Saturday Special!!!

My blog is looking a little bit different. I'm trying new things so be patient. I haven't quite figured it out yet! And if any of you can tell me how to add elements to my background page that would be sooo appreciated.

Anyway! ScrapMatters started having challenges on Saturday now too. Tuesday will be the Template Challenge and Saturday will be different fun and creative challenges. Today's challenge is about opposites. You can check it out here.

Here is my take on it...

I know, a boy page! Crazy huh! I went to the mall last week because my 6 year old has this horrible habit of crushing the backs of his shoes down and his pair he got for Christmas were trashed! So I went to the new Vans store in our mall, I don't know why I love Vans so much but I do. I found these cool pair of Old Sckool vans for Hayden, way cool right? Then I turn around and they have the matching shoes in crib shoes for the baby! Sooo cute! So of course I had to have them. I was way excited that I actually had a reason to scrapbook them! Yes, I'm a dork!

Now I have to go because prom is tonight and I have like 5 updo's to do but before I leave I found this way cute thing on one of the members at Cafe Mom's home page. I loved it and wanted to share!!!
