Out of this World!



Stamps: Paper Makeup; Paper: SU, Chatterbox; Ink: Memento, Copics; Accessories: Making Memories Brads



Paper: CTMH; Sticker: CM



Paper: CTMH, football paper I got at Archivers :) Cricut Cartridge: Cursive 101, welded using Design Studio

You may be wondering why I chose to post these particular projects tonight! ;) (You can see a story coming, can't you?) Well, stay tuned...this is a good one and has to do with our week o' fun!

You see...drum roll please...it is Girl Scout Cookie time in Japan! (Hence why I am a bit late in posting...we have been in delivery...and eating mode!)

And this is the heated conversation overheard between my son and daughter tonight.

Daughter: "Stop it! Move! I am sitting there!"

Son: "Fine! But you know what? Mom and I are cheating on you! We bought cookies from ANOTHER Girl Scout!"

Oh, the horrors! LOL And of course we DID NOT! But I did have to keep myself from laughing.

So, these projects reminded me of my kids: the alien is my son's favorite, the page of his smile is priceless, and the page of both of them "cheering" for one another is a testament to their love for one another...even during cookie time and fights over the "good seat" in the car!

Remember to smile today! And thanks for stopping by!

Great little monster card, and your little monsters seem similar to me and my brother when we were younger. Nice to see you back. It was great getting a Christmas card from you. Funny...I just ordered Girl Scout cookies today.

Adorable card and layouts!! Your coloring is just awesome! That's such a cute story, lol, such a brother thing to say! We're in the middle of cookie time too. Our group of Daisy moms decided to make a night out of handing in our cookie sheets this week- it was fun! Can't wait to get some to eat!
