My 4th of July weekend didn't turn out like I was expecting. Here is what happened:
Jul 3 Evening People very excited for the fireworks start setting them off around 8pm, which sends my dog into fits and wakes up the baby. I spend the rest of the evening comforting both. No scrapping gets done.
Jul 4 It rains off and on all day! Especially the key times-lunchtime/early afternoon, dinnertime/later afternoon, and at 7pm. Thunder and lightening. I lost power, no scrapping. But hey, no fireworks either!
Jul 5 Evening Sitting down to scrap when the over eager fireworks zealots start setting off their huge stash of fireworks that they didn't get to play with last night. Dog barks, baby wakes, comforting begins, repeat. Ok, seriously, where do these people come from? Of course no scrapping.
But tonight there was scrapping, thank you for your patience while I got to the point. Here is the layout explaining the rain, the few pics were taken during the 2 hours of sun we had all day. Scenic Route Liberty for Memorable Seasons:
This is one more I scrapped just real quick with Cosmo Cricket's Halfway cafe:
The finalists are supposed to hear something tomorrow. I feel lucky in that I made 7 layouts out of the deal, which is a lot more than I had before. And I'm incredibly honored to have been chosen as one of the 12 out the hundreds of people who applied. I do have some news that I can't tell yet, hopefully soon. I can't keep a secret to save my life, just as my better half.
And questions. I didn't forget.
Jen asked "How does a hokie become a pug?" Only after many years of marriage does that happen! I'm impressed that you got vt=hokie. Most people think I'm from Vermont, or that I'm a vet. vtpuggirl = these are a few of my favorite things.
