we've moved!

i know its sudden and all, LOL...but i just fell in love with this place when i saw it and i couldn't pass it up! hahahaha!

gorgeous huh? my own little private castle!

now here's the shocking part:

i have to bring these guys along...but there is LOTS of room (or should i say ROOMS) for them to run thru)

and when i get tired, i can sit out on my ENORMOUS porch. ahhh...the life of being oh so wealthy!

i am booking now for the fall. anyone wanna come visit?

growing up too fast

(click to enlarge)

here is another challenge. had to use cherry red and teal on a layout and use a quote as well. obviously i haven't figured out my journaling yet...but i am sure it will come to me soon.

hard to believe abby was only like 8 months old in those pics. where has the time gone? there are moments i want to pull my hair out and other ones that bring me to my knees. i guess thats motherhood.

life in august

i have managed to sneak in some scrappy time since we've had a little rain. i posted a challenge on another forum and i wanted to complete mine, so here it is. i do usually include titles and journaling, but you don't always have to. sometimes the image speaks volumes. at least thats what i feel when i look at this picture of my little one. my challenge was to create a 12x12 layout with cardstock, no patterned paper (but cardstock could be embellished) and it must have a 2"x2" photo. here's my take:

we have been knee deep into summer and really enjoying the weather. wouldn't mind it warmer, but i am not complaining. my garden has produced 4 zucchini so far. i am very happy! the corn, carrots, watermelon, parsley and squash are all still growing. but they look promising as well. the mystery plant by my compost pile still seems to be a mystery, but i am thinking it is pumpkin. guess we'll find out soon enough!

looking forward to another fun filled week!
