So, this is one of those layouts I had out one day and Lexi came bopping up to my craft room, stopped, took one look, and broke my heart.
Lexi: MOM. Those braids.
Me: Yeah Lexi?
Lexi: Um, yeah.......
Me: You think they are not cool?
Lexi: Ah yeah.
Me: I was little you know? Like your brothers age?
Lexi: ROLLING EYES
Of course, her BROTHER broke my heart yesterday. At work, we call it getting thrown under the bus.
So, last night we were doing her nails all pretty for Valentine's Day and in the middle of it all, Luke shows up and starts dart gunning the door near us. It wasn't the darts wizzing past that annoyed me, it was sound of it all.
So, his Dad was having a drink with our old next door neighbor away on business. Luke dials "Dad" on our phone as his cell is programmed in.
THE MAN: Yeah Luke?
Luke: Dad. Mom is being mean about my dart gun. She won't let me fire it.
THE MAN: Ok buddy. Where are you firing it? Anywhere near Mommy?
Luke: Um. Not at Mommy.
THE MAN: No doubt she is annoyed by the sound. Go fire it downstairs, OK?
Luke: Yeah. Thanks. Love you. BYE
It really sucks when your Dad has ESP about what is going on in his house five hours away.
Hope I didn't break my Mom and Dad's hearts too bad when I was little, but I probably did.
I know for a fact that driving me to Girl Scouts wasn't a small thing. Not to mention sewing all those patches on. I was SOOOOOOO excited to go. I think it was the snacks though...and the fun little projects, giggle!
Anyhow, there is a brand new challenge up at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge that you MUST take a crack at!
Here are the instructions:
Using sketch 7 ‐ February 22nd is Baden Powell Day – Baden Powell was the founder of Boy Scouts, and his sister Agnes was the founder of Girl Guides.
Scrap a memory of you in Scouting or Girl Guides
(brownies, Sparks, Guides, etc.) or a memory of a group you belonged to when you were a child or teen.
You may include a memento or journal a memory of what belonging meant to you.
Remember, if you have a photo that will work in a portrait format, you can always flip the sketch!
I had fun adding some flowers here and there. All the flowers are from Eye Candy Magic and also the really neat scalloped denim. The background paper and also the Farm House Collection are from the January Scraptastic Club.

Perfect time to play along and get an extra challenge to win! And PSSSSTTTT!!! I wish I could win, it's awesome stuff! Don't forget to leave me a comment to be entered in my draw too!
