We must consume mass quantities of bottles.....
The other day my husband saw the baby in his hat and he picked him up and said We must consume mass quantities of bottles.....in the same voice that Dan Ackyroid said in the movie Cone Heads...... well I just thought it was so funny I made a page. Colby didn't think it was so funny taking the pic and wouldn't smile. I used the cricut for the star, the space ship, the bottle border, flame. The paper is scenic route metropolis, and doodlebug sugar coated. Hambly overlay. The aliens are Quickutz and the arrows are cuttlebug.
Here are the baby Thank You cards I made for the gifts Dusty Received. I just Loved them. I had to make six so I could be a little more special. I put a poem inside about how special his gift is. PLEASE SEE CLOSE UPS thx.
