Dynamic Trio Tag
I love creating tags and this week's Cardabilities sketch was the perfect excuse to make one :) I combined it with this week's Dynamic Duos with pink being my extra colour of choice and as luck would have it, Crazy 4 Challenges has a tag challenge this week. Gotta love a three for!
I just love pink and white and kraft together. Another colour combo that just makes me hapyp :) I went on the girly side with this tag and was doing a happy dance because I used two things from my discard die pile - whoo hoo! Need to use a ton more to make a dint in it, but at least it is a start.
I celebrated the start of summer vacation (aka: not having to get up early) by staying up well past midnight reading a book - grin :) Summer is my oppurtunity to put a dint in my ever growing reading list, and I must say I am very much enjoying my Kindle as well as becoming fast friends with the library again...happy sigh.
As a celebratory gift for the kids doing so well in school this year (4.0 for my daughter's first year in high school and 5 As and 2 Bs for my son - yes, I'm a very proud mommy!) we got a three pack of Nerf water guns. Mommy nixed the battery operated one (makes it automatically shoot water instead of having to pump it to spray) and managed to coerse them into getting a 3 pack of pump guns so we could have family water gun fights. HUGE shout out to Nerf for making the three pack and for being brilliant in their design as you can attach a regular water bottle to the end, versus the smallish water pack you get with the gun, making for longer lasting water ammo. Mommy (being just a tad competative) tried a large pop bottle on the end and it fit like a charm, thus providing me with a very large and long lasting water supply and the opportunity to soak my kids well after their water supply had run out. Needless to say, my son had THE biggest grin on his face when he realized the potential for future encounters :) Let the water gun wars begin!!!
