Okay well it’s NOT officially fall yet . . . had another look at the calendar and autumn officially begins Tuesday, September 22 . . . hopefully I am putting all the correct dates on all the papers I am filing with the court . . . anyhooooooooooooooooo . . .
Speaking of this layout . . . it is not an original of mine . . . when I saw the papers I knew exactly what photo I wanted to feature and somewhere in my brain I remembered a layout I had seen that was perfect-it used these papers and had hand & machine sewing on it (two things that I love trying to put on some of my layouts) . . . if anyone out there in blogland knows who the original designer was . . . please please please let me know because I want to thank them and acknowledge their beautiful design . . .
Now back to that weekend in the bay area . . . we told our son that we would do whatever he wanted . . . so on Saturday we ended up at the Western States car show in Pleasanton, CA (got to love the bay area – everything is only 30 minutes away at the most via freeways) . . . 5 hours at a hot – very loud event . . . then it was back to San Jose and off to dinner at his favorite restaurant and a movie . . . “The Hangover” (very very very funny movie) . . . on Sunday we headed over to Campbell and stopped in at the “Psycho Donuts” shop for a mid morning snack (yes that really is the name of the donut shop – they have found a fun way to get you to eat donuts – I plan on doing a layout later about this unique shop) . . . after that we went to the Campbell farmers market . . . from there hubby & son went for coffee while I went and did a little shopping at the scrapbook store in Cupertino . . . hubby and I finally headed for home about 5 pm (another 4 hour drive) . . . it was a very busy weekend . . . but well worth it . . . BTW . . . here is a more current picture of the birthday boy . . .
P.S. . . this was not at the Pleasanton car show . . . this photo was taken at the Concours d’Elegance Gala here in Chico . . .
Well that’s all for now . . . thanks for stopping by and until next time . . . hugs . .
