great weekend!

we had such a great time at our little 'scrapbook getaway'. the house was amazing...right on the water. and the owners NEVER even stay there. crazy. gorgeous home and certainly not what one would think of when they hear 'lake house'.

anywho, didn't get too many pics so maybe check here to see what my friend posts. she got way more than i did.

here is one of the view from the back of the house. the only thing was the wind!!! holy cow! it was super-duper windy and it was really pretty crazy. non-stop, heavy winds. the whole weekend.

this is my favorite layout from this weekend. and i think my first ever layout of owen? poor kid. maybe not. i might have done a few before.

i have quite a few more to post, but for now i'm going to post the challenge layouts i did.

these are for the SYC challenge. you had to use up old letter stickers. and boy, did i use up some old letter stickers! (i still have more though.) it sure felt good to peel those puppies off and actually use them. i think i saw the idea for the 'background' letters in ck or sbook etc. can't remember.
this last one is for the Summer Lovin' Challenge at Noel Mignon Scrapbooks.
i really want to try to figure out the text on my posts. it gets all ganked when i add photos. i 've had a bit of a response to this and might have to enlist some hubby help. gotta get to work on that for today as well.

have a good one!
