My Treasures

My new scrapbook page was a part of the Big Picture Festival over at Big Picture Scrapbooking. This was an idea from Stacy Julian on taking a picture of something you treasure and scrap about it. So I chose to so a page on my stuffed animals I have had since I was a little girl. I totally wanted the page to be really girly with lots of flowers. I love how it turned out, it was so much fun to do!!! I got the idea on doing the flower with the stem from an art journal page of Donna Downey's.
Have a super day,

Mini Art Journal

Hi, I have been participating in the mini art journal tutorial with Jana over at Jana is an incredible artist and she inspires me. The tutorial is tought in three parts. It was a blast & I learned lots. I really like the freedom art journaling is about.

I messed up a little on the cover not paying attention to where I was sewing on the heart(lol). Also I should have used the other half of the paper towel to use as part of the inside cover. I really like how the pages turned out. I just might have to make another:)

Scorpions, Tesla & Jackyl

The Ber-Fest was finally here. Our family has been excited for months. We were on row L which was the 12 row at USANA. It was a blast & really, really loud!!!!!
Here are some pic's.

Wating in line for the gates to open. It was way hot I tell ya.

First off was Jackyl. They did a few songs one of them was the Lumberjack song! Love it!!! The singer Jesse James Dupree sawed a stool up during the song.

Second up was Tesla. Craig has liked them for years, in fact this show was the third time he has seen them in concert. Cade really likes them too!!!

Finally it was the Scorpions turn. WOW they were loud.

Rock on !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yummy Frozen Lemonade

I have been wanting to try some frozen lemonade. The recipe is the one on the stuff I wanna make list. I made it like the recipes says using the can of lemonade & three cans of cold water.

TA,DA here it is when finished. The first time we made it, it took only 15 minutes until it was done. This this time it took along time (almost an hour). I think we had more water in with the ice & salt mixture. We will definitely add more water next time. We have also tried frozen rootbeer too. They are all so yummy. Soon we are going to try grape juice & 7up to try to make frozen lime ricky's. Oh ya!!!!!!
