Gone Country

I took about a week or so off because my brother was in town and I love hanging out with my sibs. Steve came to town because our cousin Neal was getting married. Neal is Texas born and raised and loves everything country, so naturally his wedding reflected this. I loved all the details in their wedding. My favorite was the decoupaged boots. Here are some pictures. Enjoy!

 The girls all wore boots with their dresses

The centerpieces! Love <3

The men wore boots, jeans and the vests matched the girl's dresses

Color Combo Blog Hop

Today we are doing a color blog hop with Amy, whom I met through Shimelle's Beyond Blogging for Scrapbookers class. The theme is color. I enjoyed his blog hop because it really made me look at color in my everyday life and I was suddenly looking everywhere for our combo of colors. The rules were that you could do anything that represented the color combo (scrapbook page, card, photo, etc.) Here is our color combo:

Here is my photo to represent our color combo:

If you arrived from Ade's blog you are in the right place!

Pinata Fiesta

Last Saturday was my brother-in -law's birthday party. (Happy 32!) We had two pinatas to celebrate. The first one was for the kids and was full of candy. The second one was for the adults and full of tiny alcohol bottles. It was awesomely creative. It was a nice night to be outside enjoy bar-b-que and laugh with friends/family. I see a layout in the future with some of the new American Crafts Zing! It definitely needs to be a bright and happy layout (:
My nephews celebrates that he knocked the head off the kid's pinata

In the end we put the head on the mail box, just because we could.

Family Blog Hop

This is a rare photo of us and the dogs. Our dogs hate cameras and don't want to be anywhere near them. Although this is not the best photo, I love it alone for Wally's expression. (Wally is the small dog.) I feel as if Wally is looking at his big brother incredulously and thinking, " I can't believe you are actually posing" (:

Now hop on over to Patricia's blog and see a picture of her family.

Blog Hop

I will be particIpating in my first ever blog hop at 9am CST on May 5th. The theme is that you post a recent photo of your family. It can be whatever you define as family.
This blog hop is in support of a grander project that one of my fellow classmates in the Beyond Blogging for Scrapbookers class is working on. Margie is doing a photo a month for a year of her family. I think it would be interesting to see people change over time. A lot can happen in a year!
Anyway, I hope that you stop by my blog on Thursday May 5th to see photos of our families and to give inspiration/support to Margie to keep going on her mission of family x 12!
