Before I get anywhere here... and now that Blogger is cooperating... I need to share the birthday card made for me by my sweetie! I have been so frustrated not being able to post it for DAYS now... and of course Miles keeps visiting to see if it's up!

Yesterday was loads of fun and a learning curve for me. I spent the day at the Learning Center and I took Jeanne, one of our students, out and gave my camera a good workout. The weather cooperated and I managed to get some good shots that I could work with. While I was shooting we were visited by a squirrel who was angry at us for taking over his spot - so he got his portrait taken as well.

In all, I am very happy with how the photos, and subsequent layouts turned out! If you like the Layout that I made using Kristin's soft, sumptuous kits (a bday prezzy for me... THANKS K!)... they can be found at A CHERRY ON TOP



Save Those Seeds!

When you cook squash, don't throw the seeds away! They make a great snack if you toast them. To make, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Scoop out the seeds and pat dry. Toss with extra virgin olive oil to coat, and season with coarse salt. Spread on a rimmed baking sheet and bake 12 to 15 mins, until golden and crisp. Store in an airtight container at room temp for up to 3 days!
