Catching Up....

I've been mia for a few days becasue my oldest (Timmy) just turned 10! Yikes. I can't believe it. Gosh. He's getting so big and so handsome. :) He goes into 5th grade this upcoming school year. He's a good kid. His birthday party will be this coming Saturday, which leads me to my "Catching Up post"... Today I'm doing Monday's inspiration and Wednesdays Etsy Finds all in one. Laugh. And my etsy finds are inspired by everything Birthday!
Aren't they lovely. Everyone of them. I would love to throw a party like this, but alas, Timmy thinks he's too big for themed stuff. Boys are seriously boring. HaHaHa Thank God I still get to throw themed parties for Aydie Pie. :)
Now then on to some inspiration...
Have you guys been to the Twig and Thistle Blog? It's so full of utter inspiration of all sorts. They recently featured these announcements and they are killing me! Aren't they gorgeous?
I was also just the other day inspired by Celine Navarro's Inspirational Tuesday where she does tutorials on her blog The Green Frog Studio. Her Butterfly Shadow Box Tutorial is just the inspiration I needed for my guestroom makeover. Thanks Celine. :)
And one more person of interest is Eva owner of Evalicious. I know most of you have probably already heard of her, but I recently refound her. HaHa She had a baby and is on mat.-leave, but she has some pretty promising stuff coming in September which I for one am definitely excited about! :) Can't wait. Her buttons and color combos definitely inspire me.
Last, but not least a layout of mine. This one is an old picture and even used old goodies, which makes me wonder.... How many of you out there try using your older product? It's so hard to say no to new product, but for the sake of waste not want not I always try to incorporate something I've had stashed for a while. :) I'll be back here soon with some of my Cha faves and flickr faves too! :)
Love Love
