Busy Weekend

Wow this week and weekend have been crazy.  There has been something to do every night and the weekend was action packed.  I started taking Italian this week, so far so good, I can say good morning and good evening lol.  Had my daughter's open house, her teachers seem really nice.  I had a baby shower yesterday and then we went to the Big E last night.  For those not in my area it's a yearly fair up in Massachusetts that runs for three weeks, it's huge.  There is a building for each of the New England states show casing food, products, etc.  That's my favorite part.  I eat my way through the buildings beginning right at Rhode Island where I have my clam fritters!  It took forever to get in and out of there this year.  Today I had my class "All About Hair" with the queen of cardmaking Suzanne Dean!!  It was at the Inspiration Station in Stafford, CT.  Her is me and the little skinny minnie queen!
It was a great class I learned a lot.  So back to work tomorrow.  Ugh.  Hope everyone had a great weekend.

Back To School Challenge

Wahoo!!  Love back to school, heehee.  My daughter started high school this year so the poor thing was a nervous wreck but so far it has gone really well!  (Knocking on wood).  The latest challenge at The Stamping Boutique is "Back To School" I made mine with my favorite lovely Audrey.
Check out what the design team has created.  So I'm actually running out of things that are available to watch on the computer on Netflix, so Netflix kept recommending The Survivors to me and I thought oh what the heck I will give it a shot.  This was a tv show from the BBC on post plague (love me a good plague) life.  So before I knew it I was completely and totally addicted.  However had I bothered to read about it prior to watching I would have read that it only made it two seasons and it was cancelled with a cliff hanger.  I almost cried.  This was the best show!!!!!  How did this show not make it?????  Apparently not everyone shares my love of the plague.  This was a tragedy my British friends.  Sigh.  So fortunately my second season of The Walking Dead discs should be in the mail tomorrow.  Hope everyone is having a good week, I'm trying despite this major disappointment. :)

Remembering 9/11

I'm sorry for the late post for this weeks The Stamping Boutique Challenge, life definitely got in the way this week.  This week's challenge is remembering 9/11, every year I'm amazed at how another year has gone by and we are remembering this tragedy. 
I'm not very good at putting my emotions into words so I don't mean to simplify what this day means to me, it was horrible and sometimes I have to force myself to think back to this day because it was and still is just overwhelming.  I pray for peace for everyone.

Card And A Wedding

So this past weekend was Mark's sister's wedding.  Super busy weekend but everything was so nice - everything turned out fantastic!  Here is a picture of the three of us, kills me that my daughter is taller than me now! I have heels on so you can't tell heehee.
I was a bridesmaid and Mark was an usher (he looks so handsome doesn't he??)   So I did manage to have a few minutes to make my card for the latest Stamping Boutique Challenge for Labor Day.
I used AJ the Farmer, nobody works harder than a farmer!  I don't know how they do.  Colored with Copics, the paper is from Close To My Heart, U used some twine and tied some twine in the wood buttons.  Hope everyone is having a good week so far I keep forgetting we had Monday off so I am putting myself a day behind!
