my #1

Hi all! My oldest is getting ready to start 1st grade next week and I am having some issues with all of my kids getting older. I love seeing them grow but at the same time I want them to stay little forever :/ Anyway, I wanted to make/give him a card the night before just in case he has any butterflies about going back. Also, football season (American football) has started! So, with that I couldn't help but use the cutest little squirrel football players from Clearly Besotted.

Thankful for you

Hi all! I hope you are enjoying the summer. It is going by so fast! Personally, I am looking forward to fall too though. It is my favorite season :) Which made the challenge at Time Out a lot of fun for me now. The challenge is Autumn with the optional twist of speed stamping.

Thank you for being you

Hi all! Its been hard finding time to craft lately which I can't really complain about since it is fun stuff like vacations. But today, I had a couple of hours free and decided to spend it with paper and ink :)

Puppy Friend

Hi! This has been a really relaxing week. I spent it up north in Michigan for a family vacation. If you like the outdoors and get a chance, the upper peninsula and the northern part of the lower peninsula of Michigan are gorgeous. Actually, most of Michigan is like that once you get out of the suburbs :) We were lucky because we had warm sunny days pretty much the whole time too.

Anyway, I got back and had a box waiting here from My Favorite Things! They had a great release and sale right before we left and I couldn't resist. After a week away I was itching to do some crafting :)
