Bottle class, A little mini and a park adventure!

These little yellow bottles have a little story...... Back in the day...before air conditioners...ceiling fans spun out of control....attached to the fan pull would be these fabulous advertisements. Because they would spin around as fast as the fan would draw attention to the advertisements. I got my hands on a few and I will be teaching a class on June 5th in Denham Springs at Scrapbooks and More. I had fun making this mini book. I love all things unique!!!! I think they are awesome!!!!! I used an old bottle cap on top.... Cute little touch!

Love that ribbon with favorite things on it.

So I found these adorable vintage soap boxes and had to make something with it. It is so tiny, just enough room for a bar of soap. I love the lady on the front. She inspires me. The mini inside is an easy accordian fold. I just added a few goodies and whipped it up real quick!

Now.....on to some pictures!

Saturday evening we took the kids to the park. We sat under a pavilion near a water faucet that someone had been making water balloons with.....
Let me just say Water + Dirt = MUD + Jaxon = BIG MESS.

Boys will be boys and I can't wait to scrap these pictures. The kids had a blast and slept very good Saturday night. Yay for me. Enjoy the pics.

This was just the beginning.... He had mud up to his knees by the time he was finished.... That is when the water cam into play!

Jesse loves his momma and he will do whatever I ask him. Love this picture..... See the dirt all over his face!

Jacob was hot and sweaty and he did not want his picture taken cause it meant he had to stop. He was having sooooooo much fun!

Alexandria was at a birthday party with friends... Her first time in a vehicle with a teenager.....They went to Chuck E Cheese....Well So she said... Low and behold without her knowing we were there... She decided she would go to the park too. When she saw us standing there wondering why she was there. The look on her face was priceless....
