If you are wondering where Hayden is in these pictures, the answer is under the water in the deep in. I had enough time to take the first photo and then she was off to the deep end of the pool with friends. Thank goodness, little man still hangs out with me. Kara

Almost every Summer weekend, we spend at the lake. It is a place of relaxation for all of us. The smell of sunscreen, the mist of the water spraying off the boat, and the sun warming our skin...makes it almost paradise. It has been so cold here, that we haven't taken the boat out once this Summer until Saturday. We were all excited.
Paradise is a little community up by Smithville Lake. It has a general store called Clydes. When I was there Saturday, a little kid didn't have enough money to pay for his ice cream. The clerk behind the counter told him not to worry about it. This wasn't Wal-Mart. He gave him the ice cream. I have had to use their land phone before when my cell was dead as a doornail. Such a nice bunch of people at Clydes. We are Summer regulars since it is down the street from our boat storage. Hayden loves to tube. She drives us nuts until she can go. Sutton ,on the other hand, is scared to tube. He went on Saturday and he told us that we ruined his day and he was sick of us. I guess he won't be going for awhile.
This is our favorite cove. Notice, not a lot of boat traffic. This was Saturday...we waited 25 minutes for our turn to put the boat in. It was crazy busy, but not in our cove. So, peaceful.
Doesn't this just say it all? He will kill me when he sees this picture. Nice place for a life jacket, Shane.
All those life jacket sizes remind me how much the children have grown since we have had the boat. Time goes fast-when you are having fun. Kara

Photos of the darling little girls are taken by the fabulous Renee Burns.
The tea pot card opens...and has a real tea bag on it...
The little mirror card also opens up...it is embellished with rhinestones...
This is a little party girl dress banner...It would be so cute welcoming a new baby girl to the family or at a birthday party.

Here are a few cards and a tag-
I made a matchbook to hold a few photos...
My favorite project was a gift cone to go on the back of a chair. Jamie thought of the idea at Easter and made little treat sacks for each of her guests. I thought it would be a great place setting card except that it hangs. I also like the fact that you can put goodies in it for your guests.
Sometimes, following the rules can be very rewarding. When you are stuck on a project, limited your supplies and unleash your creative juices. Kara
