It is still crazy busy around here. Lots going on with cabana season rapidly approaching, testing, school. Ainsley is doing a bit better getting her work done. But it is hard going and she just flat out refuses some days. How do teachers do it? Dang...how did I do it with the other two. It isn't like I have never schooled a 9 year old before...heck, I have been doing this for 9 years....
Anyway, on to bigger...better and brighter. A few new projects with Echo Park papers.
This first one is using the For the Record papers that are available at Catch the Moments kits. I really loved the colors and patterns in this collection. They are a little less geometric than other collections I have played with and even have a bit of distressing. Right now you can get this kit for only $12.95! What a great price.
I have had this photo of Ainsley and some swim friends on my desk since last summer. It was taken at the cabana club the night of the overnighter. Not sure if I should have pulled it out afterall as thinking of the overnighter...staying up all night chaperoning, dealing with...well...100+ children all night and then cleaning up the mess...... But such a cute photo and the new Playground papers were perfect. I mixed in some Ruby Rocket chipboard, my favorite Thickers, a felt from Basic Grey. That blue flower???? it was made from a doodlebug paper frill. This was one of my sample pages over on Ideas for Scrapbookers for layouts with no squares or rectangles.
Well, lots to do this weekend. Fun stuff. I can't believe it, but Phil and I are going out, the two of us...on a date...with another couple we know. This will be the second time this week we have gone on a date! We went to a friends vintage release dinner Wednesday and now this tomorrow. Amazing huh. lol And I have tickets to tonights ballet. Woo hoo!!!! Adult stuff. hee hee
For now though...back to the children and the housework.
