But then I know most of the country is now suffering under a heat wave.  Guess that means it is a good time to stay inside and play with all the pretty papers and stuff. But, I haven't been able to get a lot done, because the garden is calling my name now.  Pat at One Little Spark the Shop has came up with the perfect solution for me, since I haven't had enough time to be creative on my on.  She has a Kit of The Month, that allows me to paste and glue and stuff without it taking too much time, but still I get the joy of creating.  Here is what July's kit was all about. A pretty little mermaid for me to color and then assemble easily with everything I need to make this cute little card. I didn't have to go hunting for dimensionals or string or scissors or anything. It was all included. The card and paper already cut to size and stamped.  It made it so easy for me to get a card out to a friend that needed to be put in the mail this morning.  Now to go make me a tomato sandwich with fresh tomatoes out of my garden.  Yum Yum.

2 Months

It has been 2 months since posting, a lot of birthdays, and celebrations have occurred.  My beautiful sweet mother celebrated her 90th birthday in June.  My husband celebrated his 70th, my little great-grandson celebrated his 1st.  A lot of milestones this year. 

My friend, Pat, at One Little Spark The Shop, is now carrying Becky Higgins, Project Life products.  I chose the "Baby Edition for Him".  I just love the little coordinating cards and papers included in this set. I wanted to chronicle little Wyatt's 1st Year.  I stayed up last night till 2 playing with all the pretty little papers, and picking out and printing my favorite pictures to use.  I did not realize it was that late, I was having such a good time.  This old body feels it this morning though.  I hope that Little Wyatt someday will enjoy sitting down with me and going through this album page by page, and me filling in all the answers to his questions about when he was "little".  I thought that for him that I should start at the beginning, sharing pictures of his Mother (my granddaughter) and her Husband and their wedding day.  The first page includes a picture of his mother and father's engagement and then their wedding day.  The second page has a picture of their first sonogram and his mother near the end of her pregnancy.  For this post I covered part of the picture with a post it note for privacy reasons.  I'm sure you all understand.  Pat can fix you up with one of these, she ships anywhere inside the continental US.

sorry about the bad pictures, we have had rain for 8 days and the lighting is really bad.
Here is a picture of Wyatt on his first birthday, I couldn't do a post without sharing one of him :)
Thanks for visiting today.
