I'm melting.... and other hot topics

I'm melting...I'm melting!!!

That's what it feels like around here. 100 degree heat with an even higher heat index. I take comfort in knowing that cooler weather is (hopefully) just a few weeks away. Speaking of hot stuff - I was a crop last night and one of the girls was telling me about a fun tour of the Tabasco factory at Avery Island, South of Lafayette. I think we'll take a little weekend trip down there when it cools off. I'm all for a fun South Louisiana road trip. (but only when the weather cools down).

Here are a few creations with some hot new Piggy Tales CHA Summer releases. The first is from a Spring trip to New Orleans. The papers are from Piggy Tales "Peter, Peter, Pumpkin Eater" Paper collection. (Don't you just love that name?)

The next one is done with the collection called "Little Miss Muffett". So soft and girly - as the name implies.

And speaking of heat.... how about a Christmas page? Seriously. The photos were taken about 9 days before Christmas at a Winter Wonderland day at a local church. They had a snow machine and penned in areas for the small ones to "play" in the snow. Only the snow was melting so fast it was rock hard and difficult for Arielle to actually pick it up. But really, it was a cool idea to do and the first time she's ever seen "snow" even tho it wasn't real snow. Don't you feel for Rudolph and Frosty in those outfits? You just KNOW they were hot. The original title to this page was going to be "Deep South Christmas". LOL

and this is what we have to look forward to for the next several days: 100+ temperatures. The weather website has a map of "heat alerts", which I'm not sure what the purpose is unless its for people that don't know it's super hot outside. At least you know not to bring a sweater to a garden wedding by the river.
