Pioneer Days...

Hello and Happy Saturday Everyone! It's that time of
year were it's super crazy busy in my neck of the woods...
Utah celebrates it's birthday which means everyone here
celebrates too!
Lots of visitors come to town and spend their
money (that's the best part) ;)
And of course Celebrate Utah becoming a state! HAHA!
We always have a schedule of events
for our celebration and today is the Parade and
lots of vendors at the park and shopping throughout
town... It certainly helps all the businesses out! :O)
Followed by some other events and the day
ends with a beautiful Fireworks display! :O)
During all of this madness I realized I had to take a minute
and create something... Do you know why? Well...
I'll tell ya why.... My son's birthday is tomorrow and I
always have time to make something for one of my boys!
The day that I don't have time means I got a problem!
So the other night when I was exhausted... I thought for a minute
on what my son likes.... I always try to make them a card that
represents them in some way... Last year I made him a cool
record card with a bass & amp (Click Here to see that Card)
and this year, I created this:
My son LOVES Bacon! I mean he really, really LOVES it!
So when I saw this cut over at SVG Cutting Files
I knew I had to have it!
I know it will put a smile on his face....
Card stock - SU
Digital Designer Paper - Carta Bella
Bacon & Shape Card - SVG Cutting Files
Balloons - Silhouette Store
Googlie Eyes - My Stash

And here's the inside sentiment....
I think it'll make him laugh! :O)
Any who... that's about all I have for today...
I've got a full day of work ahead of me
So, Happy Pioneer Day and thanks so
much for stopping by!
