Something fun! 53

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, August 16, 2011 @ 7:57 AM |

Hi there! Hope you you are all having a great day! I wanted to share a few LO's I made while serving as a Design Team member for Spellbinders. You may have seen this one before published on the Scrapbooking.com site. The photo of Meredith was taken about 7 years ago during a vacation we took to Maui, HI:
and this is a LO featuring both Meredith and Connor standing on the Santa Monica Pier, CA taken about 8 years ago. They both sure have grown like weeks and are blossoming into beautiful, young adults :)
Connor has really been practicing his Shuffling moves! He is patiently trying to teach me but let me tell you, it is not as easy as it looks! Please feel free to check out his AMAZING video and let me know what you think so I can share with Connor! He is soooo proud of himself as he should be!

I'll be back tomorrow waltzing along with the Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz. Be Sweet :)

Heather Jensen said...

First: I am wiped out just watching...that is a cardio workout itself. I don't know how he kept going. He is a cutie. :)

Your LO's are fabulous. Love all that SB goodness. :)
Hugs~

Marge said...

Fabulous LOs, Mona; darling kiddos and Connor's seriously talented! I too am exhausted & I only watched -- that is a looong song!!! Think you'd better find him a talent agent soon!!! ;~)

Jeanne J said...

Connor - YOU ARE AMAZING! If you can make something LOOK easy you are really good at it - think about it! Think of your favorite sport celebrity - they make it look like there is nothing to it just like you! You look like you are just sliding accross the floor - no effort involved! I know - I'm Old - I'm not familiar with "Shuffling" but you are rocking this. Your style reminds me of James Brown (ok I tolf you I'm old) or MJ - and I don't mean Michael Jordan. Surf some utube of James Brown - he make sit look easy just like you! And everyone just stares!! Mona - lock up the house before the ladies find this one - I'm guessing it's too late!! HUGS! PS I'll be looking for you on "so you think you can dance"

Christina said...

Mona, Connor is so amazing! How does he make is feet move that fast! I could watch this video over and over and over! Tell him I'm a big fan now!
I'm also a big fan of you, Mona! These layouts are absolutely gorgeous! I love all the colors and textures! Great photos too! Tnx!

Silke Ledlow said...

OMG...tell Conner he totally rocks the shuffeling!!! Loved it!!! Your scrap pages are awesome too....sweet designs! Hugs ~S~

Linda R. said...

WOW!! I think I just lost 5 pound watching Conner dance.. I used to wonder how in the heck do people dance to that type of music.. Now I know.. He is great!!!

Both you LO look amazing..

Hugs, Linda
