his diploma. I am really looking forward to it. Summer can officially start after that :) I hope everyone out there in blog land is happy and well!! Loves to my peeps :)

This one is my youngest son Ryan, I snapped some pics of him while he was innocently watching cartoons after school. I love this shot of him. I'd also like to send a shout out to my Cricut for being so awesome. I love that machine! I used the Indie Art cart. for the hearts and the word heartbreaker.
Thanks for looking and I hope you have a fantastic weekend!
