Life & Such..

Ever have those moments that life keeps getting in the way of plans?  I keep saying, when life slows down I will.....well does it ever?  I guess it's time to just DO IT! This month we drove from Tacoma, (Seattle) Washington to Nebraska, then went to Fargo, ND for a family reunion where we meet a bunch of "new to us" family, then home in just over a week.  Once we got home I managed to get some crazy upper respiratory thing that just does not want to go away.  I am hoping very much that I can shake it soon!

Well, enough of all that, I have to tell you about the new challenge happening over at Pile it On.  The sponsor for this week is Add A Little Dazzle with lots of get stuff, take a minute to check them out, if you can.

This weeks theme is emboss, any kind, so lets see what you got.
