Welcoming Tyler Home!!

It has been just 1 month since my grandson Tyler William was born weighing just 2lbs 14ozs. I am very happy and relieved to announce that on Tues June 16th he was released from the hospital to come home. He is such a sweet tiny little baby - and oh soo cute!! Here is a couple of my favorite pics from his homecoming...

Mosh Posh June Challenge

Over on Mosh Posh's Blog they posted a challenge to use this cool vintage Delta Airlines Ad as inspiration for a layout or card

I loved the vintage AD and it inspired me to make this layout

I liked the whole layout design of the Ad and used that as inspiration...but I also kept with the same basic semi-muted colors, and I used the formula BLANK + BLANK = BLANK for my title. I hope you like my interpretation - and I used the January Mosh Posh Kit to create my layout - all items are from the kit except the car diecut (october Afternoon) and the Orange Alphas (American Craft Thickers - Chit Chat). You can see the challenge on the Mosh Posh blog

Rainbow Springs Park

Today my darling daughter conned me into taking her and a couple of friends swimming at Rainbow Springs State Park. I didn't really want to go because I have been sick all week with bronchitus and I am suppose to avoid exposure to the sun with the meds I am taking. But I packed up a blanket, a book, and decidied I would relax in the shade for awhile so they could swim. WOW - I am so glad that I went - I have never been there before and frankly did not know that this place existed - and only 20 minutes from home!! Ok enough talking about it - I am going to let my pictures explain it. Just click on a picture to see it fullsize.

Isn't the water pretty??
Yep it is actually a River - but a natural spring fed river - cool clean water!!
Can you say BEAUTIFUL!!
Luckily we did not see any alligators!!
Such a lovely park
This is the main spring - 1000's of gallons of fresh clear water pumps out daily!!

Looking down the river
Across from the swimming area - so blue!!
Majestic old Oak trees
My favorite photo of the day!!
Crazy kids
Along the nature walk they have the most beautiful waterfalls

Just Gorgeous!!!

All I can say is WOW!!!! I never knew such a treasure existed and so close to my home - SWEET!!
