Today I have a CASE for you. I got this idea from Andrea Walford (www.andreawalford.com) and I loved her picture of the cards made from this Write Stuff Simply Scrappin package so much, I copied it down to the last detail. This paper was such a great deal because it came with heavyweight cardstock and all these cute die cut elements, like the notebook paper and stars. I bought an extra package before it retired, and I think I will make a set of cards for Alex's teacher with it. If you love this, too, keep an eye out at Stampin' Up's clearance rack--you never know when it may show up. You can get to the clearance rack by clicking on my Stampin' Up website link on the right hand side of my blog. There are some great deals there right now!
I hope to post some original creations for you soon. I have had quite the week. My little guy is getting his molars which has caused a horrible diaper rash. He had to be out of daycare for a few days. Thankfully he got to be with Grandpa Alan (my husband's Dad) on one day, and my Mom came up to be with him on Friday (She lives in the Twin Cities), and we have a great new thing starting on Monday. My sister is going to come up (she also lives in the Cities) and is going to be our Nanny for him during the week and then go home on weekends. She recently was laid off from her job, and we have been thinking for some time if we could hire a nanny we'd like to, so it's win-win. We can't wait for her to start and are thrilled that we have family that's so willing to help us out.
Speaking of family--I had promised last week that I would show you some pictures of my nephew who was here last week. Check out this cute one of him with my Jack. (The happy grown up faces on the sidelines are my mother and father in law :) ) They are 360 days apart-- :) Alex, my oldest, thought they were a lot of fun, but sure was glad he could escape to go play on the computer. We'll have more pictures that have the 3 of them after we are all together again at Thanksgiving.
Thank you all for stopping in!! Hope you are having a great weekend.
