days are good days!  Wouldn't you say!!  The sun is shining here.... we've had a couple of nice rains this week.  Jess came and stayed Fri night with us... and brought the grand-pups which was a nice surprise... Matt came by for a short visit Tues. on his way out of town.... AND.........

the pool seems to be working!  Which is awesome... seeing as for a couple of days the pump wouldn't come on and I was scared! really really scared!  It's working now, we think it was from all the rain.... at least that is what the internet said????   The water is clear.... and we've not even changed the sand yet!!  PLUS.... I had a baby frog in it.... and yesterday.. I'm not sure what this thing was... David said a lizard, but it had spots and didn't look any lizard I'd ever seen.  I'm thinking it was a Salamander... and no, I'm not totally sure... but I did look it up on the internet and it looks just like what was in the pool.  I just wasn't sure if it was poisonous or not... so I didn't get a picture, because I had to guard it and not let it out of the pool until David got home... and yes.... that is exactly what I did... I sat there with the net in hand, watching, ready to put it back in the water... and that is how David found me when he came in at lunch!  While I may not have gotten in the water yet... and have no idea if I can still remember what little of swimming I learned last year... it has been entertaining already this year.  Of course, it doesn't take much to entertain me!

Here are a few more layouts from the golf tournament.  I'm noticing that I've not been using much in the way of embellies lately.  Just paper.... and we know how I love patterned paper!  I think right now I'm just really trying to make some progress.  I've so many pictures, so many I want to scrap... and I'm just focusing on get them done.  So for right now, the less is more is really working for me.

Here's another one that I didn't put hardly any product in.  I did a little stamping on it, and I really like that part of it.  I couldn't get the title placed in a way that made me love it.... decided I was spending way too much time on that part of it, and just put it on there.  I figure in about 5 years, I'm not going to even remember I didn't really like the placement of the letters.  It all works out in the end, and the important thing is to get the memories down.

This photo is really important to the album.  Dinner is provided for the golfers and spouse each night during the tournament.  Each night we had to go to this board with all the scores posted, before we went in... and when we came out.  Each night!  Not to mention, I'm sure David stopped and looked at it when he arrived for his round and when he completed his round, after he loaded his clubs, and a few other times through out the day.  It just really tickled me, because we'd stand there for what seemed like an hour looking at this.  Ok, it really didn't tickle me... it drove me nuts.  But, loving someone means standing in front of a golf score board for an hour twice a day!

Wishing you all a great Thursday!

I love the banners and the stamped grass. And all of the lovely lime green.

Way to go on getting all those layouts done!!! You should take a day off. And what's more fun than taking a day off and scrapping?
Not much!!!

I love the stamping and the banners/pennants you made on the first LO are totally rock star!

Great layouts! I've been skimpy on the embellies lately too. With all that wonderful patterned paper you've got, who needs a lot of embellies anyways?!
Tournament scoreboards, hmph! I used to zone out trying to read the ones for Scott's ball tourneys and have to ask him, "so, how did you do again?"

Melissa said...

Yay for you getting all these done! I think they all look great. Love the designs!

And yes, in 5 years you will just be glad you have the memories scrapped!

Love the layering you did on the first LO wit the banners, very clever! Love the bold colors of the second one - love that red graph paper too! And genious to use the lines on the paper in the third LO for your journaling!

And what a great wifey you are! Sitting in front of that scoreboard for an hour twice a day!
