1952

Noel's challenge this week was to create a heritage LO. I decided to use my MIL's pictures from when she was a young girl. Her dad and brothers are also in the picture. My MIL thinks maybe they were at a picnic.....sack races maybe? I used Noel's newest kit, Penny Arcade for the entire LO. I love all the vintage goodies in this kit! So up my alley! Gorgeous papers, beautiful flowers, doilies.........pure heaven! : )





Awwwww, aren't they cute?



The lady is from one of the packages of pearls in the kit.....how's that for being "green?!"


*** Had Cort's IEP today. Everything today was so positive and upbeat......so unlike any other IEP I've ever been to! I found out that my girl can read 25 words! She has surpassed all of her goals and her vocabulary and speech have grown by leaps and bounds! She is surrounded with teachers and therapists who truly care about her and see her potential. I've never heard so many compliments surrounding my daughter.........it was very touching. I am truly blessed that she is at this school! She is soooooo happy there! She is the only kid I know who wants to go to bed at like 6:00 PM, just so she can have school faster! LOL!


Off to get some craftiness done......Have a great night!
