Reveal Day from the Back Porch!!!

LOLOL...that just sounded fun to say!! I LOVE sitting out on my Back porch...It is where I chill and watch the kids play in the pool. It is where we have our watermelon, our BBQ's and our family gatherings in the summer. And, it is where I sit with my laptop, soaking in the sun, and chatting here on the web and my favorite sites. I LOVE my Back Porch...and I LOVE the Back Porch Memories Board!

So, you all know that I am the Guest Designer at Back Porch Memories for the month of August...

what you DON'T know, however....is that this kit is MAGNIFICENT!!!

So...I will tell you...


When I started working with it, I KNEW I was loving it!!!! Four layouts and 1 card later, I finally have exhausted all of my paper and most all of the embellies. But....not myself! I could continue with this kit for several more projects!!! it is phenomenal!!!!

Here is a simple card. I will probably tweak it for a teacher when the kids go back to school...but for now, it is a simple generic card...and I LOVE the softness of it!

Here is "Beach Bumz". It is Dayne, Skye and Hunter romping in the ocean and playing on the beach. They LOVED the feel of the sand in their toes!!!

Here is "Beach Fun". It is Aubrie and Brianna playing in the sand on Jamaica Beach. Their favorite thing to do was to build sand castles and try to make the prints in the sand.

Here is "I'm Soakin' Hungry" I already previewd this one last week Here if you would like to see the journaling. It really IS cute..LOL.

And My FAVORITE...."Kissed". This wa s asneaky little picture I caught wile on vacation last year. Skye made her Daddy give her a kiss, and I CAUGHT it!!! I love~love~love this pic! And this kit was the PERFECT choice to showcase this precious moment!

Ok...so there is my crafty stuff for the day...let me get to the funnies....

I took Tamon the Optometrist yesterday. As we are waiting to be seen, I am flipping through a magazine...Family Circle I think...and I see a beautiful triple decker ice cream cone with a cherry on top. I knew Tamon would appreciate the looks of that ice cream, so I told him..."Hey...check this out...don't you want one?"

I noticed his eyes were fixated on the opposite page from where I was intending, so I said..."NOT the girl, son, the ice cream cone!"

He half grinned and looked at the other page.

I Said..."Typical male...looking at the chick!"

He said...." I was looking at the sandwich."

I had to look back at the magazine, and sure enough...she was holding a sandwich!

THAT was even funnier! Mama always said...
"The quickest way to a man's heart is through his stomach."

I just had to laugh. Yep...my kid is becoming a man!
