Dairy Shack

This is a favorite summer hangout for my granddaughters!  Doodlebug counts down the days until they finally open for the summer!  She lives very near so she can hear them calling out orders on the loud speaker.  She thinks she should eat there at least once daily!  The last day of the season is always a sad day.

For this page I used the Ice Cream Kids pattern collection to make the shake cup.
I used several scraps from a couple of summer themed Echo Park paper packs.   
I apologize for the photo on this one.  I had a hard time getting a good one of this page.  Not sure if it was all the colors or patterns but it just was not photographing well.

All Summer Long

Here's a new page I finished.
I used the Down by the Creek pattern collection. The papers are from Cosmo Cricket Summer Love collection.  It's probably an older collection because I found it at Tuesday Morning.  I'm wishing I would have purchased two of them because it's a fun collection to work with.
Thanks for stopping by today!  I'm going to try to keep up with my blog better!

Finally Home Again!

My hubby & I have been traveling since May!  We are finally home & have no plans to go anywhere anytime soon.  I'm sure going to miss seeing our grands but it's so nice to be home.
I plan on getting back to blogging!
So, to start things off I will share a few layouts I've recently posted on our fanpage.

The long drive home...

My hubby & I have been gone for 3 weeks spending time with our daughter & her family.  They welcomed a new baby girl into their family on May 29th.  It was so great to be able to spend time with the new little one & her big sister.
We finally came home this week.  Big sister surprised us & came home with us.  We had a very long drive home!
Here's how the trip went...
We got all packed up and found a little space for Doodlebug & we were off.


 Doodlebug helped us find the way with her very own map!
 It's a very long drive home!  Doodlebug tells us that she has lots of "up downs" near her house & that she always knows when she is almost to Grandpa & Grandma's because there are no more "up downs"
 We knew it would have to happen!  What would a summer road trip
 be without road construction?
 Time for a nap :)
 Here's where the fun starts!  I got online & checked the roads before we headed home.  I saw that the road was now open so we decided on this route home.  It's a beautiful drive along the river.  From here our drive should be about 30 minutes, lol!  Just last week there was flood water all around this area.
 There are still sandbags across the road and lots of water pumping but the road was open, lol!
 A little ways down the road we started seeing lots more water and flooded houses but the road was still open, lol.
 Detour #1 of many!
 Yet another detour but we still thought we might make it home.
 Uh'oh, now it's getting really serious!  We ended up on a back road up & over the river bluff.  Yep, the road was closed!
 Oh'no, another detour!  So close to home but so far away.  No way we were making it through this road.  Now is when the fun starts.  We now had to drive on tiny blacktop road and then a gravel road.  Did I mention we have been driving for over and hour now from when I said we are 30 minutes from home?

Finally after another 1 1/2 hours and about a
100 deer running out of in front of us, we made it home! 

Introducing...

Our newest grandbaby!  She was born on May 29th & weighed 7 pounds 9 ounces, she is absolutely perfect!
I'll be referring to this one as Jellybean when I'm posting online.
