Kick off Your Shoes and Dance!

Good evening, friends! I hope you had a lovely Saturday! We did. Well, other than trying and failing miserably at getting the baby to take naps. We spent the evening at some friends' house for a BBQ, and got a flat tire on the way home, so we didn't end up getting him to bed until about an hour and half later than we've been doing, but he did go right to sleep. (because he was SOOOOO tired from not napping.) In spite of all that, it has been a great day!

I created this card using one of Julee's sketches, this time from the Meet the Verve Divas Challenge on SCS. I love this set of quotes from Verve... each one was chosen by a Verve Design Team member, and there is a story behind why it was chosen. I had never heard this quote by Oprah, but I love it! If you can't read it in the pictures, it says "Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes and dance." I love, love, love it, and I think it is my new motto!


And, of course, you need your daily dose of baby. (Well, I know at least one person reading this does--here you go, sweet Auntie!) He has this new habit of rubbing his hands in any food that doesn't make it in his mouth, and then rubbing his face, eyes, and hair. Did you know that sweet potatoes make great hair gel? Look at his stylin' mohawk! :-) I have some more cute pics that we snapped at the BBQ tonight, but I'll save them for tomorrow.


Well, that's all for me tonight! I hope you have a great day tomorrow, and . . .

I love the saying on the card! It reflects the way I feel. And thanks (from your sweet auntie) for my daily dose of our adorable baby - it does my heart good. I plan to use sweet potatoes for styling gel when my hair gets as long as his again!

This is from your mom, not your Sweet Auntie Beanhead...I absolutely love all of the cards you designed and showed on your blog. You are soooooo creative. Your creativity sure didn't come from me! And, of course, I love the baby pics too. I hope you are having a good Sunday. I'll try and call early in the week. Love you bunches. MOM

What a little cutie. My baby is into the same thing, food and hair rubbing. Usually he waits until he all done and I'm thinking yay, no food and then he grins at me and grabs his hair!

Thanks for visiting my blog.
