Hello friends, it's pretty rare around here that I go four days without posting, but back to school and our house getting struck by lightning on Saturday night crafting took a back seat for several days. We have to have our chimney replaced, roof fixed, some appliances replaced and drywall work done. Here's hoping the insurance company is easy to work with for the repairs. I am so thankful no one was hurt when the lightning struck so working through the logistics of an insurance company is not a big deal.
But that isn't why you stopped by! First, I have a card to share with you for the current PaperSmooches Challenge. The inspiration photo was flowers and I of course had to ink up my PS Reflections set. Love it! This is very similar to another card I made with this set, but I love the white ink on the coral.
And next..I have Collin's birthday pictures to share with you. He was so excited to have his birthday party at a go kart place. It was absolutely awesome. The boys had a ten minute race on the go karts and several races using remote control cars. That combined with pizza, cake and presents made for a perfect birthday!
I love these pictures of him with his cake. The left hand photo is a pure Collin face. It's a little bit of I don't like being the center of attention, but I'm so happy I'm about to laugh face. It is 100% Collin...adorable!
And here's the whole gang getting ready to go kart on the right hand side. The pictures of them actually driving the go karts didn't turn out very well! The bottom two photos show them with the caps they had them wear underneath the helmets. Probably a good thing as they were very sweaty when they finished racing!
Our gifts to Collin were a mini locker (he loves doing the combination) and a metal detector. He loves going through our yard and out with Pat whenever possible to metal detect. Collin looks for the metal and Pat digs up what he finds...it's pretty hilarious really and he absolutely loves it!
