Can you believe this kit is PERFECT for Destiny's dress? How cool! This is another brag book page I created using "Summer Daze" from Joni Gray designs.(link in sidebar).
Destiny is growing up sooo fast.She's not a baby any more..that's for sure!:)

We had flooding here in Georgia this last Monday.Whew! Was it ever WET!! We didn't have enough damage to really mention when you think of the damage that others had.Losing their homes and all their belongings.Then the nine lives that have been lost in the flood.:( How sad!

Our garage filled up with two inches of water..due to the overflow on the hill behind us.The trench Jim made for the runoff (to keep our yard from flooding) a few years back..just couldn't handle the amount of rain that was coming down the hill.Jim came home from work that afternoon and came in through the garage to get into dry weather faster..and discovered the garage floor was covered in water.Sooo we all got together and swept and blew the water out (using the yard blower) and things down there are drying out now.What a job! I need to do more sweeping or lift weights or something..to get more toned in my shoulder muscles.Moving that water around with a small broom..is NOT the best solution ..but it was all we had available at the time. I am soo thankful that the damage my family had was basically minor things.At least the ones I know of so far anyway.Mom had some leaking from her roof and will need a few minor repairs. Fortunately..she has the guys to help her with that.I personally refuse to do roofing repairs. I am not as young as I use to be.Yes..I did help Jim start roofing one of the houses we helped build as a down payment years and years ago.Jim made me stop helping the moment he found out we were expecting our third child. Hmm...he did that with riding a motor cycle with our first one too..:( .and I was having FUN!!LOL
Things seem to be drying out around here now and so is this subject.LOL Sooo ..I guess I will leave it at this for now.

Have a wonderful week!!

Hugs,
Valinda

Hi Val,
Oh boy, it wasn't fun all the water. You did send me already an email about it, but answering them ... sometimes.. you know.! Glad there was no real big damage done, but it's always a mess afterwards and oh my I can almost feel your muscles protesting! LOL We are fortunately till now not having such mess, although in other parts in Holland it already occured. In other parts of Europe it was devistating too with water.
Here i am keeping busy with the designing we also prepared a blogtrain soon because of the 1 year anniversary of the blog and some specials. Oh boy, that was great fun and some beautiful things are there done!
If I am right it will be somewhere next week.
Have a great weekend and hope the garage will dry up soon!
Hugs
