Hey there!

We are expecting a small break from the current heat wave with highs topping out in the mid 80s. It's not a huge drop but I'll take it, especially if it means we get some cooler nights again. I'm thinkin' we must be in the "dog days of summer" because the temps are zapping my energy and all I want to do is lay around like my little dog. Too bad I've got places to go and things to get done, he'll just have to keep sleeping the days away by himself, LOL! ;)

As for my card today, well... Tropical Mae is getting along just fine in all that sunshine. She's another digi that I've had printed up for awhile and I wanted to color her up before moving on to darker... creepier... kookier... kinds of stamps (hint, hint). Mae is such a beautiful little Polynesian princess that I had to pair her up with my all time fave tropical vacation papers, the old Making Memories Great Escape collection. I just had to have it even though I've never taken a tropical vacation to scrapbook so I'm delighted to finally use it with my card making. Oh how the little things do keep me happy. :)

Alrighty, well I'll see ya again tomorrow... August SN previews will be starting and like I hinted, we will be leaping ahead to the next season for this one.
