Beautiful Day!!

Oh, what a Great Day this has been!! My husband and I played hookie from work and had an adventure. We went to a neighboring town for a Wonderful Chinese Dinner and then hit a couple of shops. It was so much fun!! He emailed me at work and said he was game if I was. He didn't have to ask me twice!!  Our work has been very slow lately, so it was easy to take the Afternoon Off!! We had such a great day, we laughed, talked and laughed some more!! It is so nice to be able to share your life with someone who is so easy to talk to and have a great time with!! I am so lucky to have him for my partner in Life!! He is truly my other half!!

I am seeing signs of Fall everywhere, the birds are flocking, the crops are drying and there are even hints of falling leaves. I am hoping for a repeat of last years colorful display. It lasted for several weeks, and is just something I never get tired of seeing!! Especially with a crisp blue sky for the background!! Nature doesn't get any more beautiful than that!!
This is a photo taken by my Husband last Fall.
He sent it to me at work!!!
I told you I was Lucky!!

Tag Swap and Picnik

OOOOOHHH!! I got my Tags from my first tag swap. They are soooo awesome!! I created a page in my Junque Journal using 2 of them. The reason for no post yesterday!! I was busy creating pages for the journal. It was time well spent!! I had a great time playing. I will share some pages soon.

Glad the weekend is finally here! I plan to scrap all day tomorrow, and stay in the air conditioning. Definitely too hot to think about doing much outdoors.

I found a new (to Me) online picture site  It is an awesome place to play!! There are so many tools to use for editing and adding to your photos, all for free!! I will be going there often I am sure. Try it out, like I said it is free. You can upload photos from your computer or from online storage sites. Give it a try...

I made this and am thinking of tweaking it for my blog banner.

No Time For Crafting..

I have had no time for crafting the last few days. So there are no new pages of my Junque Journal. I have however managed to save a few items that I find interesting to incorporate into it!! Today I got a cookie sack from the Subway, because I had lunch there. I also snagged a couple of really cool stamps from the mail at work. One is Seabiscuit, and the other is Kathryn Hepburn in (black and white), a really awesome stamp!! I can't wait to do something with them!! I have the Tim Holtz film strip stamp and will probably incorporate it somehow with the Kathryn Hepburn stamp!! I don't know about the horse stamp yet, but something will come to me I am sure!!
I received my new Pink ATG Gun in the mail today along with extra adhesive rolls. I had pre ordered it from Custom Crops online. I have read mixed reviews about the pink gun, and am hoping it turns out to be a good one. Part of the proceeds from the sale go to the Susan G. Komen foundation, I think that is a good thing.  I also got a set of Alphabet stamps from Hero Arts that I purchased on Ebay. They are pretty nice. They are semi aged I would say, they have purposely missing parts in the letters. I think I will like them a lot for my journaling. Can't wait to use them!! When time permits....HMMMMMM wonder if I would be missed at work tomorrow??????????????

I am waiting for my first tag swap package to arrive! I participated in the August Tag Swap
at The tags are amazing, Stephanie posted a YouTube video on her blog of all the participants tags!! I can't wait!!!

I have been working on a " Junque Journal or Remains Of The Day Journal" as some call it. I have created several pages out of recycled envelopes, everyday scraps and ephemera I have saved. I am really liking it so far!

I posted my first You Tube video this week!! The video is a show and tell of a book I made for my Grandaughter. I was a little nervous, but for a first video I won't beat myself up too much! My YouTube channel is kipperdsnacks.
