Hello my crafty friends! Today is Ariel's first day of Grade 2! Previous year's you may remember me not handling it very well and crying a lot! This year I got teared up but not the water works as previous years! She was so excited to go back to school and we really had a great summer! I was a kid who didn't love school so it's great that Ariel loves it! :> Although sometimes it's a bit insulting we do lots of fun stuff all summer long why does she want to go back? LOL!!!! Every year I make her a card for her lunch for her first day of school. She reminded me and told me how much she was looking forward to it! Today is Thursday so I also shared this card on the Scrapbooking Cafe Online's store blog.
I recently just got Lawn Fawn's My Silly Valentine stamp set, to make cards for school a whole lot easier to make! I paired it with the Hello Summer pad by Echo Park! I've gotten a lot of use from this pad!
I can't wait for Ariel to eat lunch and find her card! I also put a chocolate covered oreo pop in there! :>
Here are some photos I took this morning of Ariel:
I can't wait for her to come home and hear all about her day! :> Looking at the photos I can see how much she has grown! What a beauitful girl she is, not only on the outside but the inside too! I made the chalkboard canvas, saw it on Pintrest and have seen a lot of other crafty friends make it too! All I did was buy a canvas at the dollar store and paint it with Martha Stewart chalkboard paint!! I love this idea and plan to use it each year! :>
Well that's it from me! With only one kid at home today, we have his preschool open house later this afternoon, I am getting a lot of neglected cleaning done! Hoping to hit the craft table soon as I am inspired!
CATS, COPICS, & CONGRATS! Custom graduation card!
