Check it out...

I'm honored that one of my very favorite challenge sites, TDX (The Design Experiment) asked me to Guest Design this month. The challenge was to scrap a favorite warm weather activity, so mine is all about BBQs! We sure do this a lot during the summer, and I love it! These photos were taken a couple of weeks ago at my neighbors LaTonya's house. She is the one on the left in that bottom photo, and next-door-Lisa is the one on the right. And, I must give another THANK YOU and shout out to my sweet friend Lisa Howard who sent me the RAK last month. I finally got to dig in and use some of the goodies she gave me, including the Cosmo Cricket and Tinkering Ink papers, as well as that pretty trim under the top photo. Thanks again, girl!!

You all can check out the challenge and see what the awesome DT did here.
Love these new glittery stickers by Doodlebug - I got them in several colors :-) Also love that cute little puffy bird from a new K&Co line.

Thanks so much for all the well wishes for my kiddos, everyone - I really appreciate that! Luckily, Noah is doing perfectly fine! He actually woke up yesterday good as new, so it seems as though it was just a 24 hour bug that he caught. I spoke to my pediatrician this morning about the febrile seizure, and he feels pretty confident that he won't get another one due to the late onset of this one (since you typically only get them from infancy to age 5, and Noah will be 5 in October). I hope he's right!!

Hope everyone's week is starting out great!
