Seeing this on lots of scrapper blogs, so I thought I would give it shot.......

Outside my window......the sun still brightly shining and it is HOT !!

I am thinking....I think I want a Klondike 100 calorie ice cream sandwich :)

I am thankful for....A/C

From the kitchen....we had the yummiest salmon for dinner !!!!

I am wearing.....my capri jammie bottoms and a big comfy t-shirt

I am creating.....this blog post

I am going......to watch tv in a little bit

I am reading...the 2nd book of the twilight series !!!!!

I am hoping.....my son didn't eat the last Klondike ice cream sandwich !!!

I am hearing.....the Cosby show on in the background

A few of my favorite things right now....the A/C humming along nicely, sleeping in, Klondike 100 calorie ice cream sandwiches and watermelon !!

A few plans for the rest of the week.....John's soccer camp, getting ready to go out of town Saturday, playdates for the kids.......

Okay, blog friends...have at it :)

mini book love.....

I made this darling house chipboard book for my SIL for her b-day. They have an amazing backyard and it is her pride and joy. One day when the kids were swimming, I took some pics to use for the book. It has 5 total pages, front and back.

This one on the cover is a rose from the rose bush that was their Mom's favorite. Very special to John, Rosalyn and Carolyn. Sweet little garden things around the yard.

The view from the patio. Lots of beautiful trees too.....

The pool and the design on the top of benches throughout the yard.

Their sweet doggie..Chloe. Love her sweet feet :)

Another pretty flower.

The back :)

Summer Scrapping......

I had this fun, chunky chipboard book begging to be made into something. It is a cute 3" x3" book. So I used some of spring break pics from the beach.

Feels so good to spend some time in my scraproom...scrapping for me :)

think it'll work ???

Just one of my crazy pet peeves.......there is a towel ring on either side of the mirror and the kids never hang up their hand towels. They leave them on the counter and it drives me nuts. So I am trying this. Claire thought it was hysterical. I am sure when my husband sees it he will know for sure I have gone off the deep end....haha !!!!!
