Too Much

It is currently 8:36pm and do you want to wager a guess on how hot it is outside? Well, I just checked our outdoor thermometer and it reads 91 degrees! And that, in my humble opinion, is too much.

Spoiler Alert!

No, I am not going to tell you what happens next year in the first new episode of LOST. But, if you happen to be a father in my immediate family you should not look at this post as it will destroy any surprise you would have in receiving a father's day card from me ;)

October Afternoon is sponsoring another random drawing for people who create cards based on their sketches. Here are the October Afternoon card sketches. 

And here are a few cards I made based on the sketches.

Now back to our regularly scheduled programming...

October Afternoon Card Sketches

October Afternoon is one of my absolute favorite scrapbook companies. The combination of colors and designs of their patterned paper is seriously unsurpassed. They are having a fun drawing over at their blog. To be entered into the random drawing you have to create a card based on the sketches they provide. These are the sketches:

Here are a few cards I created based on those sketches:

I was in the bedroom, putting clothes away and I heard this conversation between Little Miss and her Daddy while she was taking a bath:

So why do we have Mother's Day?

LM: I dont know. Can you tell me?

You know. You were just telling me the other day. What do we do on Mother's Day?

LM: On Mother's Day we celebrate our Mommies.


LM: Because we love them SOOOOO much.

What do you love about Mommy? 

LM: ...

What does Mommy do that makes you happy?

LM: She takes me to the fountain. She reads me books. She puts band aids on my boo boos. She takes me in the pool.

What about how she feeds you and makes sure you get a good nap and takes care of you.

LM: Yeah.... but I REALLY like when she takes me in the pool because that makes me so happy.

Happy Mother's Day.
