Mirror Post from Pixel Mischief...my other blog!

Hi Everyone!

In between working, designing and preparing the site for our new **HOT TUB!** I have managed to do some scrapping!

Here is the site for our new tub... today Hank and my nephew, Seth, will install the wiring and it will be all ready - it's being delivered Tuesday!

Ok on to the scrapping... My son Brian and our beloved cat, Noodles

And for some new scrap goodies...

Here is my newest addition at

  • Plain Digital Wrapper
  • - Haunted Labels!

    Here is a little Halloween decor made with the labels - just print, cut out, paste on some old bottles and ~ Voila! Spooky looking eh?

    I also want to thank everyone who had my oldest son, Henry in their thoughts and prayers last week. The surgery went well and he is feeling much better after a week. He'll be on crutches for a while still, and he has to go through several months of physical therapy, and attend his college classes as well. I am so proud of both my boys!

    That's all for now - I am going to make a little something for the
  • Scripture Challenge
  • at PDW, and then I have to do some grocery shopping - enjoy your Sunday!

    These are couple pages from the Family Cookout at my nephew's house last weekend - we all had a great time! I usually have a hard time scrapping with my own kits, but I managed to add a few bits and pieces - hence the blog title!

    This is my nephew's wife and good friend Darcie - isn't she a sweetie!

    Journaling Reads:
    A scene of the dressing room only a few moments before their Aunt Alissa’s wedding. Kiana whirls around while her sister Alayna watches. Both so pretty in their beautiful little gowns; their innocence captured forever in my heart.
    The wedding was just perfect - we hugged - we danced - we ate and drank.
    After the reception we all went to my nephew's house, went swimming, relaxed in the hot tub, and he even lit off some awesome fireworks after dark. So good to hang out with family & friends!

    New Arrival

    After more than 10,000 shots with my Canon Digital 300D, I decided it was time for an upgrade. My older camera is in great shape still, it will be my backup. I have been wanting two cameras for vacation and travel, in order to cut down on lens changes, so here it is...on my doorstop yesterday. woHoo!

    Canon Digital Rebel XTi (400D)

    I'll be playing with this sweetie later today for sure!

    Bad Bad Blogger!

    I have been MIA over 3 months this time! But since I have this blog still, I just wanted to pop in and post some of my favorite vacation photos. We drove down with Hank's new boat, & spent 2 weeks at our home in Missouri, and it still wasn't long enough!

    Hee He Last time I posted it was April and I was leaving then to fly down there for a week! Guess I have no life except for when I travel LOL! Seriously, working full time does not give me much time or anything interesting to blog about.

    We had a wonderful time visiting friends & family. Went fishing, swimming and horseback riding.
    We went out in the boat a lot. Our mobile home is only 1/2 mile from the boat ramp. The lake water was very high from all the rain, so the fishing was not all that great. Plus the water tepmerature was 82 degrees! My DH would like to go next year in April when the fishing is a little better.

    But here he is with a couple bass he caught:

    We had a LOT of visitors to the yard...we saw deer every day! these two fawns finally came out in the open on the last day we were there:

    Here are a couple shots of my nephew Andrew at his 1st Birthday party!

    And some pictures of the beautiful countryside:

    the lake:

    More countryside:

    Anywhooo, signing off for now, I have lots more photos to post, but that's for another time! Have a wonderful evening!
