week 15

happy memorial day! let us not forget all the service members that have given their lives for the freedom that we enjoy. freedom isn't free. thank you!

since i live in a free land i thought today would be a perfect day to take this new site live! i would love to hear from you. please like me on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/StephanieNaceDesigns or follow this blog and leave me some comments. thanks!

so here we go, week 15. i am actually up to date in my project life but just behind on the blog so i will be working on that this week. i hope to be caught up but the end of the week.

this was a very exciting week, lil'd started reading at school, he even read "the desert" book to his whole class. so proud of him. we also took james to old mccaskill's farm on friday, we all really enjoyed the trip.

denton and i had a sushi lunch date this week. its been so nice having him back home. i wrote directly on the photo with american craft's precision pen. the "heart" this stamp comes from hello forever and was part of the studio calico project life kit for may. the two larger 4x6 cards are also from studio calico. the two smaller cards also from studio calico. i used the "let the adventure begin" stamp on d's image of his reading to the class. that stamp is from the same hello forever series. the cheesecake, by the way, is a margarita cheesecake, i will have to include that recipe on the projects page. 

the right side was dedicated to our trip to old mccaskill's farm. it sprinkled on us for a bit during lunch but it was a really great trip. this place is a b&b and working farm. they serve a country lunch on fridays. let me tell you what, it's some of the best food i have ever had! they have dogs, horses, goats, chickens, cows, pigs, pretty much you name it and it's there. james really enjoyed it. i took a lot of pictures there and these were the most touching for me. i loved how he studied the animals, he has a funny little habit of putting his hands behind his back, love it. nothing sweeter than watching him and his daddy together. i took the larger picture in the chicken coup, i loved the color shift. i made that an 12x8 image and then cut it up to fit the layout of the design A photo protector sheet. i cut a 3x4 card down and used just the circle of "you are loved," and then used the "simple & real" from the studio calico project life kits.
