First Day of Grade 2!

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!
