~More Paris Creativity Fun & Blog Hop is coming!!

Good morning my crafty friends,
I did manae to eek out one layout this weekend.
I LOVE taking papers you might consider girly
and making them work for me...

I have the Paris Creativity Paper Pad and it is filled with stars and
stripes and bling, perfect for BASEBALL!
So here is my first official baseball layout.
Sports themed layouts are all new for me so I felt funky
and a little off, *don't be too hard on me* BUT my so woke up
this morning and when he saw it he FREAKED OUT!
"MOM you scrapped me in my uniform!! I love this mom thanks!!"
And you know what? If he gets that excited about my layout
then who cares if it's trendy or in a magazine!
I am sooooo giving him some of this Paris Creativity paper,
he will definitely have fun playing with it and creating!

We had quite a weekend, 2 baseball game to start with a bang,
and ended on Sunday with a Renaissance Festival. NONE of use had ever
been to one before, and it was very interesting to say the least.
This is the castle that we visited and toured.
It is actually a home that one man built from the ground up.
Crazy right??
He had a dream and literally brick by brick built it.
He said it is not done and never will be, it began 30 years ago and still
needs so much work.
This is in the upper area, the boys thought it was so cool!
A kick butt owl we the bird show.
Amazing birds that flew all over and did tricks.
The jousting match, the boys LOVED this!
I was very distracted by this dragonfly during the match, I missed most of
it because I was photographing the dragonfly LOL
Then some kid came up with his wooden sword and whacked at it.
I was happy I got my shot in before he tried to knight the poor bug!

Ok on to crafty news...
Be there are be square!
Scrapbooking From The Inside Out is the host
and at 8:00am Central time it will be posted!

That's it for my sunburned self :)
I am off to clean and prepare for a birthday party this weekend!

~Have a great Monday~
~Thank you for stopping by~
