Weekly Challenge #363

Good Monday Morning!

Hey, i hope you had a good week - i had a great birthday/mother's day weekend!

B-rad and i went to a late night showing of Infinity Wars, i have so many feelings. If you've seen it, you understand.  

ready for the show

mmmm popcorn
 Saturday morning the boys woke me up with hugs and kisses and showered me with gifts - and b-rad made me breakfast!  we ate outside on the deck for the first time this year, and then we played some board games.   We took the kids to the store and bought chewie an early birthday present - a NEW BIKE!! he's so excited.

We got some ice cream, and played outside with the dog and then had some bbq burgers!

My buddy and i - taking a birthday selfie
 Artoo and Dad made me a birthday cake!

Celebrate 38!

Sunday morning we had a repeat of being showered with love and hugs and kisses and gifts for Mother's Day!!  And a repeat of having breakfast made for me.  The rest of the day we did a lot of yardwork and then we had my mom and dad over for cake and ice cream!

Happy Mama's Day, Mama
 OH, and also - Sunday was this little girlie's first birthday!  She was treated to a giant ice cube cake with all her favourite treats frozen inside - like strawberries and cucumber and carrots!!  She had a good day, what a good pupper.

Happy Birthday Luna!

All said, it was a great weekend.  

Weekly Challenge #363: "Laura's Auras"
So, carrying on with the theme of my favourite challenges for May - this week's challenge is to really get your "AURA" on!  I had fun with this tile because it was one of those tiles where i just thought: "What would happen if i did this?"  and it was kind of freeing to just let go that way.  i stopped worrying about what it would look like in the end, and just kept adding more and more and more. 

laura's auras!
Give it a try! I think you'll like it!

thanks for your patience with the videos - i've been having some issues with my video editing software, but again - the video is filmed so i'm going to do my best to get them uploaded evenutally.  hang tight.  i hope to get to them soon.

have a great week everyone!
