Boys, love and Sale

WHEEE- it's Friday and the build up to the "lurrrvvee Day" next week. Well ok, we don't do much on Valentines day here (never have since we were dating) but I do get a card from Hubby every year(and a weekend away now and again- lol). Any plans on your side??

To Celebrate Valentines I'm having a 40% off SALE at SugarHill Co: SugarHillco :: KimB .

Starts today 10th Feb and ends Wednesday 15th Feb"
* grab coffee- it's Friday posting- lol*
At the beginning of this year my dear CT requested more "boy" styled kits as we all have sons and not many kits to scrap them with... We have the baby kit done  (Precious Beginnings (boy) Kit) and I know that I want to finish an Album for Nathan for his 21st with a "general" theme and colour tones running through it ;-)
After hearing some really sad news last weekend it got me to thinking of MY BOY... and just how much he is MY HEART and MY STAR.. how I would be lost without him, how much I miss him and how everyday he can lift me up with his little messages of "hi mom, what ya doing?" Hey ol bag.. luv ya! lol

This week he seriously couldn't have picked a better time to have me crying with laughter..

He excitedly sent me a message on BBM that he was going to be playing cricket for the company he now works for this Sunday against our local Traffic Dept! He hasn't played cricket since school days when he played for TWO teams.. He played for the 1st team as their opening batsmen and was the 2nd Team Captain too-lol . So he was a little worried he wouldn't be up to PAR...

The conversation went on about "easy as riding a bicycle" to having a quick pre-game so his muscles could remember what to do..... To me REMINDING him not to forget his "ball box" (which covers his tender area's-lol) and his Helmet.
After remembering the disaster I had of having to go buy a BIGGER box for him after getting the "junior one" when he was still in Junior school and it not fitting- uhum>>>> lol. I sent him a message saying.. Well maybe you need a "bigger box" now ? BWHAHAHA

The reply seriously came back so quick that I CRIED with laughter at it being sooo "BOY"- lol

"Mom, always been this big.. blessed at a young age.. the team in Junior School thought my "box" WAS my Helmet"!!!
BWWWWWWWWWWWWAHAHAHAHAHAHA- yup, my boy is a man for sure and he is going to kill me ;-P

So with that in mind.. this is how my "Valentines" kit came about for this year-

ROFL! You son is FUNNY! I adore that new kit, I only have a son and also have a hard time getting boys kits, so this is just perfect, and thank for that adorable add-on.

Hi Kim

I just tried to buy but SugarHill is saying that the coupon code in the newsletter is not valid. I copied it straight from the newsletter.


clara said...

Kim B said...

Sue the coupon is not for SugarHill but for Scrap Matters ;-)
My Store at Sugar Hill is on Sale at 40% off already- no coupon needed.

Ok, so this will sound nuts, but I got a vintage grab bag you made with someone (laitha, I think?) about a year ago, then dropped out of scrap community for a while, and couldn't for the life of me remember where I got it. I've been a huge fan of sugarhill co for a while now, and JUST TODAY realized you were the kimb who's damask patterns I love! ;) And the good news for me is you're having a sale! Bad news, of course, is I've already killed my scrap budget. But have loaded up my wish list with all your goodies, and am gonna see if I can figure out how to subscribe to your blog. Hopefully I'll be able to grab a few of my very faves...if not, definitely next sale! Not gonna lose track of you again, promise. So just wanted to drop you a line and let you know an old fan had found you again. BTW, fabulous link to hybrid exploding box! I've been looking for the right project for some cute graphics of sock monkeys, and that'll be perfect. Thanks so much!

Ps... yes, yes... your son is definitely gonna go nuclear if he reads your blog. But it made me laugh like a loon. ;)
