Picture Day? ...and a GIVEAWAY :):):):)

Hi everyone :):):)


Thank you all for your well wishes and prayers on my sore back... it's still hurting a lot... but now I can at least walk better! Thank you again my friends! We have a busy weekend planned, so I am hoping the pain doesn't slow me down :):):):):):):):)



Today I have a layout over on the Blue Moon blog and I wanted to share it here too! :):):) (It will be live on the Blue Moon blog at 8AM MST) :):):)

Back in 2008... Brookie had a picture day at daycare... but NONE of the parents were told... so when we showed up that morning... Brookie wasn't quite dressed for the occasion! LOL!! She was still adorable though in her pictures they took! :):):):):)







And ONE last thing before I go.... today the latest challenge is live on Nikki Sivils blog! :):):):) This time we want to see something that you don't always make (like if you are a card girl, make a layout, or if you have never made an 8 1/2 x 11 layout... give it a go and so on!)...and I have to tell you, now that I have pretty much dabbled in everything from layouts, to cards, to altered projects to mixed media, to art journals... I had a REAL hard time trying to think of something I haven't done BEFORE...lol :):):):):) So, I decided that I was going to make a wall hanging, since I have made one of those in awhile :):):):):):):) So here is my wall hanging using "School is Cool" line! :):):):):):)

You will notice that the 'name' part is blank!! Well that is because I am going to give this one away to a fellow blogger that is a teacher!! So any of my friends that are teachers... please leave me a comment letting me know...and I will draw a name in a week to send this to one lucky teacher!! :):):) (I will add their name to this before I send it!) :):):):)

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :):):)

  5. Brooke looks adorable, but I see what you mean about not exactly dressed for Picture Day! Her hair has really darkened as she's aged and so looks so grown up now.

    I'm a former teacher, so don't include me. It would have been awesome to have in my classroom back in the day.
