Boat Ride with the Girls!

We took a boat ride Sunday afternoon and decided that b/c it wasn't too hot that we would take the girls with us!!! So I put their sundresses on and packed up some water, snacks, pillows, towels and all the necessities you might need when taking your babies on a little outdoor adventure! We had such a great time! It got a little toasty at some points. Luckily, I had my little mini parasol to shade the girls! This was their first time on a river boat ride and they both LOVED it! Francie wanted to be right up front where she could see everything! Emma, as I expected, stayed very close so it was very difficult to get a pic of her as you will see below.

We saw all kinds of wildlife along the way. But the most exciting moment of the day was when we rounded a bend and saw a 10 foot alligator sunning on the bank of the river. As we approached it slowly eased into the river. I had my camera totally ready, but goofed and missed the shot b/c I simply couldn't believe my eyes! My whole life I've heard of gators being around the swampy areas of the river. But this was the first time I've ever seen one!! It was so exciting! Sorry I don't have a pic! =(

Wisteria & Baby Shoes!

The wisteria has been so pretty this year. It only lasts a little more than a week when it blooms then it's gone before you know it! I love wisteria b/c it's so colorful and vibrant, it smells so sweet, and you can hear it!! That's right!! It is swarming with big ol' bumble bees. Just buzzing and buzzing! For those of you who aren't familiar with wisteria. It grows WILD all over the south and can completely cover an entire wooded area with purple! On my Granny's dirt road it is completely lined in purple, from down in the ditches to the tops of the trees! To share with you how it smells, well, just think of lavender and add a bit more sweetness to it!

These pictures below are from our country ridin' we like to do on Sunday afternoons!

As I was photographing the wisteria on this old run down log cabin I looked down at my feet and saw this little baby shoe, as I looked closer I noticed there were quite a few of them hiding in the leaves and debris. In this photo I think I counted 1 dozen shoes. How many do you see? (click to enlarge)

TD11 - Turquoise Challenge!

Turquoise is my favorite color (besides pink, yellow & periwinkle blue!)  So this was a fun challenge to use the various shades of turquoise on this palette here:
You should join us on this challenge and make your own card!  There is LOTS of inspiration from out Design Team to inspire you!  Check out their cards here.
For my card I used the Clouds set and the Lamb Digital Stamp.  It's hard to tell on this photo but the colors came from the palette!  This was the first card I have made that I colored completely in Photoshop.  I printed out some extra clouds to make them 3d!  I lined those with my clear glitter pen.  I used my grass punch for the grass! =)  Hope you like it and I hope it inspires you to participate in this challenge!
