Finally Sharing....

...Mason's Birthday...I know I say this every can they already be a year older? ...but can Mason already be 6 years old? ...we started the day off by getting a hair cut and he was in much need of one...and while Ben was getting his done...Mason and I just went out front and he let me take his was HOT and SUNNY so we didn't spend too much time out there because...well it just was too HOT and SUNNY...and Mason just doesn't like the sun getting in his eyes! lol So this is what I got...I guess I'll take it :)

...we waited for Stuart to get off of work and then we headed out to the movies...and then after that we went to dinner :)

...on Saturday we had Mason's Birthday party...we invited his friends over and since its been sooooo HOT...we had a couple Slip-n-Slides and Snow Cones...the kids had so much fun!

...Mason has been on a Toy Story every thing had to be Toy was a fun day! I had every intention of making the Mr. Potato Head Cake Pops but at the last minute Mason changed his mind...and I have to admit...I was so thankful...because I just wasn't up to all that work so making these cupcakes was so much easier for me...and they sure were YUMMY!

Sketch Friday...and...

It's Friday...that means it's time for a new LO and sketch. Today's sketch is brought to you by sure to see what everyone else did at Let'sCaptureTheseSketches.
...and my take on the sketch...this is MORRIS our cat...he has many names...many times he is referred to as MORDI Mort! lol These papers are by Piggy Tales and they worked perfectly for this LO !
...and for the "AND" part of my title...I also recently made these cards I just haven't had time to share them...and this one is my favorite! I haven't had a favorite in a long fact I needed to make a card for someone and I intended to give them this one...but I liked it so much that when I was done...I couldn't give it away and had to make another :)

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a wonderful weekend planned! We will be busy with Mason's Birthday Party - I'll be back to share pictures later :)

CARDS cards and MORE cards

Thought I might go ahead and share these now or I may never share them - these days so much gets left unshared if I just don't do it when I have a moment... thanks for taking a peek!

Mason turns 6

I'm just not sure how this can be...we got up this morning...and one of the first things we did we went out and got a haircut...and then went and picked out a birthday present...then before we knew it the day was half over...

...for an afternoon snack his very special aunt had brought over a very special cookie monster :D

...well we are off to the movies and finish celebrating his special day!

Its a sad day :( a friend says goodbye to a loved one...I made these cards for her and her took me most of the day to make them because I couldn't stay focused long enough to get them made...but I finally finished them. I hope they can bring them a little bit of comfort during this difficult time...I still have one more to make...

..these last few days I have had the hardest time staying focused let alone being able to think clearly - I hope whatever is going on passes quickly...I don't like feeling like this...I am so tired all the time...I barely feel like I'm awake enough to function and make it through the day.

It's one of those days...

...were nothing is going right...AT ALL!!! When I woke up this morning...I knew I should have just went back to bed but I didn' far today...the only thing that has worked out was my blood draw...they actually got some when they poked me! Now my morning meeting didn't go well at all...and just now when I sat down to send my Bo Bunny Design Team Submission...that came back to me seems that I have been tagged as SPAM...and its going to take 48 hours or more for that little problem to be taken care of...evidently, I receive or send 50 or more emails in an hour...I tried to assure my husband that wasn't true lol...for that to happen I would have to be at the computer all the time and I assure you all I am NOT at the computer that much! ...the other day I sat down and to keep my mind off of my parents travelling I worked on my submission for the Bo Bunny DT it is! I just LOVE how it turned out and I am happy to share it with all of you :D

...ok if you haven't had a chance to use some BoBunny you really need to get some...its and it really puts you in a GOOD MOOD! Good Luck to everyone who has tried out...can't wait too see who makes the team!
