Crazy as a Fox!

Ok, sometimes I really think my husband is as crazy as a fox! lol

Canada Day started off with glorious weather that carried on throughout the whole day. The sun was shining and there was a nice breeze. What better day to fly a kite, right? Well, my hubby had bought a Canada Day kite and was so excited that he got to fly it on Canada Day. So he brought it out and spent the good part of an hour trying to get it off the ground ... lol. He finally got it up in the air but it wasn't doing too well and the string broke. Then he said because it didn't have a tail it wasn't balanced properly. So he cut up a plastic grocery bag into strips and made a tail for it. Then said the string wasn't strong enough so he was going to fix that!!! Oh yeah, he fixed it ... he brought out his fishing rod and tried the kite to that. LOL Now being a proud Canadian, he sat back for another hour and was dazzled by his new invention - kite fishing. It actually worked quite well but he did not feel like a true Canadian until he also had a beer beside him. What can I say? Only in Canada ... LOL

Crazy as a fox word art is part of "Expressions Word Art #4" available HERE.

To me the kite was really nice to watch against the beautiful blue sky but I was looking forward to the fireworks that night. And it was worth the wait.

One of the parks here has a music fest all summer every Wednesday and Saturday. They had one also last night for Canada Day. It's right on a lake and after the live music there was a spectacular fireworks show.

To my fellow Canadians, I hope you also celebrated this wonderful country~!

In my last post I needed a picture for my layouts that was 'Canadian' looking and I decided to add some Canada hats to my daughter and her friend to make my layout. After I made the layout I was thinking 'That was fun, it changed the whole picture'. So I thought, you know scrapbooking does not always have to be serious and proper. Adding hats to people in pictures makes it kind of fun.

So this is what went into LLL Creations Dollar Mart today;

Hats for Fun - 25 hats for only $1 - Get them HERE.

Have some fun and dress up your pictures.

Speech Bubble word art available HERE.
Speech Bubbles also make your layouts fun! See more HERE.
