Cool Weather, Sunshine & Rain

Ahhh, the beauty of living in Arizona. It is currently a warm 97 degrees, sunny & raining!! I looked for a rainbow, but haven’t seen one yet. The youngest 2 girls are outside playing in the rain, one of the joys I never really got to do as a kid growing up in New England. The cool weather is a nice relief. It’s been an average of 110 lately. It looks like fall may finally be arriving!! Yeah!!
I haven’t been doing much scrapping lately. I’ve been on the computer so much lately, both at work & home; my right hand is beginning to cramp. I guess maybe it could be carpal {sp?} tunnel, the muscle in my middle finger from the knuckle to my wrist starts to really hurt & cramp now. The downfall of enjoying technology ;(
I did get a scrapbook page done, although it took me the entire week to complete!! Every time I’ve sat down to scrap some pics, I just stare at the screen & nothing. No ideas, no inspiration, no mojo. So I decided to pop on over to We Digi Dare Ya & last week they had a great dare. To find an artist, style, technique, or topic that you have wanted to try but haven’t yet and try to SCRAP LIKE THAT! And to use products from at least one designer you’ve never tried before. Bingo! I’ve always wanted to scrap just one picture with lots of “do dads” around it. Kinda like they were just thrown there, and I had just done some shopping at Funky Playground & Lily Pad, so I had some new “do dads” to play with. I didn’t get the LO done in time to get the fab freebie, but hey, a LO got completed!! LOL

Here’s my newest LO of Riley ~

Nah, fall doesn't REALLY arrive in AZ until November! (And even then, you have to open the doors wide to tolerate a fire in the fireplace! lol!) Or at least, that's how I remember it!
Hope you cool down soon! :-)
