CathyK Designs

Whew! The last couple of weeks have just flew by!! We have been so busy here in the holler that I went for several days and did not even have my computer on, and let me tell you, that has only happened in the case of power outages for quite some time!

Our little goldfish pond that my son Matthew dug out for me last summer got damaged and all the water leaked out. We worked for several hours trying to repair it but finally decided it was a lost cause. Since, it involved so much upkeep and we could not get the summer algae growth under control through means we could financially afford we chose to abandon that project. We took the fish to Matthew for his pond, and filled the pond in. We had some really good dirt down behind the garage so we dug it up, filled in the pond and planted flowers. We bought a crepe myrtle tree and a few perennials, and moved the peonies there to create what will next year grow to be quite a beautiful little garden....hopefully!

I hope all of you enjoyed a great 4th of July holiday. It poured rain here all weekend so we had no fireworks but we did go to one of my brothers home for a nice little barbecue. After all the work we had been doing around here, it was nice to get out of the house for even those few hours. It has been equally nice, to power the ole pc back up and do a little scrappin! A new month brings new challenges to all of the forums and I always look forward to that!

Cathy Krenek is sponsoring the July Template Challenge, and I went right to work on using her fun template. I used her new her new STARS AND STRIPES page kit with the coordinating items, STARS AND STRIPES ALPHAS BUNDLE and the FRAME IT! STARRY METAL. These were available at SBE this past weekend for the DoorBusters Sale but don't worry, they will return to the SBE store soon!

The July Template is a lot of fun with all the circles and upon completion of the challenge you will not only have a unique scrapbook page but you will receive a very nice posting bonus as well! The Splash AddOn posting bonus can be used to create cute pages all on its own but used with the new Splash page kit which will be released at SBE on Sunday July 12th, you will be ready for all those summer swim photos! I used the AddOn posting bonus to create you an 8x10 quick page to help get you get those photos done. Enjoy!
