dorks

Yes, we are dorks. Photobooths tend to do that to ya.
This is a post where I gush about how I couldn't have survived Spark, being pregnant with 2 little kiddos, with out this boy!! He honestly saved me. He especially was great at Noah's and let us boss him around to do all the manly man stuff. I'm sure he saw it as a great chance to show off his muscles.
Sure, we have our moments and thank goodness he's very patient with me & my inherent Greek spice. But there isn't a day that passes where I stop & think how quite lucky I am to share this crazy life with him. hand in hand...

PS How many guys do you know that would willingly MC a childrens talent show for their church? Exactly. He's a rare breed, this boy, & I love him so.


We had the Smile Now photobooth at Spark again this year + a candy bar. Which means we had TWO candy bars. (I promise at night I dream of the fabulous snack room Amy put together! She was our caterer extraordinaire--say that 5 times fast.)

This is currently my inspiration easel in my studio. Usually I take everything apart when I'm done but this one is perfect to simply add some journaling then pop into my scrapbook.

Eclectic bits from catalogs/magazines, scrabble game piece, book paper, fabric flower.

K, I'm trying to remember where I got that button from --that I added the jem to. I didn't list it because I couldn't remember...It's driving me nuts. hmmm... let me think.

That is so stinkin' cute! I haven't even cleaned up all my stuff from *Spark* yet, let alone make anything. (Not that my head isn't overflowing with ideas though....especially since I saw what you did!) Thanks for more inspiration!

Do you know who makes the metal stamping supplies we used in the flower class, right before your class? would you mind emailing me directly? I loved using them, and would love to get a set!
