WHOOP! WHOOP! Summer is almost here.

Excited for this long weekend when we celebrate and remember our warriors.
We plan on a fantastic weekend with friends.
So, bring on the sun.  Bring on the fun.
In the meantime,
here are a few layouts.


5 days of school left for Brianna.  I know she is ready to veg out and have a great time.
I am ready to have fun as well.

Yuckie May weather and early morning scrappy.

Just simply using up my stash.
My paper addiction is under control, really.
Yes, I scrap  even the not so perfect photos.
It is the memory that is written that is most important.
This is why I enjoy journaling on my pages.

Hoping for a warmer weekend.

PRIMARY TUESDAY here in Kentucky!

YES!  I am voting. 
 I am a firm believer that you should not voice your opinion unless you use your FUNDAMENTAL American right to vote.  This is includes the Primaries. 
 If you truly want change or to secure the person with whom you would like to have in an important role in our fundamental rights as Americans and making laws to ensure our rights, GO VOTE!
The rain will not keep me away.  I have an umbrella.
With this said, I created a few layouts for Studio Calico's
National Scrapbooking Day this year.
Each one was inspired by a challenge.


I am getting excited about Summer.  It just seems to take so long.
The weather has been under the average temperatures.
Patience, patience, patience.
I love soaking in the rays.
So, remember...exercise your right to vote!

National Scrapbooking Day, Derby, and Beech Bend!

This is always one of my favorite weekends.
Soaking in rays, watching the Kentucky Derby, and an evening in my studio!

Yep, this is happening! Under Construction and Coming Soon...

I created these fabulous invitations to send out to special people.
They are currently on their way for all of us to participate and bless a special family far away.
Yes, this is for my "Under Construction, Coming Soon," Grandson!

Life is Happening Faster these Days

What has been going on?  Lots!  Recently had the living room and kitchen repainted.  I am purging my rooster collection.  Still deciding to divide it up and give to my children and their families or simply sell it at a local consignment store.  The roosters are all over 14 years.  The only two I will keep will be the roosters my mother made when she was pregnant with me and they will be handed down, of course.  I went to a Crop for A Cure in February.  I really enjoy getting together and sharing creative time with other paper addicts.  So, today I finally took photos of the pages I completed in 8 hours.  Minus the giggles, eating and googling other work from great ladies. 
In addition, the following:
Lunch with one of my best friends and taking in the warm weather
Soaking in some natural Vitamin D
Reading a Book
Spring Break camping for the week
Creating a special Baby Shower Announcement
So, here without further ado...

This Summer is going to be fabulous. 
New babies being born, vacations, travel, and lots of outside fun.
Seriously, I cannot wait to soak in the rays!
