Fun in White Clay Creek

My favorite part of the day is when I get the opportunity to take my little dogs into a nearby park to frolic in the woods.  This trail is a nice and lengthy 3.1 miles for their little legs, giving them a little exercise and fun.  It's particularly nice when I get a chance to do it in the morning, because there are very few other folks around, making for a mostly nice and quiet adventure.  [Oliver really loves to bark like crazy at anything that makes a noise...but especially the mountain bikers and other runners...very annoying]

For those questioning my love for my dogs...Not to worry, the dogs are leashed.  I photoshoped out the leashes in many of these shots.

Pretty Layla wondering what I'm doing with my camera

There are two fields that when there aren't many people around, I'll let them run free and off their leashes.  Here Layla was taunting Oliver trying to get him to chase her.  They get SO happy when they see that we're approaching this field, because they know I'm gonna set them free.


What a great smile Layla has, yes?


Oliver is so used to the camera now that all I have to do is say, "Sit" and "Look here".  He is such a great poser!




Near the end of our walk, the clouds were really moving in and these GIANT turkey vultures were looking for a snack!

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:
HOP START
Oh, guess what else is going on...
IT'S OFFICIALLY SUMMER.
IT'S MY ANNIVERSARY.
Anyway... Here are a few images of the pages in the journal.





Each page has a little journal page insert: 

This journal was made from lots of recycled stuff, including...wait for it....
Toilet Paper Rolls! (yeah, I know...totally cool, huh?)
Old Book Pages (including those from a h…

Big Birthday Celebration

Are you here having fun hopping along with 3GirlJAM in celebration of Julie's sister's big birthday year?  What a great little cyber party we're having!  (she's really a young thing, but she's having a great year)

Well, if not, you should be hopping along (I'll tell you why in a moment). There are some really wonderful birthday ideas from all of us on the design team...and including Julie's two girls, who are also having fun celebrating their aunt's birthday.

If you need to go back to the beginning, head over to the 3GirlJAM blog to get started.  Otherwise....


Here's my card in celebration her special year! I used blue crinkle ribbon from the newly released Red,White,Blue Bundle.It's such a nice shade of blue!  The white has bits of the red and blue in it (and I love the ribbon when it's like that)...and the red is also pretty awesome...like marachino cherries.  The little button in the center is from Pinque Peacock (love lady bugs!) and e…
