wait, it’s late!

What?! It’s passed midnight?! I got home early from teaching my bind-it-all class, and I’m still no where where I want to be on my to do list!

Looks like I’m going to be creating into the wee hours of the morning. I don’t mind though because I seem to have more creativity when it’s late. Anyway, I thought I would take a quick break to write a post before I get back to the table.

As promised, below are just a few of the HUNDREDS of  pictures from this past weekend:

All in all it was a wonderful weekend with the family. We had some yummy BBQ and a fun time lighting up the fire works. …and like last year, we hosted our annual neighborhood 4th of July show. It has become a yearly tradition to do a display of fireworks, and I totally enjoy watching it (and taking photos of it, too).

On top of the fireworks, my cousin and his family arrived from Florida a couple of days ago. They are relocating to California, so you’ll probably be seeing new faces in my photos.

I also have a winner to the Punky Sprouts book. The winner is…

conniemelancon please contact me at redoaklines@gmail.com to claim your prize! No worries, to the rest of you. As you all know, I LOVE to do giveaways. Stay tuned because I’m thinking about doing an Imaginisce giveaway. 😉

Speaking of Imaginisce, have you stopped by the blog recently?! There’s a Birthday Bash celebration going on right now – meaning lots of giveaway! 😉

Below is layout I created using the latest release, Birthday Bash:

No joke… but this is my favorite birthday paper! The colors are fabulous, and the products to this line are so unique! Again, head to the blog for major inspiration from my fellow Imaginisce designers. …and make sure to check back here very soon; I recently received a box LOADED with NEW products, which means more inspiration for all of you!

Lastly, I wanted to share a couple of layouts that I created for That Scrappy Girl. I was sent some Echo Park Paper to design with, so I got right to it.

If you find the time to leave extra love, click here. 😉

Thanks for the taking the time to pop in today. I really appreciate each and every one of your visits. It’s not easy to share one’s personal life in a public space, so having positive vibes/comments means so much to me. You all are amazing.

PS: Now, it’s back to working on the Punky Sprouts album I need to create for an upcoming class. I plan on starting/fishing it tonight.
