It was a pretty busy day, but I really did manage to get this card made before midnight...I just had to recharge my camera battery before I could post it!
Today was our homeschool co-op. I teach a middle school writing class and I love it. I have a wonderful bunch of kids and they make it fun. Lately they have been really enthusiastic about writing which makes my heart happy :-)After school, the older two girls talked me into dropping them off at the mall so they could shop for Elizabeth's birthday. While they were shopping, I went and got a much needed haircut.
Then Matthew had his first swim meet. We missed his first heat, which he said he placed last in - it was the 2 meter (8 laps?) We were there for the second one though; he swam the backstroke and would have placed first except he didn't know that he couldn't turn around to touch the end when they finished (they could do that when turning and finishing the lap but not at the end.) So that disqualified him :-( . Still, his team won :-). I thought once my kids got older I would stop getting so teary eye when watching them in an activity such as sports or in a play or even singing in the youth choir...but nope, I'm still just as teary as ever!
Tonight Scott and I watched a 2 hour and 40 minute movie with Jay and Alyssa. It was called The Changeling and it was a pretty sad movie...and a true story. In between dinner and the start of the movie I managed to do most of the work on this card, using Life Delights paper pack, and You Are Beautiful stamp set, as well as a sentiment from the Priceless Love stamp set. I also used the watercolor brush.
I am soooooo hoping to get a layout done this weekend in between a Friday night debate for Michelle, and a Saturday birthday gathering for Elizabeth and church on Sunday. Plus I have a dozen thank you cards to make. (And then there's those little details of feeding my family and laundry...)
Wishing you a wonderful day,
Marie with a :-)
