What A Day!!!! What A Life!!!

Okay, this is a picture of my very artistic and very cute little three year old. She decided to "color" with her big sisters new markers. My 8 year old daughter has her own art desk in her room and my three year old likes to "Borrow" art supplies (: I would have shown you the full  picture but she also likes to create in her panties, LOL! Lucky for me these were the washable markers so it came off very easily. I was just commenting  on Cammie's Blog today  with her little girls picture playing in  glitter. I have to admit it made me laugh, well I am now paying for it! My day has turned out crazy!!!! 
My little (3 year old) girl missed the potty and didn't tell me. This was her way of "cleaning up" the evidence of her mistake (: I had to take a picture, I am just so glad no one slipped in it!!!
I was so inspired today by Cammie's mess and my own messes, that I decided to create a card in honor of back to school. This card is for me, yes me! Life is so much easier with half of my little darlings at school (: I seem to be able to keep up with household duties easier. I used this old stampin up stamp, because I thought the little girl snickering was perfect! She reminds me of every mischievous little girl out there who loves to play in her mommies art supplies (: Did I mention that we just got home from camping? I still have all that to clean up and put away!!!! 
The sentiment on the front reads all things grow with love, by stampin up. I have to remind myself that my little mess makers will grow up and I will miss this part of my busy life. I just need to relax and remember that all things grow with love (:  I hope you enjoyed my little slice of life (: 
Let me know what you think!!!!

too cute, like you said at least they were washable, and it was only her legs, not her face as my son has done, LOL

What a day! I have a couple of artists myself... skin makes the best canvas, you know?! Good for you making yourself a card... now you have more time on your hands to create! Enjoy!

Ah yes, the little messmakers. Mine have 2 more weeks of summer. I'm enjoying having them around though. They all go back to school in a couple of weeks and though it will be a relief I'll also miss them.

if it helps any, i think i am living your life, too! i only have two of my own, but i watch my neices and the combo of all four of them turns my life inside out and upside down. your daughter drawing on herself reminds me of my neice and the "missing the potty" incident is all the sudden an almost everyday occurance with my daughter! anyway ... hang in there. i like to say "its a good thing they are cute" hee hee! great card by the way :) love the cheery colors!
