Sketch LO & Doggy Want a Bone?

52 Sketches #38

Products Used~ CTMH CS & Retired DP, Chipboard Die Cuts/Stickers, Foam Glitter Letters, Plastic Flowers Hobby Lobby~Bone Stamp & cut out, Chocolate Ink, SU Border Punch, Hole punch.

I love the sketch! It worked well for the pictures i had of Cailyn trying to climb and sit on the dog. He could have cared less as long as he could chew on her baby toy. He loves the kids!

Cailyn loved to walk around with Toby's rawhide bone. Yikes... I was so stuck on a title for this page. I had it half way done and showed to my hubby and asked him what i should title it? he says... "Doggy want a bone"? All though Cailyn was only 14 months old at the time and couldn't really talk then. Maybe she was thinking it. hahaha. I just thought it was a cute pic of her.

All is well here. Hope you all had a nice weekend!

Three Columns...

I have wanted to do this in like... Forever. It gives me more room to post pictures, and some of my favorite stuff. I've gotten instructions many times from different sites but they didn't seem clear enough for me to want to tackle it.. in fear of destroying my blog i kept putting it off. Well, my friend Jena {thanks Jena} sent me the link to change it to 3 columns. {awesome site}
If you're interested and want to tackle this, it's easier then i thought it would be. {deep breath} After you finish you will need to "Adjust your Margins" On the side bar on the right there are links for instructions to do that, depending on you layout/codes. I choose the "layout" link. It matched my codes.
Not a whole lot planned for today, off & on rain day.
Anywhoo Have a great weekend whatever you're doing! Thank you for your sweet comments!

Slide Sketch & Card

I don't do many sketches at all. I should, they're fun!, and they seem to work for me if i have the right photo. I think this one worked well for this sketch.
I'm happy with the way it turned out. :) Meghan already came down the slide and was waiting for Cailyn. All i ever hear from Meghan is.. "I do it myself" I think my boys said the same thing. It's that Independent stage they all go thorough.

With having 2 blogs going it's hard to keep track of what i post on one, and what i post on the other. My "You Go Girl" blog is mainly my progress about getting fit. Making myself accountable to "Keep Movin" Well I have some exciting news. I got a treadmill last week, I've been on it a few times. With winter soon approaching It'll be great to stay active over the winter.
Anyhoo, I need to start my laundry, It's a never ending job.

Here's what's left...

Charlie pulled out what was left of the veggies this weekend. We'll be canning these tomatoes. Some were a little strange looking.
Between putting on Drums, Shocks, Struts & a Drive Shaft on my van Saturday. I was the goofer. I wore my Pedometer throughout the day and put on 4.97 miles in 2.34 hours. Just running errands.
It took him about 8 hours to complete the repairs. Only so many hours in a day. Hoping that daylight would hold out till the van was fixed. I'm so thankful he knows how to do all that.

These little tomatoes cracked me up when we took them out of the garden. A little deformed but eatable...Meet "Tanya & Tom"
I had some girly google eyes among my stash. Couldn't resist playing. It doesn't always have to be with stamps & paper. Right? LOL but I do think they need some hair or something. Anyhoo, it was fun, : ) my kids got a kick out of it.

Not much else going on. Hope you all had a great weekend! Thanks for stoppin by!

Pool Pinata Party

Products Used~CTMH Stardust Papers/Stickease, Cut out stars, CTMH Stamp Set Posterboard Alphabet{ Lg red letters} Misc Sticker Letters/ Journal Sheet
My kids wanted a pool pinata party at the end of summer. With Sam being a December baby, he never gets to have a summer party. Well, we had one right before school started in August. They invited a few of their friends and had a blast. It was 3 hours of mad ciaos with all those boys. :) JK ... My daughter and 2 granddaughters were here to just to balance out the mix. I would definitely do it again though!

I thought this was so cute. Micah & his friend Emilion putting on pout faces because they had to bust open the Pinata.

Meghan {3} had the 1st swing. See the look on her face. She was trying to use force. {click on image}
It's Monday, not a very productive day for me. Just a blah day. Do you have those?
Anyhoo thanks so much for the warm welcome back to CTMH. The 7 months off was refreshing, but I'm happy to be back!
