Clean and Simple #85 and some photos!!!

Howdy friends!!!

Life is busy around here....Rebecca started playing Tennis and she has practice twice a week. I started working out again Monday, Wednesday and Fridays and man it's really kickin' my butt, but it feels so awesome doing something again for my big butt...LOL!!! Since I started working out I can sleep like a baby again wahooo!!!

Anyway....don't want to bore you with all my chit chat....I finally had a chance to edit some of the photos from the Stampin' Up event the beginning of the month and some more pictures we took at the wedding. But first I would like to share a card I made with the Clear & Simple Sketch #85.


It's pretty straight forward....I actually flipped the Sketch...and used these colors - Tangerine Tango, Wild Wasabi, Chocolate Chip and Yoyo Yellow. Both Stamp Sets - Butterfly Dreams and Turning A New Leaf are from Papertrey Ink.

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

Okay here are Shelli Gardner. Did I mention she is super sweet and I really enjoyed meeting her in person!!!


Here is LaMuir and I.... she won the Workshop *Opportunity of a Lifetime* with Shelli and she was sweet enough to invite me and share her exciting achievement!!!


Next are some *Ledlow family* pictures we took this weekend at the wedding. It is rare to get us all into one photo...LOL!!!




My goodness our girls look so grown up in these pretty dresses!!! I'm so blessed to have a beautiful family :)!!!  Hope you enjoyed the photos too!?!

Thank you for stopping by!!! 

Hugs ~Silke~
