The colors at Pals Paper Arts this week are so bright and summery! And our summer has started with a bang - literally! I have had lots of questions about yesterday's post (read it here) so I thought I would clear a few things up.
Yes our pontoon boat broke down two days in a row and we drifted along until help arrived - thank Heaven for cell phones! The throttle has been repaired and we have been assured - again - that all is well. Guess we will find out this weekend. I will be packing extra food and a cell phone charger....just in case......
And yes lightning struck! My son was cleaning up around the camp and had started a pile of stuff to go to the dump. A storm blew in and lightning struck that pile - note the charred handle on the shovel. It traveled to the window shattering it and leaving the glass a greeny blue color. It also blew apart a bag of recyclables. The glass bottles were intact but the cans in the bag look like they were peppered by a shotgun. The circuit breakers blew and the bedroom TV was fried. But except for one traumatized dog (poor Silas) all is well - we were lucky!
And as for that Stampin' Up! order......I just closed my eyes when the total popped up and hit submit!
I used Sweetie Pie Frames for the sentiment and to frame that cute little flower in the Hello There hostess set.
