Quote of the Week

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

That is what I have been doing for a little over 2 weeks. Giggling. Every time I see this picture I crack up. Does it make you laugh?

The challenge at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge is SLAP YOUR KNEE ....FUNNY. I really didn't have any "funny" stamps. So I had to get creative.

The front of my card says, "Sending you a little birthday advice from a Wise Old Owl...."

When you open the card...


I think it is hilarious and everyone in my family chuckled. I'm not sure if that is because it is funny in general or because the picture inside is of MY BROTHER.
That could be why we think it is funny. So you tell me. What do you think?

My brother was playing around on the last day of our camping trip with my camera. We took all kinds of pictures of funny things. This was the very last picture of that day. He is holding a little ducky that says, "I love you"....that's the "gift."

I am sending this to my dad as a belated birthday card. I know it will crack him up. I may have to make one for every member of the family.

I just love this picture because it shows my brother as he really is.... the fun loving guy. He is a beautiful person both inside and out. Yes, he really is beautiful on the outside too! He doesn't usually wear goggles.


Most of the time though, you will find him acting goofy.

He can, however, be very deep, extremely sensitive and full of knowledge. He is so talented in so many artistic things.
You will always find him laughing or making people laugh. I think he is AMAZING!
Today is my tribute to him. Thanks Shawn for always making me laugh and smile with your FUNNY, FUNNY ways! I Love you!

I also wanted to share one more thing because laughter and smiles are infectious.

This is something that I watched last year and it cracked me up. Probably because this is how I always imagined my sister old boyfriend dancing. The guy (Matt) in the video looks a lot like my sister's old boyfriend (who we loved, BTW, so I am NOT making fun of him).

My hope is that it at least makes you smile.

CLICK HERE! Then hit the PLAY button.

Dance and Laughter....they defy all language barriers.

After all that, I hope you join us for a FUN challenge this week at SSC. Please check out the design teams cute cards and then play along for a chance to win some goodies.

Loved the card....I'm sure that your dad will too. I hope Shawn sees your blog. A wonderful tribute. I had to agree with everything you said about him. He is a wonderful son and I am so proud of the young man that he turned out to be. I am so blessed to have such wonderful "kids".
