A couple of things..

This weekend I did manage to get some scrapping in. I get so overwhelmed when I go into my room that I almost dont want to even do anything anymore. I wish I could just start all over. Clear everything and only buy what I need for a specific project. Ohhhh but the papers are just sooo pretty. Just like this card for example. I loveee the Basic Grey dinosaurs papers. I used them on this card for my Dads birthday card. I was going to say something like older than dinosaurs but decided against it in the end hahahaa. Its simple, but hey I managed. And I got the twine idea from my friend Jenn! :)

I also finished this... can you believe Ive been working on this for about 3 weeks in my spare time? I just couldnt figure out how I wanted to do it or work it. Ahh but finally it all came together this weekend. I love the red and brown together. I think I may give it as a gift..or maybe as a blog giveaway! I got the frame from Big Lots.. it was only 50 cents!!! So what a deal ya know. I bought 3 so and gave 1 away to my niece, but still have another to do. Cant wait!

I also made the teacher an altered treat can. I wish Id taken a pic of it.. it was so stinkin' cute. Im going to make another so I'll be sure to post a pic of it soon. Save your crystal light containers because thats what I used, it only took an hour to pull together so I know you'll want to try it when you see it.

Today is Hunters first full day of school.. and Im not going to lie...I came home, cried ... no... sobbed. I went straight to his bedroom and laid on his bed crying my pea-pickin' heart out. I knew today would be hard on me, but I didnt realize just how much. *sighs*

I have lots to do this week, its Prestons graduation on Friday and we are out of here on Thursday- so I hope I can post a bit more through out the week... if not.. have a great one folks. I'll be back with details of the graduation and pictures!!! :)

Aww Ang!! I love the card and frame...they are both so gorgeous! I haven't scrapped in months and I have to admit, I'm considering quitting. It just holds no desire for me any more. I'm sure I'll get back into it some day, but for right now....ehhh. And poor you on kiddo's first day! You'll be ok, he'll be ok, it's the circle of life! On my first child's first day of kindergarten, I bawled all day. On my last child's first day of kindergarten, I danced all day!!
