Scrap-urday

I have had a wonderful Scrap-urday!

My guys are out of town...it is a long weekend...and I decided I was going to devote myself to just playing! I started out with my May kit from Jenni Bowlin....love, love love it! I always want to try something new with her wonderful bracket die cut page...and this new one has printed journaling lines on it. I cut half of it out -- and placed the red KI lace behind it.











Journaling reads: I'm talkin' 'bout you two...my guys! I look at these two men in my life and my heart feels like it doesn't know whether to skip a beat of just pound riht out of my chest. You both have that dangerous twinkle in your eyes...and mischief in your heart. That same heart is tender and good -- willing to fight for the underdog. You are two independent souls tied together by blood, experience, love and family ties. Sometimes I can't tell one from the other -- and at others, your differences are so very evident. On any given day I think that I couldn't love you more...and then the next day -- I do! I am so very blessed to be loved by you and to love you. And I do love you two -- {my guys}


Weston has long dreamed of being able to drive a Corvette! His dad has taken him to the dealership to sit in the brand new ones and dream. He talks a lot about how "one day" he plans to own one. I think it is great to have BIG DREAMS. Earlier this year, he began talking about how very COOL it would be to get to drive one for his senior prom. I don't think he thought for ONE MINUTE that that would ever happen...just talkin' -- dreamin' -- it would be COOL! His dad heard his grown up "boy/man" dream and decided that if it were in his power to make it happen -- he would. I won't go into all the details -- but he did manage to procure a 50th anniversary "vette for Weston to drive to the Prom...it was a night Weston won't forget anytime soon...(I have some layouts devoted to that too) -- Until "the day" he is able to buy one for himself...he will have memories of the ONE NIGHT it was his.

Hope you all are set for a fun long weekend...
