Can I just tell you a couple things!?!?!

It is hotttttttttttttt! We are trying our best to stay cool...playing in the sprinklers, the little pool, sitting in front of fans, going to the stores...geesh. I am so not a hot weather person, lol.

I am ready for this memorial to be over!!!!!!!!!!! I loved my grandmother. I think about her daily. The boys talk about her. But this has turned into a major stressor for me. Trying to figure out the food, the sleeping arrangements, getting the pictures together...and the whole time dealign with my freshly opened grief...sigh. I know it is important for my family...I could just do without it. I told them. Please don't do this if I go before you. And Bran is all stressed with work and money...so we have a very stressed household,lol.

I will just be glad when it is over and I can get back to "normal". I will be back around here more then too, I promise ;)

We did get to see my youngest stepdaughter and her bf this weekend. she even spent the night. We hardly everrrr get to see her..and she lives 30mins away for goodness sakes. The boys had a ball and I really enjoyed her too.

Sunday we had a get together at Bran's dad. It was hotttttttttt, lol. we were outside. ughhhhh. in the orchard....lol. (I am sure whiney today huh,l ol ;) )

I got to scrap...and guess what peeps...it is a rectangle, lol!!! I threw some people off in my gallery...they were like...hey....what is going on!?! Well...I won a free 8.5x11 shutterfly book in their sweetstakes they had for father's day. So...I ahve to scrap rectangle! What does that mean for you? Well....I will be selling/giving away rectangle templates...perfect for their books!

Here is my layout I did with one of my new templates. It just cracks me up....it is all about trying to get that perfect picture and getting frustrated when the subjects won't cooperate. Then you realize...the pics you DID get are great...for they show the REAL them!! I heart them!! I also HEART the kit I used...the new collab kit between Bren Boone and Victoria Feemster...Adventurous Soul I know I am so lucky to be on Bren's team...but even if I weren't...this would be in my shopping basket. it is awesome!!

I love the photos you took . . . these are so much more fun than if the kids had been sitting still. (Do kids really ever sit still, except when they're sick??) Your layout has realy personality!! Thanks for sharing the template.
