Back To School

So last week we did Meet the Teacher for Victoria. She will be in Ms. Brossard's class this year. Her teacher seems really nice. She is really young. Victoria liked her:)

We did orientation for Mattie. There is no longer bus pickup/drop-off for our area:( He will be taking Spanish this year. He is now a 7th grader:) One more year and then it's off to high school. Yikes!!!

So the first week of school is almost officially over. Everyone has been doing really well with the adjustment of schedule and such. No big problems yet; everything is running smoothly:)

Things here at home "solo" have been a little boring to say the least. On Tuesday I went by my mom's and took her to run an errand then me and Lal went out to lunch with Jav. I picked up the kids and then drove Lal back to my mom's.

Other than that, I haven't really done much or gone anywhere. I spent Monday cleaning up the house and tomorrow I need to run and do some grocery shopping for next week.

I went by Scrapbook Heaven yesterday evening and picked up some of the new Elsie Jack & Abby and some of those really cute Daily Dose journaling cards. Oh, and last weekend I finally caved and bought the Big Shot. I am going to sell my old Sizzix (which is still in excellent condition;) at the 911 yard sale in September...which reminds me...I have to start purging, pricing and boxing what I plan to get rid of.

Victoria's birthday is coming up at the beginning of next month so we need to finalize what we plan on doing to celebrate. She wants to invite along some girlfriends to go somewhere or do something:) We bought some cute little Hannah Montana goodie boxes to give out:) I really need to get on the ball with that. I have lots of gifts to wrap and invites to write out, etc. etc.

I finally motivated myself to do a little bit of scrapping today. Of course it's a lift...another one from Mama2my3princes on I just LOVE her work. It's just so fab!!!

The notebook paper is Karen Foster and the white "letter" paper is KI...Bazzill Edge and textured cardstock, Heidi Swapp bookplate and chipboard alphas in black and ledger. I used my first Bigz die for the arrow and the button is Doodlebug. Oh, that strip of striped pp is Karen Foster as well; last years school line:)

On Monday Victoria lost a tooth and the Tooth Fairy totally forgot to pick it up. So she put it under her pillow again and wouldn't you know it...She forgot AGAIN!!! ...(boy did I have some guilt:()

Last night while brushing her teeth her other loose tooth came out as well. She has a tendency to lose her teeth in pairs:) So she got to put TWO teeth under her pillow and the Tooth Fairy FINALLY came and left a whopping $20 for being so late to pick up the first tooth. She was REALLY excited about that this morning:)

What I Did Today...

Boy, did we get some awful rain yesterday. We were stuck inside the house all day:( I wanted to get some scrapping done, but I couldn't get my printer to work and my computer was running REALLY slow:(

Today we woke to a few clouds and the sun finally broke through so I made a trip out to Walmart to look at printers. I got another HP. This one is soooo cool. You can actually print off the memory card without being hooked up to the computer. And the quality is AWESOME!!!

So I got my pic printed today and I worked on this LO. It's a lift off of Robinberdz (not sure of the spelling) from

I used a Heidi Swapp ghost butterfly and traced it onto some Cosmo Cricket Dutch Girl pp and cut it out with my Cutterbees. I added gems to the center. All papers are Dutch Girl:) TFL

These Days...

Today I received my license in the mail!!! Since I took the test, I had the temporary paper one and today I got my official license. Pretty cool:)

I have been driving around quite a bit. Monday I hit Hobby Lobby first thing in the am to pick up some of the Spare Parts stuff that is half off; cool little canisters of silk blooms and some cool embellies.

Also picked up the new Wild Asparagus paper pad that HL got in. Didn't have that one yet:)

Tuesday I went to my mom's and took her to run her errands. My mom took us out to lunch and then I headed back home.

Yesterday was my unmotivated, "chill" day. Just hung out at home and did pretty much nada, but today I called Lal up to see if she wanted to to run around with me so I went and picked her up. I went back to HL to get a couple more canisters of those silk blooms. I opened the ones I bought the other day and I just LOVED them. There are three different shaped blooms in three differnt shades of the color in each canister. I went back and got the pinks and yellows.

Went by Big Lots and found all these cool KI goodies that ppl over at were talking about.

Went next door to the Dollar Tree and picked up some of those foam thickers and stitched rubons for a friend of mine up in Michigan;)

Here's some really cool chipboards I found at DT last week. I kept hearing ppl on mention them, but I couldn't find them at any of the DTs here. Finally found them!!! They are the same ones that HL carries; Paper Studio, for $3.99!!!

Think that pretty much sums up what I've been up to. Hopefully get some scrapping done with all this new stuff I have bought:)

More LOs from Crop Night

Totally forgot to upload my two other LOs from crop night.

I found this one on Someon posted premade LOs they were selling on ebay. I finally used some of my MME Magnolia. I find it so hard to use that pad. These are pics of my son last year at the coast on his boogie board.

A lift from Scrapbooks Etc. Opened up my Phoebe pack:) The corner rubons are Paper Studio. The rubon is Phrase Cafe (and it shifted on me while I was rubbing so my title is kind of off:(, Prima flowers, mini brads, Chatterbox chipboard letters, Scrapworks Shimmer Shapes flower. The notebook paper is Paper Studio. I cut the scallop and made the tiny holes with a hole punch:) TFL

New LO

Something I worked on yesterday and finished up last night. It's a lift off of I love the "threading" of the ribbon. Good use of ribbon and eyelets that I don't normally use:)

I used Lil' Davis chipboard letters, Doodlebug blooms and some Rusty Pickle buttons. Not sure who makes the little flower button though. I cut my silhouette hearts using my Cricut and some MM glitter adhesive paper I got at 911 a while back. The "coaster" stamp is Autumn Leaves and the notebook paper is Paper Studio.

I went by HL yesterday to get some textured cardstock and I found all sorts of new Spare Parts goodies; canisters of silk blooms, all sorts of shaped and gem brads, clock faces...lots worth checking out. I hope they are on sale next week:)
