Hi and howdy scrappers! How has life been treating you? It has been many moons sine I have visited this poor neglected blog. But guess what?!?! I am backkkkk. I made some life changes and shifted and looked at my priorities and here I am. Want to know what I have been up to?

The end of the school year was when I last checked in with you. I was bombarded with parties, swim days, preschool graduation and more. We made it through with nary a scratch and hit the summer vacation full speed ahead.

I got to go on many little side trips with my family...much needed.

My cousins from Massachusetts came out and we went with them to Calistoga. We stayed in a lovely little place with mineral pools (three with varying degrees of temp) and cozy rooms (more like little apartments). I could have stayed for a month. Very relaxing and such a cozy little town. While there we went to the Petrified Forest and to Old Faithful. The boys LOVED it!!

Here are a few pictures:

Then we spent the Fourth of July w/Brandon's friends. Lots of fun!

then off to Berlin-Ichthyosaur State Park in Nevada. There is an old mining town and Ichthysaurus fossils. Chase has been itching to go there for two years! It was veryyy cool!

Then the highlight!! We flew to Minnesota to visit my bestie...Missy and family. We stayed for two weeks and had so muchhhhh fun! We went camping where we played bags, drank a lot, ate a lot, rode four wheelers and laughed! Then we went back to their house where we thrift shopped, went to the zoo, the lake, Duluth and saw the most awesome storm. I had so much fun. I miss them soooo much. I will save my pictures of that vacation for next post :)

Now the boys are in school (Chase started 3rd grade and Hayden is in kindy.) I am at the school quite a bit...even trying to get a job part time there. They both are playing soccer as well! woohooo. Go Red Bulls and the Tigers!!

All this fun led me to my decision to take a break from designing my templates for sale. I just couldn't keep up with everything. And I wanted to get back to the side of scrapping I love...the actual scrapping! Woohooo! So get ready for lots of pages!!! This decision had nothing to do with my love for FPD. They are still my girls and I love them dearly. They have new and great stuff going on there and I look forward to participating!

And I will be giving my templates away again...another woohoo. Today I am giving you a template to continue my project 65! I have some die hards who really wanted to continue!!

So...without further ya go. Personal use only. No direct linking to the template...send your peeps here yada yada!

I look forward to posting my ramblings on a regular basis. and I have some surprises in store for you! so stay tuned!
