Sweet Hugs

We were always catching Elisa and Matthew hugging when they were little. They played dress up and even got married a couple of times :) Now they are independent teenagers and have different agendas. Like many of my pictorial memories, I only had 2 photos to work with. The colors in this paper from Pebbles were perfect!

The white background really lets the photos be the focus.

What would I do without the Storybook Cricut cartridge? I've used this frame so many times and never get tired of it!

Used my trusty flower and circle punches once again. I'm really in a confetti phase right now :)

We delivered Matthew safely to U of M for wrestling camp yesterday, after driving around Ann Arbor for an hour trying to find our way to the field house. Annoying detours!!! He wasn't very happy that he couldn't room with his buddies but apparently  he dragged his stuff to their room anyway. Wow are those dorm rooms small! I guess you forget how small they are when you get older :) A quick text at bedtime asking "Are you having fun?" was answered with "A lot!". I can only imagine the trouble a bunch of 10 through 15 year old boys can get into...sorry for the counselors. Back again on Thursday to pick him up. It sure is quiet around here without him.

Busy day ahead. Appointments and garage sale stuff to gather up. Still no rain in our neck of the woods and none in the forecast :( Those with too much please send some our way!

So pretty! Love the flowers and confetti, and neat stitching! Hope your son has a great time at wrestling camp! Sorry, no rain to share here, we had our first rain last night in over a month and could use more!! Have a good week!
