Flooding at Murray Park

While I am working tonight dealing with the flooding, Brandon decided to GO to the floods! This is Murray Park acting as the flood plain which it was designed as.

It is pretty cool to see, I admit! It hasn't been this bad since 1983's El Nino floods when State Street turned into a river. Murray park did flood last year, too, with overflow into the #2 lane northbound but was clear after a few hours.

In addition to natural disasters, it's West Fest in West Valley City (always FUN from a public safety standpoint), Taylorsville Dayzz and the Extreme Home Makeover Utah Edition project in Daybreak. Man! I haven't worked a swing in a long time. What a weekend to refresh! Hope your weekend has MUCH less mayhem!

Warm wishes,

The spot where we took our family pictures 8 years ago when Brook was a baby - totally under water now!


The bridge is totally wiped out here.

The hill on the north side at 330 e, where we used to rollerblade.

Almost looks like the south with the weepy cyprus trees you always see in pictures!

Looks peaceful, but you can see how fast it's moving and how dangerous it is.

The ropes show where the banks of the river normally are.

A Lucky Thank You

This is the card that went into our prize package at last Saturday's Job's Daughters Crop and Boutique. We gave away $25 in a combined prize worth over $200. (Remember, They invited us back in the fall, so I'll post details for you as we get them so you can join in the fun!)

I used Lucky papers for this card with a little chocolate cardstock for the base. It's a pretty simple card, but it has some WOW power with the big 'Thanks' and sparkly organza bow (one thing I love about organza is how it catches the light.)

I'll be posting the results of my Blog Candy Contest in a few hours as well (as soon as I get out of the doctor's office for our ultrasound-more on this tomorrow!) so stay tuned for those announcements as well.

Have a great day out there and enjoy the summer day! It's only getting better this week!

Warm wishes,

Happy Father's Day

Here's a shout-out to all the dads out there! Have a great day enjoying your family and friends- even with the rain!

The idea behind the apple tree is that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. I made this for the kids to give to Brandon. Sadly the kids are out of town this weekend camping in Fish Lake, so we'll celebrate when they get home.

This card features:

Bliss papers (on the inside)
Cranberry and Colonial White cardstock.
Stamps: Grown With Love, Nov '10 SOTM for the sentiment
Olive, Cranberry and Chocolate inks
Cranberry Ribbon Round

Warm wishes!
