Fall Surprises!

Hi ya'll! What a morning! I am a killer!!! Yeah, you heard
me right....this morning as I was going to the store to get
a few things, I saw a little squirrel in the road, I slammed on
my brakes as I watched this little critter decide which way to go,
man, it happened so fast and the next thing I heard was SQUISH!
My heart went into my throat as I looked in the rear view mirror..
Yep, his little body laid squished in the road.... I kept saying, I'm a
KILLER....I think this is the first time I ever hit an animal before, yeah,
there were close calls, but NEVER did I hit one! I felt so bad. I pulled
over cause I had to get myself together. Then I was thinking what am
I gonna do...should I call the police and have them arrest
NOT.....hahaha So off I drove, but I couldn't stop thinking about that
poor little squirrel!!! Will that squish sound ever leave my mind????
I sure hope so! So that was my eventful morning and I hope that it will
NEVER happen to me again!I better get this butt to church so God
can forgive me for killing one of his

Have you guys seen Jazzy's new word art??? She tried something
different this time and I must say I am very impressed! If your into
heritage pages these will work beautifully. (Even if your not, have a look
they will go well with lots of stuff)

I haven't gotten around to making any layouts, cause I am out killing
squirrels at the moment. hahaha No seriously, I just haven't had the
time to make any the past few days, but hopefully this weekend,
sometime in between my nephew's 1st birthday party and going to
the Poconos to get some fall pics. So hop on over to Jazzy's Store and
pick them up and I do believe they are on sale at the moment....
gotta love a

Today I have a little fall freebie, something that I have been playing around
with. And I thought I would share with you guys. As you will all find out
I love swirls and play with them a lot! Hope you like it! There is one paper,
a swirl with leaves, a leaf and I tried my hands at a border. Here's the preview...

Well, I think that's it for today. I am going to try and have a quiet afternoon,
maybe read a book or something to get my mind of that poor little squirrel.
So have a great day ya'll! And be careful driving out
Chow for now!

Crops I know the feeling!!! I once ran a cat over that jumped out of the ditch!! I felt soooooo awful I couldn't get it out of my mind for a long time! But you will soon be ok.
Look at you girl!!!! Designing new things all the time. Great freebie!! You are good-and you just keep on amazing me with what you come up with. Keep it up! Heck I can't seem to keep up with my blog, much less get some pages made. Where am I going to find the time to make some freebies to offer too----oh I so want to give out some freebies. Hopefully soon things will settle down so I can do some fun things too.:) Talk to you soon.

Oh I know how awful you feel... I hit a possum once and got physically ill at the side of the road....and I they're not even cute. I felt so bad, but it's not your fault - it was the little critters time to go.

Thanks so much for the lovely gift. Your generosity is appreciated.

I'm sending out an alert to all the squirrels - just kidding!! I know how awful you must feel. Ron and I hit a deer and I cried for hours. Her eyes were so terrified at that last moment. But it's a few years later and I can't really recall that awful feeling - so it will get better, I promise, Croppie!

Love and hugs from Julie aka M&M

Hey Crops, I love your work, really nice pages. Thank you so much for sharing with us. I've been busy, and got a flu shot AND GOT THE FLU, I don't know why I even get them things, so I haven't been around much, have a lot of catching up to do, looking for all your beautiful work and end up finding out your after little bitty squirrels!! LOL
I hit an ugly old possum one time and thought I would get sick, tried to stop to go check on it, why, I don't know what I would have done with it when my brother who was with me said "It's just a possum, keep on going!" UGH!
