Isn't that the sweetest smile ever!!?!? This is my lovely little boy, Riley. I was outside taking photos of my layouts and he grabbed me and asked me to take a photo of a bug. I told him I would rather take a photo of him. So he gave me a big smile. (I also took a photo of the bug for him to see) I just thought I would share.
I have two layouts to show you today. They were for the last two challenges at the Sketch-A-Thon at Sketches4all. The first one is a layout to remind me of my summer travel dramas! lol It is a photo of the blown tire on our RV during out trip to Oklahoma. I actually saved a piece of the tire tread that I found on the road to add to my layout. But have you ever tried to cut a steel belted radial tire?! So I peeled it down to this thin sliver that I have stapled on the page. Not quite the same effect but you get the drift. And I will definitely know what it is. It just doesn't show too well in the photo. I had a lot to write about so I hid the journaling tag.
My second layout is of a photo from last Halloween. I don't have many photos from last Halloween because I was in the hospital having surgery that weekend and got to come home on Halloween in the early evening. I hobbled in and made the kids smile for a photo but I didn't last long before I had to go lay back down. So it isn't the best photo.
How was your weekend?? I was fairly productive and did several scrappy projects (mostly DT projects that you will have to wait to see). I'm feeling oddly caught up so I must be missing something!!! LOL
This week my two older boys have picture day at school so I guess I need to find them a cute outfit. I did get their hair cut last week. I'm that Mom who loves super short hair on the boys and long hair on the girls. I'm not sure why. I do know I love to run my hand over the boys hair and feel how soft and bristly it feels. And I love to do different cute hair styles with the long hair. Unfortunately for me my older daughter doesn't like anything but a low ponytail...sigh.... I'm still hoping that my little girl will be girlie!! LOL She doesn't have much hair yet. It is pretty fine. I had it cut to above her shoulders that last time in hopes that it would start to thicken up! lol Maybe I should have had them shave it. LMAO
Two more weeks until I leave to go to Oklahoma. I'm flying there to get my mother and my aunt and drive my RV (which is already there) to Arkansas to the craft festivals. We start with a big one called War Eagle Fair. There are hundreds of craft festivals the week of October 12th - 16th in northwestern AR. Some are really big shows with hundreds of people selling their crafts. Every corner has a garage sale going on and the antique stores are open until midnight! My idea of HEAVEN!! We just have the best time! We have gone for the last 25 years! (we missed maybe 2 years) I'm a little worried about my 82 year old aunt this year because she is struggling with leukemia and starts back on chemo this week. The beauty of taking the RV is that even if she isn't feeling well she can come and do as little or as much as she wants. There is always the RV to go back and rest in. She can just spend the whole trip reading or sleeping if she wants.
Okay, that is enough for today. Hope you are having a wonderful Monday!! TGIM!
