eclectic post today

Okay, it is going to be an eclectic post kind of day! Remember the pull-out scrapbook I made HERE? Well, I got the photo's that I ordered from the trip and placed them in the album. I'm actually quite thrilled with how it turned out. I'm not sure how the pictures will show up on the actual post but the side with Kyler on the horse is the right side. There is also a picture of my grandpa, his wife Fern, and Marvin and Jean. Then I left one of the squares blank so that I could write them a thank you note. The other picture then is the left side and shows the horse with the wagon. Marvin allowed Kyler to take the reigns and showed him how to lead the horse. He tried with me too but we almost crashed so I gave it up. I'm a dork I know! I just wasn't sure what to do with the pictures because they needed to be the size they are so I hope cutting them in half like that looks okay. I love the little frames with the die cuts that I made though. It really makes each picture look like its own little masterpiece! Marvin and Jean should have received the album by now so I really hope they are enjoying it!

***Susanna picked this little scrapbook as one of her favorites for this week! You can see it HERE!***

The final picture is a picture of the 6x6 scrapbook that I just got from SU! the other day. I decided I needed an album to put all the recipes in that I've been getting from Courtney's recipe swap. I've been able to participate three times and in those three times I've gotten 40 (yes 40!) recipes! I'm signed up for the one I linked you too as well. The recipes look great and overall...the scrapbooking is good! If you want to join her swap Courtney is accepting sign ups until July 5th!

I'm still taking sign ups for my Summer Sister Swap so if you'd like to participate check out the details HERE, make sure I have your e-mail and sign up!

We are supposed to get some t-storms today but they've said that for several days now. But, if we do...I'm so stamping! I have signed up for lots of things that I need to get started on! Oh, and the wind is already howling...fun...not!

Have a great Thursday!

The pull out scrapabook is very nice. I bet they will love it.

Did you not hear or see the thunder and lightening early this morning? My dog was going nuts. That is the only way I heard it.

Have a great day.
