Here's what I have been up to!!

First off, this is a layout of my daughter and her really good friend. They are feeding the chickens at her friend's house. We are very sad that our good friend and family will be moving away soon! We will really miss them!

This next one was taken in Chicago, we went there to celebrate Sarah's 8th birthday and had lunch at their cafe...it was a fantastic day!! Sarah's doll even got her ears pierced!
Here we are apple picking with our favorite Aunt Nettie...the kids love when she visits us...I do too!

This is my latest entry over at Sketch Inspiration. They have weekly sketches I have been participating in...with great prizes...see my next layout!!!!

This is also from a Sketch Inspiration sketch...I won 1st prize for this layout and get a really great prize from Tidbitz in Time!!

I'm not the most eloquent writer, and I get right to the point. So here it is.

There are times in life that are just so surreal you wonder if you are dreaming. This is one of those times! Soon I am off to meet 15 of my closest friends...for the first time! Thanks to MSW and Lucy Chesna I have made friends all over the world and we will come together in Houston TOMORROW for the first annual MSW Crop! This is a dream come true in more than one way!! I can't even express how this weekend makes me feel! Lori, the Scrapinator says it much better than I do (check out her blog!).

Thanks is all I know how to say, but it is so much more than that!!
