The GOOD and the BAD........

So the good...yesterday was my 15 year wedding anniversary. If you would have asked me 20 years ago if I would have envisioned myself being married for 15 years I would have said no way. But I was wrong.

And now the BAD..........I did not make the Creative Xpress DT again. I am so disappointed. I hate the feeling that my projects are not good enough in someone's eyes. Part of me wants to know "why" but then the other part of me says "you can't handle the truth". See in my misery I can still crack a joke. Sigh.........

The First Day of School....

Yes, already!! Can you believe it?! I feel kind of empty this morning. I really have enjoyed the summer with the boys. Sigh. I was looking at them yesterday after they got their haircuts and they are so grown up now.

So here is a picture of Jake on the first day of school. He is always ready for a photo:

And now one of Cameron:

Guess that is what you get when you are dealing with a "tween". Sigh. Hopefully he will have a good day. I think he was pretty nervous about school starting. He barely ate his breakfas.
I miss them both. And I think Charlotte does too.

"It's a Jungle" Door Hanger

This is another one of my projects for CreativeXpress (http://www.creativexpress.com/) that I had to do for May. My assignment was to use the "Wild Things" collection by Imaginisce. I made this door hanger. The door hanger could be used on a door or perhaps a party decoration. I also made it 12x12 so after it's use on the "door" or party decoration it could be placed in a scrapbook album with photos on it. Products used are: Imaginisce "Wild Things" collection, Life is a Beach Cricut Cartridge, Animal Kingdom Cricut cartridge, chipboard, Doodlebug flocked brads and Bazzill cardstocks.
Enjoy!

Back from CHA and vacation

Whew! I always say that I am going to be able to enjoy CHA and not feel so rushed, but like always it was work, work, work. But scrapbooking work is fun, so I still had fun. I even taught my first scrapbooking class. I think there was about 24 or 25. I think it went okay. The class was for Glitz designs (http://www.glitzitnow.com/). I taught (4) 8x8 layouts made out of the Hot Mama line. It was fun. One of my students was from Madagascar. And she looked about 8 months pregnant. Can you imagine?

Here are a few photos. Keep in mind they are from my iphone and I was in a hurry. The class was over so the girls were packing up. Like I said, it was my first scrapbooking class to ever teach and I have learned a little from this. (Like how much prep is involved). I think it went very well though.
