A freebie for you

Hey everyone, did you have a good Thanksgiving and survive if you went out and about on Black Friday?? We are stuck in the house due to I have a respitory infection, but got new meds today so hopefully I can take my dd out to see New Moon this weekend. Have you seen the simply gorgeous kit Midnight at the Oasis by BooLand Designs,
I was lucky enought to be able to guest CT for this kit and loved working with it, here are 2 layouts I made and they are very different in feel, a fantasy layout and a more relaxed natural feel.

This kit has beautiful rich colors and is very versatile. You may purchase this kit at SAS and as a special treat Boo has allowed me to make one of the layouts into a quick page for you.
Image is linked, to dowload please click on image, remember this is for personal use only, please do not give away the link, redirect your friends to my blog to download.

Kids say.........

just the darndest things... they were all in bed listening to their MP3 players and my oldest comes downstairs and says "we have a problem", so its another delay tatic to stay up later, I ask what is wrong. She says "Jaden is crying, he is listening to the song girlfriend and says he isn't cute and will never have a girlfriend" I told her to go upstairs and him to come downstairs, tried to tell him that at 5 years old, girlfriends are a long ways away, (even thought he said he had 3 at school last year) that he is very cute and most girls and boys at this age think each other has cooties, he said but Gavin has a girlfriend, "who" I said -- Rebecca he said, this a a girl that has been in the same class with Gavin since Head Start and they barely talk to each other( they are in first grade)I just gave him another hug and told him that girlfriends could wait for a long time. He went upstairs and told his Dad that "mom still just doesn't understand"

Have your heard...........

SAS has a new owner -- Toiny of PiggyScraps. Please stop by the site and say congratulations.

Kid's Create

Well my kids have been bugging me about letting them help to create a layout about themselves so it has finally been done, I suggested some kit choices, they picked the ones they wanted to use and the elements and paper. I walked Alexa (10) thru completing hers herself, I started the boys and then let them place and size some of the elements since they are only 6 and 5.
Ready, here you go. Please leave them some luv so they will want to continue to be creative in their lives.

This is Alexa's she choose not to use a picture but just use her favorite color and one of her two favorite animals. The kit is Ellie's Elephants/by julie c at SAS.

This is my youngest's Jaden who is 5, and he definately fits the theme, kit is cheekycharliemonkey by julie c at SAS:

And this is what Gavin the middle one choose, kit is "It's a boy's world" by Sweet Blossom Designs

Hope everyone had a great weekend. Will be back with more LO's soon.

Kids do say the darndest things.

Kids do say the darndest things don't they. Last night my husband asked out youngest what he learned in school (he is in pre-K due to a winter birthday)..also pictured in the mitten layout.. He said does everyone know how to read like you do? Jaden answered, "Well, they are all doing OK now but I AM the SMARTEST" so my husband then asked "why". Jaden then said -"today we were learning about the letter "O" and I was the only one who knew ALL the pictures and the only one who know what an ostrich was. then boys will be boys, Jaden and his brother were playing some kind of game where one of them was "hurt" and the other was taking them to the hospital, after my husband went upstairs for something Jaden decided he wanted to cuddle with Daddy. My husband said I thought you were playing with Gavin where Jaden promptly with a deadpan face looked at Gavin and said "you're dead, you died" Where do they get all this from?? Little ears can hear the quiestest things I think. What do you think, leave a comment sharing some of your funny moments with your kids.
