Puppies and Snow!

Ok, I made one page far anyhoo. it's still early. I definitely have enough pics on this page. lol

These pics were taken a few years ago in my parents backyard in Massachusetts. The dogs love to play, and they sometimes play rough. I had quite a hard time getting focused pics, but it was sure fun trying! Sadie is the black lab, she's my baby, another rescue. Morgan is the Golden..he's such a good boy. They get along very well, so long as he worships her.

Overthinking is bad!

My newest scrap page...I'm going to have more pages than not with many pics on them. I rarely will have a page built around just one least the way I take pics lately. Subject to change. hehe.

So here is my latest page done. One of my silly cat. I feel like I have more than that due to the 2-4 strays that hang out on the balcony sunning on a daily basis, but my boy is strictly indoors, so I don't worry about them.

Still being pretty new to scrapping, but have loved the magazines for several years, I decided to finally do my first "real" layout. The first of many, of course. I have a ton of embellishments, and paper. Never mind the tools and things. Sooo, I might as well put them to good use!
The one I chose to do was for my first tattoo, since I had all the photos needed from the start. I definitely enjoyed the process, and hope I can keep plugging along, so long as it stays fun. Since I also love photography, it won't be any problem at all!

Fresh Food

In my recent quest to start adding more fruits & veggies to my diet I went to the Jacksonville Farmers Market today. I walked all around checking prices and just seeing who had what. I ended up buying some okra, tomatoes, a red pepper, an onion and some yellow squash. Not a bad haul!

Today for supper I sauteed the squash, half the onion and a chopped tomato. It was delicious! I had some Italian Sausage that was thawed and had a scoop of that on top.

Check out my Slide Show!

Digging Thru The Archives..

So I was going thru some of my older photos, and decided to scan and post a few of my favorites.

I drove down to Florida in Feb. 2001 with my sister and her family for a short vacation. I was mostly brought along to watch my then 12 year old niece, while my sister and BIL went to the Daytona 500. The infamous one, where Dale crashed..very sad.
Anyhoo, We had a lot of fun, going to Daytona Beach, Disney, Universal Studios, St Pete, and then, sadly, back home to Massachusetts. Brrr.

While we were in St Pete, we took a boat ride/tour to Shell Island to collect Sand dollars, and other shells. I still have my little box of them, too. I got this picture as we were boarding the boat to go out, and it won a blue ribbon in the 3 County Fair, In Northampton. I'm very proud of this picture!

So today I made my way into Sephora, and Now I know why I pretty much stay away. Actually I didn't do too badly, considering they had a ton of new summer products to check out.

In the end I got several samples, some shower gel, and a 3 pack of probably the best smelling lotion ever.
