I still can't believe the month of July is almost of over. Where has this summer gone? The days are just flying by. It's about 5 months to Christmas. WOW!!
Well it's Sunday once again, so that could only mean one thing Sunday Scrappin time. Last week's challenge was to mail something to someone who wasn't expecting it. I am very good at making things putting them in the envelope and addressing the envelope but then it sits here and sits here and sits here. I'm not good at mailing things. I mailed my Uncle a card I never mail him a card so that will be a huge surprise. I had a package here to mail to a friend a month later she will finally receive it (she probably forgot about it it's been so long) and then I mailed another surprise to a special someone.

This week's Sunday Scrappin challenge is play in the grass! Scrap photos of someone playing in the yard... use grassy paper... make a card involving something in your yard (a BBQ?).... make a green fringed border that looks like grass... you get the idea. Have fun with it! This will be an easy challenge I have tons of pictures of my sister in the grass when she was little, buddy in the grass, our niece and nephew in the yard. The options are endless. Lets just hope I have enough ink in my printer to print the pictures (I should - big smile).

I am trying to get a new look to my blog, not really sure yet what template (background) I am going to use. Over the next few days the template may change. I will add my sidebar's back (blinkies, groups, favorite blogs etc.). If I do make a drastic change and you do not like it, LOL please do tell me. LOL!
Thanks for your patience and continue support. I appreciate everyone's comments.

I made this card for the Iheart2stamp sketch challenge. I love the sketch. I had this stamp for awhile and this is the first time he's seen ink, he is such a cute dog. The paw print is a sticker. I chalked around the outer part of the image to bring out the red a little more.
My friend forgetfulone made my day today by giving me these cute awards. It is always so touching to receive these awards. I know I'm a dork, but I really mean it.

Happy Sunday! Yesterday I went to breakfast with a bunch of my girlfriends and then later in the afternoon one of them came over to scrapbook, we are working on a baby girl scrapbooking for our other friend who is going to be a first time grandma. Can you believe my friend was here for 5 hours and we did more chatting then scraping, we got one page almost done (we have to go shopping). I'm so excited to have someone to scrap with!
Onto what this post is really about Sunday Scrappin. I have made a lot of terrific friendships through this group. Come check us out, you'll love it.

Keep participating in different blog challenges
I have a card idea I want to work on
Last week's Sunday Scrappin challenge was to do something different (ie. if you are a traditional scraper do a digital page) I didn't take part in the challenge, wasn't sure what to do. I save a lot of the free digital kits from the web but I'm not ready to do a digital page I like the idea of traditional scrapping. This week's challenge is to do something fruity, Fruit stickers, fruit paper, colors inspired by fruit... you name it. Hmmm...I think I can do that!
Have a crafty week!

You ever get into making a page or card and you finally look at the clock realize its midnight and then all of sudden you get real tired and can't finish the project? That's what happened to me last night, I felt great was printing all the pictures for the page had everything spread out looked at the clock it was after midnight and all of a sudden I got real tired and had to finish the page today.

I was going to put the Gone Fishin' image on the outside but it didn't look right so I put it on the inside.

Happy Sunday! I hope all of my American friends enjoyed their 4th of July. We had a wonderful weekend even though it was low key on the most part. It's Sunday Scrappin time again! Amy is a fantastic host over at Sunday Scrappin and I have met some wonderful ladies through that group. Come on over and visit us, it's a lot of fun.

Take a picture/post my sister's birthday card I made (check back for that later).
Want to work on at least 1 scrapbook page this week (either of the dog or niece and nephew)
This weeks Sunday Scrappin Challenge is to step outside your own box. If you always do traditional scrapping, try digital; if you're a scrapbooker, make a card; whatever it is that you normally wouldn't do, try it. Hmmmm.....I'm not to sure what I am going to do for this. I have loads of free digital scrapbook kits I saved to my computer but I'm not into the digital scrapbooking (love what others do with it but not my thing just yet). I save the kits and then use them in my traditional albums. I'll have to put on my thinking cap for this one.
