Snap It Up Saturday! Happy Birthday Bundle!

Hello Friends!
I'm sorry to say that I missed last week's Snap it Up Saturday Post. We have been so busy around here that I just didn't have the time to get it together. We spent the weekend traveling and running all over the place and this week has been much of the same. But now we are back to normal, and this week's bundle is a biggie!

Last Wednesday, my daughter and I made our pilgrimage to the great state of Louisiana. I am originally from New Orleans and my brother still lives in North Louisiana (Rayville)  where my grandparents previously lived. I hadn't seen him or my nieces and nephews in two years. How could I have stayed away any longer? After a great visit, and a fiasco with a bad tire, we finally made our way out to the saddest place in the state. The cemetery where my dad is buried. It has been ten years but it still just tears me up inside knowing he's not here anymore. My little one grabbed the iPad as we were leaving and snapped a few shots of the landscape. It's such a beautiful and peaceful area out there, I just can't bear to stay more than a few minutes at a time. I just sat down and took a look at a few of them and I thought I would share one.

Yep, that's corn as far as the eye can see and not a mountain in sight. A stark contrast to the landscape here in North Georgia.

Saturday, we made a speedy trip back home...on a spare tire and made it back late that evening. Then I had to prepare for another trip...this one being a whole lot more fun! My husband and I headed south to Atlanta for a concert--Brad Paisley to be exact! We bought each other tickets for Mother's/Father's Day. We had decent seats but boy did we get a surprise. Right when Brad Paisley hit the stage, a security guard approached us and handed us TWO PIT PASSES!! Free of Charge! They found out my birthday was this week...I wonder how? So we ended up FRONT ROW and it was fantastic! Oh yes...this girl touched Brad Paisley's boot!  Here's a snappy of just how close we got.

And then even more fun..My birthday landed today and I turned 30. Ugh...the decade that was my 20s is now past. But I have to say, I did accomplish a lot. College, marriage, teaching, a new baby, and so many more events have decorated the past ten years, so I can't wait to see what the next ten bring.

And now that you have gotten to hear me ramble a bit, it is time for your Birthday gift! Yep, I'm giving you one too! A larger set than normal, I'm trying to make up for missing last week. This is a set of 10 fun borders for use in your commercial documents, all bright and cheery, and waiting for your cover pages. I hope you like them!
