{ Yes, Virginia...}

...there really is a Tracyshappyplace. Hello all. Guess what? I actually have something creative to share with you today!! I stamped! Woohoo! Here is a card I made this week for my Mom's 60th bday. I was actually pleased with this one. I made one other one last week too, but have not taken a photo of it yet.























Well here we are. It is the last official day of summer here at our house. The kids go back to school tomorrow. It is gonna be hard getting up at 6am again, but I am happy to get back to a routine too. The girls start up their dance classes tonight too. Unfortunately, we missed the used gear sale this year. Ouch!! 2 pairs of jazz shoes and 2 pairs of tights...$160!! We will definitely not miss it next year! oh well...

Just thought I would share a new photo of our puppy Rudy with you all. Here he is post camping after we got back from this last trip out to Mt Kidd. It was REALLY hot here when we got back and I think this sums it up...


















Also, if anyone else is interested, I have updated my Crochet blog as well. This summer has been filled with reading and crocheting. You can also checkout what I have been reading on my sidebar.

Thanks for stoppin' in and stickin' with me through my paper crafting lull.

Ah Tracy happy to see that you haven't gave up on stamping :) Love your card, your mom is going to love it as well.

I can't believe how much Rudy has changed, his facial hair is totally different from when he was younger!

Enjoy your day by yourself tomorrow, I'm sure you'll get a lot of reading in :)

Sweet card, Trace. Your Mum will love it. :)

OMG, how stinkin' cute is Rudy in this picture. He reminds me of my Siamese who just came out of heat again. She's absolutely beat from yelling her head off for a week and is completely crashed out in her bed! Glad we don't have to go through that! lol :)
