I went out shopping the other day and found these goodies at Michael's in the dollar bin. I just love things for $1 or less. I am really excited about this alphabet! I have been needing a smaller one for a while. You can click on the picture to enlarge it if you need to. Hope you all have a nice weekend!

|What Your Taste in Chocolate Says About You|
Your taste is refined, but you are not picky.
You are often the first to try something new.
You are passionate and full of life.
You fall in love easily, and you tend to have whirlwind relationships.
Your passion sometimes does get the better of you. You have a crazy temper!
You love being around people. Friendships are important to you.
You feel lost when you're by yourself... so you tend to avoid being alone.
Maybe i will load some stuff up and make a new picture disc. Hope you are enjoying the last days of May!

Here are my clown cupcakes. They didn't turn out quite as good as i expected, but hey..i get credit for trying to pipe little frosting clown bodies don't i?
Remember that bandanna i showed you a few days ago...well here are the pants that i turned them into. I think they are sooo cute. I tried to stamp the clown from her invitation on her shirt..but even though i tried to heat set the SU! craft ink...it came out when i washed it. BOO!
We put in a lot of work for kids' birthdays around here. we start planning early and i think the kids really had a great time! Everything was so fun and festive! Now i can try to catch my breath and relax a bit. I have also been working on some Teacher gifts for the end of the year...I'll post those in a day or two. Hope you had a good weekend! TFL.

Here is a taste of my DD 's 4th Birthday hoopla and i will be back soon to give you more details and more photos of all the fabulousness of it! hope you had a good weekend!
In addition to all this birthday hoopla, we have had swim lessons, homework, a graduation and life to contend with. I am glad it was a success and that it is all over now and i can look at the pictures and enjoy all the hard work!
My DS is graduating from 5K this week. Well, i guess technically he HAS graduated since they had their end of the year program on Friday, but he has 4 more days of school. It was so cute. they sang songs and they each got a "Class of 2008" medal from their principal. He was such a cutie taking a bow after each song and trying to get the others to bow with him...they never did catch on though.

I just wanted to take a moment and show you all the lovely things my Darling Kids made me for Mother's Day. My son made this frame and picture of him at school. It is too cute and so perfect for Me!
My parents take the kids to Home Depot on the first Saturday of the month to do their little wood working classes. This time they made these vases and flowers for Mother's Day. Only a hardware store would come up with wooden flowers! The one above is the one my DD did and the one below is my DS's. They painted them once they were at home with Papa and Granny. They are so cute!
My DD made this earring holder in her preschool class. I just love it! I totally needed something like this so i could find and keep up with my earrings! I have it hanging in my closet for easy access when i get dressed in the morning and undressed in the evenings.
We had a great day. We went to church with my parents and in-laws and then went to Ruby Tuesday's for lunch. The kids were so great that day. We had a nice relaxing and peaceful day. I hope yours was as good.

I don't understand all the computer talk surrounding it but apparently he had to completely wipe the hard drive and so anything since the last time we backed it up to send it off...is gone!!! Thankfully i had uploaded my pictures to Snapfish and just backed up my MS Money! but still! DH says that it appears that the hard drive is about to go out and if that is the case...it will happen soon! Apparently we are two repairs away from Max Assurance either replacing the entire machine or refunding our purchase price. I have to say that i hope that happens because this laptop has been one problem after another and i am OVER it! Dude...next time...I'm gettin' a DELL! not a stinkin' HP!
Hope you are having a great week!

More to come on this later...but let's just say that this bandanna will play an important role in the party and add to the atmosphere and fun of the day!
I got this popcorn "box" at the Dollar tree, and i will use it for popcorn at the party, but for now it is holding my treat bags...they turned out pretty cute..and i know they will get brought home, emptied and then trashed so i didn't want to put a lot of effort into them.
Now this...has a story. My parents were cleaning out their garage and found this clown painting done who knows when by my Grandmother. Mom saved it because she though i might be able to use it for the party. I used SU! chipboard letters, with DP decoupaged onto them and then glued them to the painting. DH added the grommets for me and with a little twine, it is a perfect addition to our party decorations! What do you think?
I am looking forward to a Great Mother's Day tomorrow with my mom, Mom-in-law and my little ones! hope yours is great too!

I started this card at a SU! party a while back...then i spiffed it up. I decided that i didn't want to attach the two pockets, that i wanted it to lay flat and so i decorated the inside of the card as well. I also made a card to go into one of the inserts.
All stamps and paper used are SU! and i got the template for this double pocket card offline from a blog but i honestly can't recall now where i found it.
Insert a gift card and then i made a little card that fits in as well. I did break out the sewing machine for this one..first time..i was happy with how it turned out. I hope you all have a great weekend and a great Mother's day.

I know there are a few things that didn't make the list that she lost her receipts for, like some clothing she bought for her toddler a couple of days ago and some deodorant that i remember her telling me about.lol!
