Sam's 9th Birthday

CTMH Retired & Stardust Papers, Stickease, Letter Stickers, SU BD Stamp, Copic Markers, Cricut Cartridge Graphically Speaking. What a cool Cartridge! Lots of fun stuff. I cut this 9 diecut header. Cutting set at 2 1/2" for a 12x12 page. You can die cut 1-10 any size depending on the Cricut Machine you have.
Edit in} The 9 header is all one piece. One of the neat die cuts on this cartridge. : )

Seeing that Sam's BD was in December I am finally getting caught up...Not. Sam asked for Wii Music. That's all he ever talked about. So for him it was a wish come true.
Anywoo, That's about it. Have a great day and thanks for stoppin by!

Cake Anyone?

Doesn't this look Yummy?!?
My friend Tracy is taking a Cake Decorating Class and she had to make 2 cakes, making those really hard flowers that you let dry on wax paper before you set on the cake. We went to Chuck E Cheese yesterday with her and her family for her sons BD Party. She brings this cake and said we could have it. Oh God No... I just had my blood work done. LOL
Isn't it just too pretty to eat?!? Thank You Tracy!!
I told her i would post her cake on my blog for the whole world to see. LOL She giggled and said... really.
So here it is. Lemon cake on the inside. She is NOT taking orders BTW.
I don't think i would ever take a cake decorating class, but she said it was about $170.00 for the starter kit if anyone is interested.

Well ya'll, enjoy your Saturday! Thanks for stoppin by!

CTMH Papers...Rustic Trail, Random Stamped Background Misc. Paws & Bones Stamp. Journaling Under Bone Mickey & Friends Cricut Cartridge. Photo Clips, Misc. Stickers & Buttons Twine.

I bought a new Point & Shoot Canon Camera yesterday. I needed something small to take to the Newsboys Concert in May.
I took these pics yesterday. Having my granddaughters 3 days a week, Meghan loves to sit with Toby. "I hold Toby Grammy" "Sure baby if he sits still long enough." He was just ready to take off.
Say Cheese

My boys are on Spring Break all next week. I'll have to take them out and entertain them. Maybe bowling. We haven't done that in a few months. I know they would love that!! Charlie is even thinking of taking a day off next week.
I'm hoping to have some craft time too.

Sometime last year I was in one of those moods that I just wanted to be left alone for a little bit. So I went up to my scraproom and locked the door. Just needed some piece & quiet for a bit. Well Sam, creative mind?, trying to be funny, or just wanted to get his point across? Slid a note under the door that read... "Let me in." OMG I laughed out loud. That was the end of my quiet time. I kept that little piece of paper, It's hanging on my scraproom wall. I should have taken his picture right than and their and made a page.

Anyway i better get movin here. Charlie is on his way home and he has to work 8 hours tomorrow. Geesh We all need a break!

Thanks for stoppin by & have a great week end!

Stamp~ Tilda, Colored and Cut Out, Papers CTMH, Basic Grey Design Papers Bittersweet, SU Scallop Punch, Bling, CTMH Rub ons, Pink Gel Pen, Copic Markers.

I love these design papers from Basic Grey. I've seen them used by other bloggin friends and had to order me some. Love the hearts!
Just a family day here today. We made a Wal-Mart run this morning. No church. We just hung out together. Charlie is doing a few things around the house. Spending time with boys is a no brainer. He has been ordering train stuff { cars & tracks} off the Internet and setting it up in the basement on a painted plywood table he built. They are enjoying doing that together. I get a little play time than.
He's still working long hours plus some Saturday's. But we're hoping there will be a break soon with his job. Maybe by June-July. It would still be the long drive for him 75 miles one way, but the hours would be cut. 4 - 10 hour days. And 3 days off. YES!! I'm so thankful that he has a job. But it's been crazy here.
Well I'm gonna get some stuff done myself. My scraproom is a mess, I need to clean it up.

Have a great day and thanks for stoppin by. I'll be back soon.

Hello There

Well I've got some exciting news. Today I was able to get Concert Tickets to see the The Newsboys . They'll be in our area Sunday May 3rd. An hours drive. I have only seen them once before, at our local Fair a few years ago. I'm so excited. Charlie & I have 2nd row seats. not cheap but worth it. My boys would have loved to go too. {Sorry boys not this time.} They are a Christian Alternative Rock Group. I love them!! I hope Peter will be singing with them at this concert. {see the link}
Flash back} Way back in my party days 1980 or so, I was a huge Jethro Tull fan. I had every album they put out. Seen them in concert 5 times, even wrote to Ian Anderson. LOL Yeah I was a groupie.
At one of his concerts I was able to squeeze my way up to the front row. Well, ya know with all the excitement and jumping going on I managed to loose my pocket camera in the front row. Ugh.... Someone has some awesome pictures.

Well I just wanted to check in here and share my happy Newsboys news. :) And let ya know I'm doing much better than I was when i posted a few days ago. {Sorry, I deleted the posts} I pretty much wear my heart on my sleeve. {transparent} What you see is what you get. So, with that being said. Thanks again for stoppin by, your comments and e mails, I appreciated them so much. It's what makes bloggin fun!!
Have a Blessed Weekend.
I'm hoping to be back with a card or something soon.

Our Mini Trip

Here are some pictures of our little trip to the WI Dell last week. We plan on doing it again in the summer when it's warmer, but we'll probably go to the Wilderness Territory. It's much bigger. Enjoy!

This is the indoor water park. Inside it's water tubes everywhere, pools and a hot tub. How fun! Our hotel was way to the right in another building. We had to walk at least a 1/4 a mile underground to get to the park.

Micah getting across to the other side.

These were so fun, screamed all the way down.

Charlie and the boys. Sam & Micah insisted on wearing their shirts in the water. Gee i wonder why? : )

Me and the boys.

Taking the lazy river on tubes.

Just a view.

This picture didn't turn out to well. My battery was going dead and slowed down the shutter speed.

I couldn't resist jumping in this real wild life exhibit. It was in the basement on our way to the water park. Anyone who knows me well, knows i would do something crazy like that... I'm so glad i didn't get caught. LOL ... My hubby just smiles.

Thanks for stoppin and letting me share!

Celebrate Card

Card inspired from a magazine. CTMH Perfect Day Papers, CS, Misc Stamps, Flowers, Sewing Machine, Brads, Embossing Pen, Clear Embossing Powder, Heat Embossed, Copic Markers.

We definitely had a great time in the Dells. It went too fast. I just wished it was warmer. I'll post some pics at a later date. We plan on going back in the summer when we can hit the bigger outdoor water parks/wave pools. Charlie wants to camp. I don't think so, I'm not into spiders and bugs. Waking up to a daddy long legs in your face is not my idea of a fun vacation. Been there done that. Yikes

Have a great week! Thanks for stoppin!
