Happy Birthday, Matt

Happy Birthday to my dh!! I made this birthday card for him using the Cosmo Cricket Dutch Girl papers, and following my fellow DT member over at 2SS, Cindy's July Card Challenge.

We promised each other we would keep our birthdays low-key this year, as we are planning another trip to WDW for Sept.

I made him a cake for tonight, and have to go and wrap his presents...Any ideas on what to make for dinner tonight in 94 degree weather?! I'm thinkin' reservations!! LOL

Time to get crack-a-lackin'!

My friend Rachael over at IL2C has issued a challenge for all the girls to update their blogs...Yes, I am guilty as charged!! It's been a while since I've logged into my blogger account...

I am just back from a weekend trip to see my sister Jeanne's new beach house in Rhode Island...It is so fabulous (and I am SO jealous!). While her house isn't beach front property, she is literally a walk down the street to the beach...See the picture? Her house is HUGE!!!

We were blessed with a beautiful day on Friday, and spent the afternoon basking in the sun, and doing a little beachcombing...The waves were so friggin' fabulous, and I was stunned as I thought the water would be much calmer!! I LOVE those rockin' rollin' waves!!! There were tons of surfer-dudes out there riding the waves, too...it was a perfect day :)

On a crafty note, I am hosting the scraplift challenge at 2SS, and this month I challenged our members to lift from a manufacturer's website (ie: Cherry Arte, Cosmo Cricket, Crate Paper, etc...). There are tons of talented ladies (and gents) who display their creativity for all of us to see, I thought maybe we could recognize their genius, give them kudos!!!, and lift their work....

Here is the layout I lifted from Sheri Reguly whose a member of the DT at CherryArte.

Thanks so much to Sheri for her wonderfully inspiring work!!

And here is my lift, "99.44% Pure":

If you'd like to play along with this challenge, email me a picture (or link) of the lifted mfg's lo, and your lo, and I will put your name in a hat for a RAK at the end of the month...

send your pics to edithturk@sbcglobal.net by July 28th...

I will post your pics on my blog :)
