Back in the Saddle and Back in the Pool

Summer has arrived! Of course, today is not a great example of it, (only in the low 60's this week) Last week we spent most of our time at Grumpy and Grandma's in the pool...with those goggles. It was in the high 80's and low 90's. And Kate is back in the saddle with riding lessons. We love her new trainer, Ann Marie. Kate is learning so much and I am even a part of caring for the horses! Swimming, staying up later, running outside, lessons, more swimming...no school, tans, mosquito bites, friends...got to love Summer!

Looky What I Got!!!!

I got one of my birthday presents yesterday!!! My wonderful Aunt bought be a Nikkor 55-200mm lens!!! I am so excited. Isn't it pretty? Ty had a game last night and I brought it with me to play around. Just love being able to get up close without really getting up close!! I need to practice but I really had fun with it. I can already tell I am going to LOVE it!!

Here's a few pics I took yesterday!

TMS Happenings and New Creations

Christa has some great things going on at TMS!! There is a June contest going on...
June Contest!!

Everyone likes a challenge right?

I have one for you for the month of June. Contest starts now thru June 15th!! Here are the scrappy details:

We scrapbook emotions, and family.
We scrapbook events.

This time around, lets scrapbook the things in our life that aren't people or animals...the laundry, going back to school, your faith, your job, etc.

The challenge for June is to take a photo of something in your life (that doesn't breathe!) and scrap it. Be creative with your photo and what you scrap! The sky is the limit - just make sure your subject isn't alive!

Send in these entries to mosyscrapper@hotmail.com by June 15th, midnight ET to be entered into a drawing for a GRAND PRIZE!!! Check out the layouts that the DT did to get you motivated!

The grand prize if from LemonTreeStudio!! Get your pages in!

We have a lot of challenges that will be going on this Summer and they are now worth points. When we post challenges they will be given a point value. The more challenges you do, the more points you get. At the end of the summer, there will be a grand prize drawing!! So start getting creative!

TMS has also starting FLARE to the forum!! There are a lot of different ways to earn flare. One is as easy as just signing up on TMS. Check it out in the forum. Who doesn't like a little bit of flare?

Not only does TMS have a lot of great challenges and contests, but there is a lot of inspiration and chatting going on there all the time!! Feel free to join us at any time!

These are some layouts I created with the June kit Christa sent us to design with. Love all the orange and blue that we got to work with!
