Dad ~ You're one in a melon

Hello and happy Wednesday.  Today my project for the blog is a page layout of my Dad.  I love this picture of him.  Since retirement and moving away from the city his veggie patch is his pride and joy.  This is his first ever home grown watermelon.

The LSHD file 

This file from LSHD was perfect for this page.

 This is also a Christmas tradition in our family.   Dad chooses a watermelon for Christmas day.  The watermelon lies in our swimming pool on the day while we celebrate.  We have a “cold” Christmas lunch. After lunch those that feel like a swim jump in the pool, the watermelon comes out and Dad cuts it up for the family.

Thanks for stopping by

A Little Rain Must Fall

I don't know about you, but I love a good rain shower.
I love sitting out on my porch swing and just listening to the rain fall.
Here in Illinois, well my part of Illinois anyways, we have been greatly lacking in the rainfalls.  So when we do have a shower I make sure to enjoy it while it last.

This week's blog theme is Rainy Days.





I hope you have enjoyed looking at all the wonderful projects our design team has made.
