Welcome Back. Blah. ;)

OK, so yesterday, my cold came BACK-it was TOTALLY on it's way out and today I am SO sore-you know when you cough SO much and SO hard that the next day it hurts to blink and the roots of your hair hurt?? Not sure if my pain is compounded by the fact that I was carrying the snow I was shovelling yesterday about 10 feet everytime I picked up a scoop of it, but today-I hurt and I hurt BAD. SO please forgive me if this post is very short BUT I just love these LOs that I have done over the last few weeks and really want to get them posted while they are still making the papers ;) 

I scored this Little Boy line by Echo Park at the last crop I attended in KV (and if you are local, there is another one this Saturday and it's a steal at only $25 and the food is wonderful and HOMEmade! And the proceeds go to a worthy cause for the school's Rennisance program). I talked myself out of buying the whole line as I have a REAL issue with paper hoarding and am kicking myself  for missing out as I want to hang on to every little scrap of it that I have. Maybe I will make up for it with teh 'For the Record' line by EP. Again-TOTALLY gets to my paper/color addiction.

This layout is of my Little Man and darling Little Nephew. I just love how they both light up when I take their picture (mind you, they don't always get along that well-they both have a case of 'only child syndrome'-but they REALLY do adore each other-most of the time ;)) I paired this line with some older American Crafts alphas that I had kicking around.

I knew as soon as I saw the trains on the sticker sheet that they were a must-have and am so glad I found a use for them instead of just looking at them like I normally do. Again, this LO is using the Little Boys line from EP with more American Crafts alphas thrown in for good measure.

And didn't I say that I can't throw out even the smallest of pieces??!! I managed this little card too.
(The tiny alphas are from Cosmo Cricket)

This last LO is using the Walk in the Park line & the Sweet Summer line (again from Echo Park).
The LO is about the little project Little Man brought home from school the first week and I was SO touched (and yes-I even carried my hand around for a bit ;) ) The green corrugated alphas are from Jillibean Soup and the actual hand he made me is tucked behind my hidden journalling on the 'notes' card. My hand writing is ATROCIOUS lately so I am looking for anyway to hide it that I can.

OK-I have typed WAY more than I planned, so on that note,
I am going to leave you with a 'Peace Out!'

Thanks for popping in-I hope to have some new work for you inthe very near future with the CHA-W release of My Little Shoebox.
