Very Quiet Weekend!

My proprietary backup battery to my internet modem fried on Thursday evening and gave up the ghost on Friday morning the 15th...GREAT...No INTERNET....NO TV....NO PHONE until about 4:30 p.m. yesterday! Needless to say, I did some scrapping and designing, did a special project for a "new found" family member, and read. I finished Good Christian Bitches (the TV series GCB is based loosely on it), it's a good book and hard to find. Plus, before I lost the internet, I had downloaded 50 Shades of Gray (all 3 books in the trilogy) to my IPad...I am in the midst of book 2. That is so very hard to QUIT reading and go to sleep....LOL! Anyhow, just thought I would let y'all know all is well, just was a very QUIET yet productive five days here!
Here's a page I created for Amy & Margaret from a photo that Amy sent after they had left the beach, aren't they lovely? Sister in laws and best friends...I used a kit by RRD called circle of friends. and the word art is from Sunshine Creationz.
Here's a page for Margaret....She is a total horse lover, and this Midnight Riding QP by Lanell at Never Forget Memories is perfect for her.
Here is Miss Sebrina in a page I created, I am trying to learn working with textures and curing edges, etc. I also used some RRD clusters too! The photo is from her Facebook account.
Until next time, y'all have a terrific rest of the week, making lots of memories to share!
Luv, Mat

Happy Flag Day!!

Happy Flag Day! This flag is flying over Ft. McHenry outside Baltimore, Maryland! I took them in 2003 on a trip there. Notice there are 13 stars! The original first flag sewn by Betsy Ross is in this museum being oh so carefully restored. The Today Show is broadcasting from there this morning as they are celebrating to 200 years since the War of 1812. This is the flag that Francis Scott Key wrote the words of the Star Spangled Banner about. Long may she wave over this land of the brave and free. Thanks to all that have fought to defend Old Glory and what she symbolizes....FREEDOM!! Remember to fly your flags proudly today and everyday! Luv, Mat
