New Release and new challenge at Paper Pretties

Well It's release day at Paper Pretties and we've got a new weekly challenge for you too.

This week's release is all about going Back to School.
I know I just heard cheers from the parents, LOL! School has been back for 2 weeks here and we're are settling back into our school time routine. So to help ease my daughter back into reading, I've created this little book mark to help. This new image is called Osbert.

I can bring home the bacon.....

When I saw this image from Sweet Stamping Treats I knew I had to work with it. This was so me when I was younger. I wanted to be the career woman, making my own way...now I just want to win the lottery so I can stop working. LOL! The image is called Working Woman and it's in the store under the category of "People".


The sentiment is from TLC Creations. I may be dating myself but I remember this song from a commercial back in the day. Now I can't get it out of my head. LOL!

Have a good evening

Back to Scholl!!!

School starts tomorrow! I am so excited, more than Cee is, I think. I am just looking forward to getting back to a schedule and having her on track and engaged. This summer she totally vegetated. I also like back to school time because of shopping. Right now is when I get the majority of my Christmas shopping done because EVERYTHING is on sale.

So I have a little back to school project to share with you today. The image I used is from The Stamping Boutique. The sentiment ticket came from TLC Creations.

The cute little pencil holder is courtesy of Deedee. I found the instruction on her blog, Stamping Sunshine.

Summer's almost over

Well it's official, summer is almost over. For me this summer went way to quickly and now it's gone. In less than a week, school will begin and we are back to our normal routine and homework, Oh My.

I have a card to share today. It reminds me of being young again and playing all day during the summer. The image is from Anne Fenton. She has freebies on her blog, here.

Growing up there was a field across the street from our house. All the kids played in that field and in the joining woods. (I was such a tomboy) Hanging out, catching butterflies and frogs. I want to be a kid again - except for school. LOL!

Off to finish dinner.

Take Care.

CDAC Progressive Challenge

The CDAC now sponsors a progressive challenge. I love the idea of progressive challenges because everyone's a winner. If you create you get the next image. So this is my first project with one of the available images.

This image come from Did Stamp 4 Joy. I decorated a bakery bag for my project . I had bought the bags around Christmas time last year from the Kraft outlet and then I ran out of time around the holidays. So now I have an early start on my Christmas things for this year. YAY me!
The sentiment is from TLC Creations.
