A rather uneventful day here. I am trying to blog my way thru an intense chocolate craving so bare with me. I may get snarky.....lol. It's been pretty quiet here today actually. Steven spent the night with a friend and they went to Cherokee NC today and spent all day wandering the shops.....grrrrrrr! I would LOVE to have went along!!! Jacob was out making a little spending money, which of course, he immediately spent. BUT at least he spent it on clothes...so I'm not going to complain a lot :) And all I have done today is sleep and scrap!
When I went to take some pix of my projects I found the CUTEST pix on my camera!!! I couldn't find my large SD card so I had to settle for what I could come up with.....and just look at these...taken earlier in the year of Jacob and Jesse napping together on the couch.....awwwww :)
And this past week Jesse lost a tooth!!! He is already hard at work wiggling the next loose one.....we, will be lucky if he doesn't pull out every tooth in his head because the tooth fairy left him $3. Must e inflation cuz I remember being lucky to get a quarter!!!
Ok, I have 3 projects to share with you :) I made a couple of cards even...something I haven't done in a long time!!!
First one is actually for a sketch challenge at Got Sketch? The sketch is so cute!!! When I seen it I knew I would try it!!! I stayed true to the sketch more or less but this would be adorable flipped too!!
I chose to create a Birthday Card using Jillibean Soups Spotted Owl Soup since I already had it out when creating the LO for Lasting Moments "Recycle" challenge.
This one is just for my own amusement. I fell absolutely in love with this little bit from Echo Park's Playground......and this card is tiny.....just 4 x 4. Perfect for a quick hello or thank you note or even for using as a gift tag.
Some of you may know that Scrapbook Challenges is having a whopper of a blog hop this holiday weekend. If you haven't checked it out yet you really oughta! Prizes are involved!!!! Does that get your attention? They are also giving away a special RAK to someone who joins this weekend! So if you AREN'T a member of their great scrapbooking community you can find them here......and if you sigh up tell them you heard about em from lil ol me and we could both be winners :)
In addition to the blog hop they have this sketch challenge......I am just crazy about banners right now and I have been really waiting for the right time to scrap these photos......I have had this collection (4rth/DC) from Reminisce for quite a while and couldn't figure out where I had put it....lol. I hide things from myself ALL the time and it just irritates the crap out of me!!! I think it was fate that helped me find it this weekend of all weekends!!!! And what better collection to scrap a couple of photos from Jacobs NJROTC awards banquet a couple of months ago :):):) First the sketch.....
I'll be taking tomorrow off to spend with my family. I hope everyone has a safe and happy July 4rth!!!
