Greetings...

Why oh why does Monday come so fast? It feels like it was just Friday! Such a busy weekend we had! Saturday my sister, my mom, and I went to see my soon to be 89 year old grandma. It was such a sweet visit filled with memories and laughs! My Gram was in good spirits that day. Afterwards my hubby and I had a date. We had a lovely dinner and saw a movie at one of those "fancy" movie theaters. (You know the ones that serve beer/wine, and have love seats?) We saw Angels and Demons. Sort of a suspenseful, scary, thriller with a few twists.

Yesterday I got a scrappy page done for my Soulology work for Erika Martin. For some reason the LO took an extra long time to get done. (Which seems to be pretty typical these days!) After that page was done, I made a wedding card for Cort's teacher....which I will post later this week) And that's it! Two projects.......how pathetic!

I did create this Crafty Secret's card a couple of weeks ago and hadn't posted it yet. I used the Home Sweet Home set and my Copics for the main image. The paper is the citrus pack by DCWV .


I used yarn around the image and tied this pretty beaded flower to it! ( I Love the less bulky look of yarn sometimes!)



Well, off I go to get ready for work! Today is "twin" day! The other 5th grade teachers and I are dressing alike....so I guess we are triplets today! : ) (See the fun you have when you work in a school? Just wait until Crazy Hair Day! LOL!)
