I'm back, all rested and relaxed....

Sorry folks, I have been away from my blog for too long. The end of the school year then off for a nice vacation after that has kept me away. Phew! I'm so happy to be back rested and relaxed.

This week's Diva challenge was to create a tile reflecting "home". I live in southern VT (Vermont) and was vacationing in northern VT, in the Northeast Kingdom, on Lake Willoughby. What a beautiful place. I do love Vermont and I wanted to create a tile showing parts of VT:
Grass Border, Msst, Pokeleaf, Verdigogh, Sunray, Mooz*, Waves, and Splitzer , ahhh, and my snowflakes.
*Mooz I made up to show the cow patterns of our wonderful VT cows :)
I will show you more tiles later on this week, in the mean time, enjoy some Vermont pictures:

Lake Willoughby is the deepest lake in VT that is fully contained in the state. Here are some pics:

Calm morning looking south.

Beautiful mountains.

Son Cameron and the fish he caught.

Merganser family. Little ducklings were learning how to swim with their heads in the water watching for food.

Beautiful clear water & amazing rock layers

Farm up on the hillside. Our rented camp is in lower left of picture.

As you can see, I love this place.

I must be nuts. I'm involved with 2 challenges a week now. I am enjoying it though, even if it's keeping me up late at night.

Here's my Diva's challenge #73, using Bridgen:

And here is my zendala dare #8, using LOVE: Laced, Opus, Vitruvius, and Ennes:

Interesting stuff.
