Photo A Day

Tracey over at Scrap Lovers has proposed we do a photo a day to improve our photography skills and it sounds like an excellent idea to me. Now, I will not be posting a photo on this blog every day. I will probably do it once per week. But, the photo from yesterday I thought was way too cute to wait.

This picture is of a rescued kitten that was almost starved. He was absolutely skin and bones. Probably the only reason he was still alive when we got him was his fiery spirit. Well, Tex loves to sit on my printer and watch me work.....but last night....well just look at the photo!


BTW...there is a story behind his name. When we would feed the cats outside, he would growl and slap at the cats that were 3 times his size. I kept making the statement that he had some balls as big as Texas to be slapping and spitting at the large cats we had outside. So, my husband said he should be named, Tex....short for Texas....of course!

Hope you enjoyed the photo and will leave some love to let me know you stopped by! Until next time!!

Don't You Just LOVE Challenges?

Well Tracey over at Scrap Lover's posed a blog challenge for me to post on my blog using the word LOVE in the title. I thought...what in the world would I write that required me to use the word LOVE in my title and it hit me.....LOVE of challenges.

I just plain love challenges....I think that is why I love all the on-line crops soooo much. It is the only explanation.

My previous post was about just one of the three on-line crops that I participated in over this past weekend. It was a good thing I didn't bring any work home with me. Because I didn't have any time to work...I was way too busy doing challenges.

Speaking of challenges......Making Memories For You still has the Survivor contest going on and Challenge #5 ends tomorrow at noon. I can't wait to see who gets their flame put out and who continues on to the next Challenge. This has been one exciting contest even though I got eliminated early (round 2).

Come on and drop by Making Memories For will enjoy the people there and have a lot of fun!

Signing off for now! Please leave me some love to let me know you stopped by!!!
