EEEK!!! A whole week has passed?

School is kicking my tail.....and I am not even a student!!!!  Today is gonna be a fairly short n sweet post.  We have some celebrating to do ........ because it's Jesse's birthday!!! My sweet baby boy has turned 7 years old!!!! Yeah....I had him when I was like, 13!!! I  dunno who the heck these other kids are who keep calling me mom......they followed me home one day and, well, there ya have it!!!

Spent the better part of the morning getting school shoes for a couple of the boys and picking up some last minute birthday party stuff....we are going to have a cookout and it will be fabulous even tho it's 100 degrees!!!  Before I share a completed project with's the birthday boy!!
LOL......yeah he doesn't look happy but it's because the sun is in his eyes and the poor lil guy has a wicked sinus infection right now and the sun was really hurting his head and eyes!!!  And ignore the clutter on my patio...I do have children ya know.....and they were having a chair match or something earlier.....

OK....remember that Halloween mini I shared a week or so back? I finished it!!!! Ton's of photos comin's the front :)
The back :)

There ya have it....excuse the shoddy photography......I didn't really feel up to editing all of those photos.....lazy, lazy, lazy!!!!

I used MOSTLY Echo Park but also goodies from Glitz, American Crafts, Reminisce and K and Co.  And LOTS of scrap ribbon and ric rac from my stash.
