I Have Been Busy...

I just realized I hadn't posted since last Saturday! This is a little of what I have been up to...

I finally finished my son's graduation album! We are going to his house for Thanksgiving and I wanted to have something to bring him. It is the first time Brian and Ashlie are hosting Thanksgiving and I am really proud of them!

Nails...for those of you who patiently listened to my whining while growing them out....I AM SORRY! I caved!

And finally...Christmas Cards...lots of Christmas Cards!

Celebrating 10 Years

I made this layout for my friend Debby, who is now a 10 year breast cancer survivor! Yes, 10 years! In celebrating, she and Kathy went zip lining...Yes, zip lining! They asked me to go, but I would rather take pictures and scrapbook the event! Congratulations! I am so glad you are my friend and that I am able to scrapbook this wonderful event for you.

Friday Flowers!

A girl can get used to this!

Fall Leaves...

I wanted to share these leaves we saw when we traveled to Petaluma for our anniversary last month. It has been 4 years...I tease my husband and say "4 full years"! We like to go there and visit one of our favorite quilt stores , shop in their cute downtown area and have yummy meals at any one of their restaurants.

October Block of the Month

I can't believe I am posting this. This block has lots and lots of seams, but as I always tell my bff "matching seams is so over-rated!" I am so glad I started tonight, it definately was not a last minute project.
