The Challenge #10 - You Are Amazing!

Did you have a good weekend?  I think those are the two busiest days of the week for me - Saturday and Sunday.  It seems like there is always a project that needs to get done.  I'm just glad everyone is home for a few hours to help out.  This weekend we did lots of work - weeding the garden, washing and vacuuming the cars, giving puppy a bath.  It's pretty darn hot here too which makes the chores seem a little more miserable if you know what I mean.     Late Sunday was an Eagle Scout Party - so happy and proud to see another young man from our troop achieve this rank.  I stayed home to baby sit Miss Moriko who spent most of the time napping at my feet.    I should have taken a picture of her after her bath - so funny so see that fuzzball  less foofy.  It give you a better idea of how small she really is. 

Today begins a new 2 week challenge at The Challenge!!  (try saying that three times!).  The Challenge was is another wonderful creation by Lesley Croghan and is hosted on her blog  Always Playing with Paper.  Lesley is the creator of lots of wonderful challenges including Fusion, Dynamic Duos, Seize the Birthday, Seize the Sketch, Card Concept, and Merry Monday.  This time is double the fun because there is a color challenge, and a sketch challenge.  You can use either one that inspires you, or you can incorporate them both together like I did.

Now you are just a click away from more inspiration my friends.   We're a small group - but we've got you covered - lots of beautiful things to see here from my teamies.
