Blowin' Things Up!

I am so happy that I decided to do LOAD again this time! :) I may not have been able to keep up with the voraciousness that I had in May, but I am inspired and that makes it all worth it. :) On day 11 in May, I had over 15 layouts done...right now on LOAD Day 11..I have 4! ;)

A little back story to this layout of mine. :) On July 4th of this year, we finally decided to let Jon light off his OWN fireworks. If ANY of you truely know me then you know that this was one of the hardest things for me to do. Jon is my oldest, but it is still so hard for me to let go of him and let him grow the way he needs to. But, with a little of Garth's coaxing, I was ok with it. :)

One of the things that Jon HAD to do is blow up some of his "guys", you know...action figures. He had spent weeks picking out what he thought was the PERFECT combo of guys to BLOW UP.

In the end, he blew an arm off of one and burned another, but he got what he wanted out of it and loved the experience of it all. :)

The Layout

The little bit of journaling I did was on this star I cut from some MME paper.

I cut the "cool" from a DCWV "Boys" Transparancy booklet. I thought it was PERFECT!

Thanks for looking! :)


  1. Boys and blowin' things up. I guess it is for sure a "guy thing" that they have to experience.
    Jon's Dad blew up a toliet in the boys bathroom in high school.
    Pure craziness! Love this layout, he will enjoy this one as he gets older!

  2. Wow, you are definitely brave to let him do that...I won't even let my husband do it! Way too risky IMO.

    Great LO though! -Love the star repetition!!

  3. Wow you are daring

    Love your layout

  4. I forgot to add I gave you a blog award - check my post today for details

  5. daring and love it .. love those stars too .. perfection
