Some of the week's highlights - Emma is very comfortable at school, package from my friend, Linda, worked on my first challenge for My Scrapbook Nook for National Scrapbook Day, Emma and I trying one of many new yogurt places around here...
I used lots of Echo Park paper, Pebbles flowers, washi tape, Studio Calico stamps, My Mind's Eye button and banner, an old Sassafras Lass flower, and even a little of my glitter border I made for my challenge layout over at the Nook.
Had to go for another breast ultrasound, finally the doctor could feel and see the spot I had been feeling and said it isn't anything suspicious, so thankful. It is stinking hot, I always want to move this time of year. Started working on birthday decorations because I know it will be a busy summer. My camera card died, and we visited the very last day of one of the many yogurt places that is now closed.
Used lots of Sketchbook by American Crafts, Studio Calico Stamps and paper.
Closeup of Emma at Orange Leaf for last time...
Closeup of her artwork that we took a double take...and me taking a photo of how stinking hot it is while driving in my car.
Emma is concerned that no one will come to her birthday party since it is during the summer...so after talking to the teacher, I decided to hand out invites with a "save the date." She was so excited to hand these out to her friends. I used a digital kit from Two Peas for the Banner, tag, and pin.
Just put a little stinker with journaling on the back...cut down an 8x8 protector and sewed it up and then slipped the invite into it.
I was ready to try something different now. Instead of the protectors with the pockets, I used this Heidi Swapp folder...the resist ones that you use mists or inks on...
Punched some holes in it using a protector as a guide, and put the photos for the rest of the weekend inside...the Mother's Day celebration at school, Dragon Boat Festival on Saturday, and Mother's Day with Wendy, Joey, Merrin, and their family.
Used more Heidi Swapp papers as well as Studio Calico and My Little Shoebox, washi tape, Pink Paislee rubon, the Heidi Swapp word sticker, American Crafts chipboard.
Emma looking adorable in her Hello Kitty sleeping bag. Then at the Dragon Boat Festival, I ran into a High School friend...it was so good to run into Ronnie, it had been a very long time!
Used the little file folders that fold out from Heidi Swapp for the rest of the photos.
Used some of the new washi tape I got for Mother's Day that I ordered from Freckled Fawn ;)
It was a nice change from doing the pockets. I kept it very simple trying to make it as quick as possible and not spending a lot of time or energy on it.
Pulled out some Dear Lizzy American Craft stickers.
I love the Heidi Swapp word stickers, I used them all up...I may need more!
And a close up of all of the ladies together. We were excited that Wendy invited us. Thank you Wendy and to her sister, Lisa, for letting us come over...we had such a good time...Emma says she is ready to come back!
