Does anyone else feel overwhelmed  around this time of year?
Baseball games, teacher appreciation week, 8th grade graduation, all of the field trips for both boys, 8th grade dinner and dance, signing up the youngest for summer school, swim lessons, meeting w/new football coach for high school freshmen, weight training schedule,... 
I'm not listing all of this stuff to brag. It seems we, as a society tend to brag about how busy we are. My big question is, how do mom's or dad's that both work outside of the home do it? I'm baffled. And mostly, in awe of those of you who do all of the above, AND work a 40hr job. My hat's off to all of you who pull it off. 

Oh, and just one lil' scrappy set of tags here. 

 Back of the tag below. Room to put a special little greeting.

    Hope everyone has a fabulous wednesday!

Graduation and school colors....

How was your weekend? We had our first baseball practice, lots of rain and even a bit of snow. Come on spring... we need your sunshine!
I've been working on a graduation line of items lately.Cards, scrapbook embellishments, gift bags and another centerpiece paper bouquet. These can all be customizable with your favorite school colors! Take a peek!

Love red and black. Funny thing is, I love making OTHER people's school colors. My highschool (ages ago) , our school colors were orange and black. halloween colors. I was never fond of them .  Always thought a bright baby blue and black would look so cool. Oh well, wear your school colors with pride.
What were yours?

Baby buggies, baby buggies, baby buggies....say that fast 5 times...

Tuesday morning and I think I'm still sleeping as I type this. So funny how the days you want to sleep in (like the whole week of the kids spring break) ... you're up at 6am anyways. And then days like today when you have to get up? You could have slept till noon! Ok, well, maybe not noon. I haven't been able to do that for 10 years, but, at least 8am!
Two shabby chic cards today. Or are they now calling it "cottage chic" ? Anyone know the difference? Well, it's a style that I adore, but have never been good at. I so love all of the paper crafters that do all the shabby and vintage cards and layouts. Here's my "attempt" at it. The lil' babies are cute at least. Hope you have a terrific day!

2 cards, both made from doodlebug's "All boy" line.

Better get my day started! Hope everyone has a terrific week! I will be having my first blog giveaway starting THIS WEDNESDAY so be sure to come check it out !
