First Day of Grade 1 and a card!

Well today the day is here, Ariel's first day of grade 1!!!  She is officially a full time student now going to school every day, :<   I could tell she was nervous today and she told me that the first day is scary!   :<  But once we got to school and found her desk and put all her shiny new school supplies out she was over it!  I could see it on her face that she was fine and happy to be there!  Oh did that ever make me feel better!  I really tried not to cry but I did in the hallway!  I may just be one of those mom's!  :>  Today I am babysitting my friend's 3 boys and it has really been helping to keep me busy and not think about it! So here are a few photos from her first day:

You can really see on her face that she is nervous (she brought her chickie in her schoolbag during the day)

Looking way happier at school by her desk:

With her desk mates:

When she came home all she could talk about was how much fun she had at school!  She told me that she can't wait to go again!  :>  That makes me so very happy!

I do have a card to share today.  I made it last week.  Pretty simple but I really enjoyed making it!

I embossed the butterflies from the Lauderdale Set by Hero Arts onto patterned paper by My Mind's Eye Lime Twist collection.  So love the fun colors!

1 week from today until I leave for Scrapfest!  I am so looking forward to Scrapfest!  It's my third year going and I have such a great time!  Love my girlfriends I travel with and love all my flickr girls I meet up with!  :>  And so love the shopping!  I am looking forward to just having some fun!

Wow I can see Ariel was nervous, but as you say, she looks very happy once she was there.... it is a big day when they start full time. Love your card Anita. Such fun papers.

Anita, look how sweet Ariel looks! So glad she liked her first day of first grade. My youngest son, who also started first grade, ran in without even turning around to say goodbye! I stood there for a minute thinking, "Well, that was rather anti-climactic!"

Your card is FABULOUS...thise papers are delicious! Great embosing, too!

Have a great time at Scrapfest...sounds like a blast! I'll be thinking of you (probably from the side of some soccer field or Chuck E Cheese birthday party!). Take lots of pics...I live vicariously!
