MDS Monday 6/27

It's time for MDS Monday!  Our assignment for this week was to do a Summer Fun page.  When I think of Summer, I always think of time spent at my different grandparent's houses.   Each was my favorite in different ways.  Of course, Mama's house had the lure of the lake.  It's located in Lakehills, Texas in the Hill Country outside of San Antonio.  The lake is Medina Lake.  It is beautiful!  Here's my scrapbook page for this week:

Amid the concern for my Sister this week, God brought us a little gift to remind us of the Hope of New Life.

Our nephew, Will and his wife, Lindsey had a precious baby boy on Wednesday and this is to welcome him!!
He's small but holding his own!  Welcome, Cohen!  God bless you!

As always, you can see the links to all the designers over at the UDI Blog or just follow the link at the bottom of this post.
