The big 10

 That magical double digit number that almost
makes you a kid and not a little kid.
 I picked this paper because the symbols looked
like a Q to me.
I decided to highlight them on the page in case
I was wrong but I could still make them look like a Q.
The orange color was plucked from
Quintin's, the birthday boy's, tee shirt.
Let me know what you think.
It's an 8x8 size for the mom's album.
Love that camera.
I have a package of them and OHMY - no bottlecap.
It wasn't like I didn't try.

Went to see an impersonator

with our friends Wayne and Dara and had a blast.
 It's a local restaurant called "By the Sea" and 
every now and then they have entertainment while dining.
The food is delicious too.
 The guy was really good and sang all of Johnny Cash's 
famous hits and his wife joined in 
as June Carter, Dolly Parton and Patsy Cline.
She was also really good.
They  were having fun with it
and so was everyone else.
And that is how Dolly ended up on my hubby's lap. LOL.
She landed on every man's lap.

The Easter bunny came

Used this really old paper from Studio Calico and
that dictionary transparency.
Don't the transparency make you swoon. It does me and that's
the last of it.
Love that boy/girl stamp from Kenner Road.
Kids are getting older now but that won't stop me
from using a "young" stamp.
Told you so.
The colors just happened to work.
 And that bunny.
Ain't he cute.

I can do hard things

Love that its on a card and that it landed
in my box of stuff.
This is my crossfit box and we had a competition
with another box during the CF Open.
Battle of the Boxes!
 It was much more fun than trying to beat the world.
Alas, we only loss by this much <>
 Anyway, it was a lot of fun and they have a Masters 60+
and I realized that I have a lot of work to do.
No breaks for the real adults. 
This page sat around awhile because I couldn't make up 
my mind. I know this shocks you.
And it changed designs 93471457049572457 times.
No joke.
So underneath everything is flooring boards that
I thought went well.
And then I stamped bricks on it. 
And then I tried to whitewash them.
I found I don't do small painting well. At all.
So I decided to whitewash everything.
And there you have it.

One for the books

I loved books when I was a kid and it
followed me into adulthood so
when I got this from Studio Calico couldn't 
help but use it.
Love switching off to the 6x12 size.
(I wanna try 9x12 but need to find page protectors)
 Of course I cut the big tag into the books and title.
I love the owl peekin' out.
Wise ole owl.
 When I was in HL the other day Tim Holtz had these
bottlecaps. I KNOW! 
I love bottlecaps and you'll be seeing a lot of them.
What does it have to do with books?
It matches LOL.
But of course Sam loves books.
His mom is a librarian.
