ATC Holder and Tags

Another project using a Maya Road ATC hloder with Tags and Simple Stories Generation paper collection.
I am sure you all know by now how i love my hearts and these papers are goegeous!
This saying is so true,Alex and i have known each other for 25yrs and married for 23 of those.We have 2 sons Rory and Kane,2 dogs Storm and Rosie and have had numerous other pets.Through all the ups and downs that life has  thrown our way the one thing i know i can rely on is having each other!
With a few flash cards from Simple Stories, stamps and a Distress pad from Tim Holtz i covered the tags.
Using my crafty individual stamp again,looove it and more Tim Holtz quotes.
 Somtimes we get caught up in the big things in life that we forget to enjoy the little things . . . last night before heading off to bed i popped into Kanes room to check out his brand new . . . wait for  it . . . Record Player,remember them and vinyl LP`s?
Anyhoo we had a box full of old Lps in the garage. . .now belonging to Kane , lol . . . when i asked was there any that i would like , Yeahhhh bless him he popped on a Dirty Dancing LP for me ,so i had a wee boogie while he squinted at me with laughter in his eyes . . .to make a teenager smile is a huge accomplishment and if it takes me to go mad {not hard for me,lol}then so be it it is totally worth it to see that smile with a twinkle in his eyes!
So i am all for enjoying the small things in life because they really are the BIG THINGS that count!
Hope you enjoyed looking
