Scrapping and Quilting

To take a break from stitching I did a couple of pages while watching the Olympics on Sunday and Monday.
OK, can you say BUSY! I thought I would try and see how it would look to use some really busy papers for our Independence Day pages and Yep, it just says busy! LOL That's OK it's kind of like how the day goes for us. DS A was so sweet and took the younger kids around the neighbor's yard on their 4 wheeler when he offered to let them ride. The kids loved it and grson I didn't want to get off! LOL
In the pic with the torches ds A did the imitation of the "chant" from the movie "Finding Nemo" and just cracked us all up.

I had taken several pictures of Easter things at home that I decided to make a page about it. Simple and easy from a sketch You can see our kitty Muffy who made herself at home in the Easter grass...I had to watch her or she would have started chewing on it and that is NO GOOD for kitties.

More Easter pics...it's hard to not use them all but I did make an effort to choose the ones I liked best. This layout and the one before are for MY albums to keep.

Supplies pp DCWV Spring stack, cardstock Archivers, ribbon, Offray, flowers Imaginese, border punch Martha Stewart

Progress on one of my goal projects in getting the borders on the Spinning Daisy quilt. I would be getting more done except I have decided to not take my machine down to St George for the next few days while Mr Creative is at a conference. I will just do the hand work I have in progress, read and watch the Olympics. Just laze around.
Back to the quilt. I played around with how to do the scrappy border and I am liking this one the best. Hope I have enough fabric to finish it LOL
