A quick recap to catch up

Did you know...paper crafting can wear you out?  Actually I think it is more like my sister in law Marlene.  She is an energizer bunny.  I couldn't get her to slow down, even for my sake.  Needless to say, we had a fabulous time and each of us came away with some great projects.  These don't include the Christmas cards and neighbor gifts that didn't quite get finished, but there are enough pieces to have an excellent start.

We painted these blocks, and papered them, mod podged them, numbered them, labeled the bottom block and then mod podged them again.  Does anyone know which way the apostrophe is supposed to go?  One of the designer papers we used had Christmas trees all over it.  Silly me put the 9/6 numbers on that particular paper.  So when you turned the number one way it was right side up, then the other way all my Christmas trees were upside down.  BOO!  I ended up scraping paper off and redoing that side. Marlene and I had a good laugh.

I covered wooden letters with autumn paper and embelished with cute rub-ons, ribbons, and buttons.  I need to add a few more emblishments, but I ran out of creative juice.

This project was the most difficult to photograph, is too dark without using a flash.  The flash creates shadows.  You can sort of see what it is, but I love it.  "Welcome family and friends"

I think my most favorite day was the day we drove to Manti to go to the temple.  It was such a beautiful day.  The temple workers were so nice to us and we ran up and down the hallways trying to figure out where we needed to go.  We were treated so good.  The temple artwork and murals are amazing.  I loved being with my Mom and Marlene.  Ralph was unable to go with us because of a business meeting.  I missed him.  We stopped on our way out of town at Freds sports grill.  I was so hungry and that burger was sooo good.  Bacon, cheese, beef, tomato, pickles.  YUM!  The fries and soft drink were icing on the cake (so to speak)
Well, we had a great time, Smiley from
We had great food, and the company could not have been better.  I think this should become an annual event.

Well the dog is farting - so it is time to go for a walk.  Have a great day! Ta Ta for now.
