My husband loves tools, so Collin and Isabel wanted to make him a tool belt card. I got the cutfile from this site: http://ruelysicreativecards.blogspot.com/

Get up (early...because Isabel does) and get showered and ready for the day
Feed the kids and do a Bible story with them
Sit with Isabel to do some preschool work (I had planned on 30 minutes for this, but it is taking more like an hour or two)
Then do some work with Collin (nope, can't do them at the same time...he interrupts and tells her the answers)
Then straighten the kitchen and WHOA! is it time to make lunch already? Seriously?
Clean a bit and work on stuff for church....settle fights
Go swimming/or play/or watch a video/or read some books
Now time to make dinner
Clean up from dinner
Play some more
What, Billy? Spend time with you? But I haven't sat down...or had a few minutes for me...okay, honey.
There you have it. My basic day. I am exhuasted. LOL
This week I have added in having at garage sale at Sarah's house Saturday. So when will I scrapbook this week? I have no idea! :P I did manage to make a father's day card for Billy and am working on some for my FIL and Dad. I'll post those later.
So, since I have no pretty photos to post right this minute...I will send you off on a fun scrapbook hunt of some of my favorite sites. You can ooooo and ahhhhhh over THEIR work. LOL
Be on the look out for a post about my favorite you tube crafting videos. Good stuff out there!

Not my all time favorite layout, but it is done and the memory is captured for Collin. (Plus, he likes it, so that is what matters.) I have a graduation to go to this week and made a card for that as well. Now, the turtle has nothing to do with graduating (LOL), but it is a bit of a joke between me and Gina (the graduate).
I will post another challenge soon, so be on the look out!

I would like to pass this award on to some of MY favorite blogs:
I REALLY want to scrapbook right now, but still have a major pain in my side (literally), so I will just post a few of my favorite "old" projects that I have done instead. I'm never quite sure what to do with some of the professional photos we have taken. This one of Isabel with the Easter Bunny was a free one. Getting some groceries at Walmart and they snagged us to see the Easter Bunny and get a photos. My kids weren't impressed with the bunny, but did like the candy. LOL
I have trouble getting candid shots of my kids. Collin loves to make wierd faces and do strange hand movements and Isabel....well, I think she is going to try out for America's Next Top Model. She loves to have her picture taken and poses as soon as she sees the camera. I was excited when I realized the my cuddlebug flower die matched the flowers on this patterned paper pretty closely. I love it when that happens. LOL
We are sick at our house, so don't be surprised if you get more than one post today. :)
