Game 6 ACLS Red Sox vs Tampa Bay

In our house it is Red Sox fever. This game was a must win for us to force game 7 on Sunday and then we have to win that one and then we will be going to the World Series for the 3rd time in the last 5 years. We won so now the neighbors will get to hear lots of screaming again tomorrow night. Even the kids watch and wear their hats that their PopPop so proudly gave them. It is fun to watch even Wyatt learning how important this team is and clapping when we do and tonight laid on the couch watching the game through almost the whole thing, probably because he has a fever and was throwing up but that is ok he was still watching. We love you Red Sox and will always believe in you.

Kit Club Layouts for September

This month we had 3 great challenges. The paper was pretty bright for my liking but I made it work and that is what the whole point of kit club is. The first layout is with the challenge to not crop your picture(s). I used brown distressing ink to go around the edges of the chipboard and blue around the different papers. The second layout was called Stash. We had a list of things to chose from and had to use 5 of them on our layout. So I used buttons, brads, a heart, an arrow, and a frame out of chipboard that I inked. I also had sewed with embroidery floss on the layout. The third layout was our last challenge which was weather. We had to go for a walk or find something in the weather that inspired us to do our layout. So I used the picture from my birthday when it was snowing. I also used ghost letters for the title. This layout was really fast to do. The last 3 layouts were extra paper that the leader gave us and as you can see I also went and bought more because heaven forbid I only do a 1 page layout. On the LegoLand layout I used the puzzle pieces that were in the kit and painted them I thought this would be a cute connection to Legos. I always enjoy doing the kits and seeing how I can stretch myself each month. This month it was the weather layout that really took me a long time to come up with.

Greetings From Wyatt

This is what I was greeted to the other afternoon when I had to get Wyatt up early from his nap. Then again this morning he had his diaper half off when we went in to get him up for the morning. Don't know what I am going to do about this but maybe some duct tape will help.
