Catching Up

I have another large collection of video clips on my blog folder. So here they are!! The first one is the kids feeding carrots to Grandma's horses this summer.

Here the boys are checking out the baby chicks in Papa Joe's store.

Happy Birthday Daddy!!

Happy Birthday to Daddy!! He turns 35 today :) We love you!!

Here is a picture of the card I made for him.

It was inspired by this week's Color Challenge from Color Dare. The colors to be used in this challenge are More Mustard, Bashful Blue, Chocolat Chip, and Kraft. The designer series paper (DSP) is retired Stampin' Up paper from Juntos and Summer Pinic. The bear stamp is from the Stampin' Up set, "Cheers to You". I used crystal effects and white dimensional fabric paint on the beer.

First Day of School

Monday was the first day of school!! Yipee!! Both Alan and Eddie are going to the same school this year. Alan is in First grade already and Eddie is in the full time PreK program with Alan's PreK teaching team.

It is our school year resolution to walk to school in the mornings. Here is a picture as we are arriving at the school on the first day. I was happy to have walked because the parking lot was a mess!!!

Here is a picture of Eddie with Ms. Hardy (she was Ms. Young with Alan and got married in May!! Congratulations Ms. Hardy. We will try to get your name right) and Ms. Powell.

Here is Alan outside his classroom. They are Templemen's Tornado's this year!!

Alan with Ms. Templemen

Had to include this great picture of Joey and Alan playing Wii on one of the last nights of staying up late while Daddy was TDY.

SIP Stampin' Up Challenge

The Stampin' Up Blog Challenge for August is a SIP (Stamps, Ink, and Paper)challenge!!! This is my speciality using ONLY stamps, ink and paper. That means NO extra bling like ribbon, brads, buttons. . . . .

I am really missing the Zoofari stampset that retired in June. I am really into tearing paper and had this pop in my head so I made an exception and decided to use it anyway. Most people that know me know I am obsessed with Red, Black and White and I always seem to be short on Thank You notes so here is my card. I used Basic Black, Whisper White, and Real Red.
