Back to School
Friday, September 4, 2009
You should HEAR my house. It's quiet. Very, very quiet. I can't believe this lack of sound. You see, I've been a stay-at-home mom for (gasp!) 17 years, 7 months. Not that I'm counting. I'm still at home, but as of this week, all of my kids are in school for the day. I saw this coming when my youngest entered kindergarten, but it's still a bit of a shock. But don't weep for me. See, I'm not wandering the house with nothing to do. I love it when they get off the school bus and the house is full of chaos and noise, but these 6 hours a day are mine, all mine.
I even have time to catch up on scrapbooking. So I created these pages of last year's first day of school. You can click on the picture to make it bigger. I give up on trying to figure out how to show off a two page layout on blogger and make it look good. Drat.
But how about some nice close-ups? That will do.
These new chipboard buttons from Close to My Heart are adorable. Love the mushroom!
I love "rolling" my stamps in a secondary color for a two tone effect. Don't the leaves look great?
