Our daughter, Melissa came by this morning and brought this incredible (we think) drawing by TJ. Of course Ashton would not be still long enough for him to do this so he did it by looking at Ashton's first "portrait" photo, taken at WalMart. TJ grew up with a love of drawing and we usually got him art supplies for Christmas when he got too big for toys. Anyway, just wanted to share this with you all. How great that Miss Carol just finished the "Baby Boy Jasper" kit.

I have no idea where I was trying to go with this picture...but I don't think I quite got to my destination! LOL. I took this pic yesterday morning and thought it was quite pretty so I decided last night to try to make a scrap page with it. I tried and I tried and I tried, but nothing seemed to look like I wanted it to. So after much altering, adding embellishments, adding effects, blending and deleting all of the aforementioned things, I just gave up and this is the end result.
The background is from CJSCreations "Fall Splendor" kit.
It's the same game every fall.. my poor Rhett fights with the many trees we have, to keep the falling leaves out of his precious lawn. He absolutely cannot stand for the lawn to be covered in leaves! He gets out the mower and rides around the yard for hours (we have a big yard) cutting up the leaves so that they make mulch for his precious lawn. He has done this four times already in the past two weeks. Did it today...lawn looked very nice when he finished... late this evening we got rain and wind....ya know what that means?? THE LEAVES WIN!

Of course we think this is the cutest little pumpkin in the patch! This is our precious Ashton who, although he didn't get to go out on trick or treat night, was still dressed for the occasion. He has another costume also (a little cow) but will save that one for another day. He is up to 1o 1/2 pounds now, which doesn't sound like a lot most people, but that calculates to 8 pounds gained in a little over4 months. Still has to wear his heart monitor, but the doctors say they may be able to take it off next month. We praise God daily for our little blessing.
The background is from Fall Splendor kit by CJS and the "frame" is from the new "Flings and Things". I love it Miss Carol...thank you so much for sharing your wonderful talent with us.

Seems that Miss Carol isn't the only "Southern WannaBe". This lovely couple were seen checkin' out plantations for sale in nearby Gatlinburg, TN. I sure hope they find one. Only thing is, Miss Gerri...it takes more than an occasional "y'all" and a few Mint Juleps to make you a true southerner. One thing ya gotta learn is southern spellin' and language. You becomes ya, sometimes two words become one...as in woulda, coulda, shoulda, didya (as in didya have fun in TN) also one very important thing is most words don't ever end in g, as in shoppin', droppin', drinkin', dancin'. Rhett and I will be glad to give y'all lessons iffin ya think y'all would be intrested in learnin' southern speak. Y'all come back real soon now, ya hear?
