Fast Friday

With Monday off, we zoomed straight ahead to Friday. Today was a quick day too. Little Miss had Early Release because progress reports are coming out on Monday already!! Can I admit to you all that words like Progress Report still bring a little stressful knot of anxiety from my stomach to the back of my throat? Doesn't help that it is someone else's progress report and not mine. Especially since it is my kid. Oh well, she is doing great. And the little guy got picked up after lunch. Then I took them in the pool. Then the little guy napped and Little Miss dressed up as part witch, part ballerina, part fairy.

Today the second half of the ScrapTiffany reveal was posted. This week's challenge was to do a cardstock only project--no patterned paper. Cardstock was actually my first love ;) I live about 15 minutes from the Bazzill warehouse so getting good cardstock is not an issue here. For this layout I used Bazzill kraft and brown cardstock and Coredinations cardstock from the Jenni Bowlin stack.
The star border is a wide EK Success punch.
I had to add a little Jillibean Soup sprout for journaling. Love those things.

I love how much my kids love school. I hope I can keep the excitement up for a long time.

The other big news this weekend is that 3 Scrappy Boys Back to School Crop is going on ALL WEEKEND LONG!! There are a ton of "classes", challenges and prizes up for grabs. Stop by, finish some challenges and chat for chances to win! I taught a stamping class and did this layout for it:

I used some Hero Arts and Studio Calico stamps and the goodies are from Echo Park's Happy Halloween line. I can NOT wait for pumpkin patch visits. So much fun!

Have a great weekend :)
