Good morning everyone! I hope everyone had a fun and restful weekend! School time is almost here and I can't wait!!! My older boy is starting HIGH SCHOOL!!!!! and he is on the Football team!!! I have to admit something..... I do not like football! It just seems it can go on and on and on.............forever!!! I always wanted one of those stickers that read "Soccer Mom!" but none of my three boys liked it!!!!! I am hoping Abbita will!! ;) Worse thing is I have NO idea how football is played, so when I go see my son, I will not know what to get excited about!!! LOL

Anyways,  on to more crafty things! Last Saturday was Scrap Night over at Michelle's home! I love scrap nights!!! (btw she is a Peachy Keen Guest Designer this week and her projects are OVER THE MOON CUTE!!) I created three cards that night!! So happy because usually I just get one done! One was for a DT I will be on and the other two I made just for pleasure! It has been a while since I created something just because!! Here they are!!
