A New Week Begins

We sure have been getting a lot of much needed rain here. Seems our new dog Lady is totally freaked out by thunder storms. Even with some xynax she is still shaking like a leaf with her eyes bugging out & all 50 lbs of her sitting on my lap -- not too enjoyable at 4 am when you are sound asleep.

Hope you all had a great mother's day.

Here's a project I made for a challenge at The Scrap Nook. It was inspired by a fantastic layout by Leah Killian. You can see her layout here.
Just some photos of what is blooming in my garden right now. With so much going on in the layout I kept it simple with the embellishing. The center is 4 cricut cut 5" circles that I did my faux chipboard sandwiching & covered it with a circle of canvas from the home dec section of Joanns.
Paper (Crate); Cardstock (Bazzill); Flowers (Hero Arts); Brads (Heidi Swapp); Ribbon (The Paper Studio Hobby Lobby); Alpha (American Crafts); Trim & Canvas (Joanns); Thread (Coats & Clarks)
You know how much I love a good online crop. Well there's one coming up over at Scrapperie this weekend. Here's the details:
Come join us at Scrapperie this weekend as we celebrate with our Spring Into Summer Crop!
Starting at noon on Thursday, May 14th, we'll have challenges, games and some other fun surprises to keep you scrapping all weekend long. The majority of the challenges will be listed Thursday and Friday, but all crop challenges won't be due until Monday night at midnight- so you'll have plenty of time to finish them.
The rest of the weekend will be filled with games, contests and other great activities that you won't want to miss out on! So, mark your calendars and invite your friends (because you just might win) and be here to celebrate as we Spring Into Summer!
I hope to see you there for a weekend of fun & prizes
Have a wonderful day!

I just saw this in the gallery at 2peas without realizing it was yours at first and thought to myself, how unique. :)

What a lovely page!! Poor Lady - hope the weather settles down for you soon. Better yet, send some rain down my way; we're in a terrible drought right now. :(
