Let's Capture These Sketches # 18

This weeks sketch was created by Susan Coish!! I had so much fun, I actually created 2 LO's!! LOL! In all honesty, i was having an off night, so i wasn't truely pleased with either one, so i jsut kkept createing! LOL!
Anwho... The sketch is posted on the sketch blog and here is my take on it... my favorite one anyway!!

I also was playing with my My Stamp Box stamps, and created this funky spotted border using the colon sign!!! ::::::::::::: So fun and funky!!! These stamps are just TOO versatile!! :)
These hands... are TOO funny! They are foam... I got them in a kit a couple of years ago and said "WTH will I EVER do with these???" Then, i was cleaning out my scrappy closet and came across them the day after I started this LO! How perfectly they fit!! Who would have ever know! Lesson... Never say never!! LOL!
Sorry for the wonky picture... it's raining out and i was anxious to post for the sketch blog. Will retake once it STOPS RAINING!! :)
I used lots of goodies from the Nov Sussies kit in this page too!! Those kits are just too fun!!

Where's the 2nd LO you ask? Waiting for a NON rainy day! And I used mist and stickles so it's a bit rumpled... SO annoying!
But until next time... Happy Scrapping!

Oops, I did it again!!

This song has been going thru my head and it's SO going to be the title of an up and coming LO!!

Well...Yep... I did it again...

The cat is starting to get out of the bag...

But before it does... let me just say a couple of things...

DH and I are NOT like a couple of breeding rabits!!!

We DO use birth coltrol!!

It does NOT work for us!!!

We WILL be going to more extreme measures!!!


Yes, You guessed right... I am expecting baby #5......

Yes, I already have 4...

Yes, they are ages 6, 4, 2 and one tomorrow...

Yes I'm insane.....

No, I'm not sure how I'm going to manage... I just know I will... somehow!

I keep thinking... "God promises he will not give us more than we can handle..."
Um HELLO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think he's made a bo bo this time!!!!!!!!

So, any donations of sanity, patience and extra hands will gladly be accepted...

Until that time... bare with me while the reality of this sinks in... it's just a little overwhelming... can't imagine WHY?!?!
#5 will be arriving somtime mid/late May... I'm just PRAYING it's not twins!! :)
