How many played tag as a kid?
My 7 year old has discovered the joys of playing tag this year.....and wants his poor, fat, out of shape mommy to play with him. Needless to say, I spend LOTS of time being it.....lol. I had to run Jacob and Steven to meet the bus at school (today was a day off here) for a NJROTC Drill meet at another school.....no word yet on if or how they placed! And when we got back Jesse wanted to play tag. I hadn't had coffee yet and my meds hadn't kicked in so I was doing well just to walk.....it's hell getting old!!! I told him to wait til my meds kicked in and my muscles weren't so stiff......
He looked amazed......"You have muscles??????"
Um, yeah....under these layers and pounds of fat I do......otherwise I couldn't move at all.
It's taken him all day to wrap his head around that concept.....lol.
I had to dodge raindrops and cloud cover here to get a photo......but I am persistent if nothing else :)
I decided to play along with Scrapbookers Anonymous today......they are fast becoming one of my favorite scrappy hangouts! Some super fun challenges!! This one is a mini challenge....and the theme is tags!!! Create a tag, use a tag, tag someone upside the noggin.....it's all good :) Now, I actually created this tag a couple of nights ago......I had some scrap bits that I really wanted to use up....better to use on a cute project than to toss in the trash, right? So......using a mixture of several companies product, some MME, MLS,Paper Studio, EP and who knows what else......I created a cute tag......and was really unsure what I was going to do with it.....lol. I thought I could make about 30 more and use for treat bags for Halloween for Jesse's class. And then I thought....how cute would it be to make several and make a banner out for them for the holiday??? THEN I was blog hopping this morning and came across this SUPER cute card
Lea at Lea's Cupcakes & Sunshine (thanks Lea......lol) Her blog is AMAZING and I may just steal every idea she has posted.....lol. Mine is a bit different but the inspo is there and very evident I think....just a lot brighter....lol.
And I really hope Lea doesn't mind :) She truly is sooo talented and her work is just so inspiring to me....she is officially my new scrappy crush.....now she can feel awkward......lol.
Thanks for looking!!!
