Relax

I wanted to get this posted this morning, but I had to get to work and didn't want to make the posting too quick!  This is a sketch from Liz Qualman for the Sketch Crazy challenge over at sketches4all.  I loved the unique flair to this sketch, and the fact that it could easily be used for a card.

Of all the pictures I have taken over the years, I think this is in my favorite top ten.  Fishing is so realxing for Jerry, and it is a part of who he is.  This picture speaks that in volumes!

I have used Bo Bunny paper, flowers, and stickers for this LO.  I used a few Slice Design  cards - Travel USA for the state, Fall/Back to School for the leaves, and Basics 1 for the circles.  (Have I told you that I love my Slice?!)  The tag coming out from behind the photo is from Tattered Angels.  I misted it with Tuscan Sun and Coffee Shop glimmer mists to help it match the LO.

I have to toot!  I won the June challenge for my "Journey" layout over at Let's Scrap.  What fun!!  To see the LO, click here.

I have to wish my younger sister, Patti, a very happy birthday today!!  We are going to get to see them next weekend when we camp at the place where they have their RV.  I am always so excited to see a sister, and this is especially fun because I get to give her her birthday giftie when I see her.  I can't show you until after next weekend!  We also get to watch our nephews play baseball.  What would we do without that sport?

We are going boating up the Mississippi tomorrow with my MIL and Shane.  We are looking forward to the view on that part of the river!  I hope you have fun things planned for your 4th of July weekend!!

Okay, now it's time to stop talking!  Jerry is out on the deck frying sunfish, crappie, and homemade onion rings for supper.  Oh, and of course, I requested my favorite - deep fried pickles!!  Have a great weekend!
