When Do The Kids Go Back To School??

It's been a long President's weekend having the kids home Friday and Monday...and dad too. I'm trying to get some stamping done for my show this Friday and they just won't cooperate with me. They keep wanting to go places and and have friends over and eat, eat, eat!

Botanical Blooms Sale-A-Bration set. I used Always Artichoke, So Saffron and Elegant Eggplant
I'm not complaining about my favorite Branch Out set, but they are starting to all look alike. I think I need to branch out a bit...ha, ha!

This is what happens when you go to the mall and leave dad in charge. Dad was upstairs working on taxes and Nicholas was a little bored!! Pardon the mess, Ben was working on homework & I was doing laundry.

I knew when I got a phone call asking me to pick up more string cuz he used it all, I was in trouble. There was this elaborate trap set for me at the door when I came in. He has been perfecting this technique for least string is cheap :o)


  1. I love his creative mind. Give him a stamp and see what he can do.

  2. your boys are too funny, becky. just wait until they learn adult antics. haha.

    absolutely LOVE! your card! gorgeous.

    When my Son was young he surprized me once by playing barber with his Sisters beautiful long blonde hair. Needless to say...It wasn't very beautiful after his hair cut! LOL

  9. So what happens when you open the front door? Do things start falling over or off the shelves? Is it like one of those domino things? He sure is a creative kid! I bet he keeps you on your toes!
