It's a Mystery

OHHH my goodness do you all think that I have been missing in action?  Well I am not totally missing just time flying quickly by.  It seems like just a few days ago the kids were just getting out of school and then I blinked and WOW I realized that it's time to go back to school, finish up my yard work, home improvements, harvest my many tomatoes in the garden (well almost time for that) and all the other many things I have to do on my daily "To Do" list.

My latest hobby that I have picked up is quilting so I wanted to share my latest project with you.  Yikes, I never in a million years thought I would find myself quilting.  However, I have found it to be very enjoyable, relaxing and it allows me to have a creative outlet other than scrapbooking.  I love to scrapbook very much, but due to everything that has been going on in our lives this has been a very therapeutic thing for me.  I have been going to a quilt club in my area that has been organized by my dear friend Juli.  I love meeting up with my quilt club ladies each month. 

Over the last few months Juli planned a "Mystery Quilt" for us.  Each month she gave us an assignment.  The first month was to buy the fabric, the following month we did the cutting and then the next two months she gave us sewing instructions.  We had no idea what the quilt would look like when we finished.  However I was not worried one minute because Juli does amazing work and I knew it would be well worth it in the end.  Each of us in the club chose different fabric so our quilts are all different.  Anyway, I was very happy with the way my quilt turned out.  I love pink and brown if you have never noticed so of course when I went to the fabric store all the pink and brown fabric jumped out at me and into my arms.

Thanks so much for taking a minute to share my excitement with me.  Have a wonderful day.

Zippidee Workshop

Climb aboard for a fun workshop this month using our Zippidee kit.  I know all of you have hundreds and hundreds of Disney and theme park photos waiting for the perfect layout.
These layouts were so fun and yes I am so guilty of having all of those photos laying around needing to go onto layouts and in my kids albums.  YIKES these photos were from 2004.  I can NEVER have enough Disney layouts.  Lauren loved meeting all of the characters at Disney World.  Her favorite experience of all was eating lunch at Cinderella's castle.  She was in big time heaven all day.
These layouts work so great for Disney and theme park but they will also make great birthday layouts. I used the photos for layout two from last year when Fred took the girls to Disney World.  Brandon and I were not invited to go with them since the two of us had just returned from Europe.  OHHHH well Brandon and I had had the best time ever in Europe so I guess that was only fair. 
We love staying at the Wilderness Resort.  We have a time share at the lodge and we love it there.  We can never come home until I have taken photos all around the resort.  Thanks to stopping by.  I have to run but I will be back later to add my details.
