Scrapstreet, Gatlinburg & Scrapbooking!


Guess where I have been??? Here is a hint...

On a scrappy subject, I have a layout published in Scrapstreet this month! It is called Happy Family and can be found in the Scrap-a-Little article on Blog Bay. Soooooooo excited to be in this fantastic magazine again!


The layout, Happy Family, is from our first trip to Gatlinburg this summer...little did we know then that we would end up going THREE times! We just got back again yesterday. This weekend Jason and the boys went to the big UT-Oregon game while the girls and I lounged around the MOST AMAZING cabin. Although there was lots of rain, and lots of thunder and lightning, we had a very relaxing and lovely weekend getaway.
Here is the trip in pictures:
THE cabin. This shot really does not do it justice but baby bear looks so cute strolling down the street...
The boys hung out in the hot tub...weather is rolling in behind them...
Breathtaking views...
We collected lots of treasure for art projects to be...

Had to head back to Walden Creek Stables for another family horseback ride:)))



I really should have named this boy Rocky...he would have been happy tossing rocks into this tiny little stream all day long.


UT vs. Oregon

And finally the BIG GAME! It rained all day long but cleared up just in time for the game...or so we thought. The game was delayed in the middle of the first quarter for lightning...BIG lightning and BIG rain. The boys were evacuated with the other ten million fans to the dungeon under the field. There they had to stand squashed up against one another for over an hour. I am so sorry I missed out on going to the game! Television is wonderful, I watched with the girls all cozy and snug in the little cabin on the hill;)
But in the end, it was all worth the effort and the patience. Our DUCKS smashed'm!


I also have an ENTIRE page of projects in this quarter's Scrapbooking magazine published by Hobby Lobby stores. So exciting!!!


And finally, Happy Birthday Dad, I love you.
