Weekend Snap Shots

I thought I'd share a few more pictures from this past week.  I don't think we've ever had a nicer week for spring break as evidenced by Jonathon (by the way we really do feed him) running around without a shirt on!  Jonathon, Collin & Emma were having fun playing frisbee monkey in the middle.  You should have seen the joy on Collin's face when he would catch the frisbee.  And then...it ended up in the tree. They were smart and used a broom and a good old fashion shake of the tree to get it out.  A perfect Friday night.


I also have a card to share for the current Embellish Jeweled Color Challenge.  When I saw the pattern on these sweet little shoes, I immediately thought of my PTI Mehndi Medallion impression plate.  I spritzed a bit of blue on the white panel, added the banner, a sweet little bow and of course a few jewels. In real life you can tell the difference between the spray mist and the gems a bit better!

  16. That medallion is aboslutely stunning, Lynn! And I love the way you've blinged it up!

    Ezekiel was running around without his shirt on, too, last week. The only problem is that Adina thinks she should, too. LOL! I don't mind... YET! But Daddy isn't too fond of it ;). This week, it's been much cooler, though. I'm sure you got a little taste of that, while you were visiting/working.
