This is Deuce. He is about 12 weeks old. We
adopted him from a local rescue called http://creekbendsanctuary.com/.
If you are local to Mobile and are looking for a sweet
kitty, I would check with Jennifer and John at
Creek Bend Sanctuary.

This first photo is Lukas playing the pitcher position. This was his first time playing tee-ball. His coach said he was one of the most improved players on the team. He loved playing.
Next is Jacob... This is Jacob's 3 season playing coach pitch league. This season he played 1st base and he was an awesome player. I was so amazed at how much Jacob improved this season.
I wasn't able to get a good photo because all of his games were played at night.
The second photo was taken at Jacob's end of the season party... This is the trophy he received and it holds his game ball.

This will be a true challenge for me because I don't know if I've ever posted 2 days in a row

Lookie Lookie what I got in the mail!
I'm a Bzz agent for Bzzagent.com and I was lucky enough to get into the Elmer's and X-ACTO
BzzCampaign. If you have NO idea what I'm talking about.. go to http://www.bzzagent.com/
and join. You will not regret it!
Elmer's CraftBond and X-ACTO Designer series products are wonderful to
use if you do any type of paper crafting. Elmer's has top quality glue sticks,
glue pens, gel pens, sticky Spots (my FAV) , tape dispensers, runners and much
more. Their prices range from about $2-$9. All adhesives are acid-free
and archival safe.
The X-ACTO designer series includes top quality scissors, trimmers, rulers, punches
knives and cutting mats. Xacto prices range from $2-$20.
I received the Elmer's All purpose Glue stick, a permanent tape runner, a clear glue
pen, and stick spots. AND.. a pair of zig-zag edge scissors, scalloped scissors and
a corner rounder punch.
These products are right up my ally! I'm totally in love with playing with paper
and glue (hence the blog name Glued2paper, haha!)
I've already tested out the corner rounder, sticky spots, and tape runner.
These products work wonderfully. Check out what I've made so far.
I used the tape runner on both of these layouts
and the sticky spots on the buttons and flowers.
They are there to STAY! I love it when I can find a
good adhesive to work!
I also tried out the corner rounder on this layout.. little hard to see but it did the job
