Well, I have been a busy little girl this weekend. I managed to complete 2 mini albums. That's right, kiddies! TWO! Yay for me! I had such a good time. My hands were stained brown from the distressing ink. There were paper and ribbon bits all over the floor. Even the couch had supplies strewn all over it. Oh, what a ball I had!

Here are pictures of the one I did of my trip to Oklahoma last month. I even bought this mini in OK at a great lss Lisa and I visited. I had a great time working on this mini which is fitting since I had such a great time in OK.
Here is Lisa's furball, Kiara. What a sweetie! Just darling!
I found out that they make spring loaded umbrellas for golf clubs. Who knew? Meet Zoey and Nikki. More cute furballs. Zoey belongs to Jess and Nikki belongs to David's aunt, LouAnn, whom I also got to meet.
Here are Emma, Matt, Jess and Josh. And, of course, David and Lisa. Very handsome bunch, right? Notice my crocheted flowers.

Ain't she pretty?

Can't go to OK and not take pictures of cows. Lisa was kind enough to stop on the side of the road so I could take these pictures and the cows were only too kind enough to pose for me. Before you go wondering, the snake was dead but I did make Lisa stop so I could take a picture of it. How could I not? The thing was lying right there in the middle of the street.
We were on our way to the airport but Lisa spotted this sight up on a hill where a Church was and she made a quick stop to allow me some prime picture taking. What luck to find a covered wagon, campfire and teepee all in one convenient place.
These pictures are from my trip to OK last August.
Here is a pretty little B&B.
There's that teepee I mentioned above. It was very cool seeing this. I'd never seen one in real life before so it was a real treat for me. Thanks for stopping, Lisa.
Thanks for giving me such great trips, Lisa. Because of you I have wonderful memories and now I have a nifty little album to remind me of your kindnesses.
Hope you enjoyed! Come back soon. Remember, I have another mini that I'll be posting.
Have a great night.
Oh, and Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there and to the moms who do both jobs!

Ohhh, your mini book is so awesome! I love seeing it page by page, especially with your pictures in it! Just gorgeous. Did you cut it with your Cricut?

It looks like you had a fabulous time, both times! Can't wait to see your other mini.

What a great book!! Love it!! How do you do those so fast??? You are a real speed daemon!!

Great pics and the book looks great in pictures. I can only imagine how wonderful it looks in person!!!

Great job, Serene

OOOOk-lahoma, where the wind comes sweepin' down the plain! hehehe

She is a speed demon Barb. What would take me two months she does in a day. Talk about getting her focus on!

Serene... it's beautiful. You did an amazing job and I need to go back and look through all the pages again. I have a feeling though that seeing it on here doesn't do it justice. I must see it in person and promise not to take it! Really... I promise!

Yee haw! You had quite the trip to OK and what a great momento of the sites. Sounds like such fun and your book is beautiful. Love the photos and the embellies. Very nice. Can't wait to see what you do with Texas!

Amazing! Beautiful! And Lisa and her family aren't too shabby either!heehee.....
Funny that Lisa says she won't steal the album if she sees it in person, as I was going to warn you not to let it into her grasp!
