Now, I have a waaaay over-due thank you to do...
Here's what Kelly sent me for our February Aloha RAK...
Dozens of Hanna Stamp images!!! I am going to have sooo much fun coloring all of these - coloring helps me relax, so these are perfect for me right now ;)

Project 365 time!!!
This past Happy Tuesday was also DH's 33rd Birthday!
The boys usually go to the Hallmark section and buy the $1 cards... but now they don't want to anymore - they want to make their own ;) "It's more special", they both said, lol!
They have been stamping more than I have!!! lol!
For DH's Birthday's, we usually use whatever leftover stuff we have from the boys parties, hee hee! This year, DH had a Diego/Batman party :)
... no, I didn't make the cake either... but it was sooo delish!!!
Present time!!! We, I mean... DH got the Wii from the boys and I... the family came through with a few accessories and games to go along ;) Thanx guys!!!
Last week, I finally said, 'Enough!' Your hair is just waaay too long!
So, the boys finally got their haircuts! Aren't they cute?! Nicky wasn't too happy with cutting away his skater-look... but he was happy with the way the hairdresser gave him a different type of skater-look... lol, a cleaner kind! ;) He got to keep his hair a bit longer on top...
That's my boy trying to be a skateboarder - thanks to his Titi Sara and Tio Sean, they really came through at Christmas...
... and FINALLY! I received my Project 365 kit!!! Look at all the cool stuff it came with! I'm so excited to finally be able to really put it all together!
I must admit, I haven't done every single day, but I've come pretty close to it! I'll be adding more journaling and embellies to make up for missing spots... or maybe I will just do the days I have and add in next year too :)
Thanks for passing through :)

wow girl - look at all this awesome stuff... What darling ATCs and I just love that recipe layout!! I never would've thought to do a recipe scrapbook, but now you've got the wheels turning in my head!

I love that the boys made their Dad's cards!! My boys will make a card only if they've procrastinated too long to go to the store! LOL!! The kids look just as excited as Dad about those presents!!

I need to check out the 365 project...I've seen a few references to it. I really need to be better about my picture taking. Seems like 80% of the pictures on my camera are of cards lately!

Holy moly! Glad you are feeling better and I am getting a cold again! Argh!

LOL- I guess that's the worst part of being sissy's :)

Anywho, you did a great job on the swaps, I have already mailed all of them out so you should see them the next time I come by.

Great pics for 365! I have been taking pics but not sure if I am doing it or not as 99% of the pics are of my doggie LOL.
