21! I can't believe Brooke turned 21 this year. She has certainly turned into a beautiful young woman. I just love her!

For several weeks, I have watched this spider build and rebuild a web on our light pole. His tiny life and diligent rebuilding made me think rather deeply and inspired a scrapbook page. I will share that page real soon. Just today, I took this picture of him "resting" in the center of his newly rebuilt web. It's the biggest and best web yet! Go, Mr. Spider, go! (If you click the picture to make it bigger you will get a REAL close view of his underside. It's creepy, but I am so glad God put him here to remind of some things in my life.) *shivers* So, go ahead...click it! Eww!
I researched spiders on the "web"...aka internet. Ha ha This kind is in a category called orb weavers. They usually have poor vision and detect their prey by the vibration of the web when something lands on it. The silk of the web is sticky so it can catch and wrap its prey. By the way, I was totally creeped out looking up spiders on the internet. Even pictures of spiders make me wiggy. There are different orb weavers, but I have no idea which spider this one is. Anyone know? It's not the common yellow garden spider and I quit looking at pictures after a while. EWWWWWW! This little rabbit just made me giggle. In fact, all the rabbits were cute as a pickle!! There was one that was literally bigger than Riley! Now, that's a big rabbit!
Now, this rabbit thought a sip of water was lip-smacking good! How sweet is this!? Adorable!
We're going back to the fair tomorrow night for the tractor pull. I already decided since I've blown Weight Watchers points today, I am done with fair food. I will eat here before I go and maybe just get something to drink there. I'll take breaks from the tractors to browse the merchant buildings, talk to more animals and just watch people. We have another busy weekend ahead with my grandma's surprise birthday open house and church. I'll post more when I have a chance to exhale. I have several other pages to share, plus the special spider page, too. Thanks for stopping by!

The patterned paper is printed with a distressed edge. I mimicked that by sanding the edges of the photo, then inking it with white ink. Love how it really made a unique hazy frame around the photo. Letters are chipboard colored with craft ink. The only other materials are Going Gray cardstock, white gel pen and a journaling pen.

I will be back soon with oodles of ideas to share. I have finished THIRTEEN layouts since Sunday, plus made 50 Halloween cards on Saturday. Whew...my mojo is rockin'! Thank you, Lord for the inspiration! He gives me a great life to scrapbook about! :) Now, I just have to photograph and upload all those ideas and my blog will be hoppin' for a while. See you soon!
