Summer's Ending

Wow I can not believe how fast this summer has gone by. School starts next week for Danny. 4th grade! Time goes by in a blink of an eye. I'm in a melancholy type of mood today. Not sure why, not sure of exactly how I want to feel. Some problems at home need tended to and right now I'm not sure how to do that.

Over at Simply Scrapping Crafts we are posting our challenges differently. We are to link them directly to our blog (I think). I'm still trying to get the hang of it. Anyway here is my take on the Stamp & Scrap, August Week 4, Spotlight Challenge. (If you haven't been over there to visit yet, I suggest you go. Every one is so wonderful. Judy has the most talented design team out there.

Creative Update

Someday I will figure out how to use this photo uploader correctly. Please bare with me while I figure out.

These cards were created for SSC challenges. Please stop over there and check out the incredible talents of Judy, the owner, The amazing DT and the awesome creations of it's members. I promise you will not be disappointed.

Aren't this little ghouls adorable? This was made for the August Paper Scraps Challenge. Using your paper scraps create a card using at least 3 die cut images.
The Friends Card to the right was made for the August Card Challenge, you had to use a frame, any kind of frame on your card. I never used frames on my cards before, and I really like the look of it.
Today is our nephew's graduation party. I've made 5 pounds of sour cream cucumbers and 8 pounds of broccoli casserole, which is in the oven baking right now. It is smelling wonderful. I've never made it in a bulk amount before, I hope it turns out and tastes great.
I have 1-1/2 hours before we have to leave. I need to get ready and my son needs to get ready. It is a gorgeous day outside, low 80's, no humidity. I would love more than anything to stay at home and relax, but...
Have a great day. Please feel free to leave a comment and let me know you were here.
Thanks for stopping by.

Wow! I can not believe how summer has flown by. I've been quite busy and haven't crafted as often as I would like to. Vacation for 10 days, then home for a week, then gone again for the weekend. I'm trying to catch up on chores and laundry.
Tonight I'm watching my friend's baby. I haven't had a baby in the house since Danny was a baby. I tried baby proofing as much as I could yesterday. Hopefully all goes well tonight.
On Sunday I have to decide which of my scrapbook pages and cards I'm going to enter in the Lawrence County Fair. I also have to go through the premium book with Danny. He has a few things he would like to enter. Also, next Friday will be our baking day, then Saturday morning we will take our baked goods and veggies up to be entered. Last year Danny won 1st place with his "Ginger Cookies" They were supposed to be "Ginger Snaps" but something happened that they didn't snap and they were soft, so we changed the name and he won 1st place. Not too bad for a screw up.
Tomorrow Danny and I are going to WalMart, Costco's and somewhere to find a pair of tennis shoes. Hopefully it goes well. Danny's not real into shopping.
Well my lunch hour is over and I have to get back to work. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
