Thanks

Good morning.  Hope your Saturday looks as beautiful as the weather is here.  Pat is camping with Collin this weekend so I was able to get downstairs and play last night after Jonathon and Collin were sleeping and I was waiting for Ryan to get home.  This is the first summer he's allowed to go to Kings Island without parents and I think it is the first of many times I'll be waiting for him to come home.  It wasn't a late night, but there was road construction so it took the parent bringing them home longer than expected. 

Enough of my rambling and onto my card.  It is always good to have a stash of thank you cards on hand for my boys to send.  I love the Grunge Me set from PTI and used it for today's card for the CAS-ual Friday's sketch challenge.  I interpreted the sketch fairly literally as you can see!

Also...for those of you who saw the building of the Taj Mahal earlier this week, it is now complete.  Marcel is playing with his "jet pack guy" and R2D2 in the Taj Mahal...
And no...my children don't normally sit on the dining room table, but it's not everday that you see the Taj Mahal!

  4. Absolutely love this, Lynn! The monochromatic theme is so effective and gorgeous here! Thanks so much for playing with us at CAS-ual Fridays! PS: my family are big Lego fans. Last Christmas the father and son build the Lego Tower Bridge. So happy to see your little guy has Taj Mahal in the dinning room (that's where we built ours!!).
