I have to really apologize for not being more active!
Whoever said there was more time to scrap in the Summer was sooo wrong!!
I feel awful that I haven't posted anything in two weeks, but not to fear,I finally got into my craft room last night.  So what have I been doing since I last posted? Well, I ask that question all the time!!! But it looks like we made a quick trip to the beach, Sarah has been in 4 different horse shows, and we've been moving along with our renovations, interviewing builders, and I have been at Meals on Wheels full time being a sub for some of the managers that have been taking vacation time!  I am hoping to spend more time in my room in the days to come.  But there is another round of vacations happening at Meals, and Fair is next week for my 4-H'er, so we'll have to plan accordingly! Here's what I was able to do last night!  This was a photo from Spring Break this year...Hope everyone has a great week!

Mojo Monday #351

Hi friends.  Sorry it's been so quiet in my neck of the woods!  Whoever said summer gave us more time in our craft rooms has not spent a day in m y house!!! Sarah's been sick with a sinus infection, and while she didn't feel well enough to show, she wanted to get and help the younger kids that were showing.  And last night I took Sarah and 6 of her friends to see Katy Perry!!   I did however get a few hours of crafting  in yesterday.  And was able to create this card for mojo Monday.  I've followed their blog for a long time, and s is the first chance I've gotten to play!  This was a thank you card I did for a 'frnd of mine that helped me plan and cook for the MEALS on wheels volunteer luncheon that we had yesterday!  55 people attended, and it was worth all the work!  And I have to say, my husband Jay was even surprised to learn that I drove 219 hours last year for Meals.  (I think he still thinks I sit on the couch all day and eat bones bins!!!)  Here's the mono sketch and my card.  Hope you like it!  Have a great weekend!  Sarah has another show this weekend, and it's all day Saturday and Sunday so am hoping maybe I'll get back to my room Sunday night!

monochromatic Color Challenge

Sorry I didn't post more pictures from our fantabulous trip to Hawaii.
but got caught up with all kinds of activities on the trip and spending time
with family.  You'll see them soon enough when I muster up the nerve
to do an 8x8 scrapbook of the trip.   I did however get a chance
to be in my room and managed to get a challenge done for
Scrap Your Stash Challenge.  The mid month challenge was to go 
monochromatic in the color scheme and to use five 
embellishments.  I went red with the color scheme.  And used
six beads around my title.  A simple challenge  to get my creative 
juices flowing again!  Hope you enjoy!  More to come 
later in the week. (I hope!)  It's a crazy horse show 
weekend for Sarah, but really want to get more done in my craft room!

Pearl Harbour

Yesterday, we flew over to Pearl Harbour and spent the day touring the USS Arizona, the USS Missouri and the flight museum.  It was a fun filled day, with lots of time to reflect and really feel what happened that day when the Japenese made a surprise attack on the Americans.  Here are a few pictures from our adventure.  Next up a luau tomorrow and ATV'ing on Saturday.  Alpha

Today we went to the Southeast part of the Big Island and we tried surfing.
Ever since Sarah read Bethany Hamiliton's autobiography
a few years ago for school, she has always wanted to try.  And so today we did!
She had a fabulous time.  The pictures don't do it justice. A second lesson will be held on
Thursday.  I think ill go so I can take the pictures, and not Jay!!!! We also had some family photo's taken.  Ill upload those as soon as they come in.  Have a great day!  ALOHA!
