What a day!

Yesterday was one of those weird days! You know the kind that has good and not so good moments, then just turns pretty good, and then... Well it was an up and down day with the way the boys were behaving yesterday then they just were good as gold and we were having a nice day. So good that while they napped I FINALLY was able to get into the dungeon and get a LO done! I am SOOO proud of myself because every month I say I am going to do the My Mind's Eye sketch and I never get to it or get it finished and uploaded in time! So this month I did it right away and I am happy with how quick it came together and the end result! This month the challenge was to use the sketch the word HOPE and it must be at least 80% MME products! Easy enough I have my precious stash of MME that is calling my name!
For this LO I used the So Sophie and Quite Contrary lines. And that bracket of to the side of the photo-its cut from the bottom of the piece of paper! The So Sophie line has these cute brackets that show the paper that is on the opposite side on the paper. They just beg to be used! Everything is MME except the Thickers-I really want to find the MME version of Thickers they look AWESOME!

So after dinner we finally were able to get outside (the heat and humidity is near 100 here!) and the boys were playing kick ball in the backyard and the ball was kicked under an arborvitae tree and Joseph went to get it, well there must be a yellow jacket hive in there because he started screaming that he got stung by a bee! He said he picked up the ball and the bee was on his finger! My poor baby! : ( Given how allergic everyone in my family is to bee stings I was worried! But thankfully he is doing just fine today! What a way to end our day!
Well off to do the fun household chores of cleaning bathrooms, doing dishes and folding laundry! Someday just maybe I can have a maid! LOL!!!

Well the natives are restless so that is my cue to find something for them to do!

Here are some cards for your viewing pleasure!
These are some thanks you cards I made for the boys' T-Ball coaches as a token of my appreciation for the EXCELLENT work they did! If you head on over to the MOSD blog you can see the gift that I made the head coach to coordinate with these cards. I am SOOO in LOVE with the BoBunny Block Party paper!

This is a card/gift bag combo I made for a Baptism for a friend's little baby. I used a color combo from the Scrapmaster's Paradise Color Combo blog for my color choices. And if you haven't uploaded your entry for this week's color combo you have until 6 pm EST tomorrow (Sunday) to do so! There are AWESOME prizes to be won! And be sure to check back on Monday for my debut card for the blog!
