I've been super busy...you know that FUN kind of PRODUCTIVE busy that makes you smile from the inside out?!
I spent Memorial Weekend with my children in Utah...Hill Air Force Base, where Noelly is stationed for now. I am soooOOOOoooo proud of her! She's so grown up, it is scary to me sometimes...and makes me see all the things I may have forgotten to share with her along the way. I pray...and add in little snipits of experienced life wisdom when I can...and when she's open to hearing it too! Ha!
I LOVE seeing my girly in her uniform too! :)
We drove home Monday...and it is ALWAYS SUPER HARD for me to leave my kids EVER! My eyes leaked some...
On our ride home, I had to stop a couple of times for pictures...thankfully Fos and Olivia were up for this too!
I've always wanted to stop and take pictures of this cool graffiti wall in Utah.
Then...as we were rounding our way around Swan lake, and the rain clouds were ALL around us, with a little bit of the sun popping out to say hello, and give us a GORGEOUS colorful smile...again I had to STOP to capture it!
It seemed like I could reach right out and touch it! This is the closest I've ever been to a rainbow before. You can literally see where it enters the water and fades away! :)
Then I get home to this super FUN news!
So this was something fun that made me smile! :)
I've been busy getting caught up since I got home, with crafting, and work...feeling a bit overwhelmed, but at the same time, accomplishing things on my check list! That always feels good right? :)
Here are a couple of sneaks for a fun Guest spot I have to share, reveal coming soon! :)
Can anyone guess? :)
Next up...We are having an AWESOME fun "Summer Lovin Crop" over at Noel Mignon's site...come join the FUN with us all and our fun daily challenges!
Come join us on this challenge for a chance to win a $20 GC at Noel Mignon's store...and a chance for a spot in the STM Hall of FAME too!
Here is what I created for the challenge...and you can also view it here! with supplies used.
Supplies used to create this layout: Noel Mignon's June Summer Wind Kit...
I love the doilies that came with this kit, and they were the perfect touch for making a fun bow border along the bottom of the photograph. The stamps that came with this kit work great with the paint dauber as well. Love all the colors and how it all came together to compliment the photograph.
About the song and why I chose it...I'm a big fan of Lindsey Buckingham, and every time I hear this particular song, I think of Olivia and her sweet smile when she looks at me. Lately, she's going through a phase, where she doesn't want to pose for pictures as much as she use to. Well, on her 10th birthday, we were having so much fun decorating and making decorations for her party, that she turned to me and gave me that sweet smile of hers. When I heard of this challenge, I knew exactly what picture I wanted to use and what song to use with it.

Now...it's FRIDAY! What do you have planned for this wonderful weekend? I plan to get creative some more and if it decides to get warmer, go for a hike!
Have a wonderful weekend!
Think good thoughts!
