Not a card in sight . . .

I wish I could say that I'm been crafty but I am needing to make decisions on the laundry room remodel so I've been spending lots of time looking for inspiration. I would LOVE to know what you think is essential. I think I've decided to go with front load machines so I can put a counter top over them.

I love the counter tops over the machines.

Would you ever actual use the ironing board in the laudry room?

Gorgeous! Don't think I need this many machines! :)

Like the simple design.

These are the color options available for the Electrolux Front Load machines. Can you believe that black isn't an option??? What would you choose?

If you have any ideas that you want to send my way I would love to have them.

Cowtown Mission

Won't be much crafty time this week as I begin an  "in town" mission trip. The 2nd Annual Cowtown Mission begins Sunday evening. It is over 100 youth and adult volunteers that will work on 16 homes in our community. There are roofs to repair, houses to paint, flooring to replace, and clean up galore. 

I'm so excited about "my house." It just happens to be the family home of some of the kids we mentor through Kids Hope USA. We would appreciate your prayers and thoughts as we work in 100 degree temperatures.

Thought I would leave you with one picture taken by a friend at our local Sonic last week. You better believe we live in TEXAS!!! Wonder if they got the Route 44?

I hope you have a wonderful week wherever you are!!!

#1 Dad

Can you believe Father's Day is almost here? Can you believe another year is half OVER???? OK I digress. The Papertrey Peeps June challenge issued by Cammie is to create a masculine project for the special men in our lives.

I have struggled to use the Get to the Point set but combined with the Framed sentiments I will use it much more. I really like using the Ad Sense die and the Limitless Layers dies together.Can you see the woodgrain impression plate detail?

I hope you get to spend time with the special men in your life this weekend.

Just a note friend

Terri issued a challenge on the Papertrey Peeps blog for May that called for using flowers. Yes, I know May --  and now it is June. I'm a little behind. The library card is really the perfect backdrop for images. I like the feeling of layers that it gives.

I also think that the scale of the Botanical Silhouettes and Larger than Life work so well together You could change the sentiment on this layout for so many occasions. I see a thinking of you happening in the near future.

HaPPy BiRthday DAD!

Hi Everyone!!! Hope you are doing well. I feel like I haven't posted in forever. The blogger comment problems took the enthusiasm right out of my sails. You don't realize how "hooked" you are until you can't post!!! Glad it is fixed.

We celebrated my Dad's 76th birthday day Sunday by meeting for dinner at a local favorite called "Babe's". It is an all you can eat chicken and chicken fried steak joint. PTI's Ad Sense and Simple Circle's are perfect for a masculine card.

We have started our home remodel project as well. Bob and I spent TWO days getting the kitchen wallpaper down. You can believe me when I say there will be NO MORE wallpaper in our future.

Bye Bye fruity wallpaper and green counter tops!!!! Bye Bye Wall!!!
