scrap cards

I've actually created a lot of scrapbook pages lately....and that always brings scraps. I save a lot of them, but its tough to remember to use them. So, I try to save the big pieces and make as many cards as I can with the smaller scraps. They then go in my card box, all ready for birthdays, thank yous, etc. Sometimes I add sentiments but I usually leave them blank so I can personalize them later.
Above are some cards I made in an hour or so after scrapping. . .love putting those scraps to good use.

Disney layouts...part 1

I've been trying to actually get some scrapbooking of my own done in between work projects. I wanted to tackle all of the Disney photos from our last 5 (yep, I said 5) trips. Can't believe I haven't scrapped ANY of them! So, in the past couple of weeks I've gotten a good start on our Disney scrapbook. Here's a peek at some layouts.....

early Fourth celebration

Our 4th celebration weekend didn't go down exactly as planned, due to the crazy weather we've had. . but we had fun nonetheless. We drove up to Rangely for the day & hung out at camp. We ended up getting lucky, without rain until we were BBQ-ing, so we just moved it all inside. On the drive back, the rain turned into a full-fledged storm...I took a couple of lightning pictures from the saftey of the van :-)
We saw 2 young moose on the way home....this was a male with his antlers just starting.

A sign of the Fourth...Priscilla always adds the flags around camp.
Out for a canoe...we watched 2 loons for quite awhile....then headed back at the 1st rumble of thunder!
Hope you all had a happy, safe Fourth of July!

a quote for the day

its been a bit since I've posted....with the constant rain over the past couple of weeks, I've been bogged down with indoor work and chores. Was hoping for a sunny weekend to celebrate the 4th in Rangely, but it looks like that is falling by the wayside. Bummer.

Since the rain has a way of dragging people's day down, I thought I'd post a quote that I like to bring a little perspective to us all.....

"Live in each season as it passes . . .breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit." ~Henry David Thoreau

I'm going to put all of this rain & gloom into perspective & be thankful for the rain keeping my lawn, veggies, & flowers happy. We are lucky to be free from drought as so many must endure.
