Don't Forget To Write


Hello...I decided to pull out my Don't Forget To Write kit and make a few thank you cards for end of the school year student gifts. I have to admit this is one fun kit to play with (and having a Misti so you can stamp over and over, and its perfect every time), just love everything that came in the kit! The first card I used a the patterned paper in the kit and for the reminder of them I used PTI"s Ombre Stripes. Just love these sweet little cards!

This is my first full week of for summer break! I have spent time cleaning out closets and cupboards, such a wonderful feeling to weed out old stuff we never use any more. And this was the first time that I have had to really sit down and play with my craft supplies.

I am also working hard to get caught up on commenting, so please have patience with me, I will make it to your blog very soon.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by...enjoy your week!

ColourQ #346


Hello....this is my first full week off and have already have a busy schedule. Yesterday I was up a 3am, too afraid I would sleep through my alarm set for 4am, even had a dream that she called me at 7:30 asking me where I was...wonder why our brains play dirty tricks on us. Took a dear sweet friend to Kaiser for out patient surgery and she needed to be there at 6am.  So I used this weeks colors for ColourQ #346 challenge to make her a get well card and wishing her a very speedy recovery!
I love PTI's Plaid Builder set and don't use it often enough and with Misti, it really makes it quick and easy. I hope you will find the time to play along with us this week, as always, I love seeing your incredible creations.
Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by...enjoy your week!



Last Wednesday was our last day in the classroom for this school year, we decided to have a slumber party at nap time, complete with movie and popcorn, my students loved it. We had so much fun!


Thursday was our official last day of school...we had a fabulous pool party in Livermore at an aquatic park. I was a nice sunny day and fabulous way to end the school year.
