Boy Oh Boy!

What are little boys made of?
Snips and snails, and puppy dogs tails
That's what little boys are made of!"

This fun blog hop is to showcase all things Boy. Come join us as we display creations that show each person's interpretation of Boy Oh Boy! 

Your hostess for this hop is Jearise at and she is so happy to have you as part of this hop. She'll pick one lucky person to receive a $10 gift card to Joann's Fabric and Craft. You must do two things to be eligible: take the time to hop through all the blogs and then let her know that they have done so and also become a follower of LORBY'S WORLD.

We have a very special sponsor on this hop: PSA Stamps ( please also check out their blog ( These stamps are awesome... They are peel and stick stamps that work perfectly on cards and envelopes or any project that is in need of a cute stamp.

PSA Stamps ( is also giving away 1 stamper and 2 peel and stick packs of the winner's choice. MRSP is $55. Libby O will have directions on how to become qualified for the stamps on her blog so make sure you hop through all the blogs and land on hers at the end. You wouldn't want to miss a marvelous opportunity to win these stamps.

So if you have discovered this hop by chance, please start with and continue through our list of blogs but if you've come from April's blog then you're on the right track. Yay!

For your viewing pleasure today, I'm sharing my son's 7th birthday party invitations.  First off, I must say these things are a BOOGER to put together.  His list only includes 12 people minus Daddy (LOL!) so I only have 7 more to make because the other 4 are me, his brother, and 2 sisters.  I can't believe that I am agreeing to this little boy's request for a Cars party. I omitted the details as I didn't want EVERYONE on the internet to know about the party.  I'll just stamp and hand write the details inside later.

Now, on to my blog candy. I have a small pack of stickers and embellishments to give away to one person who comments on my blog.  Please leave me a way to get in touch with you if you win.  I enjoy having new followers friends but I want you to do because you like what you see and not just to win a prize. 

Thank you for joining us today and now you can skip a dee doo dah on over to my friend and DT sister Amy's blog and see her wonderful creation. Remember, I love you and there ain't NOTHING you can do about it.

I might have to use this idea for Tanner's half birthday. His birthday is Jan 2 so we decided this year to have a half birthday party instead of a birthday party (too close to Christmas). This is a great idea for the party.

Ha ha...Oh, I do know how these things can be such a labor of love! It's a toss up between feeling a warm glow over seeing your child's big smile and wondering if you were nuts to take on such a project! These look AMAZING however...and I hope you keep one for your party layout! Already a follower!

Awww ... love this invitation. I wanted to do a Cars b-day card for son (who turned 16) but my daughter (who's 19) informed me he was too old for that :( So enjoy it while you can!!! :)
