Weekend is Almost Over

Hi guys,
How was your weekend??  We had a nice weekend here.  The weather is gorgeous, sunny and nice, so my kids spent most of the time outside playing.
(how do you like this outfit?! lol)
(there is so much ham here you could make a sandwich!! LOL)

My older son had a lacrosse game yesterday morning.  They didn't win but they really are getting better and better every day.  Their team is a brand new team and unfortunately the teams they are up against have all been playing for a couple of years.  It can be disheartening but the boys have really all had a great attitude about it so far.
 (my son is #1)

After the game the boys and I stopped by our local sporting goods store and then on to the Barnes and Noble book store.  I picked up a couple of magazines and books.   I'm afraid that after we went home I sat down and read for the rest of the day!  I only stopped to make dinner.  No scrapping for me either! ha 

Unfortunately, I didn't bother to notice that the book I was reading was the first book in a trilogy and the next book isn't coming out until September!  I was so upset when I finished reading it and everything was left up in the air.  I hate that!!  It would have been okay if I had been able to immediately start reading book number 2 but no such luck.  Grrrr  (ha)   I will have forgotten everything by the time the next one comes out.

I made this layout for Sketches4all.  They are having a March Sketch Layout challenge with a Nikki Sivils Get Well Soon Kit as a RAK.  There is still time for you to enter because the challenge doesn't end until March 31st.  You have to use the sketch and a "spring" theme.

The cool sketch is one that our very own DT member Kathleen made.  She really did a fab job on it right??  I kind of flipped it a bit but mostly stayed pretty true to the sketch.  

I made several flowers for it and just scattered them all over the layout.  I pulled out my newest obsession...the Sew Ribbon punch and added ribbon to the corners.  I stamped out a swirl on a couple of the corners of my photo mat.

I used an edge punch with hearts on one of the pattern paper layers.  And inked the edges of pretty much everything. lol

I love the paper I used from Little Yellow Bicycle -Saturdays collection.  What do you think?  Like it?

How are you are enjoying the extra hour of sun tonight??  Are you tired after losing that hour this morning.  How do you feel about daylight savings time??  Like it or hate it? 

If you haven't entered the Going Green challenge at Crafter's Companion...what are you waiting for!?!?!  LOL  Tomorrow there will be a new stamp giveaway posted on the Crafter's Companion USA Challenge Blog.  You should definitely go leave a comment and throw you name in the hate and try to win it. 

Okay, enough from me for today. Thanks for stopping by.

    OMG Did you watch Night of the Walking Dead??? EEEK I actually spent over an hour over at AMC walking dead blog reading up on all the theories and stuff, I had no idea it was based off of a comic book?? I have never actually read a comic book so it doesn't really change anything! Next week is the season finale and I am already sad thinking about the cliff hanger! And seriously I have scary dreams all night long after I watch it! LOL!!
