The weekend was fantabulous!!

I hope you all had a great weekend too! We went to see Kung Fu Panda and The Hulk. Loved both movies!! If you haven't had a chance to see them, I recommend them both! We also did a little yard work and I was able to do a little scrapping. I didn't get Eddy to the river or lake yet, so I am going to have to make that a priority for next weekend. The rivers are really high and muddy here yet, so hopefully next week will be better!

I didn't get any reading done either. Heidi stole my book, lol, so I am going to have to choose another one until she is done. The Book Thief is really good, so I can't wait until she finishes it. Don't know what I will start on, probably A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray. I am going to read this book because it is popular in our High School Library and I like to keep up on what the kids are reading. I love to be able to recommend books and know what I am talking about.

We got a call from Benny last night, and it sounds like the Mission trip is going well. They went white water rafting yesterday and will start working at the Reservation today. I miss him!!

I just wanted to post the layout I just finished. I wanted to do a fun happy one because all of my layouts lately have been serious and a little brooding. I have to get out of this funk that I am in! The best way to accomplish this is to scrap with bright, happy colors and boy did I scrap with bright, happy colors! Thanks for looking!

The journaling says: Soakin up the sun at Venice Beach, CA 1990. It is so hard to believe that this picture is 18 years old. Yikes! I am so thankful for scanners. That poor picture was a 3x5. I am so glad to be able to manipulate photos and make them usable. I was terrible at taking pictures back then! This picture is so cute of Beth and Heidi. They were 3 1/2 and 18 months old. Bethany was quite a little mama back then and Heidi was very patient. It is even more amazing to see what good friends they are now-18 years later!

Have a great Monday,

Kristii

Great job with that older photo! Beautiful layout! I really want to see the Kung Fu Panda, but I don't think my little guy can handle the theater yet.

Kristii, your layout is awesome. I love that you did it on clear/acrylic. Working with acrylic is a challenge for me, so I am in awe of those who do it and do it well - like you. :o)

Thanks for the book recommendation. I am always looking to add more to my to read list!
