Muddy Boy

Hey Yall,

I'm not one to let my son get muddy all though sometimes I know I should.  I mean after all, he is a kid and lets face it....I did it when I was a kid...I'm sure we all did! :)  After it rained one day (not a lot mind you) my son decided to play in the mud.  Since he is autistic he usually doesn't do that. (doesn't like messy hands)  I started to get upset and then said to my self....."well hell he is all muddy and he doesn't usually do this..(as I threw my hands in the air)....i better get the camera now!" LOL AND I am so glad I did....

Challenges: Simon Says Stamps Chellenge "whats your favorite tool".....mine is my circut exspression and my white jelly roll pen

HOLLY COW BATMAN....can Yall believe he got that muddy.  I mean seriously did he really have to rub it in his hair and on his face.  He even has a 5 inch thick pile on his lap LOL.  I couldn't believe he did it to begin with much less that much! LOL

Background Paper - My Minds Eye "Complete Boy" stack
Distress Ink(s) - Tim Holtz "Vintage Photo" and "Faded Jeans"
Cricut Cartridges - Everyday Papers Dolls, page 42 (waters drops, rain boots and mud splats)
Letter stickers - Recollections and KaiserCraft (blue ones only)

All the pattern papers are from my scraps. 
Embossing Folder - Cuttlebug "Tiny Bubbles"
Pens - White Jelly Roll and Martha Stewart "Indigo"
I used pop dots were ever I can!

I hope Yall like it.....I know I sure had fun with it!

OH YEAH...when he was finished playing he looked up at me and said "mommy I need to hose off this is yucky" LOL after I hosed him off he said "I need a both NOW!" LOL

Sping Clening Time #2 post :)

Hey Yall,

OK so Yall have asked for inspiration and before/after we go!!!

The first two picture is of my craft room before I rearranged it about a month ago.  BOY OH BOY did that take some time to do!!! LOL

These nest two pictures are of my finished product and a little better organization.  I labeled everything thing and put them all in their own black baskets.  I hung some of my favorite pages.  I got this 8 1/2 x 11 paper holder from my boyfriend and now I need to get a 12 x 12 (lol of course) 

In the bottom part of the paper holder I keep my thickers, magazines, paper cutter, and a few other things.  I just love it!

Today the only part of the cleaning I had to do it clean up a little on the floor (new goodies LOL) and you really couldn't see my table LOL.  SOOOO...after about 1-2 hours I was DONZ-O!!!
I hope Yall like it!!!
