GYSO#5

Happy Friday!  TGIF!

 I am soooo happy today is Friday.  What a stressful week with all the ice, snow power outages, freezing temperatures and then Jack--did I tell you what he did this week.  I was at school for about 2 hours and then I get a call that he was sick.  So I get my principal and secretary and tell them that Jack is sick and I need to go pick him up at school.  Well as soon as we all get home he is FINE!  He then admits that he was not sick and he made it up because he just wanted to stay home with me.  AARGH! I was so mad.  Leaving work is a hassle.  We have to find a sub to cover my classes and usually they can't find one so the have to get other teachers willing to give up their planning period to cover--not fun.  We had a long talk.  My heart just broke when he said he just wanted to be with me.  Needless to say I wasn't mad for long but the Wii was taken away for a week because he lied.

Well this is the 5th straight week I have played with the challenges over at Get Your Sketch On.  I am really like their sketches.  Here is this week's sketch.
Here is my take on the sketch:

Christmas Bears

Michael loves stuffed animals.  My mom for Christmas bought him these 2 bears.  He went crazy over them.  He named them Yellow Bear and Chocolate Bear.  These were pictures of him after he opened the presents.

For this layout I used the Echo Park Merry Christmas line.  Love that line!! I thought the colors were perfect for the colors in the picture.


 I love this die cut sticker with the lights--way too cute!  I also used the border sticker of the holly.
 I loved the letter stickers that came with the kit so I used a combination of all of them for the title.
 In this corner I used the journaling tag and stamped Celebrate (an Ali Edwards stamp) and added another die cut of the presents.
For the actual journaling tag I used a nestabilities die cut and stamped it with the coordinating paper trey ink stamp.

Supplies
bazzill, echo park, paper trey ink, hero arts chalk ink, memento ink, ali edwards stamp

Well I hope everyone has a great weekend.  We have NOTHING planned.  I am so excited.  We are supposed to get more snow on Saturday but we shall see.  I know that whenever the kids are asleep I will be on the couch with a book and a fire going in the fireplace.  I am going to RELAX!!  How about you--what are your plans?

Don't forget to post a comment on this POST to enter to win a $40 gift certificate at the CSN stores.  I will pick a winner on Sunday and announce the winner in my Monday post.  I will also have a new layout to share as well. 

Thanks for stopping by and I will see you on Monday!

As always, I love your layout! How cute! And even though it was a royal pain, your story is a sweet one. Someday you and your son will be saying, "Remember when....?".:-) TFS!

Awwww that is just precious that Jack wanted the day with you. Love it.
My daughter did this when she was little, I was a stay at home mom, so it wasn't a problem. I had a talk with her about lying and we moved on and enjoyed our day together.
Your layout is adorable.
