live, laugh, love :):):)

Hi everyone :)

Wanted to share a layout I made for Yvonne's guest blogger Lynnda's challenge .... "Go Minimal" :):):)







Everything on here I got from BlueMoonScrapbooking.com except for the ribbon on the banner which is from Pixie Dust Paperie :)

And yesterday I went to lunch with some special ladies Laura, Sherry and Marydon at YUM Cheesecake Factory! :)
Laura's yummy salad :)

My yummy salad :)

Sherry and Marydon! :)
Had soooooooooo much fun with these ladies...and then when I came home.. I had a little visitor on a tree outside my patio... he was just chillin' there for almost a half hour!!! WOW!! Can you see him??? He is a hummingbird...and they rarely stay still! :):):)



Got a busy day ahead of us... but before we head out for a family day of fun... I am off to visit all of you! :):):)  Make sure you stop back in on WEDNESDAY this week... I get to FINALLY reveal my super secret Prima altered project I have been working on! :):):):)

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :):):)

  27. Good Morning Julie Sweetie...
    Oh what fun we had that day. It was great food, great laughs and great company. I love it when we get together. We have to start doing this at least once a month, if only us two. I would love it.

    Love the little visitor. Is he not sweet, or she? Mine used to sit in our tree and talk and talk to me, she would hover right around me, when lightning took the tree, it took her special place to talk, so now she just flies in and flies out. Thank you for sharing this beauty.

    Again thank you for the beautiful day. I had so much fun. You are the BEST. Many hugs and so much love, Sherry
