Better Late Than Never

On MLK Day we went to the Garlocks for yummy navajo tacos, peach cobbler, and smores on the bonfire in the backyard. They also had a huge pile of leaves to play in and a brand new John Deere Truck. It was SO much fun, we love hanging with the Garlocks!!!

The Reason For My Absence....

I know,I know...I haven't posted anything significant in over 2 weeks. It's not that I have been slacking, I have found, not a new love, but an equally exciting way to spend my time. First I was creating new templates, but I quickly ran out of paper. So I found something else to keep my creativity going....digital scrapbooking. IT 'S SO GREAT!! I have always wanted to scrapbook...I bought a bunch of stuff a couple of years ago, but it just got too expensive. There is so much free stuff on the internet to do it digitally and it's so much fun, I wish I would have found it sooner. If anyone else is interested in doing this, let me know, I can hook you up! Check out the blog headers and layouts I have done so far...

My Blogger Templates

Hey!!! So I was pretty bored the other day and I decided to start messing around with my blog template. I found it to be quite fun and it really got my creative juices flowing. I made like 10 in a row and now I just can't stop!! I would love to share them, but the paper I am using is free and there is a bunch of mumbo jumbo saying that I can only use them for personal use, blah, blah, blah... But if you would like I could tell you where to get the paper and how to edit your HTML. Its really quite easy once you get the hang of it. Hopefully soon I will be able to find some cute paper that I can share. Anyway....check them out and let me know what ya think:) They are located on the side bar under Templates I've Made.
