Weekend Fun!

Let's see I guess I'll start with a challenge card. Over at Allsorts this week their theme was "Spring is in the Air!" Love it! Then SPCC had a great color combo that worked so well with Allsorts challenge.

I had alot of fun creating this card. We've had great weather the past couple weeks, however the weekends haven't been as nice, strange wouldn't you say? So it was nice to create a springy card while it was quite chilly and gloomy outside yesterday.

I had Friday off so that I could go to the boy's kindergarten class for a "Beach Party!" Lovely weather I must say. Both Dad and I got to go and particpate. We had so much fun, dressing the part in our summer wear. I got so many awesome pics to scrapbook. Yay! I can't wait! Anyways, we had a great lunch of sand (vanilla pudding w/ finely ground graham crackers), seaweed (salad), octopus (hot dogs) and gold fish crackers & sea water. Very clever that teacher is....she shared a story that after 20 years of teaching and after 20 years of having beach parties, her and her husband have been slicing the hot dogs to have 8 legs to look like octopus, 100 total. She was watching Leno and they were sharing silly gadgets. They had a octopus maker for hot dogs. She said its takes her about an hour now, before it took them so much longer to cut each by hand. LOL! At one of the tables there was a real! It wasn't alive my boy wasn't completely grossed out, but a bit nervous. I decided to face my fears of any creatures and put the gloves on and held it and I was completely creeped out but happy that I could share that totally gross moment with him.

Friday evening Lucas got to spend the night at my mom's, first time ever! He loved it and said he would want to go there again soon. The bf and I went to Wyandotte for 3rd Friday. That city holds this all year, you walk around the shops stay open late, and there usually is a theme each month. Afterwards we went to a friends house for a bonfire. Perfect weather!

Saturday was just lazy!

Sunday my sister and I went to a GREAT! Scrapbook Event, sort of a the best deal and was so happy! I love my Creative Memories albums. Well some of you may know that they discontinued the very short lived landscape album (10x12). I have 2 of these and have needed refill pages for quite some time. They had 2 refills & pg protectors for 50% off. Woot! Woot!

So I've babbled enough, sorry if I went on for too long, but when you have such a great weekend its easy to babble. Have a excellent week my fellow creative bloggers!

BTW....check out my sister's new blog she is new to the blog world and has only posted once so far, and really its an
