Old and New

There really is no in between. It's either raining and cold or muggy and stinking hot. At least we got to use the baby pool. J was so tired last night he didn't know what to do with himself, I love that. Now that I know water is his kryptonite, I shall exploit it thoroughly. Because man was he a handful yesterday. I know he looks like an angel, but Dennis the Menace had nothing on him.
In my very limited older stash, I have kept the paper that I absolutely love/can't live without. Cosmo Cricket's Get Happy is still one of my very favorite lines. I combined some Cosmo Get Happy with some new Sassafrass lass chipboard and thickers:
Two Layout
Supplies: Cosmo Cricket Get Happy Patterned paper pad in Get Happy Snappy and Get Happy Number 9; plus black Bazzil cardstock, Sassafrass Lass chipboard numbers; and American Crafters thickers numbers.
Instructions: Print text via computer to white patterned paper. Adhere patterned paper as shown. Adhere photos and chipboard/thicker embellishments as seen.
And this one is with Cosmo Cogsmo Patterned paper and Lil Man embellishments:
Air and Space Layout
Supplies: Cosmo Cricket Cogsmo Patterned paper Magical Portals; Cosmo Cricket Lil Man Ready, set, chipboard; plus gray bazzil cardstock.
Instructions: Cut pattern as seen from Cogsmo patterned paper with a craft knife. Apply to cardstock. Adhere photos with text via computer-designed in photoshop. Adhere chipboard embellishment. 
I think dh is really going to like the Air and Space one, I think he was afraid I was going to go too girly with it since there were vintage patterned paper all over my desk when he last saw me working on it. But the gray is very manly I think. You know taking these photos in the very crowded and cluttered museum was no easy task. It was a study in photographic angles, trying to keep all the cluttered planes hanging from the ceiling from encroaching on the one plane I was trying to highlight. And the lighting was questionable.
Well, I guess there will be more pooling today. However, my child can't seem to get enough of trying to spray me with the hose while I'm holding the camera, so I don't know how long I can hang in there. :) We need some new pool shoes, J completely outgrew his from last summer. We may go look for some this weekend. Happy Friday/Weekend! TGIF! Until tomorrow.

Happy pool time today. Hope the sun shines brightly on you this weekend. We are headed up to see our favorite boy this weekend, so even if it snows, the sun will be shining for us.

I totally laughed at exploiting the "kryptonite" comment... LOL.

i think we have the same attitude towards the pool play - wearing those kiddos out is worth donning a swimsuit anyday :)

Love those water days! My J was the same - still is really! When he's a hand full in any way, a pool or a bath will make everything better! The magic of water! Love the layouts!
