These last ones I made for All about Scrapbooks. I used lots of American Crafts Letterbox and 1 sheet of AC's new Heatwave (the clouds) on these... another 2-pager and I remain too lazy to take a full picture...(blush)
It never fails. I mean NEVER. Donk leaves for an extended period of time and all he** breaks loose. I hate to jinx myself, but it never fails. Patrick left for this deployment on Monday. On said Monday, within hours I received word that we (read I) would need to find a new house and move two months before Patrick is due to return home from parts unknown. A short while later, the youngest one, we have deemed "Puppy" got his hand closed in a locked door. He screamed in unbearable agony as we scurried for that silly little "key" one uses to jimmy open locked bedroom doors.
That was day numero uno. It's a great start, no?!?? Someone, who shall remain nameless (but her 7th birthday is today) was crafting in the kids bathroom (don't ask) and left roughly 6,493 raspberry pink sequins on said bathroom floor. A certain momma was a tad ticked and left the silly little "key" on the counter after starting the bath water and picking up said sequins. Said mother (yep, I'm a bit overdoing the said, huh) shut the locked door (to keep curious toddlers from taking a little unsupervised swim) behind her. Yep, locked bathroom with tub filling. On the plus side, had I NOT done this, I would never have known I could take off a door knob before the bath water begins flooding our house.
Ok, the week is starting to look up now. Despite two sick kids, I find out I've gotten a reprieve on the solo move. Phew... On Thursday I had a run-in with the middle schooler who was a tenant in our rental home until all he** broke loose there. Unfortunately, he must have gotten the wrong side of the story. We'll just say THAT wasn't pretty.
Yesterday was Friday & things are looking up again. My folks, the Snowbirds are stopping by on their way back to sunny, warm NW Indiana. Always nice to share my brood with people who love them as much as Patrick & I do, so it HAS to be a good day!
I'll leave you with a few pictures from the most amazing birthday party I've ever seen...
