Hello!! Hope you have had a great July 4th weekend. I'm sure the fireworks were beautiful everywhere. My husband and I just look around to our neighbors on the block to set off their own fireworks. That's about all we do.The kids go and do their own thing so it's just us now. Fireworks has never been my husbands thing unless he has his own to do. We really don't have the place to let any off here. I really can do without. Also, my dog is terrified of fireworks. She really goes nuts and howls every time she hears one. We have to keep here in the house because she tries to claw through the fence to get out. She has many scratches on her snout from doing it the other day.

We are at a challenge that we all love. The "Anything Goes" challenge. As you know I try to do some kind of layout for my family album and the image I chose for this week went perfect with the idea I had. I used the image called "Smart Owl" from our great sponsor Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog. She had this cute owl that is a grad from our school. This went perfect with the pictures I had of my Grandson graduating from pre-school. I'm so glad she let me use this one. I used the owl and then rotated it so it looked the the owls had their backs together. They didn't end up together but are still adorable. Here is the prize that Robyn with be giving this week.

3 Digital Images

Remember that Robyn just released 15 new digital a few weeks ago. You could get 3 of those new ones. That would be great for a prize. Now this is my little pre-school grad.

I totally love this page. It was easy to come up with and I love the way the owls turned out. I colored the owls as close to the blue that my grandson was wearing. In person it's so close that you would think it is the exact same color. The owl is colored in two light colors of brown. I just want to tell you so you didn't think it's just one boring color. I added some 3D chipboard school pieces and crayons. Here is where all the items came from 

Cardstock -- The Paper Studio
Paper -- The Paper Studio
ABC's & 123's Bottom Strip -- Jolee's Boutique
Crayons On Middle Picture -- Dress It Up
3D School Embellishments -- The Paper Studio (La Petites)
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils

I hope you like the layout. It is part of a two page layout that wasn't done when I did this. It will probably take another half hour. The to pages are adorable together. On the other page, I wrote the story of the evening so everyone could sense what happen when I was there. I hope that the rest of today will be more fun with family and friends and enjoy every minute. I have a great little birthday party to go to. My cute little great nephew who is turning two. So, see you next week
