Love at First Bite??

. . .well, not really.  This was Connor’s first exposure to solid food.  He was not really in love at first bite.  In fact, he still isn't in love with food unless it is chocolate or humus.


Cherish Every Moment is a Weeds and Wildflowers kit. Cherishing Every Moment -  is a collection of fun and whimsical elements such as painted paper flowers, doodles, wordart, and stitched shapes. You will have fun creating soft, grungy layouts that remind you of what you cherish!




I hope you can get a page scrapped today that you will always cherish.  I will always cherish this moment with Connor.

Life 365 July Pages

Jet lag is real.  We have been back from Egypt for 3 days now, and I am finally getting some energy back.  Nicole kept a log while we were traveling which made it easy to keep up with her 365 project.

Gina Marie Huff, at Weeds and Wildflowers, just released her fantastic July pages.  Her computer died at the end of June so she has had to play catch up, but catch up she did.  The kit is teeming with color with great elements and papers.

WW_SS7_ElemPrev If you look closely, you can see Nicole’s sprained ankle.  Trekking around in 110 degree heat is pretty exhausting.  Can you imagine doing it in a walking cast.  What a trooper.7-July_1-3


… and remember Weeds and Wildflowers is having a huge birthday sale. so now is the time to stock up on your favorite WW goodies.shoppegraphic[1] Have a deLIGHTful day
