I'm lost in my backyard...

The past week has been crazy at my house. We are in the beginning stages of crafting our backyard into a livable place. It's slow going because we've been forced to do most of the digging and "forming"ourselves; but there is progress (otherwise I would have given up by now!)

Anyhow, I thought I would share two pics with you.

Here is my scrap table...
It's not easy for me to work in this mess. I was one of those university gals who cleaned my room spotless before beginning to study for an exam...get all the distractions out of the way first!

And, after a bit of digging I found this...
This is the LO that I started working on last Wednesday in the hopes of showing you by the weekend.

Yup, it's not done yet. I am hoping to find the time to dig into the fun Sausan paper tonight!

So, let's hope I find the energy tonight after digging in my yard all night (our sun sets at 10:45pm here in the summer, not conducive to calling it quits outside early and settling into my cozy corner for some "me" time!)

...let's hope the shovel or wheelbarrow take a turn for the worse!

It has been such a tough week for the family....I just have not been able to put a thought together to scrapbook...but hubby is deep sea fishing today and maybe I can sit down and go through the mess on my desk!!!!! Have fun playing :) in the yard!!!!

Well good luck with your backyard Camille...although I must admit that it doesn't really sound appealing..I'd rather clean my desk (If you know my desk you'd know that this is a really heavy task..) and scrap :)Oh and of course I'd love to see what you are coming up with!

hope your yard is coming along well!
