so flipping busy people

Busy canning fiiiinally!
I know right? Only took me ALL week to finally gather some gumption and preserve our harvesting. We got another 13 quarts of tomatoes, and 12 quarts of Bread & Butter pickles. I still need to make some dills.

The August TallyScrapper kit is SO yummy. I have PLENTY left for a couple more layouts.

*off to middle school*
made this for Katelyn to keep track of her thoughts on middle school.
Nine more days and she'll be in sixth grade.
She has 4 Pre AP classes, advanced math, and band.
smart girl.

*starlicious frame ~ Dream*

altered bottlecap *art*

After I took the photo of the bottlecap, I filled it with diamond glaze.. it dried overnight and has a nice shiny surgace.. no chance any of the pretties inside are falling out. I attached a heavy duty magnet to the back, and it now has a home on my fridge!

U rock card for dd, gonna tuck this in her lunchbag the day she goes back to school.

Get your kit before their sold out. Oh yeah, and ONE lucky person will receive in their kit - the Love, Elsie recipe cards FREE when they purchase the August Outdoor Orchard kit.

IN other news, I MADE It to Round3 over @ Treasured. I was surprised to say the least!!! So much talent there!

Challenge requirements:
- Create a ONE or TWO page layout (any size)
Layout must include:
- ric-rac
- at least one photo turn
- chipboard
- as many photos as you want (or none at all)
- must include journaling - long or short as you like but looking for more than just the date here
- journaling or title must include..."If I ruled the world..."

This came out real close to how I wanted it to. I went with a whimsical twist to this challenge, and made the house my, "world of dreams." Dr. Suess was my inspiration for this layout and poem I wrote.

Lift Dr. Suess up for my journaling:

Then turn down the 1st page:

then lift the first two up:

if i ruled the world I would have a skittle tree
and the bees & spiders would not scare me.
there would be no more hunger or violance you see
everyone would have someone and would be filled with glee.
the world would be vibrant & filled w/ bright colors.
all children would have homes w/ loving mothers & fathers.

the sun would shine high when the rain poured down
you wouldn't feel gloomy while the rainbow was around.
we'd have cool things like back in the day -
no need 4 money we'll barter all day.
no need for greed or glutton anymore
and especially no need for no stinkin' war.

and while I'm @ it we'd have cured for aids, cancer, and diabetes.
OH how I dream -
OH if the day came - - where I was named RULER -
if just for one day.
