OMGosh, was it really 2 months ago that I last posted. Well, it's been a crazy two months! I finally obtained a teaching position - who knew I would be this busy! I am just wondering...WHEN DO TEACHERS SLEEP?! Hopefully I will be able to join the living here again soon. It feels like I am able to finally breathe - of course TAKS is just around the corner...

These two pictures (above & below) are the fronts of the cards.
The photo below shows the backs of the cards.
Finally, this photo show the little tags that go inside the envelope cards.
Of course I am the slowest scrapper in the world, but I think they turned out really, really cute!

Yay for the holidays!! Beth gave me the cutest paper this month for my design team layouts - Christmas and Halloween. Two of my favorites holidays! Check out what I did with this new paper, which will be in at The Scrapbook Junkie soon if it isn't already there :)

Here are some pictures from our last visit with William. He is soo cute when he is happy! It makes me sad that at 5 years old he has such uncontrollable anger issues which may prevent us from adopting him :(
My baby girl and baby boy...
He plays so sweetly and quietly by himself for the most part. Here I snapped a picture of him playing kitchen (one of his favorite things to do). He was boiling fake eggs and using the oven mit to fan the pot. What an imagination!!

The first one is a Birthday layout that resembles some of the artwork in my favorite magazine, Somerset Studio. I am still working on their techniques, but it is so much fun roughing everything up and not worrying if I accidently get ink on the wrong piece of paper.
The second project is 2 pages from Prima's new fabric album. I just love the surfing beach theme, and the colors are amazing!
Hope you guys like them. July's projects won't be this late - LOL!
I still need to get the picture on here, but I am searching for the perfect one!
The tag on this page slips in behind the strip. I didn't have much paper left to make these two pages, so I had to piece them together. It turned out pretty cute though with the stitching, kinda like a madras blanket to go with the surfing/beach theme.

What a wonderful day I had today with my whole family! Lots of yummy goodies, swimming for the kids, and scrapping/chatting for the adults. I couldn't ask for a better day!

Gosh I miss Disney World! It's where the real world just disappears and we don't think about anything but enjoying our family time together - no schedules, no phones, no computers...just old fashioned fun!
