Credits: Only one!
Face- Fidgerainbowtree
All the rest of the images came from magazines

Collage is such a cheap hobby! If you are a cutter and paster as I am, you can find images so easily. Kathryn had given me some magazines to look through and when I got done, I had a big stack of pretty images that I couldn't wait to use. The quote is from Maya Angelou. Loved it!
These next couple of pictures were taken last weekend at the Ocoee River, Whitewater Rafting Center. The river was so pretty and we had fun watching the rafters. I snapped this one from the hiking trail that runs along the river. We had never been on that path before, and want to take our bikes next time.
Loved this picture and this tree....
These pictures got out of sequence but...here is Pearl in the water bag again! I had to show you all, she is so funny and always into something!
This picture was taken at a baby shower for our Granddaughter Jessie, and Great-granddaughter, Riley's 3rd Birthday party a couple of weeks ago, the cute little girl on the right is one of Jessie's friends little girl. They both got lots and lots of gifts! A friend made the diaper cake for her on the left, what a great idea! I might have better luck cooking one! Hope you all enjoy your evening, what a perfect day here on the mountain, see you soon!

Whew! Finally grabbed a few minutes to post this collage I made recently, you know you are busy when you find a little time to create the collage, but you haven't had time to "post" the collage!! I was staying with Kathryn for a few days, after she had a trip to the emergency room with horrid stomach pain. They did a CT scan, and told us she had some interesting findings....they said it appears she has an accessory spleen! We were stunned. It's not unheard of, but not real common. I read that it most likely happens in birth at the embryotic stage, when the spleen is forming. Some cells may leak out around it and grow into baby spleens. Later in life they may give no problems at all, or they can become twisted, etc. That is what they think happened, and they didn't believe she would need surgery, but she was in quite a bit of pain last week. She was on pain meds, that made her feel worse. Luckily towards the end of the week she felt much better, and is hoping to return to work this week. I'm so thankful she is better, it is so so hard to see your child hurting, ya know. So I was back home for the weekend, we had a really fun day yesterday at my stepdaughter Cindy's house. It was our great-granddaughter Riley's 3rd birthday, and a shower for Marley, who will be born on Sept. 2ND! Had a great time seeing everyone, and she had enough clothes and presents and diapers to open a store! Yay Jessie!! Now later today, it's back to Kathryn's. I will have dinner at her future in laws, and I really look forward to spending time with them, always a great time. Monday evening I am going to see "THE HELP" with Alyssa, Kathryn, Molly, Megan, Linda & Ashley! We have been really looking forward to it, best book I ever read! Y'all have a day filled with whatever makes you happy! See ya!
