Organize your Stuff: Week 21 (round 3): Pens and Pencils Part 3?

Ok here it is! Creative Me’s opus. Ok, Ok . It is not that great. However, considering that this was a weekend (CHA weekend!!!) in the middle of a household of three active children, a layout is indeed a feat of miraculous proportions.
For those of you who were wondering… no, Illusive Middle Child did not place in his pinewood derby. He actually only made it to the finish line only one out of three tries, as one of his wheels was sticking. So the POW has been on the Ego repair and recovery team all weekend, and we let him pick the pizza and the movie for Pizza and a Movie Night on Saturday.

The Illusive Middle Child mini album is in process. OCD Me has not said anything untoward, even after the eighth time that Illusive Middle Child managed to screw up the ATG gun by rolling towards than away from himself. We feel like Wesley from the Princess Bride (if you have not seen this Netflix it now, it is THE movie from my generation…well one of the top 10 anyways…) calling out “as you wish” while being pushed into the Fire Swamp by his obviously misguided love. Seriously, it is hard not to go Mommy Dearest with your child as they play with all of your most favorite toys (I know, shame on me for sharing my favorite toys in the first place. But if we don’t share now, how can he get in trouble for not sharing later?)

Well the layout is up, as promised. So we hope that you enjoy! Note: Creative Me has currently decided that white pens are totally cool and used them to write under the large photo!

Heads up for Tuesday…dies week! (According to Wookiemouse, Dies and Die Cuts are not in the same category…though as a not big owner of non Cricut dies I tend to disagree). You either have mountains or not much at all!

Sorry about Middle Child's luck at the derby. You're a better mom that me; DD is not allowed to touch my ATG. :) I like the write pen on this, really allows the journaling to show up well. And The Princess Bride is one of the best movies ever! :)

Cute layout, love that focal point photo! I am impressed that you even let him touch your ATG gun. I'm afraid I do not play well with others.
