Blog template and update...

This morning I was playing around with my blog and realized I needed to update a few things...before I knew it I had updated the template so I could easier add page elements but I realized when I did I lost several things... one being my blog friends links...OOps!!
Ah well, I wanted to add several new blogs to the list so I guess this is an excuse to do so...
If you visit my blog or I am on your blog links and would like to be included, please just leave me a note and I will add you :0)

Thanks for your understanding, I'll try to get right on this!...

Happy surprises...

My sweet Hubby brought home some beautiful flowers to me on the anniversary of our meeting each other 20 years ago...What a sweet surprise!!!...Our real anniversary isn't until December :0)

...I popped into the bookstore the other day and picked up the current copy of Somerset Studio and Cloth Paper Scissors magazines to peek at what was new...In both magazines many things caught my eye but in particular one artists work really stood out and demanded I look at it over and over again taking in all the small details that make her art what it is...The artist is Tracie Lyn Huskamp and if you haven't witnessed her art I encourage you to do so :0)

Call it timing or call it fate but when I got home I looked her up on the internet and was pleased that she was having a giveaway on her blog and I threw my name in the hat for the drawing...I was one of the winners of her outstanding bird stencils...They came in the mail yesterday all tied up in a pretty pink ribbon...I couldn't be more excited!!!I never win anything it seems... and I LOVE birds, so I am one super happy girl!!!

I can't wait to start playing around with them and see where my little mischevious MUSE takes me :0)
Thank You so MUCH Tracie, what a fun surprise for me!!!

Where's the Mouse???

Here are some of my favorite photos from our Disneyland trip...Did you notice something missing? Where's the Mouse?

I tried to get the interesting elements of our trip as well as those great D-land shots of the kids and Family, but I think I only got one shot of us with Micky....

The top left shot is of my 12yr. old son waiting in line for one of the rides...The Red pick-up was at a California roadside fruit stand that we stopped and got fresh fruit for breakfast one morning on the drive down...The two middle are just fun elements in the park (people were really funny watching me and trying to see what I was taking a picture of LOL)...
I hope everyone is enjoying their summer!!! I have more to post later, so check back soon :0)
