I thought I would share these with you today. The flowers are from my gardens and the squirrels are our new tenants in our front tree. There's actually 5 babies we think. It's been neat watching her raise them. If anyone knows what those bell like flowers are, pls let me know!! I have no idea what they are called, but they spread like crazy. They don't smell, but look really pretty!
Have a wonderful day!!

(2nd post today, scroll down for today's FBW post!)
Now, onto my layout. My sister and I are 8 yrs apart (yep, me being the oldest) and growing up, we always gave each other 'sister' things and these are 2 of my keepsakes that I wanted to be sure to preserve and what better way than to scrapbook them! So, I took the one out of the frame and here's what I came up with. I love the way they turned out and it's something that I can treasure forever. Thanks Lee Ann!
So, now it's your turn to flutter over to the FBW blog and play along! Check out the new blog design while you're there and be sure to grab a blinky! Also, be sure to congratulate the new DT. Can't wait to see what you create this week!! Also, just a note, FBW will be taking a break for the month of June and will return in July...click here for details!

I was doing a little blog hopping before I head to school and I came across Cabio's Flower tutorial and I have to show you!!! Her flowers are gorgeous and she did an amazing job with her tutorial. You can find it here!
Also, check this out!! I found this amazing product when I hopped by Follow Your Heart. I have to get some!!
Hope everyone is well. It's supposed to rain all day tmw, so I'm hoping to get in here and do some scrapbooking or at least do some blog hopping to see what everyone has been up to.

For my project today, I actually finished up my magnetic note board and turns out it was perfect for today's FBW challenge! The butterflies are 3D so the wings stand up and the magnets are flowers as well as the ribbon has flowers too!
Can't wait to see what you create!

Anyway...my sister has been putting some quotes on her MSN tagline, and I just had to share them because they just made me laugh. My nephew is quite the little man. He's turning 7 in July (where does the time go???) but he said the other day "I guess Maddie doesn't have a very good remembery" Maddie is his 4 yr old sister. How cute is that?? Then Lee Ann posts another one yesterday and had me laughing. Another from Hayden..."I guess the bee stung me last summer because he didn't like my type"
How cute are those??? Do you have any quotes that you could share? I'd love to hear them!!

Good morning friends! Yesterday afternoon I was out playing with one of my daycare kid's and a bee buzzed by her and went right to my bleeding hearts. So, guess what I did?? Yep, ran and got my camera! I was really impressed with these shots. You can see the pollen on the bee's leg! It was pretty cool to watch, let alone photograph! In the one shot of my bleeding heart, you can see the web's on it and then the oriole is one of our backyard birds. We have 3 males and a female, so we're hoping to see baby's soon! I'll keep you posted! Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!

A mother is someone to shelter and guide us,
To love us, whatever we do,
With a warm understanding and infinite patience,
And wonderful gentleness, too.
How often a mother means swift reassurance
In soothing our small, childish fears,
How tenderly mothers watch over their children
And treasure them all through the years.
The hearth of a mother is full of forgiveness
For any mistake, big or small,
And generous always in helping her family
Whose needs she has placed above all.
A mother can utter a word of compassion
And make all our cares fall away,
She can brighten a home with the sound of her laughter
And make life delightful and gay.
A mother possesses incredible wisdom
And wonderful insight and skill-
In each human heart is that one special corner
Which only a mother can fill!
- 6 boneless/skinless chicken breast halves (4 oz's ea)
- 1 carton cream cheese (we've done both herb/garlic and chive/onion)
- 1 tbsp butter
- salt to taste
- bacon strips (calls for 6, I adjust accordingly)
- preheat oven to 400*
- flatten chicken to 1/2" thickness
- spread cream cheese and add a little dot of butter and salt
- roll up and wrap with bacon
- place seam side down in greased 13x9" baking dish and bake uncovered for 35-40 min's or until juice runs clear
- broil 6" from heat for 5 min's until bacon is crisp
I added my own spin on it by pre-cooking mushrooms and bacon and adding a strip of bacon and mushrooms in the middle before rolling it up. I cooked it at 350* for about an hour, instead of 400* and it turned out really nice. Once it was done, I covered it with spaghetti sauce and shredded cheese and put back in oven till cheese was melted. Was very good!
