August is Gone...September knocking!

This has been a very hot and steamy summer all around the world, not just us in Texas...ROFL!  I will surely be glad to see autumn arrive....if for no other reason than that the temperatures will begin to decrease.  I haven't been too busy, except at being lazy and binge watching TV!  I went with my friend Teri for her EGD/Colonoscopy on Friday....cleaned house and washed clothes yesterday and today, I hope to catch up on my blog reading!
Here's a couple of pages I created for my Cousin (by marriage) from some lovely photos she posted on Facebook that I got her permission to use.  Her family had attended another family member's wedding and these shots were taken. The one of Sugar by herself is in a free QP I created for Miriam's Scraps. The one of the family I created to go with the photo using a background from Kyra at With a Russian-Dutch Heart and frame from Miriam.
This one of Sebrina I created for her first day of her tenth year back at school! She loves being a teacher! I used background papers from Scrapiness Down Under and the cluster is a freebie from Digital Scrapbooking Studio by skd-pbs' Schoolhouse Kit
This photo I snagged of my friends Jan and Bill at graduation from high school for their neighbor's son Chance. It was such a nice photo that I created a memory page for her using a frame double layered by Neli at Lugar Encantado da Neli.
So, I did a few pages...but that is about all, maybe when the heat, humidity and awful air quality relaxes a little, I can muster up some more energy to do something but be lazy.  Well, guess I better get off here, headed to Jannette & Mike's house for lunch and some homemade ice cream....yummy, yummy for my tummy!  Chat more with y'all later, in the meantime, have a marvelous week of making lots and lots of memories to share! Love y'all! Mat


  1. When in winter we sigh for some warmer and better weather the weather gods always work too hard on it in summer (well, often) LOL.
    Didn't do much here either, just some little things, not so much because of the weather, just feeling kind of lazy and loved watching WC athletics!
    Will try to make a little post on my blog, and then do something useful with my time hahaha.
    Have a great week,

  2. Your layouts are beautiful. I love the Fall, but not the cold winter that follows. Summer is too hot to enjoy, and Winter is too cold. I guess we can never be satisfied.

    I think we lost another little birdie today to a hawk. There was quite a commotion outside earlier. I tried to get a photo of the hawk but it stayed hidden inside the tree branches. Sometimes Nature makes me sad.

    Today is a lazy day for me. Just a little laundry to do, and time to play with my music. Can't beat that! You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

  3. Boa noite, querida amiga Mat!
    Você está certa, o verão está muito quente e úmido em muitos lugares. Aqui no Amazonas o calor está insuportável...
    Esta semana tive muito trabalho aqui em casa e meu tempo foi pouco para fazer tudo que eu deveria fazer.
    Gosto muito das suas postagens e de tudo que você escreve, pois nos transmite muita alegria.
    Muito obrigada por suas preciosas visitas e por suas palavras carinhosas.
    Querida amiga, uma noite muito feliz e tranquila para você!
    Abraços, Neli.

    Good night, dear friend Matt!
    You're right, summer is very hot and humid in many places. Here in the Amazon heat is unbearable ...
    This week I had a lot of work at home here and my time there was little to do everything I should do.
    Like a lot of your posts and everything you write, it gives us great joy.
    Thank you for your precious visits and for their kind words.
    Dear friend, a very happy and peaceful night for you!
    Hugs, Neli.
