Something to think about...


Do you have a problem?  Check out Pink By Design's Company blog...

You just MIGHT have a problem!

Meanwhile...
Yes, I finally got inky and paper cuts!  Although it's a quickie...after the much anticipated Battle of the Books Award ceremony!! This is my team...minus one...on stage accepting their certificate and flaunting off their style.  Note A* in blue...mine...and very much the one who knows how to accessories!  Little does she know, but her baby brother sure cheered for our book group!

Here they are on Saturday....Battle Day...

So, with a killer headache...I whipped up this peekaboo card....

See, easy peasy when you have the Easter Window Files from The Cutting Cafe!

Here's what has been stamped on the inside.


Additionally, I used a sentiment from "Go Green" by Pink By Design.  
There so many outdoors-y/springy sentiments in this set!

So, we stayed late tonight...bought the book Diamond Willow by Helen Frost. It was on our book list...and she was the guest speaker!  I offered to get a book signed for a kid in her class whose mom seemed to need to go home instead of waiting to meet the author. Then I offered to take 2 sisters home b/c their dad works out of town all week long...and the preschool brother is quite a bubbly soul.  Especially for mom who has a baby in arms still!  So...I took the LONG way home...stopping at McDonald's to get the kids sundaes to celebrate the evening.

Now A* is waiting to be tucked in and this "give me 10 minutes" is probably more like 15.  

You gotta love hobbies..reading and crafting!
