let your light shine

okay, I live in the mountains and there are no beaches and I know one person with a swimming pool so 99% of all the summer kits available are usually not very scrappable for me, but today I broke open the piggybank and bought this adorable mini kit by Jennifer Barrette (as we do have fireflies here) I luv the happy colors and the shabby chic feel to it, and it was 20% off lol I'll be sure to post a page here as soon as I get one done (I suppose since I finally, after a year, downloaded the pdf file for my camera and can get out of auto-mode) maybe I can get some firefly photos, that would be kewl!

oh, as a side note, I was thrilled this was a mini kit, don't know about you, but sometimes a page kit is right up my alley! there aren't 50 papers that I don't need and so many elements that rather than try and decide oh what will look best, I will simply pick out a button and a ribbon and call it quits lol

alpaca adventure

I pass these guys each time I drive over to see my Mom @ the Nursing Home, and they finally came close enough to the fence for me to get some photos, and while there, the owner came out and let me get up close and personal, and even give one a treat, ooooh, so fun!
