Branching Out

This is the tree in our backyard. You have seen it several other times...I usually sit my layouts and cards in its branches or on the ground up against it's trunk. I have loved this tree since we moved here despite it's weird seedy pods it throws all over the sidewalk and porch in the spring. This summer it decided to attract bees...to the point the kids couldn't play on their toys. Will the bees come back? The trees fate is in their tiny little "hands."
I am a chronological scrapbooker. I scrap all my photos. Because of the delays with "our" schoolhouse/scraproom this is my latest layout...Christmas 2006! Wow I am behind. BFF Ruth is in the bottom left corner...today is her bday...she is 93...I mean 53...heehee!

Great pages! You are the Scrappy Girl!
Did you watch the Houswives of the OC? I didn't get to. I am wanting to know what happened.
Hugs, Bobbi Jo

My sister has crazy bee's that camouflage themselves on her house and deck. They are the scariest things I have ever seen. Really the hive gets as big as a bowling ball...totally creeps me out! Here in the south we get those mean old wasps that will chase you down and some really freaky horse fly's that will Zap you hard! Maybe there is a trap of some thing that might keep the bee's away. My advice would be to call a pest control company. Hope you get to keep your tree.

I love the color's in the valentine card....reminds me of Twilight...lol! Your so creative! And thanks again for the grab. I love the one with Bella and Jacob...let's face it, that's when we all started to love Jacob. Even though I love Edward more...sheezz...over involved much...heehee!

Love the card and the scrapbook page. Wish I had someone to "craft" with me! :( Maybe I would get motivated.
