Catching up and a layout

Hello Again! I just realized that it's been a couple weeks since I've blogged, my bad :-)

Me and the family have been enjoying some sporting events as well. We attended Speedweeks in Daytona a couple of weeks ago and went to the Magic vs. Cavaliers game on Sunday. It was RJ's 1st live NBA game and he had a ball! We decided to go at the last minute and had to purchase tickets from a 3rd-party site (read: at 3 times the value), but it was worth it. Both of my guys decided to test their vertical jump limit at one of the vendors outside of the arena. I was shocked at the results! See for yourself:

*Mr. R has some hops! I didn't think he could still jump like did, LOL!*

* I was just happy that RJ decided to try it. Normally, he's really shy.*

He really wanted to see LeBron dunk, but that didn't happen....AT ALL :-( It was a good game and my team won, so that's all that counts :-)

I have been somewhat productive on the crafty-side of things. I've finished 4 layouts, completed Valentine's Day projects and I'm putting the last touches on my 'Favorite Songs' pages for my 'Book of Me' swap. I need to get those shipped by Thursday so I'm hoping to finish them up tonight. Here is a quick page that I completed:

I've really been trying to use up my stash and stop hoarding supplies that are "too pretty". I took some online stamping classes facilitated by Jennifer McGuire on the Two Peas in a Bucket website a while back. She introduced me to crackle paint and I went CA-RA-ZEE! I brought every color I could get my hands on, but have rarely used them. For this page, my goal was to use some crackle paint and Cosmo Cricket paper that I've been hoarding.

Cardstock: Bazzill & Paper Studio
Embellishments: American Crafts Thickers; Making Memories- journaling spot & chipboard; Ranger- distress ink & crackle paint; Colorbok metal studs
Tools: EK Success- curved edge punch

OK, off to work for me. I'll be back tomorrow to share another layout.

Thanks for stopping by :-)
