Larkspurs and the Aquarium

This card uses the new Year of Flowers Set from PTI: Larkspurs. I first stamped a script stamp then the image 3 times then I cut a oval out of the center to allow for a sentiment to be placed there. I colored all images with copics, stamped the sentiment (PTI), and a few butterflies and then attached to the back of the floral panel.

Yesterday I took the boys to the aquarium, it was my birthday and I wanted to do something fun with them. Owen went last year for a school trip, but it was so crazy with all the kids, he didn't get much of a chance to explore. It is a very nice aquarium, but for me growing up in MD, I thought all aquariums were like the Baltimore Aquarium. The first time I went I wanted to know where the rest of it was. I have since adjusted my expectations and do enjoy the experience. Owen's favorite parts were the snakes and the touch pool, I had to drag him away from the lady running it. Wyatt loved the poison dart frogs and the spiney lobster, he thought the lobster was chasing him and would squeal and run only to go back and tell it "No get me".  We all had a great time!

I love this photo, his crazy hair and that smile!

Watch out there is an Alligator behind you boys
