A hunting we will go...& some other stuff!!!

Today was opening day of youth spring turkey hunting...& Joel and Kevin have been scouting some turkeys in the area. My uncle, Sid, drove about 2 hours to help out...he's is an avid hunter & loves to teach young kids any chance he gets! So they headed out early this evening in search of THE big tom...& wouldn't you know??? I got the phone call from Joel that he got one! On the first day! He was super excited and turns out this is the biggest one he's gotten so far! Weighing in at just over 20 pounds with a beard over 9 inches long and spurs measuring a whopping 1 3/4 inches! He's over the moon!

Now, on the the other stuff!

Just a few quick shares, then it if definitely past my bedtime!!! So first up is a layout featuring a photo of Joel...I tried to snap this when he wasn't looking, but at the last minute he looked over his shoulder! This was taken last summer and I knew it would be perfect for a layout that I wanted to do for both of the boys....the layout features my favorite song "My Wish" by Rascal just puts to words what I want for my boys! I couldn't get all of the song lyrics on the layout...but you get the idea! The fun owls & tree at the bottom came from Lisa's blog candy that I won a few weeks ago...Thanks Lisa!!! You can see her blog at: She's on the DT at

Also got to work on a card for the weekly challenge at They have an awesome giveaway for April that you really must go check out! The challenge this week was to create a card for April Fool's Day...I came up with this card & used some handmade flower embellishments that I created a while back using felt, buttons, cardboard lining that came in a cookie can & some Stickles. I also added a touch of hand stitching for the stems and machine stitching around the edge. I find that I am using my Label Buddy a lot lately and stamped the word "fool". My DH asked me tonight who the card was for....I looked at him and said, "Well, probably you" LOL!!! This is not the greatest photo...the background paper is a light lime green but the photo just doesn't do it justice! So cute IRL!

Gotta go for now! Take care!
