I decided we had not made a boys bday card lately

I used this new EK Success punch called swiss cheese

but I think it looks like bubbles so I got it for water photos

Then I needed a girlie card :)

today's layouts have a couple techniques in them

this is a tag made with Tim Holtz inks

then I used my new sizzix machine & some nestabilities butterflies, I cut out the heart and used a cuttlebug embossing folder on it, then I outlined the swirls with glue and fun flocked it to match :) the sides

On the sides I applied scrapbooking glue on a stamp with a foam brush, stamped the picture then applied fun flock, it is like felt in a bottle :) and it is fun LOL!

I love everything about being a mom & wife

truly they are what I live for

occassionally I do wanna sell them as a lot :)

but there is not enough money in this world.

thanks for comin over today
see ya soon I hope :)

fun mountain water slides :)

Last summer I went with friends Pete & Diane out to Fun Mountain with all the kids.

Oh my it was too, too fun! We lost Zack on the first slide, so with my "OMG I lost my kid" heart attack out of the way quickly...we had the most awesome time after that...nothin like a day on the slides, a hot tub & a picnic in the sun to make for great memories!

I think I took 100 pics that day...any of them showing fun in their own way!

nice of you to drop by
thanks V

These are some pics of last summer.

It was a real hot 40

Nick was foolin around in the backyard with an empty water jug

he filled it with water from the hose and then dumped it on himself

had to be cold...but he sure didn't seem to mind :)

The second page is pics of the boys at the lake

we went to visit Victoria one afternoon

and she showed us what she just found

yep...a leech...LOL

The kids played with that thing all afternoon

party pontoon (2nd post for today)

Well we visited Wade & Lucy one weekend last summer

it was awesome

the kids went tubing

they shared watermelon & drinks

peed off the boat

yep can it get better?

Zack said "it can get better...if I can drive"

so Wade let him drive the boat...he was so flippin proud!

Nicholas enjoyed tubing way more than Zack

we were all stunned by that...look at him so stoked

Nick had an absolute fast & fabulous time on that water!
