Layout - She is Home

She Is Home - With Nature

***************





I'm finally sharing a layout made with the assistance of my new Cricut Expression...

Believe me, it's getting lots of usage.. or shall we say, practice! I now have a folder full of all sorts of fun diecuts that Sami and I have been making...

Latest News from the Ranch:
Phew! I am dragging my knuckles over here! It's Sunday, 5:45 pm.. And I am still in my jammies... Thank goodness for rainy days following a hectic 'market run'!

Three nights in a row I did not get home until about 10:30 pm...and then to bed at 11 pm. And, it is finally showing.

It's been raining for days! Yep. At the markets, too.

My Canopy is in the garage, waiting for some sunshine so it can dry out!

And, last night I taught a scrap altered class (Dad Clock)... in addition to the Crop Til You Drop (I lasted until 10pm)...

So, tonight is lamb stew, and some good mindless TV!

Thanks for the visit!
Hope you have sunshine!!

Hi, Andi! Lovely layout! Cute pic of Sami and the lambs, too! I really like the DesignBlock Tree you sneaked in as tone-on-tone in the corner. I like the trees, the butterflies, and the pretty die-cut "Home" title! :-)

I've just stayed up waaaay too late cruising your blog...I love your style...witty! I looked for an e-mail but didn't find one. I cruised your blog with great interest because although our circumstances are different, I think you (like me) were once a city girl. I’m formerly from Chicago (a life time ago) and now on the east coast (D.C.) and moving to Laramie, Wyoming where my husband will teach at the law school. I'm fascinated how you seem to relish all things…ranch, open country, small town and how you seem to really thrive and love it. I’m not sure how that comes across and I certainly don’t mean any disrespect…I find it soothing. I find myself getting nervous, especially after a conversation I had this evening with a transplant to Laramie who is moving back home, away from Laramie and about the harsh winters and road closings and hunkering down, etc., etc., etc. Anyway, not sure why I wrote all that, except to say that in some way I find your blog and stories comforting. So, thanks for that! I'll be back for more...

Love this one. Very sweet. Hope you've made it thru the week unscathed and with some sunshine. We certainly have some to spare here. I'll pack some up and send it.
