Let's Capture These Sketches - #133

This is my take on Sketch 133 at Let's Capture These Sketches.  The pictures were of Gino and Arianna down at Miramar.  Gino was showing Arianna the F18 where he works.  Looks like they are both ready for flight!
Here is the sketch I used.  I would love to see what you create using the sketch.  Upload your creation here.

Solar Eclipse

Sad to say that I am just getting around to uploading pictures from my camera.  Last weekend we had the opportunity to view the solar eclipse.  I asked Patrick to take me down to Huntington Beach so we could view the eclipse and perhaps get some shots.  As we got closer, the marine layer was rolling in.  The marine layer was actually a blessing in disguise as it allowed us to actually view the eclipse without special glasses and I was able to get this great shot!

Bleeding Heart Flower

The spring plantings are coming along and I wanted to share a picture of one of my new flowers.  This is called the Bleeding Heart flower.  Isn't it unique!  I can't wait for the entire plant to be full of flowers.

St. Patrick's Day - 2012

This past St. Patrick's Day I told Patrick I wanted a shot of Jameson!  If you know me, I am not a drink - but rather a talker.  We met up with Gino and Bree at Bubba Gump's and I had a shot of Jameson.  After all, what is St. Patrick's Day without Irish Whiskey?  (I don't need to do that next St. Patrick's Day!) 

I used the sketch at PageMaps for this layout.

Let's Capture These Sketches - Sketch 131

It is time again for this weeks sketch revel at Let's Capture These Sketches.  This time it is Sketch 131.  I raided the scrap bin here and it seems to have pulled together nicely.  The picture is a little blurry as it is a snapshot of the preview screen at Disneyland's California Adventure - Tower of Terror ride.  Amara is big enough now to ride, and she loves it, but she still seems terrorized!! 

And here is the sketch.  I would love to see what you do with it.  And be sure to upload it back at Let's Capture These Sketches for a chance to win a prize.
