I just felt like saying that. It's Monday, I've been hangin' with hubby all day and doing naughty things like going out to lunch and scrapping! I just love days when the kid has school and the big kid doesn't have to work.

I used a few new goodies on this one that I've been dying to break out of their packages and a few techniques that I normally won't take the time to do. It was fun! I hand-stitched (some of my hand-dyed,hard to find and a little pricey cross-stitch floss--glad it went to good use) around the SU! Top Note die and pulled out the sewing machine too and added some zigzagging. I also love the look of thickers and love that I can make my own with my QK dies so I cut each letter 3 times and glued them together to get that "thicker" look.

I used the SU! scallop punch too. I like this one MUCH more than the Fiskars threading water punch. It's smoother, my Fiskars gets caught up and tears the paper, and I just like the tinier scallop this one gives.

And last but not least, I finally used some BG Boxer. I bought an obnoxious amount of this paper and this was the first time I used it. These are pics of my son on our trip to Orlando this summer. I may have mentioned he was like the girl on the cruise commercial??

The journaling reads:

I love how your dad captured this candid shot of you-the look that drove us crazy, the one that says vacations with mom and dad are just not cool anymore. I think you secretly had fun every now and then and maybe you'll take us up on bringing a friend next time.
