It's a crazy week around here...a sweet award & a layout to share!

I'm LOL about my blog entry titles lately...seems so random...guess that is what happens when LIFE gets crazy and you have lots to share :0)

The small town that I live in has a big celebration every year called "Threshing Days"-the original idea behind it was to celebrate after the wheat harvest! Beginning a week before the actual celebration, we start having nightly events. Night golf, movie night in the park, flag football tournament, potluck in the park, night swim, dodge ball tournament, volleyball tournament, & so on! Lots to do!

Here's just a couple of fun pics:

The above photo was taken @ the park on movie night...& yes, it might be considered a little bit red-neckish, but we don't really care! LOL! My nephew rigged up this old wheat truck several years ago with a "big screen" attached to the side of it. He uses a projector to display the movie on the "big screen" works like a charm! We had beautiful weather & a great family movie "RV" starring Robin Williams. I had forgotten just how funny that movie was!

& here's my guys playing flag football! They put together a high school team, but were definitely outsized by the rest of the "adult" teams...I think they had fun anyway?

Now for the blog award! I have rec'd this award before, but it is always such a sweet surprise to be honored by a blogger buddy! I rec'd this ONE LOVELY BLOG AWARD from Kristin. She really has a great blog with challenges & such (scrappy goodies up for grabs too!) so you really should go check her out! Thanks Kristin! Now, I am supposed to pass this award along to some newly discovered blogs...I have found some great blogs thru the SPCC Color Combo challenges. Here's a few of my faves: Raechelle & Amy! Go check them out...they have great blogs & are very talented scrappers!

Here are the rules:

1) Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link.

2) Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you've newly discovered (sorry but I just don't have time to pass it on to 15!!!)

3) Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

& finally a layout that I want to share! I created this layout for a guest design team spot contest at Back Porch Memories using the PageMap provided. I love entering this contest because you have a chance @ being chosen to guest design, plus you have a chance to win a scrappy prize! Well, sad to say, I didn't win either. LOL! But, the bonus for me is that I created a layout that I absolutely adore...I can say that, can't I??? :0) It's of my DH & I (for some reason, we hardly ever have our picture taken together, so for me, it's priceless!)
