After I did this...

(chatting with Megan online)

and while he did this

I made this

Some close ups for you

See where I used my new punch??!!

And today... we spent some of the morning checking out local garage sales, bought the girls some 'stuff', including something for Megan, here is a sneak peek for you Megan:

The rest of the day was around home, doing whatever... Snapped Lucy doing some of this

Funny story...
We had a blowfly in the house today, nasty pest! Anyway Dave was trying to catch it, so we could feed it to Fang the Venus fly trap, when Elizabeth went rushing out of the room saying something very inaudible. Anyway she came back with the McDonald's things, that we had bought for her at a garage sale, she loves anything cooking... ok where was I, oh yeah.. she came back with the McDonald's toys and said "maybe these will help. The fly would see them, think they were real, land on them and then we could catch him!"
Slightly amusing and precious, don't you think??!!

I scrapped this double 8.5x11 page today too

The journal spot and the scallop edge are made from packaging off a packet of MM lettering.

And speaking of recycling and before I go, head on over to the Queen and Co blog. They have their CHA release announcement but WOW what cool ideas they have had in regards to going a little green, for this I stand and clap!
Pin It Now!

  4. Kids come up with the best ideas sometimes. I wish I were so quick.

    Isn't nice sometimes to sit and do nothing?
