One of my favorite layouts

If you have ever been to South Louisiana in the summer time one delicacy that we just love is eating boiled crawfish. Now some of you might turn your nose up, but don't knock it until you have tried it. It is quite tasty. This is a layout that I did of my son Cameron. For some reason the kids like to "play" with the live crawfish before they are boiled. Crazy, I know.

Lots of Fancy Pants products used here. Thanks for stopping by!

Dream maker, love taker, don't cha' mess around with me.

I have to say that Pat Benatar was one of the best rock singers of the 80's. That song came to mind when I did one of my last Creative Xpress ( assignments. My assignment was to focus on the Ranger Embossing powders. Since I have not embossed in several years this was definitely a challenge for me. Oh, and I made my own die cut paper shape using design studio. I welded triangles to a simple square shape and this was the result.

I have to say that I was pleased with how it turned out.

Products used were the Cricut Indie Art card, Ranger embossing powders, Bobunny stamps, Bazzill dotted swiss & textured cardstocks.

So what do they say about payback?

Yea, my Cameron was laughing at all of us as we puked our guts up last weekend. Well.....I thought he had escaped the illness that wrecked havoc on my house, but...two days after the last one of us got better he began to "pray to the porcelain god". Poor baby. Maybe next time he won't laugh at the rest of us..........

Uuughhhh!!! Everyone but Cameron has gotten sick this past weekend. Charlotte started last Thursday after we got home from Mother's Day out, then I started with it yesterday morning at 7AM, next was Jake at 4PM yesteday, then Neil at midnight thirty this morning. So we are just waiting for Cameron to come down with it. So far, so good....

Let's keep our fingers crossed. He is trying to stay away from the rest of us, but I am afraid that he has been exposed.

We will see.
