Safety-Tat latest product!

I'm very excited to see Safety-tat has come out with a writeable applique. I bought the rocket ship tattoos for Liam a few months ago and have used it on many of our weekend adventures. At the time, I only bought one pack with my husband's phone number on it, which is not helpful when I'm the one taking my son out. With their latest product, I can write my phone number, nana's phone number, or uncle's phone number. This is brilliant. The tattoos are non-toxic and can last up to 5 days. Note: Do not try to apply it over sunscreen. It will come off very easily. The skin needs to be perfectly dry before applying. If you sign-up for their free newsletter, you get helpful tips on how to keep your kids safe when you're out in crowded adventures. Visit their site at: safetytat.com

Why God Made Moms?

My lovely MIL sent this to me the other day and I wanted to share. Kids really do say the darndest things. I wonder what Liam would say about me?

Answers given by 2nd grade school children to the following questions:

Why did God make mothers?
1. She's the only one who knows where the scotch tape is.
2. Mostly to clean the house.
3. To help us out of there when we were getting born.

How did God make mothers?
1. He used dirt, just like for the rest of us.
2. Magic plus super powers and a lot of stirring.
3. God made my Mom just the same like he made me. He just used bigger parts.

What ingredients are mothers made of ?
1. God makes mothers out of clouds and angel hair and everything nice in the world and one dab of mean.
2. They had to get their start from men's bones. Then they mostly use string, I think.

Why did God give you your mother and not some other mom?
1. We're related.
2. God knew she likes me a lot more than other people's moms like me.

What kind of little girl was your mom?
1. My Mom has always been my mom and none of that other stuff.
2. I don't know because I wasn't there, but my guess would be pretty bossy.
3. They say she used to be nice.

What did Mom need to know about dad before she married him?
1. His last name.
2. She had to know his background. Like is he a crook? Does he get drunk on beer?
3. Does he make at least $800 a year? Did he say NO to drugs and YES to chores?

Why did your mom marry your dad?
1. My dad makes the best spaghetti in the world. And my Mom eats a lot.
2. She got too old to do anything else with him.
3. My grandma says that Mom didn't have her thinking cap on.

Who's the boss at your house?
1. Mom doesn't want to be boss, but she has to because dad's such a goof ball.
2. Mom. You can tell by room inspection She sees the stuff under the bed.
3. I guess Mom is, but only because she has a lot more to do than dad.

What's the difference between moms &dads?
1. Moms work at work and work at home and dads just go to work at work.
2. Moms know how to talk to teachers without scaring them.
3. Dads are taller & stronger, but moms have all the real power because that's who you got to ask if you want to sleep over at your friend's.
4. Moms have magic, they make you feel better without medicine.

What does your mom do in her spare time?
1 Mothers don't do spare time.
2. To hear her tell it, she pays bills all day long.

What would it take to make your mom perfect?
1. On the inside she's already perfect. Outside, I think some kind of plastic surgery.
2. Diet. You know, her hair. I'd diet, maybe blue.

If you could change one thing about your mom, what would it be?
1. She has this weird thing about me keeping my room clean. I'd get rid of that.
2. I'd make my mom smarter. Then she would know it was my sister who did it and not me.
3. I would like for her to get rid of those invisible eyes on the back of her head.

Saturday-Word Challenge

Hey Everyone, one more layout before I go to bed. As you know, I had tons of fun with the hubby in Vegas. Wanted to scrap about it. The word challenge is-Remember at scrapmatters.com. Hope you like it. Credits: Veronic Ponce's DateNight freebie kit

Bonus Challenge for Designs In Digital

I had a ton of fun with this layout. Because the challenge was not to use a photo, it actually went fairly quick. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think! credits: designed by Lori Cameron-Delta Blues kit

ScrapMatters Tuesday Template Challenge!

I had tons of fun with the challenge because I had a chance to scrap about Liam's first day at preschool. I can't believe he is going to school already. He is growing up way too fast for me. These really are the days to cherish. Hope you like the layout from scrapmatters.com.

Hubby and I celebrated 5 years! Woohoo...

And of course, I had to scrap about it. We spent our anniversary in Viva Las Vegas, which I haven't had a chance to scrap yet. I took fabulous photogs from our beautiful room in one of the top floors of the Bellagio hotel. We had the best view of the famous water show in front of the Bellagio. This scrap page is a quickpage done by Retrodiva {designs} from digitalfreebie.com. I love the paper and elements so much that I may purchase the whole kit.

Projects! Challenges! Digiscraps! Where do I begin...

I'm in the works of participating in the Scrap Factor challenge from DesignDigital.com. I haven't uploaded my first challenge yet, but I will make sure to do so here. I'm also taking a class from SIStv fashionista Ashley Wren. I've done a couple pages for her already, but am not allowed to post them until the class is done. I'm having tons of fun with her "assignments." I'm also in the beginning of an online writing class from a fellow Momwriter. I'm excited to receive my first assignment from her as well. As you can tell, lots of creative juices flowing but not a lot to show for it right now. Check back soon to see what I've been cooking up.
Ciao for now!
