The Bad Ad...

So,... it's gotten to the point that Mcaila will run through the house on and off all day Sunday singing, "It's Sunday! Sunday! SUNDAY!" All I can think of is those bad car & electronics ads on tv! LOL She's so cute doing it I don't have the heart to tell her though!

We did end up trying to go to the spooky farm... It's been bought out,and it's not so spooky anymore. In fact, yesterday they had a small group of amusement rides and game booths in there so it was more like a fair... The kids had a great time, but Brenden was still insisting on trying to see the spooky animals over an hour after we left... To him spooky farm meant there should be animals with the spooky! LOL

Well, I finally finished the CJ that was supposed to be postal on the 10th so it's going out today.

I'm not thrilled with it, but I think it turned out pretty nice.
-------------------------

I also started working on a 2008 calendar using 2007 photos yesterday. I never work with 8.5x11, but decided it would work better for the calendar to give as gifts because I can then use the binder at work to put then together for almost nothing. I just need to buy a set of binder combs! One of the goodies I got with Meredith Fenwick's RAK was her 2008 Calendar Stamps. I figured I could use them for this project, and then to date some LOs next year by simply highlighting the day on the calendar!

Let me know what you think so far...

I'm not thrilled with the way April has turned out. I think I might re-work that one... September was actually done first because I was playing with my goodies from Meredith! LOL The page just worked better with those photos.

Not much else to report this morning so I'm off! Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!

Wow, your callender is really turning out nicely. I've been using a template and it seems to be taking forever. I've only got 3 months done. Thanks again for thinking of me. There were so many cool things, I haven't decided what to buy/get. I feel like a kid in the candy store.

Have a great day!
