Yesterday Randy and Sam were up at 5am to head off to Toronto for Fan Exbo. Sam had a great time dispite the large crowds. Meeting some of the cast from Walking Dead, and having her picture taken with Chewboca from Star Wars. While they were away Grant and I spent our day doing things he liked. A walk around the local Farmers Market, where we didn't find anything of interest. We then spent a couple hours at Scales Nature Park, looking a snakes, turtles, tortoise, lizards. A trip to Michaels was my favorite. Then off to Lost World Reptile to replace a rock we had purchased to Eunice that was too big. We ended up coming home with a new gecko, a male that looked similar to the male we lost. This little guy is nearly full grown and you can handle him, which gives Grant more incentive to handle Eunice.
I painted the flowers with acrylic paints, and the leaf with a sharpie marker. I even added a little jewel to one flower. You can then use them as embellishments for your cards and scrapbook pages.

Evening my fello bloggers. The count down is on. Six more sleeps and we are off on holidays. Kids are getting excited.
My son is a rock phanatic. I find rocks everywhere. Every so often we have to go through the house and clear them out. Putting them back outside. Recently he found one he really liked and asked to make a necklace. Tonight we sat down and crafted a necklace for him.

Looks like it's a work day for the boys. To guys have shown up with chainsaws. Apparently all the guys are back in the bush with chainsaws and wood chipper going.
Last night I was playing with my Basic Grey paper before I packed it up to get the next months out. This is the little cutie I came up with. It also fits a few challenges. It's been so long since I've done a challenge. Feels good.
