What a CRAZY month it's been!  Without getting to personal and spilling my guts for everyone to read......well maybe not "everyone" more like 10.....maybe even less.  lol.  Anyhoo, where was I....oh, crazy month right.  Let's see, Master K started summer classes at the Technical College, it's something his Dad and I wanted but he was the one that had to do it.  I celebrated my 45th birthday, Happy Birthday to me!  Do I feel it?  Hell yeah, some days I do.  lol.  Mr. J was hospitalized for several days and then was home with me for awhile.....he went back to work Monday, and although I'm glad to have the afternoons to myself again, I still kinda miss him.

I also got a new laptop....YAY!!!  Master K decided he wanted a bigger one so he gave me his old one, and by old I mean, he only had it about 6 months.  lol.  So Mr. J ended up with my old laptop, and by old I mean, 6 years.  lol.  Poor man, always getting the hand me downs, but does he care?  Uh no......as long as it works, he says.

On a non personal note.  Cookin' Up Creations is also celebrating a birthday this month!  YAY, Happy Birthday CUC!!!  The website is officially 1 year old and it has been celebrating all month long with daily door prizes, challenges and even more prizes!  Did I mention, PRIZES?
Angela Lewis, who is a DT member over at CUC also started a weekly photo challenge and so far they've been a lot of fun!
And......we were also sponsored by BoBunny Press!!!  Each DT member received several papers from the Persuasion collection, acrylic stamp set, buttons and bling, acrylic album and a whole roll of ribbon!!!  Talk about generous!  
I was in charge of the cards and this is what I came up with:

Thanks for looking and be sure to head over to the Cookin' Up Creations blog or gallery to see what the rest of the Design Team did.

Sweet Magnolia

Aww, the sweet smell of Magnolias.  Right now the Magnolia trees in our little town are in full bloom and boy are they GORGEOUS!  I drove Mr. J to Columbia last week and stopped in Camden on the way home to snap a few photos.   
Beautiful, eh?  When I look at this flower I imagine a group of Southern women sitting on a covered veranda in there big fancy hats and their white gloves sipping on a glass of mint julep ice tea.  lol.
