Hi Everyone and hope your having a Great Memorial Day! McCade went to sing today at the Elk Spring Cemetery for Memorial Day to Honor our fallen Soldiers and it is always such a surreal feeling that I get when he does these things because it really puts life into perspective as to what our "Freedom" really means and at what cost to some of these amazing soldiers that gave their lives for our Freedom. And having had a
Father who was in the Navy and a Husband that was in the Marines, I feel very blessed that I had the opportunity to spend the mourning honoring them.
Now on to a lighter note.............................Let's go To The HOP, Oh Baby! Let's go To The HOP!
Well if you've arrived here from the BBTB2 blog hop, Welcome! This weeks challenge was to use the Sweethearts Cartridgeand use the "Bless this Nest" phrase and I decided to do another Layout. I had so much fun last week with the layout that I wanted to do another and I wanted to use the darling little birdies. This is what I came up with. (Minus the pics.) We built our own little house, with the knowledge and help from my Brother and our Dear Nieghbors (and it's still a work in process LOL) Pictures will grace these pages as soon as I find them LOL! Most all the cuts were from the Sweethearts cart and also used Straight from the Nest for the clothes line, birds nest, grass and flowers. Now.....................
You might have came here from my amazing DT sister Jeannie's blog, her cards are so beautiful and the insides are just as beautiful as the outside! (Don't you just LOVE her amazing creations) And such a Sweetheart!

I am a newbie country girl, formally from the city. Grew up in California, moved to Las Vegas then landed here in Kentucky! Boy what a TRIP! I am married to my Best Friend and I have three beautiful kids. Brian-30 yrs, Dawn-27 yrs and McCade-10 yrs, Yes there is a BIG space in age. All I can say is OOPS. I also have 3 Grand babies, Molly 7 yrs., Madison (aka Tinkerbell) 5 yrs. and Ethan 2 year. We have 5 furballs, Sasha, Tank & Trouble (T & T), Heidi, and last but not least Binky. My inspiration for the name of my blog, the love of Flowers and a "Blossoming" new way of life here in the country. I wanted to create this blog to share some of my pictures, card and scrapbook creations, and just about anything else I can think of. I was also tired of being computer illiterate and was bound and determined to learn how to use this. So it's still a work in progress but, aren't we all!
