*reflect* :):):):):):):):):):):)

hi all.....

with that tutorial I posted yesterday....I totally forgot to share some things from the weekend! LOL :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Went and saw Eclipse for the second time...this time bringing Hubby and Adam (Thanks Nana for babysitting Brookie for us!)....here we are at the theater! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And we went to a quaint little restaurant on Friday night...really good food and service...its called "Amante" and its right up the street from me...if any of my AZ friends would like to know the who's and what's of this place...feel free to send me an email.... :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And while we were there...the sun was setting and Brookie was leaning towards the front window ... and I was able to catch these photos....which I have made into my latest lo I named "REFLECT," which I am using for the latest challenge over at "The Studio" which was to use orange and yellow as your main color scheme....I used a NoelMignon.com kit on this lo and threw in some of my own embellies that followed the colors! :):):):):):):):):):):)

And I made another card last night...wow...I am on a roll with these things!! LOL! :):):):):) This one I made for KATELYN, Jacque's daughter...as poor thing scratched up her nose pretty bad and chipped a tooth :( ... Jacque asked if we could send her some cards for her....see here...if you are interested in sending a little get well to katelyn :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And Amanda gave me an award the other day.... Thanks Amanda! :):):):):):):):):):)
“This award is to recognize good design, writing, photos, etc.; to network amongst other bloggers; inspire content ideas, etc.
Conditions of the award stipulate that I need to share seven things about myself and then pass on this award to other wonderful bloggers.”

So here are my seven things:
1) One year ago today, our house was robbed.....I picked "STRONG" as my OLW this year....and I'm still not there yet...I have taken precautions to make sure we are safer now....but as for me being stronger...I have awhile to go... :)
2) (Andrea knows this one! LOL)... Its the family joke that I should have married someone with the name ROBIN....as on my Mom's side we are "Peacock's," and on my Dad's side we are "Eagle's"....no really...that is our family names! LOL :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
3) I got in trouble at work once for NOT dressing up with my team for halloween....really, I did..... took me over 3 years to get THAT erased from my record....sorry...not a big halloween person here...the kids, yep....me, nope! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
4) I have always wanted to write a series of Children's books....even have the ideas in my head..... :):):):):):):):):):):):)
5) Laundry is my LEAST favorite chore...if ONLY clothes would fold themselves! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
6) Pringles are my FAVORITE potato chip! :):):):):):):):)
7) You will RARELY see me smile with my teeth showing...I have crooked teeth...and I hate them with a passion.... soooo unless I am caught off guard in the photo....you won't see my teeth! :):):):) LOL :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
Sooooooooooooo....I always have a hard time passing these on...as I can never chose peeps...so whoever wants to play along with this award and its criteria.....please make sure you link me up! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Thanks for stopping by...I appreciate it! :):):):):):):):):):)


  1. Really really love those reflection photos!!!! and your layout shows them off so beautifully and enhances the colors. Sounds like a fun evening! I also have crooked teeth and never smile with my mouth open so I totally understand what you were saying. Have a great week!

  2. I never noticed that you didn't smile with your teeth showing. It's a pretty smile nonetheless and you are one of the most cheerful people I know.

    Happy summer!

  3. Fabby layout Julie, it is so bright and cheerful! :) :) Great choices for your 7 things, laundry is my least favourite chore too ;)

  4. Love the layout of Brookie! Great pictures in that. I love Pringles, too!!!! We are so BFFs! :) LOL.

  5. wow - what awesome reflection photos! you really are a mama-razzi!!

  6. sounds like you had a chock full of fun weekend! Love your layout...soooo fresh & fun...the colors are great! Awesome card...she's going to love it!!!! I loved reading the fun facts aboutcha!!!!!! happy tuesday!

  8. cute pics... and love the lo... Rainee loves seeing the relection of herself in anything... it's amazing how simple things are to kids... love it!!! tfs! {{hugs}} Michelle

  9. those layouts with Brookie are simply wonderful. I love the photos of her looking through the glass and her reflection coming back. I love learning new things about you. Can't believe you got into trouble for not dressing up...really is that a new job requirement??? :)

  10. OMGoodness, Julie! Those photos are KNOCK OUT GORGEOUS! I love how you have captured Brookie looking into her own reflection...and the window is so CLEAN! LOL
    And wooo hoooo for spending time with the Big Guys! Nana's are Great!!!!!

  11. Hi Julie,

    Your layout of Brookie's reflection is so cute, very bright and happy, too!

    Number 7 on your list is'nt correct. I've seen your smile and it's beautiful. Now, I've got really crooked teeth and for something funny on that: in my first marriage, my husband is Persian (Iranian) and had a very thick accent. A lot of the time he mispronounced things regularly. Instead of "buck teeth" which I do have, he called them "bucket teeth." Pretty silly, but true. Why are we always so unhappy with ourselves...give it up girlfriend, you're beautiful and I've seen it, so quit being afraid to show the world!


  12. that reflect page is so beautiful - what gorgeous photos too! i wondered why i've never seen your teeth! i bet they aren't as bad as you think:)
