I just wanted to take a moment before I called it a night and wish my Daddy in Heaven a Happy Birthday! He would've been 65 today. I know if he were still with us we would've celebrated with dinner under the tent and lots of cake. I miss him terribly but I know I will see him again one day. Happy Birthday Daddy! I love you!
I've been working on some goodies this week. I did 3 altered clipboards, a picture frame, 4 cards and a daddy mini album. I hope the recipients will enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed making them. These will be going to my sister's nursing instructors:

This one will be going to my other sister's friend who found out her Dad has Alzheimers Disease. My sister has such a big heart and wanted to give it to her to preserver her memories of her Dad since it will be hard to communicate with him as the disease worsens. I really hope it will bring her comfort and peace.

On another note...It was Christmas in July at my house Tuesday night. I participated in a Christmas in July swap at My SS was Tammy, aka. ScrappinNana. And boy was she good to me! I can't wait to start scrappin' with my goodies. Here's a pic of what I got:

Now I'm off to clean up my scrap space.

Wow, what a Monday I've had. I feel like I have been running around like a chicken with my head cut off. I managed to finish the last lay-out to give to my sister for her birthday. Now all three sister's each have a lay-out, except Melinda, she won't get hers til the 26th;) Here is Cindy's:

Now I'm off to finish 3 clipboards and a picture frame and four cards for my sister and her friends to give their nursing instructors for end of the year gifts! Happy Monday all~

I woke up to a nice surprise this morning! My lay-out Sherry Dear was voted for Lay-out of the Day at 3scrappy you can see the thread here It always makes me feel good to know that others enjoy my lay-outs! I made this one for my sister Sherry for her birthday on Saturday. It was the first time I have ever done a circle lay-out and the first time I've every used angel wings. I really hope she likes it!

Have a great Friday all! Come visit me again soon! :)

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July! I know I sure did! I got to be lazy and hang around the house most of the day, then I was ready for some of Bryan's mouth watering BBQ and fireworks with the family! We had a great night and the kids had so much fun with the fireworks. Here are a few pics of our night:

Carley had her dance show with The Dance Place called A Time to Dance! It was a great show with 26 numbers. Carley was in 5 of those! She did such a great job! We all really had a great time watching our little dancer perform. Here are some pics from her performance:

I have really been busy! Bryan and I moved everything out of the store an into our scrap/poker room! I have worked all week getting everything cleaned and organized and I must say, I am pleased with how my new space has turned out. We moved the bar and put it up. We almost thought about selling it but I just couldn't part with it and now I am glad I didn't. I love working at the bar and it will really come in handy for all of our crops. I have all of the store product organized and put up until I can get it all sold. I won't be needing any scrap stuff anytime soon! I strung a clothesline to hang my most recent scrap pages on! It turned out really cute! I love being able to display my pages as I work on them! Here are some pics:

Let me know what you think!
I'll be back a little later to post pics from Carley's dance show! Have a safe and happy 4th of July!
