ouchie ouch

Yesterday I went to the Air Show at Luke AFB with Cooper (my 16 yo son) and my FIL. It was a very cool show and we all had a great time together ......... BUT....... I was stupid and didn't wear any sunscreen. HELLO! 6+ hours in 80+ degree temp in Phoenix on a cement airstrip = SUNBURN! I need to have someone take a pic of my face. I look like I was snow skiing with big goggles. Oversized shades do the same thing to a face. I need to even out my lines badly. I have beautiful lines from my shades, bermuda shorts and tank top. We went to the pool this afternoon and I looked hysterical in my bikini (white belly & white bug eyes). Here are a couple snapshots of Coop taking a tiny 5 minute snooze waiting for the Thunderbirds to begin their show and one of my burnt legs (with a couple hours still to go....and what a bad just makes my hips look HUGE).


welllll....tomorrow is Hudson's 2nd day of Little People Child Enrichment's kind of like a preschool to preschool..... it's only 1 hour a week's sooooo super cute... there are only about ten 2.5 - 3 year olds in this class and they squeeze in play time, school time for months, numbers, & letters, story time, music time, and a little bit of coloring all into this class.... you have to keep moving fast to entertain little kids this age

doesn't he look adorable for his 1st day last week?


yes... I do need to scrap these, don't I????? they are definitely on my to do list


ok...if you don't already know....I started selling some commercial goodies about a week and a half ago...........
and my latest addition to my OAKS store are my Practical Papers, paper templates (better than overlays)
Every Practical Paper Template has at least 4 layers (including the background) in .PSD format. This will allow you to use several colors for one piece of paper. You can have varied opacities for each of the layers too, as well as adding a splash of a pattern to one layer with CNTRL G. You can have at least 2 colors for every piece of unique paper you create. How fun and colorful!

find them HERE

The PNG versions will be coming soon.


oh.... I realized I've never shared one of my newest favorite sites with you... it's MissTina's super fun one.... you just have to check it out'll be a huge fan of hers too
