Teachers Rule

Well I used an older kit of Meredith Cardall called "Bushels of Fun" to make this for my sons team teachers. I printed on photo paper then cut in half and tied it to a multi pack of tissue boxes and a pack of sparkly magnets.

Back to School, Cool!

Well I have a 5th grader, 7th grader and a 9th grader. And I'm glad they are back in school on a regular routine other than sitting around playing Minecraft all day- except my daughter luckily has not found it interesting- she on the other hand found twitter.
Josh gets an extra picture because as a 7th grader he got to start on Monday and learn his schedule and figure out the whole Jr. High thing.
But luckily I still have Nick in elementary school and I walked with him to school and got the traditional picture by the school sign and he didn't even mind me waiting around to see him line up and walk in with his class.
The house is quieter during the day and I like it. But after school it's hustle and bustle just the way it should be.

Girls, Girls, Girls!

I finally made some scrapbook pages and probably only because I needed to put them up at church to show everyone the fun we had at girls camp. I used the new kit "Keep Calm-Garden On" by Meredith Cardall so go check it out along with all her other fabulous designs.
I am the girls camp director and copied this awesome art idea that my sisters had done in their ward. By using an art canvas, pieces of scrapbook paper, mod podge (homemade too- 1 cup water to 1 cup white glue.) paint and then all sorts of embellishments. With the words: I AM and then they could pick any of the other words to represent who they are. They seemed to really like it and I think they turned out fabulous. I only got a few of the leaders to do it so I included their pics too.
