I'm busy working on a few different projects of late. I am altering an oval mirror with Crackle Paint, Glimmer Mists, Grunge Paper, and other fun things. My August MemoryWorks Express kit, Untamed, is here and I'm plotting an Alphabet Animal book for Elizabeth. I am also playing with Basic Grey Lemonade pattern papers and Rub-ons for 4 layouts at once! I've matched up the BG Lemonade with some Core'dinations cardstocks that will be a blast to play with. Core'dinations are starting to become one of my favorites as I can alter them. I'm all for the altering! What did we say at my former LSS? If you are in a foul mood or need to get some stress out, go and alter the tar out of something! :)
So I'm busy like a beaver. On top of all of this I've had both Gavin and Elizabeth home with me for the past few weeks fulltime. Summer break and all that fun stuff!
Gavin celebrates his seventh (?!?!?!!!) birthday on the 31st. He is having his party on the 29th. He is, of course, having a Dinosaur party. Since he absolutely LOVES scrapbooking, he has decided to make his invites this year. We are almost done! (good thing we invited everyone by phone first, huh?) The invites are Orange, shocker I know, and have an embossed T-Rex on the front. So far this has been a learning experience for him. He wanted to learn Heat embossing as he was checking out my tool so I told him he could. Mommy has been the one doing all the work, but telling him and showing him each and every step. He is fascinated by it all. "Mommy!! The sparkly orange powder is all shiny and glittery now! It's stuck to the paper!" Way too cute! Tomorrow will be lessons on Stickles, ribbons, and assembly. I'm hoping to get them in the mail. I said hoping...
I'll post some pictures of everything later on. I will be certain to get a pic of the birthday boy with his invites! He'll be tickled pink, or should I say Orange, to be on my blog again.
