Politically Correct @ age seven - FUNNY story!!

Well, I'm very excited to share this layout with you today...first, because I LOVE the's one of those "document the funny things your kids says"..and I love this sketch from Susan Stringfellow over at SKETCH SAVVY that this is the third layout I've done with it.    This is for the "OPEN CHALLENGE"  (meaning we can use whatever sketch we choose) over at SKETCHES IN THYME.

I used Basic Grey Oliver...and before you read the journaling....  how politically savvy are you???  Do you know what an "earmark" is?  As I've repeated this conversation to friends, I didn't realize how many adults don't know what earmarks are... (don't email me if I don't get this description exactly's just how "I" see earmarks)  --  so basically, it's like a little "promise for money for something" that a legislator puts in a bill to get funds for a little project in their state.  Like, let's say a bill is sponsored by a senator from Ohio and I'm a senator in Arizona.  I have them put in a promise/earmark for $100,000 for light rail funding and then I'll promise to vote yes on the bill.  -- Not exact...but close... and basically the way, we've explained it to Joseph.

And at SCRAP OUR STASH our challenge for Feb is here's a little layout I did using a pic that Joseph took a few months ago...ok, I guess about a year ago....
