After our class at Ink It we headed over to Jan's Stampin Up open house "Cards, Cocktails and O'dheurves". What a blast! John was the officially barman and chef. Great food. Huge shrimp grilled to perfection, chicken kabobs, veggies and dips and margaritas oh my. Needless to say making of cards was a fun treat with all the goodies we ate and drank. Great fun.

More Saturday class pics






Book is finally finished. I like this little book. Clay embellishments were easy and added a lot of dimesion to the book.

Easter Sunday scenes





Food,family, and F-U-N!!! We had a super great relaxing fun day with lots of good food, games and laughter. The pork loin roast turned out super moist and tender, and all the sides were soo good. As usual too much food. Anthony was happy with his deviled eggs as Grandma Sherry followed the "rule" and had eggs on Easter. Following our meal the kids opened their baskets and then we played with all their stuff. We ended the day with CLUE. Cheaters were among us! Lots of laughs that is for sure. Hope all our family, friends and special people in our lives had a good day.

Finally done with Altered Art Book for April

















The 3 layouts I did for Lauries book. I so struggled with this book and it should have been an easy one WORDS now hard can that be. Anyway it is done and I can now relax till next round. Only 2 more trades and then we will get our books back. I'm anxious to sit and look at mine and take it all in. This has been fun for me, nerve wracking anxiety at first but the more I do the more I stretch my mind and do different things. Must be all the classes I take ha ha

Signs of Spring






Finally beautiful moderate temperatures and flowers blooming has arrived. It is Spring! Well weeds have arrived to. They seem to resist my pulling efforts and multiply faster than I can pull. It is time for the big guns "Weed Killer" Put that on my list of things to get at Walmart today along with Narnia for the kids. Here are a few pics of flowers in bloom. Unfortunately won't last long when the heat arrives but for now they are beautiful. I sure miss my hibiscus tree in the beautiful blue -purple flowers.

More April Challenge stuff



The Jeep is fixed oh yeah

I took the Jeep in yesterday to get a tune-up and fix a leaking what I thought was a radiator hose. Yeap there was a leak could it be so simple as a radiator hose. Oh no it was the water pump. So 4 hours of sitting later I have a new radiator hose, new water pump and the oil is changed. That is 500 dollars worth of tune-up. Seriously, I hate putting money into cars. They should run forever and not need expensive repairs.
Now that the car is fixed I can get about without worrying about getting stranded so today is the usual mundane things of grocery shopping, laundry, cleaning or..... I mite just play in my scraproom all day. Ha!
Colleen is in Brite Germany and having a ball. Beth is in Texas as her Mother passed away, and me still in Chandler.
Looking forward to a sunny quiet weekend. Yes pool I hear you, you need attention.
