Boys are mean!

Well, not ALL boys. Some boys grow up to be pretty nice fellows who will engage their kids in quiet games so mama, who has a killer headache, can rest for a bit...and then hop online for a moment to update her blog. THOSE boys are wonderful. :)

Here is my DT application layout - it's 12x12 uses pretty much the same supplies as the other project. Bazzill card stock, KaiserCraft designer paper, Staz-on ink, I die cut the letters with my Cuttlebug, and I used SU! card stock for the letters and journaling, and some SU! stamps (from the Priceless set - an absolute staple for me!). All the mini flowers and the large flowers on these projects were cut freehand - thank goodness for my Paper Snips!

That's my adorable niece several years ago. I'm odd, I guess, but I just love pictures of mad or sad kids. Well, I like pictures that show a range of emotions, and pics that capture a tantrum or incredibly pouty mood - well, that's part of that child so I like to have those moments saved along with all the happy times.

Well, today we are riding out this ugly weather from Edouard (and thanking God that it's not as bad as they thought it would be). So, I'm going to get back to my kiddos...they are upstairs putting daddy in their "zoo" and I don't think he's quite ready to be a monkey! :D Happy crafting!

Oh my, this is just the most adorable scrapbook page I think I've ever seen! Holy cow!

And, sooooo glad all was ok with Edouard.... you should have seen the chaos around here the day before... there wasn't any gas anywhere to be had, and no food on the grocery shelves... and bumper to bumper traffic of people evacuating! Ak!
