Life is an Adventure...

Well yes it is!!  Have been busy on the home front lately... so I rewarded myself by getting to my scrap desk today.  :)  It's also very rainy here... and I am missing the sunshine, the warmth and simply hanging with my family.  So I am reliving one of our favorite adventures... HIKING.

Here is a layout that I did about our hike to Cherry Creek Falls this past August.  It was muggy hot.  Not a very well marked trail... but once we found the prize at the end, we were happy.  Love finding and seeing things after a bout of exercise.  Advantages all around.


I'm up on the blog over at Sketches
 in Thyme tomorrow (10/14) showcasing this great sketch from Shawn Lahr. 
You have until the end of the month to play along.  :)

I am also showcasing a challenge from Lasting Memories LM 262 happening now until October 30th using the theme...  "Summer time Fun and use Paper Flowers."
Well it's our summer adventure and my sunshine is a "flower" along with an embellishment in the bottom right corner.  
And then... to inspire me even further... I am joining a challenge involving 4 blogs!!  I was only able to follow 3 of the challenges... but so excited I managed.
Head on over to join...
