some layouts and some wicked good news...

Sunday blogging here! Hope this weekend is finding you well. We had an absolute blast Friday night at my friend Lori S's 40th birthday party. Crazy fun, danced for hours! A group of the hubbies did a Chippendale style dance for her (a tame one) and I was crying from laughing so hard. Yesterday and today we just hung around the house and outside. The weather here in Idaho could not be nicer. Leaves are starting to turn but it still feels like summer. We are still mowing the lawn and watering the flowers. I haven't gotten my fall decorations up yet. Still milking the summer feeling. I was inspired to do some layouts of some favorite summer photos:

 

 

 


This summer my friend Michelle celebrated her 25th wedding anniversary! WoW! That is quite an accomplishment and an inspiration. She wanted a canvas to commemorate their big event and I created this:

 



Thanks Denise for all of the Heidi Swapp and Jenni Bowlin goodness that graced my doorstep yesterday. I will blog about that manana with a BIG giveaway!

My good news is that I got a call from a woman that owns a stamp company and she would like me to design my own line of stamps with my handwriting! I don't want to give you all of the details until she approves my designs but they will be of high quality rubber and I am designing like crazy to give her lots to choose from!

Thanks for all of your comments, encouraging words and support!

So excited for Desperate Housewives premiere tonight!

Loves to ya!
