has a lit­tle bit of every­thing.

First, Maya Road.… this months chal­lenge was “Bloom where you are plant­ed” Jess had all the design team mem­bers cre­ate a project or lay­out using any of the won­der­ful flo­ral prod­ucts such as chip­board Blos­soms, Petals, the new Jour­ney East rib­bons, the new flo­ral clear stamps, rib­bon slides and blos­som albums. Talk about a fun chal­lenge. Maya Road has flow­ers!

Sec­ond, Cocoa Daisy.… Tri­cia is hold­ing a Design Team call to add two more Daisy Divas to the team. If you are look­ing to be on a design team this is the call for you. Tri­cia is fab­u­lous to design for, is very gen­er­ous with prod­uct and has built a won­der­ful com­mu­ni­ty to hang out at. This months Daisy Talk includes an altered coast­er I cre­at­ed. These are so fun to make and take hard­ly any time.

and Third.… my cousin David from Maine is vis­it­ing the DFW area for a work relat­ed project. Last night we got to spend some time togeth­er which was great. I haven’t seen him in near­ly 9 years. I must say it end­ed up being one thing after anoth­er try­ing to get him from Love Field and enter­tain­ing him as well. We went to pick him up from the air­port and could not find him… we both said we were at “Depar­tures” and of course nei­ther of us could see each oth­er. Final­ly, Alan got out and looked for the tall thin guy, wear­ing glass­es with a New Eng­land accent. Final­ly found him at a very con­fus­ing area and 5 trips around the air­port. I should have known then it was gonna be a night. I took the wrong turn out of the air­port and end­ed up lost. Alan got us back on track and head­ing for 35. Well, all would have been well if the on ramp was­n’t CLOSED! So we turned around head­ed back to where we came from to find the toll­way. After 45 min. of u‑turns and back track­ing we final­ly found the toll­way. David kept say­ing, “remem­ber as far as I know this is the right way as I have not been here before… what do I know.” Which would make me laugh but I was so frus­trat­ed. I do not like being lost. So we are now head­ed for the Rough Rid­ers game (AA base­ball and farm team to the Texas Rangers) we thought it would be a fun night since he likes base­ball to show him our sta­di­um and watch the game. Well we get there and they had a bad water leak on the field so the game was called OFF! Yep, called off. I could not believe it.

So me being the ever so devot­ed scrap­per had to take a pho­to of the game that nev­er was.


Since base­ball game hot dogs were out of the ques­tion for din­ner we decid­ed to take him to eat at “The Abbey” this is a quaint lit­tle restau­rant in Down­town Frisco. The build­ing was once a First Bap­tist Church. It was built in 1904 and served for 70 years as a meet­ing place for the church found­ed in 1902. It real­ly is neat lit­tle place to eat. Oh and as we are head­ing to the Abbey Ans­ley and her friend Erin notice the “Snow­cone Lady” is open. If you live in Frisco you know and love the snow­cone lady. She makes the best snow­cones and is the first sign that sum­mer is just around the cor­ner. So after din­ner we had to take David there to enjoy this Frisco treat. He will nev­er have anoth­er snow­cone like the one he had last night.


Well after we left the snow­cone lady I real­ized we did not get a pho­to at the Abbey so back we went. This explains the snow­cones every­one is eat­ing. The first pho­to has Ans­ley jump­ing think­ing she felt a bug in her hair when actu­al­ly it was just Alan putting his arm around her. I was so thank­ful she did­n’t scream caus­ing peo­ple to run out. The girl can­not stand bugs and has a scream that can shat­ter glass.



After show­ing David all the schools the girls have attend­ed and giv­ing him a quick tour of our city we head­ed home. And even though we got lost, made wrong turns, missed out on a base­ball game, back tracked to take for­got­ten pho­tos it was a won­der­ful evening. We were in the car laugh­ing and I still got to vis­it with my cousin that I do not see near­ly enough. The night real­ly did prove that the small stuff is all that mat­ters… sit­ting in a car and catch­ing up with my cousin.

If you made it this far. You real­ly are a loy­al blog read­er. Please leave me a com­ment and I will put you in for a draw­ing to receive a won­der­ful RAK.

Have a great day.
