I'll Be Your Huckleberry, Part Deaux

So...I couldn't help myself. I had to turn these wonderful pictures of Weston into a scrapbook layout. It was fun...gave me an opportunity to try and do a "vintage" look. I am hoping to take several of our old family pictures and do something with them...but since most of my stuff has been "retro" oriented up until now, I needed to see what would happen when I went with a different style. So PLEASE, give me your feedback and ideas...I am a total sponge.

The journaling under the saddlebags & pistol picture is basically from my blog....

Ok...onto other fun things...Yesterday was the Super Crop at my lss, Scrap It. It was my first time to go to the SUPER crop -- 10-10...a whole 12 hours of women, chatting, chocolate and scrapping...is that as close as we're gonna get to heaven here on earth or what?!??! Tracie Claibourne had a great "Layout Takeout" -- which people really loved. Have I mentioned what a talented lady she is? She has an eye for color and the impact that it has on the total feeling of a lo that I really admire. You can link to her blog over on the right hand side if you want to see for yourself how totally terrific she is.

I also got to hang with Hollye Cross -- which was a fun thing all in itself. She was much more productive than I was -- but still manage to chat a bit. If you think about it, say a prayer for her dental stuff this week -- she is going through the "crown" drama...and I don't mean the "I'm a Princess -- look at my tiara" kind of stuff.

Finally, it snowed on Saturday...one of my all time favorite things. Some how this white stuff covering everything just makes it beautiful. I drove by a field that had several of those rolls of hay (not the bales -- but those big 8-9 foot rolls) and with them covered in snow and the sunlight twinkling off of them...I almost wanted to become a farmer...Yes -- that is how crazy snow can make me...I lose track of reality and the fact that most of what a farmer has to do is muck around in the mud -- pray for rain and sweat to bring in the harvest -- none of which sounds good to me (particularly the manual labor part of it all). However, for that one brief moment looking at the hay I was taken back to my childhood of Captain Kangaroo and Mr. Greenjeans and how fun being a farmer sounded. *whew* glad that whole moment is past.

Well...this week holds many challenges. Budgets are due at the office and I need to go finish mine up...procrastinating any longer is not going to make it go away...

Hope you have a great week....

  3. Hi Friend!
    Your layout looks great. I love the finished product! It was so much fun having you here all day Saturday. Too bad I had to work some of the time. Thank goodness for Tammy! (Thanks for sticking around and helping us clean up too)
    I hope you have a good week. Sounds very busy - did I tell you I hate any kind of budget?!
    I'll talk to you soon.
    Hopefully see you sooner!
