Well, Doris from TempusFugit (she makes these fabulous freebies and her address is on my sidebar) didn't just want to hand us her latest kit, so we had to make a LO with one of her kits in order to get the link. I thought that was a great idea, so this is what I came up with. Now, this is not normally my style, but I thought it was kind of funny and the monkey pictures really didn't come out that great like I said before.

I really enjoy playing with the dropshadows now that I know how to create them (Thanks Cassie) and bend them. Anyway, I got my links and I got my kit, it was cute, plus I got another page done.

My backup system is driving me crazy, I can't get it to work. I keep getting these error messages, have sent Mozy several emails and not heard from them. I never had this problem before. I can' t imagine what the heck is going on there. I even left a message for my computer geek, maybe he knows something about it. I don't feel comfortable without my backup, I mean, I still have my book which I just backed up to, but that's not enough, I am paranoid!! Just imagine loosing all your stuff and your pics, I would be hardbroken!

Today is another beautiful day, the kids were in the pool and I had to put supports under my Peachtree. The branches are so loaded, they are hanging down to the ground. I found some old fence posts that were pretty long and stuck them underneath. Hopefully that will hold them.

My residen groundhog got into my vegetable garden again and chomped on my green bean plants, I could strangle that animal. Just when they were taking off and putting up flowers, now some of them are just hanging there. I still have quite a few but how will I keep him from eating those too. Pests!

Photography class is interesting. We had to take pictures with the focus off the side. I did quite a few of those.

Love the monkey layout. So cute. Made me chuckle. Great job!

That pesky groundhog sounds like our rabbits. I can't plant anything. I finally gave up.

Love the monkey LO! Groundhogs!! Oh no!! i have no idea what you do to get rid of the suckers---we'd shoot them here! Hope you figure out your back up system problem soon. I've become pretty paranoid of losing my stuff too. Well.....maybe not as paranoid as you but a close second :)!! You are becoming quite an accomplished photographer. How do you find time to learn all this stuff??

You are doing a great job with the photos. Really like the broom photo.

Groundhogs - how cute, I have never seen a groundhog (we don't have them here).

Wow! These are gorgeous!!

Never say Never!

Well, here I am creating my very own blog! I was always very sure I would never get into this blogging "thing", but here I am. I hope you will enjoy finding out a little about my not so interesting life!
