Here are a couple of layouts done by my amazing Creative Team!

creative Team Layouts copy

And it appears we are new owners of the neighbors wild turkey that had taken to our house better than her old yard. We did find out they fly pretty easily, she loves our roof and the yard. She I broke down after 2 days and got her some food and a water dish. I have even learned her little talking noises. So be on the outlook for a new product in the future called Lucy Lou as yes we have named her.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and enjoy doing whatever makes you happy! That is my plans to spend some time up at a local lake with the grandchild and family to hopefully get him his first real fish on his pole that he care around since last year when hubby gave it to him.  And if they water isnt too cold maybe take a kayak out for a round or two around the lake.

I can also say that I have just about all my weekly pages done minus a few bits of journaling, so I am keeping to my resolution and it feels amazing.

And I too am ready to get my normal life back, not that I haven’t  had  good time with him, but his and mine life has changed so very much and we want our old life back.
