Playtime July 18

Here's how I sometimes play.... made this a few days ago per instructions from Claudine in @home with Claudine class online at Big Picture Scrapbooking. Pretty funky, but it was sure messy fun to create! It's on an 8x8 canvas and ready to hang in my craft room!

Okay, so I am almost up to date on the photos. Just one missing.... I am waiting for a breeze to take that pic....

Picture Postcard July 15

The lovely Bountiful Lake in West Bountiful, UT. The snowcapped mountains in the background are the Oquirrhs. This was late spring/early summer (late May).

Treasure Hunters July 8th

Grandma Forsberg's treasured rocks and crystals--now our treasures since she passed away in 2000. She collected a lot of beautiful things!

The Shape of Things (July 9)

Kirsten's great idea! Turned out pretty cool!

July 17 Visual Interest

What the......!!!??? This showed up in the middle of the street last week! Turns out it came from the car dealership nearby. They were trying to fix it and took it for a test drive, but it stalled right in front of our house! All the neighbors were outside checking it out. A snowcat in the neighborhood in the middle of July!!??? Pretty funny!

Juice Fruit July 13 (catch up)

I think of fresh cherries as the Fourth of July fruit. I sure miss our old cherry trees that we cut down years ago! Now depend on Farmer's Markets or Costco. Still we love 'em!

Catching Up July 12 Simple Solitude

A beautiful, solitary dragonfly in the back yard. Love dragonflies!

We Used to Jump

Our prompt today was "Jump". Ha, we can't/don't jump anymore! This was a fun time at the Coral Pink Sand Dunes in Utah. Juergen having fun jumping off the dune (quite) a few years ago!

Great Salt Lake Sunset

Pretty nice sunset over the lake. In the spot I took this from, luckily there were very few biting gnats.

Wide open spaces by the Great Salt Lake. Had to take the photo out the car window (window shut)! There were a gazillion creepy flying bugs everywhere! I was not about to get out of the car--no way!

Such a Fun Day!

Laura and Rachel came over and stayed all day! It was so relaxing and fun to chat with them and to play with paper and lots of other fun craft stuff. Love that messy fun!

Here's yesterday's photo as well as today's. Yesterday was supposed to be about a summer tradition. Had a bit of trouble with that one since I am alone for the holiday. Today's pic prompt was drink.
