Kites & More

All I can say is it's been a wonderful day. It has hit 80 degrees here in N-E Ohio!! Today I went to a kite festival with the girls and friends. We had a wonderful time. There were kites and a life size Candy Land Game. Gigi won the candyland game (whoo hoo).

Isn't this just the coolest kite ever?? It looks like a monster attacking a playground.

Here's CJ and all the kids.

Lexi with CJ's kite

Gigi with a kite.

After the kite festival because it was so warm..we didn't want to go home. We decided to head to Volant which is Amish country. It's so beautiful there and I just adore the Amish. I tried to respect their beliefs but I accidentally took a picture of a little Amish boy. I didn't notice it until I started editing the photos. He was in the shadows. (oops). Once we went inside this mill we saw the same little boy chugging on a Mt. Dew. It really amused me to see that. He was drinking Mt. Dew while staring at my girls like they were crazy.

Here's a couple pics of the girls while we were at Volant.

Here's the only thing I bought while we were there:

isn't it cute?? I'm going to use it to shake powdered sugar on whatever I make. I have scrapped a little this week.
This one I did using an inspired blueprint sketch. They have fabulous sketches...check them out. I might try to do another one tonight. :)

This one I just did for fun!! I just followed my mojo!

Thanks for sitting through all this!!
Have a fabulous weekend!!

Love and Hugs!!

Spring break is over...

We had such a blast this week. I'm so sad it's over but..Gigi had to go back to school. Lexi and I got to do some extra snuggling this morning before she had to do her own school work.

We played hard all week. Check out this flickr or check out my facebook page to see the pictures from the parks. I entered some of these pics in a photo contest on a flickr group. (wish me

I did a few LOs the past two days..(whoo hoo).

I did this one for the 52 sketches blog:

I did this one for the ScrapWhispers and Noel Mignon Challenge Blogs.

These last two I just did for fun. I got to use some new Bo Bunny Paper..ugh it's so pretty. I might have to order some more.

Thanks for stopping by...I hope you feel scrappy this week!!

hugs and love!!

busy busy

Gotta love holiday weekends.
The girls had a blast this weekend. They did everything from dying eggs to hunting them.

They are going to enjoy spring break..I'm hoping they won't get to bored.
On Easter evening, I scrapped with one of my friends and accomplished the following LOs.

I hope you all have a fabulous week. Hopefully you all will find time to get scrappy. Hopefully I'll find time to get scrappy. :)

Love and Hugs

It's back!!

It snowed yesterday and it returned my mojo! Whoo to the hoo!!
Here's what I did:

This is for the 52 sketches.

Here's an Easter card I made.

I made this for Chris'(aka Challenge on Ally Scraps and Scrap Whispers (I doubled dipped).

I have plans for another couple LOs. :) Hopefully I'll post again soon. :)

Just in case you thought I was joking about the snow. This is what we woke up to yesterday.

I hope you all have a fabulous holiday. We have lots of fun stuff to do this weekend. Eggs and just can't go wrong. :)

Love and Hugs!

I scrapped

Yep, last night I played with paper!! Whoo hoo!!

It's for the 52 sketches blog! It was a fun sketch to get my mojo flowing. Hopefully I will scrap some more today. It's raining out so, we won't be going outside to play.

Yesterday afternoon the girls and I were outside. I'm so glad they can burn off that energy by playing outside again.

I hope you all have a great Friday!! :)

Love and Hugs!!
