The Road Not Taken

Coffee of the Day - Cinnamon Hazelnut

Sorry I am sooooooo late getting my Doodle Beans post up today. My guys left a little bit ago on their big deer hunting adventure, and we have been all weekend getting them ready. whew..... what an adventure just getting them ready to go! :) so much stuff to wash, and pack, and prep, and check, and re-check, and run to the store again and again.... goodness me, I am plum worn out! but they will have a wonderful time in the mountains of the Allegheny Forest of western PA. about 2 or 3 dozen men show up at camp every year. then to top it off, our Jeep started leaking gas just within an hour of them getting ready to pull out. so David worked with Tyler and Mick to try to figure out what the problem was. yikes! but they are on their way and should be there within another hour or so. this leaves me and the pups almost a full week of crafting and coffee!!! :)

So here we go with my card.......

I love this peaceful sunset image that Randa has drawn. As soon as I saw it, I knew that I wanted to pair it with this portion of the Robert Frost poem, 'The Road Not Taken'. Thought it would be kinda neat to use my label maker to punch it out rather than print it on the compy (not to mention that Ryan spent all his spare time this weekend on the compy catching up with his friends before taking off to the WILDS where Facebook doesn't exist! grins! no time for mom to squeeze in......) My gorgeous Basic Grey Stella Ruby paper went perfectly with this serene atmosphere. the little flowers are Making Memories. added a skeleton leaf, vintage seam tape, and a wee bitty button.

See y'all in the morning! :)

this is so cool Jennifer! One of my favorite poems too! Have fun this week cause you'll probably have lots more laundry to do when they come back home!
