Aren't you so glad that it's Friday?
Can I get a little
The craziest thing...we watched the weather before going
to bed last night.  We were hoping that we'd get some rain, but the
weatherman told us that it wouldn't happen. At 2 AM we awoke to 
the loudest thunder and the brightest lightening that I've ever seen.  A loud
pop struck at the front of the house and this morning we find out that one of 
our large oak trees was hit by lightening...about 20 yards from the boys' 
bedroom!  It rained all night; it's still raining :)
Sometimes you love it when the weatherman is wrong...this is one of 
those times.  We greatly needed the rain!

Wanted to share my last card for this month's 
at My Scrapbook Nook
The challenge is: Round-And-Round
I asked that everyone use at least FIVE circles on their card.
Here's mine:

I chose to use nothing but the red/pinkish tones from the 
My Mind's Eye Indie Chic Collection and coupled it with the bright green
and pale yellow from the Jillibean labels (also in July's Kit).

Also, we're having a 
These are challenges that have been posted and will be posted all
Summer long at the Nook.
My challenge is a PINSPO Challenge 
(Pinspo= Pinterest+ Inspiration)
I've asked everyone to use this subway art as inspiration for
their card

  2. Gorgeous cards! Love how you layered the circles in the first one.

I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  
After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then…
