Hello my crafty friends, I hope that you are off to a great start to your Monday. We had a full and very busy weekend, one that left me a little out of commission come Sunday. Not sure what is up with my back, but I sat with the heating pad on it most of Sunday. I felt it starting on Saturday but our granddaughter was here and she was busy thus keeping grandma busy too. lol I could feel it in my left kidney first and around my lower back. Sure enough, I was having problems moving when I got up on Sunday. Hoping today will be a better day so I can get some things done that wasn't done over the weekend. Cause I set aside those days for the granddaughter and boy did she have lots of fun! We ran errands on Friday, then came home and made supper. Watched the movie Frozen and had ice cream. Got in the hot tub and then showered and got her into bed. That lasted for about 30 seconds before she was back out and wanted grandma to lay with her so I did. She was out fast! Then at 3:30 am she woke up to find that grandma wasn't in bed with her any more and came into our bedroom taping me and saying "come on". So I went with her and finished out the night in bed with her. lol Saturday was busy, busy, busy. We made crumb cake first thing in the morning. Then Papaw made breakfast. After cleaning up from that we went outside. We blew bubbles, drew with chalk, got in the pool, got in the hot tub, went up to the farm a dozen or more times, went for 4 wheeler rides, rode in the combine to harvest the wheat, watch the guys bale and unload some straw and then came home to make supper. Oh and we made another crumb cake, one for her to take home and one for Papaw and UB (Uncle Bret). After snack of crumb cake, and that was holding her off as long as I could, she went home with her sister, mommy and daddy. Papaw and Grandma was two tired puppies but for different reasons. lol But it was a good tired, now if only the back would hold up longer! I guess I will be discussing that with the doc on Tues.
I guess I'd better get onto the reason for this post!! It is Monday and you know that it is time BBTB2 challenge. I wasn't really up for a challenge since it was a busy weekend and I didn't get anything done during the week. But I did have a project that I did but had never been blogged about and some of it fit the challenge, so even though I didn't do this new, it has never been seen before. I started a little 6 x 6 album for one of our granddaughters. Which one, I wasn't sure, but think now it will go to our newest granddaughter. It's nothing fancy, just plain really, but I think it is kinda cute. I was doing all the "firsts"-first outing, first Halloween, first Christmas, etc..So on the Halloween page I used a dog from Paper Pups Cricut Cart and since our sweet design team Sharon gave us the challenge of using a dog on a project this worked!! Her challenge was "Dog Days of Summer", to use a dog on a project. Mine of course is a double page spread. Like I said nothing fancy, really just plain as there isn't much room on a 6 x 6 page. I also used Doodlecharms for the spiders. The BBTB2 DT has lots of inspiration for you so go have a look see and then link up your dog projects with us! As always thanks for stopping by to visit for a spell and for listening to me ramble on! I tend to do that I know, but when it comes to the grands, I can't help it. I also wanted to tell you how much I appreciate all the support and awesome comments you all always leave me. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would have even one follower, must less all the ones I have! So thank you for all your support!!! Crafty hugs, Brenda
