*yeah...that's right...we ARE the family of the month* :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

*aka* the BIGGEST lo I have ever had to make. period. LOL! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

The family was honored by Brookie's school to be the 'family' of the month..sooooooooo we were asked to decorate a poster board to have displayed at the school.... :):):):):):)

Of course, since this was about our family....I couldn't do it alone!! LOL! :):):):):):) Brookie colored the cardstock in the middle and Adam helped me glue down the American Crafts flowers :):):):) Ohhhhhh and he helped Mama with cleaning her stamps and hehehehehehehe handing her baby wipes to clean her hands while she was stamping around all the edges! (those stamps I used btw are the YUMMY Lawn Fawn stamps!)  :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

I am thinking what I call "the biggest lo we have ever created. period." turned out pretty good! :):):):):):):) whatcha think of our little (wellllllll....big! LOL!) creation!?!!??!?!?!? :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

I chose the lyrics..."My gift is my song & this one's for you" ... with Miss Brookie singing her heart out for us a few weekends ago! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

I used the newest line from that the amazing Gudrun sent me!!!! WOW WOW WOW!!! This woman is sooooooooooooo talented .... she has sooooooooo many GORGEOUS details in her papers!!! LOVE THEM!!! Thanks Gudrun for sending them to me! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
