Rescue Hero Boots Dusty wears every chance he gets, when he first got them
he would wear them inside all day long...and even in his pj's

Cooper is always giving me silly smiles if he knows the camera is on him

This is how I spent my afternoon, it warmed up to about 50 something and the sunshine felt awesome!

Boomer enjoyed the outdoors too

The boys go from one bike to another love the color in this one

Dusty loves to swing and when it stops, push momma
push momma! Love it!

I was pushing Coop at the time and Dusty saying push momma!

You can just see the enjoyment Cooper is having

I just loved this one too

This was my favorite picture of the day
his boots are on backwards (he put them on himself)
he is smiling and having a fun time

              Just thought I would show a few pictures I took today. I decided since it was turning off to be a nice cool day I would take the boys outside for a little while, I thought I would read and catch up on my class but I was wrong...lol! I ended up pushing then on the swing and practicing some shots all in manual. We had a blast and enjoyed the warmth of the sun. I also had a exciting morning when I found out I won the challenge over at Imaginisce Blog......WOW!! I was so excited to find out!! Thanks again Imaginisce!! You guys ROCK!! Oh yeah I do have this for sale at Etsy http://www.etsy.com/listing/66771694/upcycled-princess-wall-hanging-pink Well better go......have laundry to fold and a few projects to finish up.

The end of the sign forever


         Hi all it has been a busy one....starting with the Friday night store closing closings, such a sad sad evening.  My journey with All About Scrapbooks began in the early 2000 I would go in to buy my papers for my altered arts and cards. I was not a scrapbook just a stamper and would use the papers in my arts. I continued to shop until the end...yeah I even spent money there on Friday night.......We will all miss this wonderful place to shop, share ideas, make friends, and just relax.  This particular location has been open for over 12 1/2 years. Bob and Rogene have had three scrapbook stores in the area and this was the last one. Bob and Rogene feel it is time to enjoy their family even more, they are expecting a grandchild.
        I had began teaching at the store in February of last year right after Rusty Pickle closed their doors. I am now just waiting for the next door to open. I will miss teaching at the store most of all I have meet some wonderful beautiful people along the way. Several of these friendships of become very strong and meaningful. As the decade ends I only hope and wish the best for Bob, Rogene, and Tara....and the many others that the store closing will impact. Thanks so much Bob and Rogene! Weeepy eyed......
        A little on the bracelet it is a etched copper bracelet and the beads are hand made paper beads using the Webster Pages papers. I also sprayed them with a shine sealer. I love fisheys and of course anything beachy...hope you like it. I buy all my jewelry supplies at Ornamentea.com . Have a wonderful week and cyber hugs, Dawn Gallop
