Squirrel LOVE for ReneaBouquets

Good Morning everyone!  Can you beleive that September is here already?  I can't!  Both Anne and Katie are back to doing school work, and things are settling down for fall.  But we don't have fall weather quite yet as it is very hot and humid today.

And I have very exciting news!  Renea of ReneaBouquets asked me to be a guest designer for her for the month of September.  I was very honored and happy to say "yes!"

And the best part was that I got to do some shopping in her shops that are online and wow!  You wouldn't believe the beautiful items you can find there.  Here are the links:

ReneaBouquets Shop: http://www.Reneabouquets.com
ReneaBouquets ETSY Shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/Reneabouquets
ReneaBouquets Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/ReneabouquetsEtsyShop

And I would be remiss if I didn't share her blog link, too, HERE!

So without any further ado, I will share the layout that I made using some of her beatuiful hand-made flowers.  I also used photos that I took on 7/5/14 at a friend's wonderful picnic.  At the picnic, we decided to have a little "Squirrel Love," and here is the final result.  I really enjoyed using some of the beautiful flowers that I purchased at Renea's shop!!!!

And some different views and close-ups:

You can see the flowers that I purchased at ReneaBouquets ETSY shop here!

And here are some more photos that I took at the picnic:

Here is the squirrel who started it all:

I have more photos from that picnic to share with you during this month and  I have lots of scrapbook pages to share using more of Renea's beautiful hand-made items!  So . . . . stay tuned!!

Happy September everyone!!!

HUGS to all!

  20. Hello Sharon,
    So happy to see you here and your beautiful layout. Congrats on being a guest designer this month, YAY!! Can't wait to see more layouts by you. Love the pictures from your picnic, I never get enough at ours, everyone is too busy.

    I can't believe its September already either, we had the fastest weirdest summer's ever. Kids are doing good at school and I'm glad to back in routine again, YAY! It is very hot and humid here too, only bad part of the kids being in school, we could be going swimming.
    Thanks so much for your visit and comment, I was going to check in on you as it's been too long from last visit. Hope all is well with your mom. My dad is slowly getting stronger but wishing it was faster, he's getting pretty sad about it. All this great golf weather and he can't go out and enjoy it.
    I have been watching the Middle too and laughing. The new season starts on the 24th, YAY! Hope it will still be good, I need those laughs by Wednesday night.
    Take care dear friend, I will be posting something new in a few minutes and you might enjoy it.
    Hugs and love and prayers for everybody.
