"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." ~ Isaiah 55: 8-11

HAPPY SUMMER! / RS #166...


Hello! I hope you're having a great weekend! Summer started here and we've already been playing outside in the sprinkler today and are getting ready to throw some brined pork chops on the grill! I'm so excited! These chops are SO AMAZING! 

Anyways, my card today is for this week's RetroSketch. I used this beautiful sun die from Echo Park (designed by Deena Rutter). The other cloud dies are from various companies. I wrote in the sentiment by hand.

 

Bye for now...

HAPPY BIRD HOUSE / DS #202 & ADFD Showcase...


Hello and HAPPY SUMMER! Yesterday was Alex's last day at school. Poor kid, every day this week he woke up mad, not wanting to go the last couple days, but in reality, he was just too sad to go! He felt a lot better after he admitted it, though and enjoyed his last day immensely. I finally got my card finished for this week's Deconstructed Sketch and ADFD's Showcase of  Bird Watching!! I used the image Happy Bird House from A Day For Daisies!

Be sure to head over to the Deconstructed Sketch and see the gorgeous inspiration the other ladies have linked up...


Have a wonderful day!

FUN / Simple Scrapper May 2015...


F-U-N! Who doesn't like to have fun? These pics were taken a couple years ago - we were at the lake having game night. It's funny to note that these days, we play Connect Four and leave the hungry hippos at home!

I used one of Simple Scrapper's May 2015 Story Starters, which are all about Leisure Time! I also used a previous template, both are part of the monthly membership, along with access to all archived templates and Story Starters. I love how Simple Scrapper inspires me to capture the little moments/stories in our lives!

 

The kits I used are both from Micheline Martin Designs, 35mm and Painted Little Dots.

A ZOO~PER DUPER DAY / Simple Scrapper May 2015...


Alex's class recently went to the Montgomery Zoo! Jeff and Maisie skipped work/preschool to go with us! Alex's friend Seamus also walked around with us, we had a great day! 

I used one of Simple Scrapper's May 2015 templates, along with an older Story Starter, which are both part of the monthly membership! As a matter of fact, member have access to all previous templates and Story Starters. I loved this template because of all the multiple photo slots - perfect for our little trip!

I also used Echo Park's mini theme kit Day At The Zoo. I pulled up a few zoo scrap kits online and Alex picked this one.

YOU ARE A SPECIAL BLESSING / RS #163...


Well, it's been a long day! After posting the latest RetroSketch, we immediately jumped in the car for a little road trip to Westville, Georgia. It took about an hour and 45 minutes, but it was a lovely drive through little towns. My parent's and nephew went, too. It's an 1850's "town", with over 30 buildings to explore. There were about 4 people in period clothing today, one driving the cart and a few more in and around house performing some task. One weekend a month they have more people who work in the pottery shop, the blacksmith, and other quilting & farming. We had a wonderful day!


For this card I used some old BasicGrey paper from my stash and one of my favorite sets from My Favorite Things -  LJD Cheerful Blessings


Big hugs!
