Happy Father's Day!

Just wanted to share a few pictures of my incredible, wonderful, loving and caring Father. For a beautiful tribute to my Dad, check out my my sister's blog. Love you Dad, you are THE BEST!!

Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme

Last week, Kellen and I planted a little balcony garden. I'm embarrassed to admit that I do not have a green thumb...at all. I'm awesome at killing plants. Luckily, Kellen is a master gardener and with his guidance, these little plants just might have a fighting chance.
 We went to the local  nursery and picked out -
~Strawberries
~Basil
~Banana and Bell Peppers
~Tomatoes
~Cilantro
~Oregano
~Dill
~ Lavender
~Lemon Thyme
~Mint
~Coriander

I have yet to kill any of them off.  In fact, this is what I found this morning. Awww...cute!

A few more pics of our little garden..

I thought it would be fun to make a few  quick and simple projects using paper and rub ons from Melissa Frances and adorable garden images from Cosmo Cricket. These little bags would be great to use as invitations for a neighborhood BBQ, garden party or picnic. Fill the bags with a few little treats and add the invite inside.

Here's another quick card using paper from Melissa Frances, Jenni Bowlin and Cosmo Cricket. Can you sense a bit of a theme here? Yep, strawberries. I must be a little over excited at the thought of that little strawberry out in our garden.
