The weather here in the Southern California desert is just glorious!!  It is cool and a little windy!  Earl has been working on the car all day.  (Our GOOD car.)  I should explain, our GOOD car is a 1994 GMC Jimmy!  It has almost 100,000 miles on it.  Our other car is a 1991 Chevy Metro that has almost 200,000 miles on it!!  THAT is the car we drive all the time around town.  He used it for many years as his car-pool car.  It is his baby.  He loves that car!!  The Jimmy escorts us to church once every 6 months or so, and carries us on vacations, and any other trips we go on.  Every once in awhile, like now, it just needs some TLC, and some normal upkeep to keep it running well when we do chose to use the car!!

While he's been working on the car, I've spent the day doing some Creative Team layouts.  I can share two of them with you today and one I did yesterday.  The rest of them will have to wait until the kit is released!  :)  If CT work has a downside, it's just that.  You can't post the layouts you've labored over until the kit is released!  Sometimes by the time the kit hits the market, I forget how excited I was about the kit because I've been working on other ones in the meantime.

I'll start out with the layout I posted yesterday.  It was made with a charity kit to benefit a little girl in the Philippines that needs surgery.  Mandy King was one of the designers that volunteered to work on this kit!  It is called Bella Grace, and can be found here: Bella Grace
The layout is of my granddaughter Sarah.  She's such a sweetie!!  She'll be four in October.  Time flies so fast!!
I used a kit by Pebbles and Ruby Lane called Summers End for the next two layouts.  The first one is called Pumpkin Time.  You can find this cute kit here:  Summer's End.  I also used a template by Jen Maddocks!  She supplied the template for the Added inspiration challenge at  This is a layout of Abby a few years ago when we visited a pumpkin patch close to where they lived.  We stopped in after church that morning and let Abby pick out a pumpkin.  Jonah and Noah are the focus of the other layout with this kit.  For this one, I used a template from Bella Gypsy.  Did I say I love templates??
 That is all I have to share today--hopefully, I'll be back soon!  Thanks so much for stopping by!!
