Summer fun and BRD...

The kids and I have had a ball over the last few weeks just enjoying summer. Sleep overs, family time, camp and days trips have filled our time. I hate to think that back to school is right around the corner.

Last week we went to Ryerss Farm for Aged Equines. They give tours of the farm and we loved seeing all the horses they are saving. What a wonderful place and what a wonderful thing they are doing.

We also took a trip to St. Peters Village. It is a tiny town that lies along a creek. We jumped rocks, hiked in the woods, and had ice cream. What a fun day! We also took our neighbor along. Here is a picture of the kids on a boulder.

I have squeezed in a little scrapping this week. I am in such love with the papers from Black River Designs. They just get my mojo flowing! Here are a few DT projects I just finished. I also added a jotter from Creative Chaos...can't get me enough of those...and don't forget Free For All Friday...stop by today for your chance to win some goodies!



Here is a little sneak from my first Pebbles, Inc. DT project! You will not believe the talent on this team...their projects are amazing and I promise you they are nothing less than spectacular. Next week be sure to check the Pebbles Inc. blog for all the goodies.

Now for a video that I promise you will entertain...maybe even make you laugh and cry at the same time...no matter what you day is like, this will put a smile on your face. Just take a minute and relax!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Glad to know that someone is out to save the aged horses! It is sad they can be so loved to get old and discard. What great stuff you made as usual!
