Long time no see!

WOW I knew it had been awhile since I posted on my blog but February? Oopsies! I know daily is unrealistic to me but I need to pick one day a week to post. Not much new going on in my life. So I will just share some recent creations.  This first one is a page that I lifted from a magazine.  Sorry I do not recall from whom.  But I did this page at the Scrappers Dream Vacation I went to back in March.  
I also did the following page at the SDV (Scrappers Dream Vacation).  I used my Cricut a lot that weekend.  
Another creation from the weekend from a sketch challenge I provided for me and my 3 friends who went to SDV with me.  This is using a Studio Calico kit.  
And this final page is for the second page I completed for Miss Hippy Chick.  She provides occasional sketches and I design a page based on that sketch.  This is a picture of dd with her new fishing pole at Rodanthe, NC.  And she wanted me to make sure that you knew that aforementioned fishing pole "lights up".  
Last weekend I was at a Life Preservers weekend crop held in Glasgow, KY.  Mindy provided a card sketch challenge.  I made this card for my father who at the time was hospitalized for pneumonia.  Yeah this past month has been CRAZY.  I had a blast in KY but hated being away from my dad when he was sick.  And I don't see myself driving 8.5 hours to go to a crop again.  That was a little much.  The bed and breakfast we had it at was amazing.  The owners are the most amazing couple.  They love the Lord and their labor of love resolves around serving him.  The name of the place was The Narrow Way.  The food was nothing short of amazing.  I thought I was a decent cook until I ate there and I don't even come close. 
I hope to not be such a stranger.  I am thinking every Wednesday will be my blog day.  We will see how that goes.  Thanks for coming by.

Those layouts and card are great! I love the title on the last one...I'd probably fish more if I had a pole that lights up! lol

I just love your style....your layouts are all so beautiful...I am loving how you turned that bingo card like that and tell your daughter I think she is super "kewl" for having a light up fishing pole!!!

I'm so lucky to have a friend like you to go to places like this... This will be my best memory ever (except for my whining about being away from hubby for so long)... It'll get easier for next time we go away.... In fact, I'm ready to go somewhere NOW! It figures, ya gotta work instead! Thanks for sharing the memory of my very first scrap weekend out of state!
