a walk in the park...

took the boys down to City Park for a little walk today... we forgot the camera (now that we have a 'pocket camera', we never remember to bring it!), but Shawn had his phone and was trying to get a picture of the 3 of us:

Harley was as cooperative as usual...

Milo was more interested in duck watching...

Harley's always leery of the possible hug...

Finally, one decent picture out of the whole bunch... I love snuggly Milo!

we spent part of the beautiful sunny afternoon on Saturday with Andrea (the fabulous photographer who is going to shoot our wedding!) & the boys at the dog beach - check out the sampling of pics she posted! I cannot wait to see them all! Thanks Andrea - the boys had a great time and Shawn and I think your work is fantastic!

up a few goodies for this weekend's Stamp - A - Stack:

If you know me, you more than likely know that I'm not so much a pink-lovin' sort of girl, but SU!'s pink pirouette is just a really pretty, soft colour (for a pink)... pair it with chocolate chip, and I just might really like it!

This Parisian Breeze Designer Series paper has to be one of my favourite things from SU! thus far! It's cardstock weight... and it's textured (reminds me of my all time favourite, Wild Asparagus by MME!!)! Not to mention that it has beautiful patterns, and coordinates with kraft, chocolate chip and baja breeze...

This folded shirt is not my original idea... I saw it a couple of years ago on SCS, while searching for 'manly' card ideas. Well, I think almost every guy I've made a card for since then has received some version of the 'shirt card' - I just love it! I'm going to need a new idea here pretty soon though, because I think everyone's got one already!
