*I seriously COULD NOT wait to scrap these photos!!* :):):):):):):):):):):)

Hi all....

Today the latest challenge is up at FAVE THINGS...and this time we want to know your FAVE FEATURE! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)  this can be taken in sooooooo many different ways!!  Do you love your nose? Your eyebrows? Your hands? Your painted toenails? OR... is it something about your kid(s) that is your FAVE? Or what feature about your pet do you love? Whatever the feature is ... we wanna see it!!! :):):):):):):)

Here is my take on it... My Brookie's SMILE!! I titled this "Melts My Heart!".. cuz her SMILE does just that to me! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

I thought this quote was PERFECT for a layout about Brookie! Remind us girls to always LOVE OURSELVES!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Everything on here is from including the NEWEST PRIMA FLOWERS!! YUMMY! :):):):):):):):):):):) And get ready for more of these photos of Brookie... we had them taken earlier this month and picked them up on Saturday...and I LOVE EVERY ONE OF THEM!!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And our prize this time for FAVE THINGS is the Bella Blvd. collection "Lovey Dovey" donated by our team member Chris! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And fellow team member Diana is giving away a second prize to the a person that plays along with FAVE FEATURE!!! Leave her a comment when you play along on HER BLOG and she will choose a winner from that group!!! Thanks Diana!! That is AWESOME! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And and and I wanted to share our NEW couches that we just paid for on Saturday for our new home!! (these photos were taken at the furniture store... so please forgive the darkness of them...hard to photo in the store! lol!) :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Soooooo its the couches...and not all the stuff on the walls... LOL!! I am more of a picture wall hanging girl... not art! LOL!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Ohhhhhhh and one last thing... as I have mentioned before... Arizona is MORE HOT than it isn't... well... look at this sky we had yesterday......

Beautiful, right??? Well... you aren't gonna believe this... it was ACTUALLY only 41 degrees at 1 o'clock in the afternoon when I took these!!! YEP... only 41 degrees at 1 o'clock!!

*Forever My Girl,,,,Forever My Guy* :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Hi all....

Thanks for all the well wishes for the dentist... didn't have any work done yesterday... as sadly, my own fault, I let the tooth go for too long, and it now has a slight infection...and I have to be on antibiotics till Tuesday when we re-visit my two options... I won't go into what those are... as I get grossed out by the littlest things... so I don't want anyone else to get grossed out either by me talking about!  :):):):):)

Wanted to share a layout I made for BlueMoon's Blog!!! I had soooooooooooooo much fun using Bo Bunny this month for! :):):):):):):):):):):)

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

*God bless the Broken Road, cuz it Led Me Straight to You!* :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Hi all......

Today is Thursday, which means its time for another Sketchy Thursdays! YAYYYYYY! I love love love all the sketches that Diana and Heidi create...and here is this weeks...... :)

And here is my take on it... I used the February kit from Artful Delight and my title is..."God Bless the Broken Road, cuz it led me Straight to You!" ... which was our wedding song...and its by Rascal Flatts! :):):):):):):) Brian and I both came from broken marriages and so this song was perfect for our wedding day! :):):):):):):):):):):):) Ohhhhhhh and really... check out Artful Delight's kits... they are sooooooooo amazing! I have been so impressed with the amount of cards and layouts I have made with this kit! :):):):):):):):):):):):)

And our sponsor this week is!!!
Look at this prize you could win!!! WOOOOOO HOOOOOOO! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And Brian wanted to thank everyone for the Birthday wishes... he really loved reading all the comments! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

***In other news... I don't know if I will be around a lot tonight or not....I have to head to the dentist after work today to get a tooth worked on... soooooo since Julie has a low tolerance for pain... lol... I don't know how I will feel later...when it rains it pours around here... lol!**** :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Thanks soooooooooo much for stopping by... I truly appreciate it! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
