Too Much Fun!

I’ve decided that I have too much fun playing on the computer. I love to start with a bunch of stuff and have it all come together. They aren't all that good but I enjoy it!

Thanks to Blog Designs By Dani I found Pixlr. It's a great photo editor. You can create projects or you can give images a retro vintage look. I love it!!! Dani also has tons of cute backgrounds and matching banners. Plus great information/tutorials on how to do different things yourself.

There are lots of pictures so beware!!!

This was a picture that I edited using Pixlr's Retro Vintage Effects.

This one was random. It's bright and still kind of pastel.

This one is meant to be patriotic.

The banner for Jessi's Blog!

One of my past banners. I love the colors in this one though I think 'My' is a little hard to read with the four color layers.

Cute black and green background. Could work for St. Patty's Day.

Banner for the family blog. It is the same paper and materials as the next one down.

Trapped By: Michael Northrop

This was a pretty good book. I think it could make an interesting movie. My only problem with the book was the ending. I wanted to know a little bit more about what happened after they were rescued and how the town faired after all of the snow stopped. Did it melt or did it remain for some time??
The day the blizzard started, no one knew that it was going to keep snowing for a week. That for those in its path, it would become not just a matter of keeping warm, but of staying alive....
Scotty and his friends Pete and Jason are among the last seven kids at their high school waiting to get picked up that day, and they soon realize that no one is coming for them. Still, it doesn't seem so bad to spend the night at school, especially when distractingly hot Krista and Julie are sleeping just down the hall. But then the power goes out, then the heat. The pipes freeze, and the roof shudders. As the days add up, the snow piles higher, and the empty halls grow colder and darker, the mounting pressure forces a devastating decision....

The Doctor's Daughter By: Amy Blizzard

This book was so cute!!! I loved it and would love to see it made into a movie.

Templeton, Missouri, is in desperate need of a doctor to treat the scarlet fever epidemic that has infected their town and claimed the life of their local doctor. Boston native Dr. John Carson is their only hope. Molded by a lifetime of pain and loss, John is impersonal and withdrawn, and treats symptoms instead of people. When he arrives in Templeton, he finds he must work with Sarah Bethel, the late doctor's daughter who has been treating the ill, and his staunch attitude is challenged. She is bright, caring, dedicated to her neighbors, and has a temper that matches his! He is mesmerized by the woman whose fiery spirit infuriates him and inherent compassion intrigues him. Will Sarah's kindness be enough to heal the scars of the past and allow John to open his heart and create a new future?

No One To Hear You Scream By: K.J. Dahlen

No One To Hear You Scream!! Just the title is amazing! I loved this book. It didn’t start out slow or really have any slow spots in it. Great job!!!

When a serial killer murders Sam Sebastian's wife, the New Orleans cop turns bounty hunter to track down the killer and administer justice. Joining him on his quest is FBI agent Cole Davidson, whom Sam soon finds is connected to the killer. As their journey takes them along the vast expanse of the Mississippi River, the investigation reveals that they are searching for a dark and troubled soul. The monster who killed Sam's wife has left a trail of blood in his wake, and it quickly becomes clear that he is adept at taking on other personas, including that of Sam's impromptu partner, Cole. 
As they close in on the killer, Sam questions what he might do once they meet face-to-face. Will he be able to keep his emotions in check, or will he eliminate the man who destroyed his life?
