Hi guys. Just kidding. I promise I won't cry, it's just MONDAY again. lol.... Did you all have a great 4Th yesterday? We had a good day, but did not have our family Bar-b-que or swimming get together as we had a wind advisory for the whole day. Let me tell you, for once they did not get it wrong either... That wind was blowing so hard I can not believe that they did not cancel the downtown fireworks!
Mitchell has been having problems with his ear this weekend and it has been rather windy up to yesterday before the strong winds, so out of the three days that I had off we did not swim once. That's ok though. We all spent a lot of our time reading some really good books. We also played games with the kids. We really enjoy doing that. I even got to check out some tutorials over at splitcoast stampers and try some different types of cards. Wow did I have fun with that. Wait till you see this week what I learned to do. I have to say that I am quite pleased with myself. heehee
Well to start this week off let me show you a simple idea I had for Mitchell and a book marker. For some reason when I read a book I have always liked to make myself a book marker to go with it. I have no idea why I can't just use the same one each time, I just don't. :O Anyway, my two children seem to be the same way as their Mommy(me) .... sooooooo I made them each a new book marker to go with a couple of books that they just bought from their allowances. Let me tell you it was so much fun to just color up the stamp that they wanted. I then backed it with DP and added some ribbon. They both keep telling me how much they really love them. As Mitchell's was the first that I made we will start with his today.
Better get a move on. Have a great day guys and I will talk at you tomorrow. Hugs, Lisa G

Such a darling bookmark! Sorry your Fourth was so windy. It was cold and threating rain most of the day on my side of the Cascades.

Looks like you're on a prize-winning streak! You won Amy's Mermaid candy too! Way to go!
