Crazy for cupcakes and PB&Js

I finally got around to taking a photo of a card I did for a challenge and swap on Split Coast Stampers. The challenge was to make a card using the color blocking technique. It took a bit of doing but I think it turned out alright! I made it even harder for myself by using Cameo Coral a color I'm not very fond of to say the least. In order to make it okay in my mind I paired it with one of my faves Old Olive. I had to use my Stampin' Pastels to color in the image using my Blender Pens. I love those pens and use them all the time.
All items SU! except paper clip. CS: Whisper White, Kraft, Old Olive and Cameo Coral. Stamp sets: Crazy for cupcakes and Illuminated wheel. Ribbon: Old Olive 1/4 grosgrain. Ink: Basic Black and VersaMark. Misc: Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder.
Yesterday Simon wanted PB&Js for lunch and he wanted to make them himself. In fact he insisted on it! He was so funny! He kept using his finger to take the peanut butter off the knife. (the kids kind from the IKEA of course) When I reminded him that he was supposed to be making a sandwich he said "Oh ya! Right!" LoL The kid cracks me up! These are some pics I took.

Three things...

So I have recieved a few different blog awards from people. Melonscraps, Melegs and Craftyscraper have all given me different ones. While I appreciate them I have no idea how to add those things to my blog! lol Someday when Melonscraps comes over I will have to have a note pad at the ready while she shows me all the ins and outs of blogger. Like how she showed me the way to make peoples names into links. I know it's easy but I have totally forgotten! :( So thanks gals!! I wil try to figure it out soon.
On to the next thing. Jingle (look at that!! I remembered!!) posted some random photos today and asked others to do the same. Here is mine.

These are the DVDs that just stay on top of the entertainment canter they are watched so often. I finally just gave up putting them in the locked cabinet. I'm such a lazy mom! lol So what movies are out at your place?

Finally Stacey over at All Moments Remembered has a ton of new product in the store. I was browsing through the store and this paper totally caught me! It is totally my fave colors!! These are my happy colors. While I can't wear yellow because it makes me look ill, I love to surround myself with it. In fact my scrap room walls are yellow and green!

Anyway here's hoping your holidays are merry and bright!!

Here's something that will make you jolly!!
