Last Scrapbookaholic By Abby Challenge!

Hello crafty friends! Today, is a day full of changes... to start off... I start my new job today!! I am excited and very nervous... I have taught before, I was let go when I had my daughter due to budget cuts and I was ok with it because that meant I could stay home with her.... Didn't think I would be teaching so soon. Secondly, I remember when I started teaching back in 2000 and thinking "wouldn't be neat to be teaching at the same high school my boy would be going to" well, guess what? I am! :) Maybe not so much for him, but I LOVE the idea!! hehe 
Thirdly, today I get my stamp samples to test them out and make sure that everything is ok and if it is a go then I will have my stamps ready for launch in about 7 days!! Also, it is Abbita's second day of pre-school and she is loving it!!! 

BUT... behind all these good things happening... something is coming to an end.

Today is our very last Scrapbookaholic By Abby challenge :'(
I will have other challenges but with a different goal now.

I want to make sure that all my design team knows that I truly care for them and appreciate them very much. I hope you all had fun creating for these challenges as much as it was for me!! 

Thank You to my team for always bringing tons of fabulous inspiration to everyone!!

With that in mind I want to show you my project. I made these little cards for my DT!
