Although, I usually I have great intentions to get lots of pages done... and I usually walk a way with maybe one done... I seem to socialize more than I scrap...
Anyway, I hope you all have a great weekend... here's hoping I get something done. Ta Ta for now...

On this video I did a card using a Double Stamp Resist Technique. This technique is great to make a background for cards or scrapbook pages. I love how the texture stamp shows through the embossed image. Click here to watch video...

He called me while he was at the Harley store and said he was going to go through with it... At first I thought he was joking, but when he called later to verify our auto insurance... I knew it was really happening...
So, when he got home... he tells Rainee... and she goes ballistic... she's super excited and looking for it... and he tells us it's being deliverd tomorrow at 10am... then he pulls out all kinds of stuff from the dealer... Rainee is diggin' it, puts on the Harley t-shirt and then puts on Steve's helmit... and here's me...sitting in quite disbelief that he really did it!!
Fast forward to today @10am... the Harley arrives... and Rainee can't wait to get on it... she's, I think, more excited about the bike than Steve... and she just had to take a picture alone on the bike... she's cute... but what she doesn't know is mama is NOT going to let her ride that thing!!! But I'm sure over the course of time she'll see what I mean when I say... NO WAY...NO HOW...NOT GONNA HAPPEN!!!
As for me... in my younger years, I did date a guy with a Harley... and went on a several of rides with him... I even bought some Harley boots (which I still have and to this day... LOVE LOVE LOVE)... but I've been over the whole motorcycle/Harley thing for quite some time... and now... I really don't know how I feel... still in a bit of shock... but I do have to say... even though Rainee ain't gettin' on that contraption... she sure looks cute as my little Harley Girl...
And that my friends is what's new with us... what's your opinion??? Do you have motorcycles? Do you let your kids ride with dad??? Or are you like me... there ain't no way... I'd love to hear what you think.... Thanks for sharing!!!

mini golf... this was the first time Rainee had been mini golfing and she didn't really get the game... but that's okay... so we just hit the balls... we had a great day... one to remember!! On the layout I used the mini golf score card for my journaling... and I tried to make the brads seem like 'golf balls'... it doesn't matter if they look like them or not... at least I know what they are. Tee hee!

US... This photo is actually taken of us on our Mac computer in iPhoto Booth... it has some fun settings to do some funky photo techniques... and I just loved the large dot pattern... it reminds me of a cartoon... totally different... I cut out the butterflies from coordinating paper and I think the polka dot paper finishes off the look..

Crazy Hat Day... Rainee's school seems to do something fun every week... and this was one of them. She had already worn her 'really crazy hat' earlier in the year... so decided to go a bit conservative on this one... I just love the photo of her... and she looks sooooooo adorable in that cute little hat!!!

As for our vacation... we couldn't have asked for better weather... it was in the 70's & 80's... with a few light showers.... and well one rainstorm we could have done without... but we were traveling that day, so the only thing it effected was how long it took us to get from one place to another. But over all it was a wonderful vacation.
We traveled from one end of the state to the other... First to see my dad in Roslyn/Grenville then over to Rapid City to see Mount Rushmore. The last time I was there, I was in high school and it was pretty much just dirt all around and this amazing sight of Mt. Rushmore. But now... now, they've made it into a proper monument... At every turn you can get a different view... it was breathtaking! I think I must have taken nearly 300 pictures of just the monument.
Weather you're right next door or far away from a loved one, I hope you get the opportunity to share some everyday moments with them real soon, they really are the most delightful way to spend the day!!
