These are the first flowers that I've ever taken a picture of! I think they turned out really well considering that I have a cheap HP digital camera! :) I really love the first one. These flowers were taken at a park in TN this weekend. The Crosseyed Cricket. My husband wanted to go to a Knap-In there so we took off! I got some really great pics of the girls!

I found this cool tutorial online today! I don't sew very often with my sewing machine b.c it's so big and a pain to drag out and put up. This is a very neat tutorial to hopefully help me out with that! Felt is becoming a Hot Trend in Scrapbooking lately. I really love the look of it and wished I could use it more often. Hopefully you'll like this as much I did! ENJOY!
Have ya heard?
I just learned of this recently and I think it's so much fun. Wished I lived in town or I would do this! :)
The air is cool the season fall
Soon Halloween will come to all
The spooks are after things to do
In fact, a spook brought this to you
“BOO” is a shield from witching hour
Just hang it up and watch its power
On your front door is where it works
It wards off spooks and scary jerks
The treats that came with crypted note
Are yours to keep, enjoy them both
The power comes when friends like you
Will copy this and make it TWO
Then others here among our friends
Will give warm fuzzies that do not end
We’ll all have smiles upon our faces
No one will know who “BOO”ed whose places
Just one short day to work your spell
Or a big ZAP will strike your tail
And don’t forget a nifty treat,
Like something cute or something sweet
Please join fun, let’s really hear it
And spread some “BOO”s and Halloween spirit.
Here's what you do:
1. Place BOO in your window for neighbors to see (after receving a BOO).
2. Pass two "scare" packages on to your neighbors who haven't been "BOO"ed yet including poem and BOO pictures.
3. Watch to see the fun spread around the neighborhood.
