Great Blog Candy!!

Looking through blog links and found a great blog candy giveaway over at Scrap'n for Fun. You can find the information HERE

Also - anyone into scrapbook swaps, I will be setting up a rather challenging 52 week swap on several boards. No, you don't mail weekly, but every other month you will need to mail items. You can sign up for one week, two weeks, every week, every month, whatever. Nothing too hard, but should be lots and lots of fun. Right now I am looking at listing on the Cricut board, Scrapbooking Fun.Biz board, Sketches 4 All Board and maybe one or two more. Limit of 9 participants per week to keep things moving. More info by September 1 :)

Some scrappy file folders from old swaps that I have created.

It has been a while

since my last posting, but things have been flying. Another short trip coming up for dd and myself. Should be a lot of fun. Not a typical shopping and sight seeing, but camping and the great outdoors.

If you have some time to do some surfin' ran across this fun blog with wonderful candy this morning over at LiFe AnD tImEs of A 12x12 ADdiCt

Putting together a new swap group, using microscope slides as a base over at Scrapbooking Fun.Biz. Come join in the fun if you enjoy swaps. Check out the Day 2 Day section if you are looking for some simple challenges. This great group of ladies just finished up an 11 day scrapbooking challenge. Wow are some of these women talented! I wish I had more time, but with Day Camp in the midst of the challenge and temps near 100 for most of that time, I just didn't have the energy to complete anymore. However, I do have a pile of items on my table to finish putting together when there it time. Too bad non-adhered layouts don't count. LOL

Speaking of Challenges - have you visited Sketches 4 All yet? There are a ton of really fun (and challenging) things going on over there and some of the gallery items are really rockin!

I have a few layouts posted at the sites mentioned above, so just sharing some fun type photos. The kids have been very busy this summer - below are a few pictures either they or their friends have taken from around the United States.

For those of you who know us, we do have a lot of pictures of each flying item at the Air and Space Museum and at the AFB another boy visited. Boys went to different sides of the country and guess what I have the most pictures of? Just makes me smile - and I am getting better at scrapping various airplanes, rockets, helicopters, missles, etc..

Why a photo of the Tick Habitat sign - we just had to laugh. After living in this area, it is easy to forget that looking for ticks each night was not a common/daily practice when we first moved up. However, this sign just made the boys smile and reminded them of home.
