Yes I am still here!

I know I have not posted in awhile, and I have some great pics to show you from my trip to Oregon to visit Tricia, but life is incredibly complicated right now. I do have a layout I did before I left - a just for fun layout I did of my nephew Joshua and his dog Courage.

Hope to have some July Cocoa Daisy sneaks for you this weekend - including some sneaks of my July Project Kit.

Cocoa Daisy June layouts.

I guess it's time I share the projects I created using the June Cocoa Daisy kit. I would have to say this is my favorite CD kit so far this year!!

I used an Ali Edwards digital element for the title. I altered the wording to fit my layout and incorporate the letter stickers.

This little machine stitched banner was very easy to make, I'll share a tutorial on how I created it next week.

Did I mention how much I love this kit!!

I used the 7gypsies Ephemera Ancienne cards from the "Water Cooler" add-on to create this eclectic mini album. I used a Bind-it-all to bind the album together.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

A little randomness

Life is a bit complicated at the moment and my normal Spring delight of digging in the dirt has taken a back seat to other things. I do however, have a few beautiful blooms in my garden right now and after the rain stopped today I snapped a couple pictures.
Pink and white Peonies:

Japanese Iris:

A pretty, petite, peach rose:

And one of my favorite flowers, the Foxglove:

Most Foxgloves are biennials, but I have found that if they find a spot in your garden they like, then they will reseed themselves and you will have some of these pretties every year and this year they seem to be very happy!!

This last Saturday we spent the morning making Tiki masks (and a spear for Nate of course). I'm not sure where Nate got the idea, but he had a sketch for me to follow and everything. Zach joined in and we ended up with two very scary Tiki monsters running around the house :)

Have a great Thursday!!
