Had fun creating this collage yesterday, I used a patterned scrapbook page for the background. I cut it to the proper size, then painted it and stamped over it before cutting and pasting the images on.

Looking forward to a laid-back 4th of July weekend! Alyssa is coming up to spend a few days! Looking forward to it and hanging out with her. We can usually see fireworks down in the mountains....our own little show! Hope you all have a "blast" of a weekend, heee hee, I'll see you all soon!!

In case you can't see the journaling well enough to read it, I tell a story about my husband bringing me home some Hollytone Fertilizer. He knew that I would be using it the next day, so he just left it out on the deck for me. The next morning, we saw that some animal had torn into it and it was all over the deck. We hoped that it didn't eat any of it....but no telling! I told my sister Molly about it, and she said "Well, it's either dead or REALLY big!!!" I could just visualize walking outside one day and meeting up with a giant rabbit, raccoon or squirrel! You know that if I had been out there trying to open the bag, I would have had to drop what I was doing, come in and get a knife or pair of scissors to open it! Story of my life! Have a nice day, and thanks for stopping by!

Me, Myself & I

Glasses and dress- Norma Frances
Cat face and circles- Becky F
Black and white floral border- neefer
Fairy is from the one in my yard
all the rest of the images were from magazines and my stash
New ART finally!! I had so much fun with this one last night! Couldn't watch TV anyhow, because it was storming too bad. Perfect collaging weather! The background was a combo of acrylic purple and pinks with white sponged on paint. I didn't like it at first, but added some circles with hi lite pens and Copics, and ended up liking it after I added all the doodles. I love opaque pens! Need some new ones though....and just new markers in general! The fairy in the collage is from a picture I took of her in my yard. There was an accident of some sort, not long after I got her, probably from high winds or an animal, and somehow she was knocked over, and sadly she lost her wing....I still have it....may try to repair her one day, but that is why on the left side of the picture it's cut off. Poor sweet girl.....I drew her a transparent wing, do you see it?
Hope you all have a good weekend and have fun celebrating Father's Day! We are going to a party in honor of a dear neighbor who is moving for his job, on Saturday. Looking forward to seeing all the neighbors and hanging out. Friday, we will take Dad and Carolyn out to dinner for Fathers Day, Sunday the girls and families are coming over to see Daddy! Gonna be a busy but fun weekend. See y'all later!

I spent the morning out on the back porch, drinking my coffee and taking pictures! This little guy happened to be on the table, just waiting for me to take his picture!

I'm still mad at them for climbing my feeder pole, but how can I be mad at them long, look how cute! Time to grease the pole!!Loved, loved, loved this pretty boy...chirping away...
We've had lots of rabbits visiting this year.
Butterfly weed is blooming now, soon the pink bee balm will be involved!

We've been watching a couple of foxes down in the backyard. I hadn't seen them in a few days, since we mowed. Was excited when I saw them down there this morning sitting in the sun.

The red carpet roses and my purple aster in full bloom, hope you all enjoyed them and hope you all have a perfect day too!
