Who wants a sneaky peaky? Oh, boy...too much time with the kids this week. Henry has been running a fever so I have been home and up with him at night. Man, that poor, sore, crusty nose makes me feel so badly!

And owen is a hoot. He always wants to go to the park. We really need a swing set or something.

Here is a peak of something I worked on for Serendipity Scrapbooks.

I also made this little box for brian for our 5 year anniversary. I got diamond earings and he got this! LOL. I call it the Lucky In love box! LOOOOVE this felt fusion from Queen & Co! Got some of the fish! I made it for HSS's GDT challenge to scrap something about a man, for a man, ykwim ;) !!!

Well, it has been a long few weeks but FUN! the beach was awesome and the wine festival this weekend ROCKED!i had a blast but now it is time to get back to reality. OH! and we found an awesome place for sushi when we were looking at houses. YUMMY! it was so good. we put our house on the market so say a prayer for us or send some positive house selling vibes our way!

Here are a few things I have been working on. This one was for a challenge over at Simply Obsessed to have a 3D obect on your page. I used mostly Scarlet Lime goodies.

This one is for the HSS upload day. Celebrating St. Patty's Day with some green beer! how perfect is that felt fusion from Queen & Co.!?

This last one is my final entry for the Gauntlet at Scrapperie. Didn't make it all the way but it was a blast! I always love a good contest! I used my kit from Simply Obsessed that i am, well, obsessed with! LOL!
