Life Lesson #42: Sometimes Mommy Laughs AT You

I know.  I know.  As mommies, we're supposed to protect our children, both physically and emotionally.  That we're to assure them we're always their champions.  That we are to teach them the "right" way to treat each other and that it's rude to laugh AT other people.    But come on!  Sometimes they do things that are just so positively, insanely hilarious that we can't help but laugh AT them.  Mommies are human, too!

Yes, this is my SON.  He did this himself. 

And one day this will be a cornerstone in my blackmail arsenal. 

I made this layout for this week's prompt on Spunky Scrappers: Confessions of a Real Mommy.  Be sure to head on over there to check out what the rest of the DT made.  Very "enlightening".  LOL!! 

Incidentally, there's an informal contest going on over there on Spunky...let's see who can bring in the most new members.  So, hey, if you feel so inclined, head on over and sign up.  Be sure to let them know on THIS POST that Heidi sent ya!  ;oD  Seriously, we have had and will have some great, SUPER FUN prompts for your scrapping inspiration.  You'll be glad you checked us out!

This layout also satisfies all the challenges from the first week on the Design Dollies site!  Three forms of bling, check!  (Rhinestones, mini mirrors, Ting A Ling Sparkles glitter glue.) 

Color combo, check! (Royal blue, white, black.)

Sketch, check!


Head on over to check out the new Design Dollies website!  What an amazing amalgamation of talent!!  You'll love it.

Aaaaaaaand, I also incorporated the prompt on Category Stories:  Laugh.  I'm really enjoying their prompts.  I've played the last couple months and there's just something so non-confrontational about their prompts.  Somehow that doesn't sound like a compliment but it is.  It really is!!  Their prompts are just easy to slip into. 

(Incidentally, I also included the Pile It On 3D challenge but couldn't post it before that one closed.  Oh, well.  LOL!  I'm so addicted to combining challenges!)

I think I better go kiss my son.  I have a feeling I'm going to get it one of these days for sharing this pic.  LOL!

Have a great Monday!!
