spiderman shall moonwalk in april

Whats going on Peeps. I love saying that this time of the year. Spring is around the corner, the sun is creeping out to awake the Earth, and the aisles are filled with beautiful color and chocolate bunnies. I'm really not a big chocolate fan, but I love to look at them.

Blake is becoming a little man more and more with each glorious day. He can say anything he wants to now, the key being IF and WHEN he wants too. I guess thats a toddler for you. I cant believe how fast he is growing right before my eyes. His birthday is a bit over a month away. WOW, where did those 700 plus days go. Before I know it he will be asking for my keys, to take some cheerleader out on a date. He is starting to eat a little better, but his diet consist of Chicken Nuggets, Sausage Links, French Fries, Yogurt Drops, and Bananas. Those are the only things he will eat, unless you include chips. This boy loves him some chips. Classic, Salt and Vingear, BBQ, Cheddar and Sour Cream, even Ketchup flavored, which BTW are gross IMO, but he doesnt care as long as its a chip. My cousin Billy was the same way as a child. He loved them, just as much as Blake does now, heck maybe even more.

Of course I have been working on some crafty things this week. There's a use your supplies challenge going over at SBC this month. It's a 4 part challenge.

Week 1: to use swirls on your page. Here is my results. I finally got around to finishing this page. I guess all it needed was a swirl to finish it off. I know I have scrapped this pic before, but sadly its one of the best I have of Josh in his complete Class A uniform. NOTE TO THE US ARMY: you seriously need to make... no wait a minute, FORCE those boys to wear these uniforms on a daily bases. I'm positive the entire United States of America would instantly become a more beautiful country, with that simple change.

Week 3 : Use your scraps. I must say I love my scrap drawer almost as much as my new papers. They are some fabulous treasures in there. Not sure this page is complete. I felt it needed a few red and blue buttons, I just don't have a clue where to put them. So as you can see I didn't.

Week 4: Multiple Photos on a layout. Trick or Treating for the first time ever. He didn't have a clue what was actually going on, but he sure loved to look and feel the Halloween colored lights and decorations on the lawns. You can keep your candy dude, spiderman would rather have your fancy lights. I can see it now, he is going to love Halloween.

Are you wondering what happened to week 2? We'll I havent gotten to that one yet, so hold your tomatoes, hehe, BTW prompt is Ribbons and Fibers so thats a piece of cake. Did someone mention cake? We are planning Blakes second Birthday AKA his first real party. I cant wait. We are renting one of those enourmous moonwalks, and Im going to make the cake. I have big plans for that one including m&m's, oreos, toothpicks and even cardstock. Do you know what kind of cake Im making?

Thank you for your comment on my blog Cathy.

Your layouts are stunning, I love the one of your handsome husband in uniform. My husband is in the Australian Navy ad I always love when he wears his ceremonial uniform.

We had him in ceremonial uniform for our wedding. *sigh*

Love the colors in Week 4.

Oh and I adore the clouds in week 1.

By the way I am a little scared about large dogs also, especially if I do not know their owner. Some people raise the big dogs to be mean...but little puppies and little dogs....c'mon. And the Electric co. not reading your meter. OMG!

My SIL last summer got fined $600because her boxer was not on a leash or in a fenced area. The neighbor compained she barked everytime she walked her dog pass their house, and she was scared. I know Shelby, as big as she is, would never hurt a flea...but she is a BIG dog and I think I would be a little scared too if I didn't know her.
That same fine was combined with her other dog that was not leashed. A sheltie, Jock, that was 14 years old and dieing of cancer..he could barely get off the front porch, but they still fined her for him not being confined. She tried to fight the fine on him because of his condition but the judge said if he let that go then it doesn't set an example to the communtity.
Wow! I rambled. LOL
