Well school is coming to an end and summer humidity and HEAT has set in.... Wow. See I knew when everyone was saying how COOOLLLLLDDDDDD it was this winter here in Louisiana that when the Summer got here it was going to be way more hot.... Flip flops, tank tops and capris are in high demand...
Jesse graduated from Kindergarden... His teacher gave out awards based on candy treats...Jesse got the Freedent gum award because his teacher says he is so free spirited, carefree and does not have a worry in this world. She is right. There is not much of anything that bothers him. He is like his daddy.
Jacob made Principals list and he was very excited. That means All A's for the end of the year. We are so proud of both of them...
Alexandria still has 2 more days of finals. She has been working very hard. I can't wait to see her grades.
Jasin has planned a trip to New York just me and him.... His birthday is the 4th of July so we are going that week. His brother lives there and we will be staying with him. I am really excited.
This weekend I had a class at the scrapbook store in Denham Springs...I stayed with Shelly the owner. It turned into a Birthday celebration for the store manager Anette. We went to eat at PF Changs, Scrapbooked at the store til late....slept in the next morning and went back to the store for the class and more scrapbooking....And ended with a visit to the mall for some fabulous Frozen Yogurt .
They got in some new Little Yellow Bicycle paper... I am loving the yellow and gray together and was a bit inspired by the paper....
I did a layout for me....For Matt and Stacy ( I hijacked a picture of Emerson, their daughter off facebook ) and for a lady who came in to the store with a fabulous senior picture of her grandaughter ( the lady was getting all her paper together and when I saw the photo I asked her if it would be OKAY if I scrapped the picture....She said YES)
For Matt and Stacy
For the lady who came to shop in the store!!!!!!
Prompt #31 for The Creative Type.... I had a blast digging through my stash... It is like a treasure hunt.... I always forget where I stash the good stuff.
I still had some creative juices flowing when I got home so I unloaded.....checked my emails.....found a challenge I was inspired by..... The Creative Type... Prompt #31 has a fabulous "go Green" theme. We all have more scrappy stuff than we can ever use....More stuff comes out in the stores and we have to have it.... Well their challenge is to use Rub-ons but to also use stuff out of what you already have. I challenge you....USE YOUR OLDER PRODUCT>>> you bought it cause you loved it now use it.....Scrappy doctors orders.
My friend Heather told me today that I always scrap Alexandria.... Well she is so beautiful and photogenic that I can't resist.... So as I started this post I realized I had 2 for her and none of the boys so I whipped up this one of Jesse at the park with dirt all over his face
I also scrapped a layout for Shelly, the owner of the store.... I don't have a pic though.
SIDE NOTE..... Let me just say that I am so excited about all my new friendships that have been developing through our common creative LOVE. Fabulous, real, genuine fun-loving women. Just beautiful women. Friends are wonderful to have, especially GOOD friends.
Thank you Shelly, Anette and Alicia for an absolutely amazing weekend. Sorry no pics.... What happens at the scrapbook store stays at the scrapbook store.... Hehehehehe. Just joking!!!! I left my camera in the car and just was having so much fun I did not take any.... As usual.
Hope you all are having a fabulous weekend. Big hugs from me. Amy
