Early Morning

Hope you are off to a great weekend. Today was a beautiful day so DH and I spent the first half of the day doing yard work. Our lawn was overdue for a much needed mowing so we got that all taken care of and the yard looks much better. All the kittens seem to be happy too cause they all came out to romp and play around .. they're so cute to watch!

Took the girls shopping with me this afternoon and we had a really good time together. I even let one of them drive home now that they have their drivers permit. They're doing quite well. They only scared me a couple of times .. LoL.

I picked up a new DVD to watch later tonight. You know how I love movies .. LoL. Anyways, I got Elizabeth, The Golden Age starring Cate Blanchett, Geoffrey Rush, & Clive Owen. Have you seen it? I hope it's good.

Well enough rambling .. LoL! Here's a new kit for you .. hope you like it!

Kit includes:
6 - papers
1 - photoborder
1 - notepaper
4 - ribbons (2 flat, 2 w/folds)
3 - flowers
3 - buttons
1 - belt
2 - accents

Tonight is graduation night at school so the girls went to see some of their friends graduate. Next year it'll be the girls' turn to graduate. I can't believe how fast this school year has flown by. There is only about 7 days left of school and then they'll be out for summer vacation. When they return back to school after summer vacation they'll be seniors. It's almost too overwhelming to think about. Gosh, it seems like only yesterday that I was teaching them how to tie their shoes. Sometimes I wish I could just roll back the clock to that point in time again so they'd be little once more. I guess every parent wishes that at one time or another .. LoL.

Anyhoo .. here's some tulips I was playing around with. Hope you can use it for something.

Face Off

Face Off

I managed to capture a few pictures of a couple kittens the other night and here's a layout I did of one kitten staring down one of my tom cats. Almost looks like they're having a face off .. LoL! I played around with the color settings on my digital camera when taking this shot and I think it gave it a unique look.

Glitter Tiles Set4

Glitter Tiles Set4

Our trip to the doctor's office went well yesterday. They checked Dad's eyes and they issued him some new glasses which he should get sent to him in the next couple of weeks. We even picked him out some new frames which looks much better than the ones he has right now. The VA is also going to fix his hearing aides for him too. I was pretty tired by the time I got home .. guess it was from all the driving but it was a good day.

Here's a new set of glitter tiles for you .. hope you can use them!

On a different note ..
A few of you have written to me in regards to the download link not working for the Imagine kit. I don't know what has caused the link to stop working but I've fixed it several times now, even deleted it and uploaded it again to insure that it's working properly .. last I just checked, it's working. Sorry for any inconvenience!
