means "I love You" in Dinosaur. 

But these Dinosaurs are saying RRROOOOOAAAARRRR!
Which means "I'm Hungry!"

Dayne informed me of that little tidbit of info...
as he is setting these Dinos up to
eat the driver of this police truck!  He said..."They are so hungry, they want MEAT!  But...they cant get into the police truck because it is super strength like the Bat-Mobile...
So they started eating each other!"
 So...they are eating each other...and while I am
"Capturing all the action on film"
The montrous Chewysaurus came along and snatched
up one of the dinosaurs!

Dayne says,
"OH NO!  Muttzilla is on the loose!  RUN!!!"
And I got the photo of Muttzilla biting the head off of one 
of the dinos.  Poor Dino!

And I can't WAIT to have JUST THE RIGHT STUFF to scrap this!  
I need dino papers!!!!

Hope you all have a magnificent weekend!!!
DON'T Forget to check the blog post below...
I am doing a GIVE AWAY!!!!

Go Check me out!

I am "Officially" part of the Simply Renee Clip-It-Up team!  Go check out my Welcome post on the blog!  I am so excited to be a part of this amazing team!!  Make sure to check out my first official post tomorrow!

My Favorite Magazine......

Seriously?   But I don't read magazines!  I don't buy magazines, and I don't even thumb through them in the doctor's office! LOL....Oh what a challenge this was!Today, my first assignment for the Favorite Things DT has been revealed.  I had to do something about my fave. magazine.  AGH!!!!  Julie certainly made me think outside of my little box for this one!
 Rather than doing a layout about a magazine, I did a layout about ALL magazines!  And the fact that my favorite ones are the ones that stay at the store...and DO NOT make it into my home to create clutter! LOLOL.

 I put some of my Bella Blvd. stash to use for this one.  I thought the Midterm collection was a good choice for this layout.  I wanted to keep it plain and to the point....I do not like magazines! LOL...NOT because I don't enjoy the content.  QUITE the contrary.  I LOVE a good read!  I just don't like the clutter that they bring to my home.LOL
Hop on over to the Favorite  Things blog and check out the challenge in it's entirety...and all of the DT's creations!  Those ladies ROCKED this challenge!  I hope you play along, too!  The prize for this month is being sponsored by Nikki Sivils!!!!  How cool is that!!!???

Crop Your Heart Out!!!!

YES! That is exactly what I have been doing! 
Cropping my Heart out!
I LOVED this month's "Crazy Love" kit over at Scrapbook Daisies
It features the Bo Bunny "Crazy Love" line 
and it is so pink and frilly and FUN!
Perfect for Valentine's Day and so much more!

Below are my projects using this kit...and I still have a little bit
left over to work with!
This is my 2 nieces at my SIL's wedding a few months ago.
They both looked so precious and GIRLY!

I printed the mice from the internet to add to the "Cinderella" feel of this layout.
This one I did using the February sketch by Kristine Davidson.
I tried for a fun & funky feel to it, because my 
Aubrie is as FUNKY as it gets!!!!
Here is "The Crazy Little Love Game"  It is my hubby and I
Acting goofy for the camera...It is my FAVORITE GAME
to play with him! LOL...The game of love!
I did a tic tac toe board to add to the "Game" theme. 
It is also my layout for my Favorite Game over at A Few of my Favorite Things.
Go check out the challenge and the is awesome!
we would love to have you all play along with us!!!

This is a candy bar bouquet...I altered an empty Prima flower tin
to be the "flower pot".  This is the gift and the card that Skye 
will give to her teacher.  She has taught ALL FIVE of my kids in 
Kindergarten.... She is awesome and we love her.

And this little my altered headband!  I used the tulle flower from the kit and a scrap of 
fabric....and pulled out my handy dandy I-top and twist Daddies..and went to work! 
This will be Skye's head jewelry for Easter to match her dress.
I even BLINGED it OUT!!!!


The "Crop Your Heart Out" crop is going on RIGHT NOW!! Head on over to Scrapbook Daisies for the fun! All challenges will be posted throughout the day today, and you will have the entire weekend to work on them! Remember, everything is due on February 14th...and yes, there are prizes involved!

In the words of Pooh...

It's WINDS-day!
And it is flippin' FREEZING!  What state do I live in again??? Texas???  
It sure does NOT feel like it!
I can't complain, is much worse in the northern states.  
If you are up north...Keep WARM!, this will be a fairly long post...but hopefully not TOO boring!
First...I want to say...I woke up to THE SWEETEST thing ever.  EVER.
Last night, Dayne, my 8 year old was playing around my desk, 
and he asked to borrow some thumb tacks. 
I didn't question him...I just told him where to get them.
I was busy making dinner.  Well, he must have figured out
that my piercing mat was a pretty cool little gadget....
because he started playing. 
This morning, when I woke him up for school, he told me to go look at my
computer.  THIS is what I found....

 LOVE. THAT. BOY., here is the scoop...
